Cosmetic containers expand to a range of jars, bottles, pots, tubes, pens, compacts and liquid dispensing solutions. Each container offers a different design and solution; however, in the world of ‘cosmetic containers’, each product sits under the skincare, hair and beauty categories. This article will explore the different types of cosmetic containers available in the packaging industry. Raepak offers an extensive range of distinctive packaging products that enable us to explore innovations and keep an eye on exciting designs that are beneficial to the current market cycle.

Cosmetic Jar Containers

Cosmetic containers in the form of jars are perfect for skin care and beauty products. Jars can contain gels, creams, lotions and deep skin cleansing products. Most jar containers come with a shive (a flat plastic shelf that fits inside the jar) used to keep the contents free from foreign debris (dust & germs). Moreover, jars are designed with airtight lids, which keep the contents fresh and ready for future use.

Raepak use a range of materials in the range of jars available;

  1. PP Jars – Recyclable – Soft or hard plastic effect
  2. PET Jars – Recyclable – Glass, hard or soft plastic finish
  3. SANS Jars – Non-Recyclable – Glass, hard effect plastic
  4. ACRYLIC Jars – Non-Recyclable – used for luxury brands and high profile cosmetics.


Cosmetic Bottle Containers

Bottle containers can be produced as an airless recyclable container or a high-end luxury acrylic bottle. Acrylic bottles look fantastic with a matching jar and can store nourishing body lotions or face creams. PP airless bottles can also store creams and lotions. However, they are cheaper to produce and lighter in raw plastic material. Acrylic airless bottles are seen as a hybrid between both full acrylic and pp airless containers.

  2. ACRYLIC Bottles – Non-Recyclable – Luxury products
  3. AIRLESS Acrylic Bottles – Non-Recyclable – Luxury products.


Cosmetic Pot Containers

Cosmetic containers in the form of pots can be funky, stylish, trendy or sophisticated. Small pots for cosmetic packaging tend to be perfect for eye serums, aromatherapy oils, lip balm, hand creams or hair products.

Using these plastic combinations helps with the shape and aesthetics of the final jar design.
