Bath Salt Tubes, Jars & Tins
There is nothing quite like a tranquil and relaxing day at the spa. Indulge in a private spa experience in the comfort of your own home with an uplifting bath salt soak. Combining the therapeutic benefits of essential oils with a warm, steamy bath can transform your routine day into an extraordinary one!
Whether you are an established manufacturer of body care products or a hobbyist who enjoys making luxurious gifts for friends, SKS has many packaging options that may be perfect for your bath salts. This month at SKS we have introduced several new styles of plastic PET jars and bottles, PET flex tubes, and metal bath salt tins.
Clear PET is a great option for your bath salt packaging. It is lightweight, has glass-like clarity, and will not shatter or break if dropped in the tub. PET flex tubes make it easy to dispense and display your bath salts. We offer an eclectic selection of PET bath salt tubes to suit your needs.
Our round PET flex tubes are offered with hang tabs or silver metal screw caps and come in a height of 4” or 6”. The natural hang tabs make it easy to bundle several tubes together with a fancy ribbon or to tie on personalized labels. Packaging your bath salts in our flex tubes with silver screw caps gives your product line a distinguished, high-end appeal.
Do you want to give your product line an elegant finish? Our oval bath salt tubes each have two sides that can be easily labeled. If you prefer to let the colors and textures of your bath salts sell themselves, these PET tubes are an ideal way to display your product. SKS currently offers two styles of 4” and 6” oval tubes. The smaller oval flex tubes come with snug fitting end plugs for a unique, streamlined look. The 205 ml and 320 ml flex bath salt tubes include convenient natural pull-tab plug caps, making them easy to open.
For a more contemporary look, try our rectangular bath salt tubes with natural plugs. These PET bath salt tubes may be the perfect container for your gift baskets or variety packs. The 4” tubes are small enough to be used as single-use samples.
If you are looking for a larger PET bath salt container, try one of SKS’s new jars or bottles. Our PET jars come in a variety of sizes and have a diverse assortment of closures to fit your needs.
A unique jar shape helps distinguish your product from the competition. Our new Tuscany jar can certainly set your bath salt line apart from those packaged in straight-sided containers. The Tuscany jar is offered in clear or cobalt blue and has a variety of closure options. The distinctive shape and wide opening make this container a great option for packaging your bath salt. Our Tuscany jars may be the perfect containers for your sugar or salt scrubs. You can combine your bath salts with carrier oil such as olive, grape seed, or jojoba to create a luxurious salt scrub. Scoop a small amount of the mixture from your jar and gently massage into skin in a circular motion. Salt scrubs help to rejuvenate and stimulate the skin by exfoliating dead cells and increasing circulation. Check out the Bodywork Online forum for free recipes and ideas!
Our square firenze jars are offered in clear or cobalt blue in 4 oz, 8 oz, and 16 oz sizes. If you would like to give your product line more pizzazz, you can try packaging your bath salt in a clear firenze jar and adding herbs or dried flowers. These accents will intensify the fragrance notes of your bath salt while looking elegant on a bathroom shelf.
The clear PET French square bottle is another great container that may be used to package your bath salts. It is offered in a 4 oz or 8 oz size and has several closure options. The French square has the clarity and elegance of glass with the durability of PET plastic. The wide mouth of the bottle makes it easy to fill the container and dispense your bath salts. Embellish the French square’s four easy-to-label faces or leave the bottle undecorated to display the natural beauty of your bath salt.
SKS’s wide selection of tins may be also used for bath salts. This month, we are featuring our square clear top tin, our screw top, and the deep-dish tins. Our square tin comes with a clear top cover that allows the colors and textures of your bath salt to show through. These 4 oz and 8 oz tins are perfect for gift giving. You can create a personalized spa gift basket by combining other body care products with several tins of custom-made bath salts.
Our extensive selection of deep-dish slipcover tins range in size from 1 oz to 16 oz. For a more opulent look, the 2 oz, 4 oz, and 6 oz tins are also available in gold. The embossed slipcover and brushed metal of these tins look great with or without decoration!
If product spillage is a concern, Screw top tins may be just what you’re looking for! SKS carries three convenient sizes of the twist top tins. The 1/2 oz, 2 oz and 8 oz sizes are available to add to an existing line or start a new line of bathsalt products. The convenient twist top reduces the possibility of spillage if the container is dropped or turned over. For added protection, try packaging your bath salts in a decorative plastic bag tied with an elegant ribbon before placing it in the tin.
Our bath salt containers are offered in a variety of shapes and sizes with several different closure options. Should you have any questions about our products or wish to request a sample, feel free to e-mail us. As always, we suggest that you test your product and container for compatibility.
Choosing the Right
Container for You!
While packaging compatibility is always suggested, when packaging items that may have complex formulas, chemicals or oils, it is especially important to test the product and container to make sure they are well-suited for one another. Various liners are often suggested depending on your product type and usage. Many times it is advised to use a liner with certain products to maintain tamper evidence, preserve product freshness or to prevent leakage. Induction lined caps and PS-22 lined caps are common for such requirements.
