The product offers a lot of advantages to the customers, which is why the consumer buys the product and become loyal customers. However, new research has shown that cosmetic packaging is as important as the product itself. The attractive and eye-catching presentation of the product compels the consumers to buy it.
Many factors render cosmetic packaging as important as the product itself. Following are some of the reasons why cosmetic packaging should be as good as the product itself:
International or national products are shipped from one country to another and from one city to another. Whenever a product is shipped, there always remains a risk that the product can get damaged during the transporting period. To protect the product during travelling, packaging must not be treated as irrelevant or afterthought. All the necessary precautions must be taken so that the product may not be damaged.
The packaging of the product influences customers’ decisions to a great extent. Many times, the product is not liked due to its packaging. Indecent and ahead of its time packaging leads to the failure of the product.
The market's packaging trends should be kept in mind when choosing the packaging. This does not mean that the customers are moron or illiterate, it rather means that customers have no time to judge a product through its pros and cons. So, customers’ decisions are influenced by the packaging of the product.
If your product is prone to breaking or getting spoiled during the travelling period, the retailer will not buy your product again. The failure of the product starts in the first phase. Shelf impact is the visual effects produced by the packaging of a product to other products within the same category. Each colour exerts its psychological effects as well. So, a retailer may just drop your product because of its colours.
So, a shopper’s mind is extremely influenced in the context of what one packaging may look like against the packaging of another product.
Packaging increases the value of the product in the sense that if the packaging is done according to the recent market trades and standards, the packaging increases the value of the product. Thus, the product is given preference for another product due to its packaging.
When the product is kept in the shelves of the shop, the customer is attracted by the appearance of the product first. According to the researches of cosmetic companies, the product sale was booming due to its packaging. So, the packaging of the product finalizes more sales of the product than a few could happen.
Therefore, the packaging of the product is as important as the product itself.
