Defining the perfect toiletry accessories can be the difference between a 5-star or a 3-star review. If you’re in the hotel business, you know customers highly value a little essence of luxury. Creating a cosmetic pack for a hotel bathroom can actually be a simple process. Within this article, we will walk you through some ideas, solutions and offer up some products you can purchase today.
Hotel Toiletry Ideas
To start off, we need to think about – what is actually going to be put into each bathroom? Some common solutions include;
- Shower & Bath Gels
- Hand Creams (conditioners or enhancers)
- Body lotions
- Hair oils
- Face serums
- Bars of Soap
- Disposable Shavers.
These are the most typical toiletries that will be found in a hotel bathroom suite. You may find other offerings including; bath bombs, lip gloss, mascaras, nail varnish, baby wipes or makeup removers. These tend to be in very high profile hotel chambers and can be defined as luxury items.
Once you have decided which product you want to choose to be part of your range, it’s time to move onto what you want to put inside them.

In today’s market place, filling your line on toiletries can open up a huge selection of solutions. In order to simplify this process, it might be wise to come up with an easy way to look at the range of choices;

Refillable – Dispensing Solutions
The economy, environment and the need for sustainability are changing fast within the packaging industry. Many brand owners, commercial companies and domestic consumers are changing the way they think about single-use plastics. A sustainable option that is currently available is to concentrate on offering a longer-term product that can be refilled. Raepak offer quality products that will last for years and can be refilled on a domestic and commercial level. Hotels can put this to good use by concentrating on a line of products that stay in the hotel rooms and can be refilled on a daily basis. This would cut costs over the long stretch and make the hotel industry become sustainable while still offering its customers a quality product.
The personalised toiletry industry is a very exciting prospect. Designing a cap, bottle or dispensing pump that is unique to your brand identity that will hold stature in the hotel industry. Once you have designed your product using modern software packages such as CAD, you will now have to put your final product through tooling and testing. This can be a costly and slow process. We can help you with this procedure and offer up bottles, tubes or jars that will enhance your collection of toiletries.
