This makes the cosmetic product vulnerable to the spread of bacteria and fungi and lead to troublesome skin conditions possibly harmful to our health. Generally, polypropylene (PP) material is used for cosmetic containers that come in direct contact with cosmetic ingredients. However, more recently, many consumers demand harmless materials to the human body for cosmetic containers and provide antimicrobial ability to prevent invisible microbial growth because of the direct application to human skin.
