How to Choose the Right Lotion Pump

When choosing a lotion pump, make sure to choose one that's lock-down and has superior viscosity and priming capabilities. While the Cream pump is designed for a thicker liquid, the Lotion pump is made to handle a thinner one. In addition to lock-down features, the Lotion pump is also recyclable. Read on to learn more about the different types of lotion pumps and how to choose the right one for your needs.
Cream pumps are designed to handle a thicker liquid product
A cream pump is a type of pump that is specifically designed to pump a thicker liquid product. They have a nozzle with a more precise finish that is commonly associated with cream-based solutions. A cream pump also has a cap to keep its contents fresh and prevent hardening around the central hole. Cream pumps can be used to pump face and body creams, suntan lotions, hand and hair products, and decreasing or greasing solutions.
Lotion pumps are lock-down pumps
A common question from customers is whether lotion pumps are lock down. The answer is yes. Lock down pumps are designed to prevent the pump from being opened without the product being dispensed. Lock down pumps are often non-stock items. They come in a variety of neck sizes and can vary in construction and design. If you're not sure, you should ask your account manager for more information. They can help you make an informed decision about which pump type will best suit your needs.
They can be recycled
Despite their high-volume use, lotion pumps are not always the most environmentally friendly packaging options. While most lotion pumps are composed of plastic, many are made of metal. Plastic lotion pumps, however, can be recycled with other plastic items. Whether these pumps can be recycled or not depends on the particular manufacturer. It is best to find an eco-friendly company that uses recycled plastic in its packaging. The best way to do this is to buy your cosmetics in bulk and refill your dispenser with them. You can eliminate anywhere from ten to twelve plastic bottles from your collection every year.
They offer superior viscosity and priming capabilities
Lotion pumps offer many benefits over other types of liquid pumps. In addition to superior viscosity, these pumps also have excellent priming and drainage capabilities. You can choose from 1.2cc to 30cc outputs and various types of pumps that protect your product from water ingress. Lotion pumps are used in the personal care, hair care, pet care, household, chemical, and automotive industries. Various pumps are available, so you can choose the right one according to the bottle size and the quantity of the product. 
They are simple to store
Lotion pumps are a convenient packaging solution for most brands. They can be kept on a surface, and the user simply needs to press the pump and catch the dispensed liquid. Lotion pumps have the added advantage of not clogging, as is the case with other types of dispensing bottles. This is due to the unique housing design of lotion pumps, which allows air to flow into the bottle to create pressure. The air flow keeps the liquid from drying out.
