Why Choose Eco Friendly Cosmetic Packaging?

eco friendly cosmetic packaging

Sustainability is a pretty big deal right now. Google searches hit peak popularity in February 2020, and with global warming an ever-increasing threat, it’s never been more important to consider the environmental impact of our day-to-day choices. That’s why more and more beauty brands are opting for eco friendly cosmetic packaging to store, sell and supply their products.

But it’s not just important for the environment. As consumers, influencers and make-up gurus become more eco-aware, eco friendly cosmetic packaging is increasingly becoming a selling point.

What eco friendly packaging choices are available for beauty brands?

Well, it depends on your product, but there are loads of options to choose from. At Ampulla, we’re always looking to expand our range to offer you the best eco friendly packaging at affordable prices. We’ve listed some of our bestselling choices below.

Post Consumer Recycled Bottles

PCR bottles give you all the benefits of plastic – they’re shatterproof, lightweight and durable – but with an eco-friendly twist. As the name suggests, these bottles are made of plastic that have been recycled – so making use of these strong, versatile bottles can significantly reduce your use of virgin plastics.

The lightweight nature of these bottles also lowers your carbon footprint when you’re dispatching your goods. Deliver more orders over fewer journeys – and save money on your P&P, too!

We offer a chemical-resistant HDPE option (in 30ml – 1 litre capacities) or a clear PET option, so you can pick the bottle that’s best for your needs.

Glass Cosmetic Jars

For classic eco friendly cosmetic packaging, glass is second to none. Made from abundant natural raw materials such as sand, it doesn’t use up precious natural resources. It’s also already widely recycled, and because glass waste melts at a lower temperature than raw materials, recycling glass can also help save energy.

But it’s not just an eco-friendly choice. Glass offers a premium look for your cosmetics and makeup, so it’s a great way to draw your customers to your products. It’s also nonreactive with many substances, so it’s ideal for preserving your goods.

At Ampulla, you can buy glass cosmetic packaging in a variety of colours and sizes. Take a look at our range below.

Aluminium Jars

Aluminium is one of the most sustainable recyclable materials available. In fact, almost three quarters of all the aluminium ever produced is still in use today. Because of this, it’s a great option for cosmetic brands looking to build their eco credentials.

The shiny silver jar body is fab for luxury cosmetics, and it’s easy to personalise by adding a label to the side of the jar. The opaque nature of aluminium also prevents reaction of your product with light or other external factors.

Our aluminium jars come with matching lined lids for maximum product protection. They’re available in sizes up to 150ml!

Quality Cosmetic Packaging

Launching a new cosmetics brand and looking for affordable, yet quality cosmetic packaging? Look no further! Here at Ampulla, we have so many great options for all your different types of products, including lotions, balms and soaps. We offer very competitive prices on our cosmetic packaging, with the price per unit falling when you order more units. Let us talk you through a few of our recommended products.

Lip Balms

Whether it’s a roller, push up or applicator you’re looking for, we’ve got a variety of options for your lip balm range. One of our favourites is the 10ml Clear Glass Roll-On Container which is ideal for lip gloss and premium lip balms. The roll cap simply screws on and off, making the glass container easy to fill and dispense, and they can be yours for as little as 55p each!

The 4.3gm White Lip Balm Tube is typical of the branded lip balms you see on the shelves of pharmacies and supermarkets, using the push up mechanism to deliver the stick of balm upwards until it runs out. Each tube comes complete with the plastic cap closure and prices can go as low as just 17p per unit!

We also have the 8ml Clear Plastic Lip Gloss Container which features a soft-ended applicator that screws onto the main container. Although it is designed to be used for lip gloss, this container would also be suitable for eye shadows and some other cosmetic products. From as little as 77p per unit!

Moisturisers

Our tubs are available in glass, plastic and aluminium versions, which helps you place your product in the brand value hierarchy. Our 30ml Clear Glass Ointment Jar is one of our high quality glass jars, featuring a black screw cap which has a lining to preserve the freshness of your cosmetic product and prevent it leaking out. They cost as little as 38p per jar when you buy in bulk.

 

The 75ml Aluminium Jar is a great little tub that is ideal for both face creams and body lotions alike. It comes with a matching screw on lid which is perfect for sticking your branding to and is visually appealing. As well as being used for moisturisers and lotions, this jar could also be used for wax and polishes! Prices are as little as 58p per jar.

If it’s a plastic jar you’re looking for, the 6ml Clear Plastic Jar is another great option. It’s a small tub that is well suited for sending out product samples or even for lip balm moisturisers. This jar is available for as little as 12p per unit.

Creams & Serums

Airless dispenser bottles are the ideal choice for creams and serums where it is important that air bubbles do not form in your product. Due to the airless technology, these bottles also reduce product contamination and takes away the need to use preservatives – great for cosmetics made using all-natural ingredients. We currently have 9 models of airless dispensers in stock, with sizes ranging from 30ml to 150ml.

Our smallest bottle is the 30ml Airless Dispenser Bottle which has a clear body with a polished silver top, giving your brand a sleek, luxury look. These bottle can be yours for as little as £1.55 each.

Our 50ml Airless Frosted Bottle is slightly larger and features a frosted plastic body that will make your products stand out from other brands. The screw top cap makes the bottle easy to fill and prices go as low as £1.90 per bottle.

Our 100ml Airless Dispenser White Bottle has a different design to the other two bottles featured above, with an opaque white body that is more wide-set than it’s counterparts. It has a glossy finish that would look great when paired with your branded labels and stickers of any colour! Prices are as low as £1.14.

Soap Dispensers

Our soap dispensers come in all shapes and sizes so you can find your perfect bottle whether your brand is basic or luxury. One of our standard shaped bottles is our 250ml Clear PET Plastic Oval Bottle, which comes with a black lotion pump cap that has the ability to lock and prevent spillages. 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!

For a traditional soap dispenser bottle, look no further than the 500ml Clear PET Hand Wash Bottle. It has a classic rounded shape and comes complete with a silver lotion pump for easy dispensation. Prices for this bottle go as low as 74p per unit when you buy in bulk.

One of our favourite and most unique-looking soap dispenser bottle and piece of cosmetic packaging is the 500ml Natural Square HDPE Bottle which is a striking and model addition to your cosmetic range. The 4 straight sides of the bottle make it very easy for you to attach your branded labels and the locking feature of its lotion pump cap is perfect for preventing accidental spillages and gives you peace of mind during transportation!
