People hesitate before choosing aluminium slug for tubes because they hear that aluminum is not resistant to corrosion and that most types of cosmetics are corrosive. As a matter of fact, however, you can see quite a few aluminium containers in cosmetic stores. Essential oil, for example, can be kept in tubes made of aluminium slugs. They are not popular with common people because they cost more in raw material, transportation and cosmetic filling.

Some are vacuum inside to protect liquid from oxygen and bacteria.
