  • Face Cleanser - Refillable option - Is it safe to use one pump for a long time?

    As the pumps are not recyclable, I’m considering a refillable option for a face cleanser. It would be sold as a glass bottle + plastic cap and the user would use the same pump. Is it safe to use one pump for a long time?

    Consumer practice will control safety.  Will they rinse out pump? Will pump eventually clog - is the ump robust enough to survive “long time” use?  Will the pump soil?
    Think you need to run some consumer use studies.
