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.

Customer Success Stories – You Share Your Photos!

We absolutely love seeing all the creative and wonderful things that happen to our jars and bottles after they leave our warehouse, as looking at row after row of empty bottles each day does lose its appeal. So last week, we asked our lovely customers to send in some photos of their finished products so we could admire and show them off for you and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response! We apologise that we have not been able to feature all the photos we have been sent, but here is a wide selection of our favourite customer success stories!

Imagination Station

Who knew you could turn a simple plastic jar into something so beautiful? Well the brains behind Imagination Station have done just that. They’ve used our 200ml Clear PET Plastic Jars to create these stunning works of art that are actually holding slime kits within! We don’t even know where to start with the sheer amount of work and skill it would take to make just one of these pots, so we take our hats off to you. Definitely one of the most unusual customer photos we’ve ever been sent!

Thanks to Sarah Bleasdale for sending these photos in.

Kamila Aubre Botanical Perfume

From the visual exuberance to understated style; Kamila Aubre Botanical Perfume uses our 15ml Ace Glass Fragrance Bottles to bottle parfum extracts, which are traditionally made in small splash bottles. We think the simple, yet beautiful labels that these bottles are branded with add to the luxurious look of the finished product.

Thanks to Kamila Aubre for sending these photos in.

Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy

Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy

This birchgrove honey all the from Finland is packaged in our Glass Verrine Jars and finished off with eye-catching labels that perfectly let you know exactly what the product is (even if you don’t speak Finnish)! Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy is a relatively new company founded in 2017 and we think that they are doing a fantastic job with branding so far!

Thanks to Mehiläistarhaaja Humalajoki for sending these photos in.

That Soap

The rustic labels that That Soap uses to brand their ranges of beauty products are absolutely ideal for the type of products that they sell. They reflect the artisan, homemade products within whilst also looking professional and fit for the shelves of mass retailers. That Soap have used our Glass Ointment Jars and Amber Glass Dropper Bottles with pipettes to package their range of fantastic products in which are made all the way down in the South of France, for which we are very grateful!

Thanks to Julie Wackrill for sending these photos in.

Lilac And Thyme

Our Clear PET Plastic Jars are have also been used by Lilac And Thyme to package face masks, hand creams and foot rubs, with the clear plastic showing off the tempting product within and the aluminium lids finishing the look with style!

No Frills Cosmetics

No Frills Cosmetics manufacture moisturiser and beauty serum using our Airless Dispenser Bottles as packaging, which are great for products made from all natural ingredients as product contamination is reduced, getting rid of the need to use preservatives. No Frills Cosmetics’ products are completely natural and designed for sensitive skin and not tested on animals. But the best thing about these cosmetics? A portion of the sales of each product is donated to the founder’s cancer support group and other nominated cancer charities! What a truly fantastic and heartwarming reason for starting up a business.

Thanks to Ann Mason for sending in these photos.

Pomme d’Or Gift Ideas

chill pill bath bombs

Now we don’t like to pick favourites, but these bath bombs from Pomme d’Or Gift Ideas might just take the top spot in our eyes… They’ve used our 1 Litre Round Clear PET Jar & 110mm White Screw Lid for this ingenious novelty product: Chill Pills Bath Bombs. What a great gift for friends and family who need a laugh! The clever labels are actually super simple in design, yet manage to jazz up the plain, clear jar to a professional standard – no wonder it’s their best seller. Top job guys!

Thanks to Anne-Marie Fowler for sending these photos in.

Velouté Body & Face Cream

These gorgeous face and body creams from Velouté Body Cream is packaged in our Black Arese Jars to give it that luxury look that it oozes. The black and gold colouring together elevates this product to the top end of the market, with customers also reporting that the shive within the lid of the jar is great for keeping the cream fresher longer!

Thanks to Carolyn Simpson for sending these photos in.

Damask Skincare

Damask Skincare‘s Hair Growth Oil is packaged neatly in our 50ml Glass Flask Bottle, which we think gives it a luxurious look and feel for the customers. It’s the perfect choice for this miracle oil!

Big Green Tree Natural Skincare

These hand and body washes wouldn’t look out of place on the shelves of The Body Shop or Boots, but they are in fact made by Big Green Tree Natural Skincare who are based on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire! Using our 150ml and 250ml Square PET Bottles and lotion pumps, they have created this sleek, stylish range of skincare products to keep Britons moisturised. If the names are anything to go by, we bet these products smell amazing…

Thanks to Helen Frear for sending these photos in.

Ma’s Bars

Ma’s Bars make sure to use locally sourced ingredients in their handmade ranges of beauty products, making them a great advocate for small business in Greater Manchester, where they are based. That’s why we’re happy that they have also chosen a local packaging supplier with Ampulla Packaging, as we too are from the area! These products have been packaged using our Clear PET Boston Bottles and lotion pumps.

Thanks to Helen Robinson for sending these photos in.

The Pamper Box

The Pamper Box offers bath and body goodies that are handmade fresh to order via their Facebook page, using a number of different items from our packaging ranges. For their jelly soaps they use our 120ml Clear Round Plastic Food Pots, the shower whips are packaged in our 150ml Clear Wide Neck PET Plastic Jars and finally, the foaming salts are bottled in our 250ml Clear Plastic Juice Bottles!

Thanks to Laura Burton for sending these photos in.

Birch Lea Soaperie

Nothing says rustic like the branding and labels that Birch Lea Soaperie have used on their fantastic sugar scrubs and body butters! Instead of simply sticking an adhesive label on, they’ve gone the extra mile and used string to tie their labels around the 200ml Clear Wide Neck PET Plastic Jars, which perfectly suits the handmade nature of the products. We love it and I’m sure their customers do too!

Thanks to Leanne Seymour for sending these photos in.

The Little Blue Hen Soap Crafting Company

These artisan soaps from The Little Blue Hen Soap Crafting Company is a vegan business, meaning that their soaps do not contain any animal products and are not tested on animals. They’ve even gone plastic free in order to reduce their impact on the environment! The soaps pictured above are packaged in our Glass Ointment Jars and Glass Simplicity Bottles.

Thanks to Michelle for sending these photos in.

Dandy Candies

The retro sweets that Dandy Candy sell offer their customers a nostalgic look back at their own childhoods! We absolutely love the old-school branding of the jars and the clever lollipop logo, and they even give customers to option to add a personalised message if they are sending sweets as a gift. Customers apparently love the look of the shine of the jar and the foil on the labels, which is very eye catching. Get the look yourself with our range of Plastic Sweet Jars!

Thanks to Sammie Key for sending in these photos.

Rainflower

Rainflower offers a wide range of products, including soaps, candles, hair care products and even gardening gifts! For their range of hand creams, Rainflower use our 50ml and 100ml PET Plastic Jars paired with aluminium lids, which are finished off with a lovely floral label on the lid.

Thanks to Sandra Robertson for sending these photos in.

Singleton Skincare

These beautiful cosmetics and candles are from Singleton Skincare, a producer of home and beauty items. We love the simple, yet distinctive, logo that is embossed across the whole range of products, which when combined with the mellow pastel colours of the labels, makes for a very attractive brand! Singleton Skincare has used our Aluminium Jars, Glass Votives and Plastic Lip Balm Tubes to package the products seen above.

Thanks to Sarah Singleton for sending these photos in.

K Tang

 

Last, but certainly not least, we have London-based K Tang; which is packaged in our 180ml Clear Plastic Squeezer Bottles. K Tang is a ketchup made using kimchi, a traditional Korean pickled vegetable side dish, which gives it a distinctive tang that is perfect for burgers, chips and avocado (apparently)! We think the design of the logo fits K Tang’s young, alternative target market down to a tee!

Thanks to Stephan Fowler for sending these photos in.
