Clear acrylic cosmetics organizers are scratch resistant and stand up to harder impact than glass or other types of plastic, making them a safe and secure storage option. The clear material also allows the user to easily see all the items inside the organizer.
Acrylic organizers may be made from cast acrylic or extruded acrylic. Because cast acrylic tends to produce a more transparent finished product, clear acrylic organizers are likely to be made from cast acrylic. This type of acrylic is scratch resistant, impact resistant and nonmalleable.
Acrylic is a better insulator than glass. Certain types of cosmetics may be sensitive to heat and overly cold temperatures. Storing these products in an acrylic organizer can help preserve the cosmetics, reducing the likelihood of heat damage or drying.
Organizers made from clear acrylic also keep the cosmetics visible even while the unit is closed. This is a potential time-saver, as the user can see what is in each drawer or compartment and locate items easily without having to remove drawers or other cosmetics. When purchasing a clear acrylic organizer, buyers should look for one with jointed rather than bent corners. Acrylic must be heated in order to be bent, and this process may damage the structural integrity of the material. Bent corners have the potential to crack and discolour, while jointed corners should remain structurally and aesthetically sound.
