We also have the 8ml Clear Plastic Lip Gloss Container which features a soft-ended applicator that screws onto the main container.

The caps come with dip tubes that can be trimmed down to your desired length. The cost of these bottles can go as low as 96p per unit.

Whilst not a traditional soap, shampoos and conditioners are popular cosmetic products that need cosmetic packaging as well! Our 400ml Oval Natural HDPE Shampoo Bottle is a fantastic option for your hair care range, as well as being suitable for baby lotions, shower gels and tanning lotions to name just a few. The bottle has a hinged snap on lid as it standard with shampoo bottles and can cost as little as 61p per unit!

The best bottles for beauty serums

Beauty serum bottles

The benefits of beauty serums

Cosmetic serum packagingAccording to the Cambridge English Dictionary, a beauty serum is ‘a substance that is designed to improve your hair or skin and make it less dry’. Or, to be more specific, beauty serums are lightweight, highly concentrated substances with active ingredients that are absorbed rapidly, penetrating deep layers of hair or skin to rejuvenate and protect it. Regardless of whether they live up to their claims, or how well they work, people use serums to make them look and feel young and beautiful.

If you already run your own business and sell cosmetics or hair care products, a serum is a great way to expand your range. You can provide your customers with an extra way of making their skin or hair more silky soft and youthful. Serums are ideal for using alongside every day moisturisers and they give that extra boost for people who need a little extra help with their dry, aging skin and hair. Once you’ve decided on the ingredients of your high quality serum, you’ll want some premium packaging to match. That’s where we come in.
