Learn why more companies are switching to plastic jars with lids for their cosmetic packaging.
Cosmetic Packaging Now offers two different types of plastic jars with lids: airless jars and acrylic cosmetic jars. In this article we will break down the differences between the two to help you narrow down which plastic jar with lids is the best fit for your product.
Airless plastic jars with lids are the wave of the future and use an airless delivery system that protects your product from oxidation. Using pressure, a vacuum is created and releases the product once the valve on the jar is activated. The base, plate, and pump are the three parts that make up these airless plastic jars.
- Base: contains a tiny hole at the bottom that creates a vacuum effect and sucks in air.
- Plate: holds your product in place.
- Product: pulled to the surface like a suction when the pump is being used.
Our airless plastic jars have an inner double wall which is made of polypropylene (PP). This PP inner wall provides a moisture and chemical barrier. This will preserve your product longer and prevent any unwanted chemicals from getting into your product. Airless plastic jars with lids prevent product evaporation, maintain fragrance, and allow for 98% of the product to be used.
If an airless jar isn't what you are looking for, you may consider an acrylic double walled jar. These lightweight plastic jars with lids also have an inner chamber. This chamber is made of PP plastic that provides a moisture and chemical barrier which means your product will stay fresher, longer. Since the outer walls are made of acrylic, these plastic jars with lids are not only durable but also sleek and stylish. Double walled acrylic jars are the most ideal for thick creams and gels with beads or heavy texture.
Whether you choose an airless jar or an acrylic double-walled jar, both of these plastic jars with lids will offer durability, luxury, and longevity of your product. At Cosmetics Packaging Now, our goal is to make your life easier and your business run smoother.
