1. What is your product made up of?

As you will imagine, the first thing you need to know before choosing a bio-based packaging is the composition of your product. If it contains ingredients that could damage certain types of bottles (such as too much alcohol, for example), some containers will not automatically be eligible for your item.

2. Where will it be held?

Even the place of preservation is absolutely relevant for biobased packaging, which in addition to the internal composition of the product, will surely be exposed to external factors such as sunlight, heat, cold, pressure, etc. This is why it is important to know accurately (and in advance) what the life cycle of the final product will be.

3. How long?

In other words: how long will your product (and consequently the bottle) be subjected to internal and external agents? For example: how long will a particular jar containing a face cream be subjected to heat? Will it be boxed and then subjected to pressure due to packaging? Will it be necessary to keep it at temperature? If yes, at what temperature and for a maximum period of how many minutes / hours? All these questions are fundamental in order to find the right packaging for your product.

4. Does your product fear humidity?

Or rather, does it risk losing its properties (for example the consistency or a particular action) if subjected to very humid environments or, on the contrary, too dry? Which is the best place to preserve its status perfectly?
