Packaging Tip

Inner Dome Fitments

Inner Dome Fitments

For an additional layer of protection when packaging deodorant products, choose natural polypropylene plastic inner dome fitments. Using deodorant tube fitments helps make sure product does not leak or shift during transportation. These natural plastic fitments can also be used to offer consumers peace of mind that the product has not been used previously. The fitment sits on top of the deodorant, under the plastic cap, and each is embossed with instructions stating: "Twist Up Product To Remove Dome." After twisting up the product, the top tabs can be pulled to remove the fitment before initial use. These fitments are compatible with our .75, 1.76, 2.12, and 2.65 oz deodorant tubes.
