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!

As sustainability and climate change come increasingly into focus, eco friendly cosmetic packaging is going to be vital so beauty brands can meet consumers’ needs. For more eco friendly cosmetic bottles and jars, shop the range at Ampulla.

Come To The Dark Side… We Have Black Plastic Bottles!

For a sleek, sophisticated cosmetic product, look no further than our Black Plastic Bottles – they’re out of this world! They are made from PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic, which is fully recyclable, lightweight and robust, making them ideal for packaging lotions, serums, sprays and much more. Best of all, they are compatible with a wide variety of different caps, including screw caps, atomisers, disc tops, flip tops, trigger sprays and lotion pumps, which gives you the option of many types of dispensation. Whether you’re packaging a hair spray that needs to be sprayed in a fine mist, or a moisturiser that needs to be squeezed out, we’ve got the right bottle and cap for you.

Suitable For Many Different Industries

These black plastic bottles come in a variety of sizes ranging from 50ml up to an astronomical 1 litre, making the range suitable for storing small amounts of luxury cosmetics and large amounts of industrial scale cleaning products alike. The possibilities go on and on, from car care and cleaning products, to hair products and toiletries.

Minimalist Style

Black is a colour of elegance, mystery and sophistication, and these glossy black bottles simply ooze these characteristics. They look inconspicuous in home bathrooms as well as in luxury hotel rooms! The dark side is much more fun…

Recyclable Material

PET plastic is fully recyclable, however many councils cannot currently collect black PET plastic packaging, as the dark pigment in the material makes it difficult for automatic sorting machines to recognise it and it ends up going to landfill. We recommend finding a specialist black PET plastic recycling company to refer your customers to when they have finished with any product that you have packaged in the bottles, or you could upcycle instead of recycle. What is upcycling? It’s taking a used object and giving it a new lease of life – for instance, you could make your empty bottles into a DIY bird feeder, a vase or use them in arts and crafts activities with the kids!

Still Not Convinced?

If you don’t want to take our word for it, then just let our customers’ photos do the talking for the high quality of our Black Plastic Bottles! Skinderella uses these bottles for their range of facial beauty products made for GlossGods, with the simple white labelling making this brand striking and oozing a luxury feel.
