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.

New Year, New Ideas!

Copyright: <a href='https://www.123rf.com/profile_fabrikacrimea'>fabrikacrimea / 123RF Stock Photo</a>

As 2017 draws to a close, we’ve started to think about what you can do to gear up your business for the New Year. There are new packaging trends to consider, as well as the projected growth of your business, in order to continue to make your business a success in 2018. Check out a few of our ideas for packaging and trends to follow for the New Year and, if you have any tips yourself, just let us know in the comments!

Be Environmentally Friendly

As you are probably already aware of, there is a big push for disposable packaging to be fully recyclable in order to contribute towards to fight against climate change and pollution of our planet (Blue Planet 2 anybody?). Here at Ampulla, we have plenty of recyclable plastic packaging on offer, as well as glass. Our most recent additions to our collection are the Edge Cosmetic Jars, which are made from recyclable polypropylene plastic in a choice of three sizes (200ml, 350ml and 500ml) and two colours (black and white). They are ideal for packaging your range of cosmetics, such as face creams, moisturisers and hair styling wax, just to name a few examples.

As well as thinking hard about your choice of packaging, you need to think about how you get this message across to your customer, who may still simply throw the empty container into landfill, which defeats the purpose of your packaging entirely! The best way to make it clear is to place the information in an obvious place on your labelling, or even have suggestions on what your customers can do with the empty packaging once the product inside has been used up. This could simply include the proper disposal information, or tips on how to up-cycle the jars, bottles or tubs into something beautiful!

Get Stylish

Instead of opting for generic-shaped jars and bottles, why not go for something a little more stylish and that will stand out on the shelf in the New Year? We have plenty of great looking options that offer something a little different from the norm.

Our Swing Top Bottles are a rustic alternative to standard glass bottles, with a ceramic stopper that is attached with a metal clasp so you can never lose it! It’s ideal for storing milkshakes, juices and cordials, especially if these products are made by small, local businesses! Another old-fashioned glass products are our Le Parfait Jars, which also come with a clasped lid. They come in a massive variety of sizes, from 500ml up to 3 litres, with distinctive, orange rubber-lined lids that lock in your product’s freshness. They’re great for jams, pickles, flour, rice and so much more.

If you like the look of cardboard, but it isn’t suitable or practical to store your product in, then our Cardboard Effect Bottles are perfect for you! They are made from HDPE plastic, which is lightweight, durable and can be recycled. They’d be perfect for packaging liquid-like products that have been produced ethically, as the cardboard texture puts across this message in a stylish way. Finally, for all the jam makers out there, we have our Hexagonal Glass Jars. They have distinctive ridged edges that give you a firm grip in hand, as well as looking fantastic!

Think Outside Of The Box!

If the options above aren’t wacky enough for your liking, no fear! These items ought to get you excited…

Behold our 700ml Eagle Decanter! There’s no better way to make a statement than to package your spirits and liqueurs in this unique glass bottle, and it would look fantastic in your customers’ drinks cabinets. The head of the majestic eagle acts as a glass lid, complete with a cork stopper enclosed within. Alternatively, you can serve up cocktails of your choice in our 500ml Quattro Stag Jars, which come with stylish, screw on, gold lids and are embossed with the brand trademark. It also features a useful glass handle so that you can drink from it as easily as you would with a mug!

Finally, our most novelty items are our Animal-Shaped Plastic Lunch Pots. They come in a choice of animals, including Elephants and Tortoises, and would make the perfect lunch pack for kids to take to school! They would also be fantastic for packaging children’s meals in cafes and supermarkets.
