Luftdurchlässigkeit
Explanation:
Although air tight means luftdicht, air tightness is usually translated with Luftdurchlässigkeit ( http://www.juzo.de/phlebo-97/vortrag/v34.html ) rather than the longer Luftundurchlässigkeit or Luftdichte (as the latter means air density).
Cheerio,

luftdichte Verpackung ?


Explanation:
I'm just guessing, but that seems to be the only context that makes sense here. You'd obviously want your cosmetics product sealed air tight in order to ensure a reasonable shelf-life.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
