Customer Success Stories – You Share Your Photos!

We absolutely love seeing all the creative and wonderful things that happen to our jars and bottles after they leave our warehouse, as looking at row after row of empty bottles each day does lose its appeal. So last week, we asked our lovely customers to send in some photos of their finished products so we could admire and show them off for you and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response! We apologise that we have not been able to feature all the photos we have been sent, but here is a wide selection of our favourite customer success stories!

Imagination Station

imagination station mcr 200ml clear PET plastic jar

Who knew you could turn a simple plastic jar into something so beautiful? Well the brains behind Imagination Station have done just that. They’ve used our 200ml Clear PET Plastic Jars to create these stunning works of art that are actually holding slime kits within! We don’t even know where to start with the sheer amount of work and skill it would take to make just one of these pots, so we take our hats off to you. Definitely one of the most unusual customer photos we’ve ever been sent!

Thanks to Sarah Bleasdale for sending these photos in.

Kamila Aubre Botanical Perfume

kamila aubre botanical perfume

From the visual exuberance to understated style; Kamila Aubre Botanical Perfume uses our 15ml Ace Glass Fragrance Bottles to bottle parfum extracts, which are traditionally made in small splash bottles. We think the simple, yet beautiful labels that these bottles are branded with add to the luxurious look of the finished product.

Thanks to Kamila Aubre for sending these photos in.

Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy

This birchgrove honey all the from Finland is packaged in our Glass Verrine Jars and finished off with eye-catching labels that perfectly let you know exactly what the product is (even if you don’t speak Finnish)! Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy is a relatively new company founded in 2017 and we think that they are doing a fantastic job with branding so far!

Thanks to Mehiläistarhaaja Humalajoki for sending these photos in.

That Soap

The rustic labels that That Soap uses to brand their ranges of beauty products are absolutely ideal for the type of products that they sell. They reflect the artisan, homemade products within whilst also looking professional and fit for the shelves of mass retailers. That Soap have used our Glass Ointment Jars and Amber Glass Dropper Bottles with pipettes to package their range of fantastic products in which are made all the way down in the South of France, for which we are very grateful!

Thanks to Julie Wackrill for sending these photos in.

No Frills Cosmetics

No Frills Cosmetics manufacture moisturiser and beauty serum using our Airless Dispenser Bottles as packaging, which are great for products made from all natural ingredients as product contamination is reduced, getting rid of the need to use preservatives. No Frills Cosmetics’ products are completely natural and designed for sensitive skin and not tested on animals. But the best thing about these cosmetics? A portion of the sales of each product is donated to the founder’s cancer support group and other nominated cancer charities! What a truly fantastic and heartwarming reason for starting up a business.

Thanks to Ann Mason for sending in these photos.

Pomme d’Or Gift Ideas

chill pill bath bombs

Now we don’t like to pick favourites, but these bath bombs from Pomme d’Or Gift Ideas might just take the top spot in our eyes… They’ve used our 1 Litre Round Clear PET Jar & 110mm White Screw Lid for this ingenious novelty product: Chill Pills Bath Bombs. What a great gift for friends and family who need a laugh! The clever labels are actually super simple in design, yet manage to jazz up the plain, clear jar to a professional standard – no wonder it’s their best seller. Top job guys!

Thanks to Anne-Marie Fowler for sending these photos in.

Velouté Body & Face Cream

These gorgeous face and body creams from Velouté Body Cream is packaged in our Black Arese Jars to give it that luxury look that it oozes. The black and gold colouring together elevates this product to the top end of the market, with customers also reporting that the shive within the lid of the jar is great for keeping the cream fresher longer!

Thanks to Carolyn Simpson for sending these photos in.

Damask Skincare

Damask Skincare‘s Hair Growth Oil is packaged neatly in our 50ml Glass Flask Bottle, which we think gives it a luxurious look and feel for the customers. It’s the perfect choice for this miracle oil!

Big Green Tree Natural Skincare

These hand and body washes wouldn’t look out of place on the shelves of The Body Shop or Boots, but they are in fact made by Big Green Tree Natural Skincare who are based on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire! Using our 150ml and 250ml Square PET Bottles and lotion pumps, they have created this sleek, stylish range of skincare products to keep Britons moisturised. If the names are anything to go by, we bet these products smell amazing…

Thanks to Helen Frear for sending these photos in.

Ma’s Bars

Ma’s Bars make sure to use locally sourced ingredients in their handmade ranges of beauty products, making them a great advocate for small business in Greater Manchester, where they are based. That’s why we’re happy that they have also chosen a local packaging supplier with Ampulla Packaging, as we too are from the area! These products have been packaged using our Clear PET Boston Bottles and lotion pumps.

Thanks to Helen Robinson for sending these photos in.

The Pamper Box

The Pamper Box offers bath and body goodies that are handmade fresh to order via their Facebook page, using a number of different items from our packaging ranges. For their jelly soaps they use our 120ml Clear Round Plastic Food Pots, the shower whips are packaged in our 150ml Clear Wide Neck PET Plastic Jars and finally, the foaming salts are bottled in our 250ml Clear Plastic Juice Bottles!

Thanks to Laura Burton for sending these photos in.

Birch Lea Soaperie

Nothing says rustic like the branding and labels that Birch Lea Soaperie have used on their fantastic sugar scrubs and body butters! Instead of simply sticking an adhesive label on, they’ve gone the extra mile and used string to tie their labels around the 200ml Clear Wide Neck PET Plastic Jars, which perfectly suits the handmade nature of the products. We love it and I’m sure their customers do too!

Thanks to Leanne Seymour for sending these photos in.

The Little Blue Hen Soap Crafting Company

These artisan soaps from The Little Blue Hen Soap Crafting Company is a vegan business, meaning that their soaps do not contain any animal products and are not tested on animals. They’ve even gone plastic free in order to reduce their impact on the environment! The soaps pictured above are packaged in our Glass Ointment Jars and Glass Simplicity Bottles.

Thanks to Michelle for sending these photos in.

Dandy Candies

The retro sweets that Dandy Candy sell offer their customers a nostalgic look back at their own childhoods! We absolutely love the old-school branding of the jars and the clever lollipop logo, and they even give customers to option to add a personalised message if they are sending sweets as a gift. Customers apparently love the look of the shine of the jar and the foil on the labels, which is very eye catching. Get the look yourself with our range of Plastic Sweet Jars!

Thanks to Sammie Key for sending in these photos.

Rainflower

Rainflower offers a wide range of products, including soaps, candles, hair care products and even gardening gifts! For their range of hand creams, Rainflower use our 50ml and 100ml PET Plastic Jars paired with aluminium lids, which are finished off with a lovely floral label on the lid.

Thanks to Sandra Robertson for sending these photos in.

Singleton Skincare

These beautiful cosmetics and candles are from Singleton Skincare, a producer of home and beauty items. We love the simple, yet distinctive, logo that is embossed across the whole range of products, which when combined with the mellow pastel colours of the labels, makes for a very attractive brand! Singleton Skincare has used our Aluminium Jars, Glass Votives and Plastic Lip Balm Tubes to package the products seen above.

Thanks to Sarah Singleton for sending these photos in.

K Tang

 

Last, but certainly not least, we have London-based K Tang; which is packaged in our 180ml Clear Plastic Squeezer Bottles. K Tang is a ketchup made using kimchi, a traditional Korean pickled vegetable side dish, which gives it a distinctive tang that is perfect for burgers, chips and avocado (apparently)! We think the design of the logo fits K Tang’s young, alternative target market down to a tee!

Thanks to Stephan Fowler for sending these photos in.

Deals On Plastic E-Liquid Bottles

The rise of the use of e-cigarettes (or vaping) has been astronomical in recent years, thanks to its reputation as a healthier alternative to regular tobacco smoking. But cigarettes need e-liquid and that’s where savvy retailers come in! Now is the time to cash in on this trend and, luckily for you, we’ve got great plastic e-liquid bottles for you to take your signature scent to the masses in style!

We have 4 different plastic e-liquid bottles that range in sizes from 5ml up to 15ml, with a choice of white, natural or clear colours. The opaque bottles are made from LDPE (low density polyethylene) which is squeezable to makes dispensing e-liquids quick and easy, whilst our clear bottle is made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate), which offers the same properties but also allows customers to see a fill line and the colour of the e-liquid within.

Our smallest bottle is the 5ml Natural LDPE Dropper Bottle, which is ideal for offering out samples of your e-liquid flavours to new customers. The bottle comes complete with a 14mm Screw Cap, as well as having a dropper funnel insert which is the perfect size for filling an e-cigarette chamber. These bottles are priced at 31p each, but if you buy in larger bulk quantities they can be yours for as little as 19p per unit! The next size up is our 10ml Natural LDPE Dropper Bottle, which is exactly the same as the 5ml version, just double the size! However it isn’t double the cost, with prices starting at 30p per bottle but going down as low as 17p per unit when you buy in bulk.

plastic e-liquid bottles

If you want a transparent bottle, then our 10ml Clear PET Dropper Bottle is what you need! This is the perfect option if you have a particularly brightly coloured e-liquid that you want to catch your customers’ eyes with. It’s slightly taller than its LDPE counterpart, but still has a dropper insert and compatible screw cap to complete the look and lock in the freshness of your e-liquids. Prices start at 31p per unit and go as low as 18p per unit when you buy in larger quantities. Finally, the largest of our plastic e-liquid bottles is the 15ml White LDPE Dropper Bottle, which is completely opaque to give you plenty of different design options when creating your labels and avoiding colour clashes with the e-liquid within. The compatible screw cap is tamper-evident (as are all the other caps mentioned in this post), which gives your customers peace of mind about the quality and safeness of the product. These bottles cost 31p per unit, going down to as little as 16p per unit when bought in bulk.

So what are you waiting for? Mix up your own e-liquids to make at home and save money, or stock up on packaging for your range of e-liquids to sell in-store or online!

Be as cool as this guy…

Global Marketing Fails And How To Avoid Them!

If you’ve got a fantastic homegrown business that is going from strength to strength in the UK market, so it’s only natural that you want to expand your products into new global markets. The amount of global marketing fails that have happened in recent years since the advent of the Internet in a ‘global marketplace’ are truly astonishing! Here are our tips for up-and-coming brands who want to take their businesses to the next level in foreign markets, whilst avoiding mistranslations and cultural gaffes.

Make Sure That Your Brand Name Or Slogan Translates Correctly

Did you know that in Quebec, the French speaking province of Canada, the fried chicken brand KFC is known as PFK? This is because the province has such strict naming laws that the French translation of Kentucky Fried Chicken had to be used, therefore it became known as Poulet Frit Kentucky (PFK)! This is an example of a brand that had to tweak its name to fit into the market, but other brands have not been so fortunate with their launches in new countries! The former mobile phone company Orange ran into difficulty when it tried to launch in Northern Ireland in the 1990’s. As you can imagine, their slogan of “The future’s bright, the future’s Orange” didn’t go down particularly well with the large Catholic population, who clashed with the Orange Order of Protestant Loyalist during the Troubles…

Some more amusing global marketing fails include:

  • Pepsi launched into the Chinese market with the slogan “Pepsi brings you back to life”, which translated as “Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the grave”.
  • The American Dairy Associations’ slogan of “Got milk?” didn’t quite work in Mexico, where it was translated as “Are you lactating?”.
  • Non-English businesses can also suffer when they try to launch products in English speaking countries. In 2005, IKEA launched their ‘Fartfull’ workbench, which made people giggle for obvious reasons…

It’s a good idea just to pop your brand name, product names and slogans into Google Translate before committing to them in the global market!

Differentiate Your Product Range

One huge global brand that has managed to completely dominate the fast food market in over 100 countries around the world is, of course, McDonalds. Now here in the UK, we may think that McDonalds is just a simple burger and fries chain, but it has managed to change its menu around the world to appeal to local tastes with huge success! For instance, in India you can enjoy a McCurry Pan (curried vegetables baked in a cream sauce inside an edible pan constructed from bread), in Hong Kong you can order Sausage ‘n’ Egg Twisty Pasta (exactly what it sounds like), whilst over in Croatia you can grab yourself some McToast (cheese and ham pressed in pitta bread). The Bacon Roll is also the only item on the UK menu which is exclusive to the UK. Who knew?

Coca Cola has also announced this week that they are going to introduce an alcoholic variety of their famous drink in Japan, in order to appeal to the growing market for them amongst young people in the country. This is a prime example of how a massive global brand has to constantly reassess their product range and brand to keep up with changing demand, in order to grow and stay relevant in their different markets, but this also applies to smaller companies just starting out in the global marketplace.

Product differentiation is absolutely essential for brands that have a large spectrum of product ranges, such as fast- food restaurants, however it can work in the opposite way. Some brands’ unique selling points are the fact that they do not assimilate in to culture of their target market. Examples include Rolls Royce, Jaguar, McVities and HP Sauce, all of whom deliberately play up their British heritage and personality to appeal to differing markets and use it as a by-word for high quality. Whether you go for this tactic or not depends on the product or service that you are offering!

Adapt To The Local Culture

Let’s say you’re a producer of a range of meat-based food products and you want to expand into the Indian market. You need to consider that in India, beef is not widely eaten as the cow is a sacred animal in Hinduism (a large percentage of the population are Hindus). This would mean that you may have to adapt recipes to appeal to that market, that you wouldn’t do in other markets. This culture shock doesn’t just apply to recipes, but also the ethos and idea behind your brand.

Airbnb had a struggle when they initially launched in Japan, where the whole idea of home-sharing and uncertainty was simply not part of the culture, where people are more reserved. The company managed to counteract this through their friendly, approachable and accessible customer service and brand image, which encourage the Japanese to get involved!

Comply With Product And Packaging Regulations

Finally, you will need to make sure that your packaging companies with the rules and regulations of your export country. For example, China has now just introduced new regulations in regards to monomers and polymers which differ from current EU regulations. Luckily, here at Ampulla we have a wide range of UN certified packaging, including stackable containers and round cans, that are suitable for use in many different countries, including the products below.

 

If you’re looking to export bulk quantities of your product then our range of stackable containers are ideal for packaging them, due to being designed to be stacked up in large orders for transport. Sizes for our UN Stackable Containers range from 1 litre up to 25 litres, in natural, white and blue colours and a choice of lids. Our UN Round Cans come in sizes ranging from a small 250ml up to 2 litres, with screw top lids in various colours included.

Feeling Saucy?

Sauce Bottles For Every Occasion

Ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, salad cream, vinegar, barbecue… there’s nothing we like more than to slather our food in these delicious condiments and sauces! For cafes, restaurants, fast food joints, having a wide range of sauces readily available is so important to keep customers happy. Whether you are a wholesale manufacturer of sauces, a restaurant owner or a new sauce brand looking to sell to the mass market, we’ve got plenty of packaging options for you!

For Wholesale & Catering

First up, our largest available sauce bottles: HDPE Sauce Bottles. These 4 litre monsters are ideal for use in burger vans, market stalls and cafes, due to the fact that they are large enough for customers to self-serve their own sauces and only have to be topped up or replaced every few hours or days depending on how your trade goes! We sell four varieties of our 4 Litre HDE Sauce Bottles: brown with screw cap, red with screw cap, brown with pump dispenser and red with pump dispenser. The choice of colours suit nicely to packaging tomato ketchup and brown sauce, but the decision is up to you! For wholesale business-to-business sales of sauce, then we recommend choosing the screw cap option in order to ensure secure transportation of goods, whilst cafes and stalls would ideally use the pump dispensers as it allows customers to dispense the sauces themselves. As well as being perfect for storing ketchup and brown sauce, these versatile containers could also be used for cooking oils and other foods.

large plastic sauce bottles

Our 4 Litre Brown HDPE Sauce Bottle with Screw Cap will only set you back as little as 75p each when you buy in bulk quantities, or from £1.15 each in smaller orders. The screw cap is tamper evident, meaning that your customers have peace of mind about the quality and integrity of your sauce. The 4 Litre Red HDPE Sauce Bottle with Pump Dispenser will cost you as little £2.42 per unit when bought in bulk and starts from £3.72 per unit when bought in smaller quantities.

Browse all our HDPE Sauce Bottles here.

For Mass Market & Everyday Home Use

Obviously our 4 litre sauce bottles are way too big for the general public to take home and use at dinner time, so we have a number of alternative options for you to sell your sauce brand to the mass market – perfect for supermarket shelves! All of our plastic sauce bottles are made from PET, which is fully recyclable and a lighter, more durable alternative to glass. They come in many shapes and sizes, with the option to buy with or without a choice of lid, which include flip tops, pouring caps and screw caps, for sauces that can be used regularly by the whole family.

plastic sauce bottles for home use

Our smallest plastic sauce bottle is the 150ml Square Plastic Bottle, which comes complete with a pouring cap that has a tamper evident pull seal. This bottle can be yours for just 94p per unit, or as little as 54p each when you buy in bulk. A slightly bigger option is our 180ml Plastic Squeezer Bottle, which comes with a flip top cap. This bottle is flexible and squeezable, so you can get all the saucy goodness out without much waste! Only 55p each, down to 37p each when you buy in bulk quantities. Finally, our 187ml Plastic Bottle is more suitable for dispensing thinner dressings such as vinegars and oils, rather than thick sauces like mayonnaise and ketchup. They will cost you only 56p per bottle, going down to a tiny 39p per bottle when bought in bulk quantities.

Browse the entire range of plastic sauce bottles here.

For Restaurants, Cafes & Local Producers

Plastic bottles just won’t cut it when you’re in a restaurant or cafe, so that’s where our glass sauce bottles come in! They’re sturdy, attractive and give off a more luxury feel than plastic does, making them ideal for placing on restaurant tables for customer use. As well as for use in food outlets, these glass bottles are more than suitable for selling high end sauce brands to the mass market.

glass sauce bottles

If you need a small bottle to store your oils and dressings, then our 100ml Dorica Bottle is what you’ve been looking for! It comes complete with a 31.5mm black, tamper evident pourer cap, which is ideal for thinner sauces and gives a traditional look to your product. They can be yours at prices starting from 83p per bottle in small quantities, going down to as little as 51p each when bought in larger quantities. For an even more dramatic pouring effect, then look no further than the 100ml Marasca Bottle & Silver Pourer. The long spout of the pourer cap is made to give you more control about the dispensation of your drizzles and dressings, as well as just looking fantastic! Prices start from £1.74 per unit, going down to around £1.16 per unit when bought in bulk. Last, but certainly not least, check out our 10oz Vinegar Bottle, which is perfect for guess what? Vinegar! These bottles are great value, with prices starting from £1.42 each and just 87p each when bought in bulk quantities.

Benefits Of Aluminium Packaging

Whilst glass and plastic are great materials for packaging due to their mass usage, recyclable properties and ease of purchasing, it seems that aluminium packaging tends to get overlooked. So why should you pick aluminium as your packaging material?

Why Pick Aluminium?

The benefits of using aluminium packaging are many and varied, with one obvious plus point being that it gives off a sleek, professional and attractive look, with the sheen bouncing off the metal exterior. This makes aluminium the ideal packaging material for luxury cosmetic brands, as well as glossy haircare products. As well as being visually appealing, aluminium is lightweight and 100% recyclable! Aluminium can be recycled into a brand new aluminium product within 60 days of being put into the recycling system, which theoretically can be repeated up to 6 times a year. This saves enough energy to make 160 new aluminium cans!

Aluminium also acts as an excellent defence against contamination from bacteria and other micro-organisms, as it has an impermeable surface that keeps out air, light and liquid. This makes aluminium packaging absolutely perfect for food and pharmaceutical products, where the integrity of the product is very important!

Our Best Deals On Aluminium Packaging

We have a wide range of aluminium bottles and jars to suit every need. Whether you need aluminium tubs and jars for cosmetics or bottles to dispense your lotions and cleaning products from, we’ve got the right item for you. Our aluminium bottles are lined with epoxy/phenol formaldehyde (EPA resin) to makes sure that the contents of the bottle do not come into contact with the aluminium directly, which can affect the taste or integrity of your product. The beauty with our bottles is that they are compatible with a massive array of different closures, including screw top caps, lotion pumps, trigger sprays and atomiser sprays, meaning that they are suitable for a huge variety of products, from deodorant to hand wash! Our aluminium bottles come in sizes ranging from 50ml up to 1 litre, all of which come with multiple cap options (or no cap at all!) Take a look at a few of our favourites…

Our 50ml Aluminium Bottle is the smallest aluminium bottle we currently stock, which comes without a cap included. We think that it’s perfect for travel-sized deodorants or small quantities of bath and body products. This bottle is only 73p per unit, a price which can be discounted further to around 47p per unit when you buy in bulk quantities! If you’re thinking of launching or re-packaging a range of hand creams or foundation, the 150ml Aluminium Bottle with Lotion Pump is just what you need. The lotion pump has a standard length (170mm) dip tube which can be easily trimmed down to size, making it easy to dispense the contents. The bottle and the lotion pump together costs just £1.63, with prices going down to around £1.06 when you buy in bulk. Finally, we have our largest sized bottle, the 1 Litre Aluminium Bottle with Trigger Spray. Once again, the trigger spray cap has a dip tube that can be trimmed to your preferred size, to apply a mist application. This makes this bundle an ideal packaging option for hair sprays, cleaning products and much more! The bottle and trigger spray together costs £4.97, going down to around £3.23 when bought in bulk quantities.

January is a time for reflection, forward thinking and starting to get our lives in order! After the excess of Christmas and New Year, now is the time to start the health kick – and of you’re a health, nutrition or wellbeing company, it’s time to start cashing in! Our ranges of health and wellbeing packaging covers all bases: from nutritional supplements to skin care, and all at fantastic prices to keep your business costs down. Take a look at some of our great deals below.

Large Plastic Jars

Our range of large plastic jars are absolutely perfect for packaging health products including protein powders and superfoods, such as moringa powder, whey powder and chia seeds. Our 750ml Clear PET Plastic Jar is the smallest size of large plastic jar that we stock, with a black screw cap included in the price. The screw cap features an IHS (induction heat seal) lining when, which used with an induction heat seal machine, forms a foil seal over the neck of the jar to lock in your products’ freshness. Buy 1 unit for £1.6o, or buy in bulk to get the unit price as low as £1.08 per unit!

A slightly bigger version of out jars is our 1 Litre PET Power Packer, which comes with an attractive, opaque, glossy black finish. We can just see this jar on the shelves of a sports shop or gym, full of protein powder! The black colour is striking and will easily catch peoples eyes, especially if you pair it with punchy branding on the jar’s large surface area. Starting from just £1.83 per unit, but going down in price to only £1.19 per unit if you buy in bulk!

Our 1.5 Litre PET Plastic Jar is made from lightweight PET plastic, which is one of the most eco-friendly plastics to use as it is fully recyclable and can be reused over and over again. A compatible white PP screw cap is included in the price of the jar, which features an IHS liner but can also simply be used as a standard screw top. The clear plastic shows off your product with clarity and leaves plenty of room for you to add your branded labels. Prices start from £2.06 per unit, going down to £1.34 per unit when you buy in bulk quantities!

Finally, one of our largest plastic jars is our 3 Litre Black PET Power Packer, suitable for the mass storage and packaging of nutritional powders and other health supplements. It’s ideal for business sellers who sell in bulk regularly, but is also more than suitable to sell straight to the customer, both in store or online. This jar is also available with a black lid, which as with out other jars, comes with an IHS liner within to keep your product fresh. Prices start from £3.07 per jar, but go down to as low as £1.99 per unit when buying in bulk.

Pill & Capsule Jars

As well as powders, health supplements often come in the form of pills and capsules, such as cod liver oil, calcium tablets and multivitamins. Our plastic pill and capsule jars are perfect for packaging these types of products, as each jar comes with a hinged, tamper evident lid for easy dispensation and to give your customers peace of mind about the quality of their product. Our smallest pill jar is the 50ml Clear PET Plastic Pill Jar, which is great for packaging small quantities of health supplements, perhaps in the form of powders or tiny tablets. Prices start from 39p per jar, with the unit price going down to just 24p when you buy in bulk quantities. For larger capacities, our 150ml PET Plastic Pill Jar is the jar for you. This jar is just 53p for one unit, going down to 35p per jar when bought in bulk.

For something a little different, choose our 150ml White PET Cylindrical Pill Jar! The plastic used is glossy and opaque so that the contents inside cannot be seen, which actually gives you more design options for your branded labels. The 150ml capacity is perfect for single person use over a number of months (depending on the recommended usage of the supplement inside) and the PET plastic is food-safe, making it suitable for nutritional supplements as well as medical. This jar starts from 58p, going down to just 39p each when you buy in bulk. Our largest pill jar is the 250ml Clear PET Plastic Pill Jar, featuring a glossy appearance that gives the illusion of being made from glass! It’s large size makes it a great option for family size packs of health supplements that can be sold to the mass market.

Cosmetic Jars

Not all health and wellbeing products are simply medical! Keeping your skin supple and glowing is essential to looking and feeling healthy, and our range of cosmetic packaging is ideal for storing your skin care miracle products. Our tiny 5ml Clear Plastic Jar comes with a white screw on lid that has a tight fit to ensure that your product does not spill or leak from the container. We think that it’s the ideal size for packaging your range of premium lip balms, as the shallow, wide jar offers your customers easy access to the balm inside with just the touch of a finger. Prices start from only 24p per unit, with the price going down to a tiny 13p per unit when you buy in bulk quantities.

A great jar to store hand creams or face moisturisers in is our 15ml Black Frosted Arese DW Jar. This jar is double walled; featuring an inner shive to protect the product within. This avoids mess and gives the jar a sleek finish. This jar also comes in a white colour and in many different sizes. Prices start at 71p per jar, with the price going down to as little as 46p per unit when you buy in bulk.
