China-based supplier Belle Cosmic Manufacturing Co has launched portable UV disinfecting cases for the cosmetics packaging industry.
The UV disinfecting cases are designed for cosmetics products and can kill 99% of germs in just five minutes.
Using ultraviolet C (UVC) light with a wavelength of 220-280 nanometres is safer for humans, as per a study conducted by Hiroshima University.
The 222nm UVC light cannot penetrate the outer, non-living layer of the human eye and skin when compared to 254nm UVC germicidal lamps used in disinfecting healthcare facilities.
The study published in the American Journal of Infection Control found that it kills 99.7% of the SARS-CoV-2 viral culture after a 30-second exposure at 0.1 mW/cm2.
Belle Cosmic Manufacturing’s portable UV disinfecting cases are available in three sizes and designs including foldable case, small case and brush case.
Besides makeup products, the cases can be used to store other personal belongings including keys, glasses, money, and more.
Established in 1995, Belle Cosmic Manufacturing specialises in manufacturing sewing bags, paste works and handicraft items.
The company is SEDEX and ISO 9001 certified and performs other processes including printing, hot-stamping, debossed items and metal accessories production. It has a factory located in Dongguan, China.
The cosmetic cases were exhibited during Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week, the region’s leading B2B international beauty trade show.
