Ever wonder how all those little tubes, with facial lotion and tooth paste get into the boxes, you thought it was some poor women who sat hunched over a conveyer belt, wanting to dance naked just to liven the place up a little. Well no it is actually a tube cartoner that does all the work, the tubes are filled with your favorite beauty treatment and then shoved along a belt and processed through the machine until they finally come out all packaged up in their nice little boxes. Kind of takes the personal touch out of the whole thing doesn’t it.
The only time your product gets the hands on treatment is when they are researching the substances to go in the lotion, masks, and ointments and so forth and so on and then it is off to the factory floor where the end result is thrust into tubes and packaged with machine efficiency. Of course this makes sense after all imagine how much it would cost to hire all those people, to individually fill each tube and then fold up little boxes for the creams to go into. Not to mention how much extra time it would take, makes you wonder why the cost efficiency is not translated to the consumer.
Tiny little tubes cartoned up and then sold for astronomical prices on the shelves but of course it must be because of all the highly expensive ingredients, um cocoa butter and coconut oil are not really all that pricey to make, so there must be another reason, oh yeah they like to rip us off. The beauty industry is not the only business that uses the technology, any product that comes in a tube uses the system to fill and package the product.

When you come to think of it there are a hell of a lot of substances that come in tubes, toothpastes, lotions, balms, ointments, hair treatments, shampoo and conditioners, paints and cosmetics. Then there all the different brands, these machines must be found all over the world, industrious little bastards. To start with humans must have done this job, making sure all the products were the same and then cartoning them up, busy fingers making a tedious living but at least it was work and the price of the product could be explained by the expense of manufacture and packaging and then off to shipping. Surely then when the machines were brought in, the long term saving could have been worked into the cost of the merchandise. From non slip floors Perth to shelf there would have been a significant saving for the companies in question, I do not however remember any such lowering of prices in connection with anything I use. Hmm I wonder why that is, well the extra house the boss now owns might explain much or the all record profit made in the last financial year, wonder how that came about, not from record sales I bet.
