DIY Skin Care Packaging

April 2021

DIY Skin Care Packaging Skin care is one of the leading subsets of the personal care industry and SKS Bottle & Packaging offers a wide range of glass and plastic containers to fulfill your skin care packaging needs. Lotion pumps, foaming pumps, and disc top caps are just a few of the useful dispensing caps we have paired with our large variety of stocked plastic and glass bottles. We also carry a large selection of skin care jars for housing products like balms, salves, creams, and much more. Check out below for a variety of DIY skin care recipes that can be conveniently packaged in SKS containers.

Store this DIY skin care recipe in our 2 oz amber PET boston round bottles with smooth black fine mist sprayers.

These amber PET boston round bottles with smooth black fine mist sprayers are available in both a 2 oz and 8 oz size.

The fine mist sprayers are made of polypropylene and are topped with a protective clear styrene hood. These plastic bottles could be a great packaging option for a variety of products that need to be applied by misting.

The PE lined plastic caps provide an airtight, wedge-type seal that not only seals across the top of the container, but also seals along the inside diameter. This PE liner, paired with phenolic plastic caps, is commonly used for liquid products and should be tested first to make sure leaking does not occur. Try using these glass vials for products like bath salts, essential oils, perfume, and more.

Glass jars are impermeable and offer a good choice for packaging a number of other bath and body care products, including body butter and sugar scrub.

Packaging Tip

Snap Top Caps

Snap Top Caps

Try using snap top caps to dispense products in smaller doses. A snap top cap is held in place through the use of beads or undercuts, rather than traditional threading. Snap caps are a great addition to any product line as they have a hinged cover that snaps closed securely over an orifice to reduce the possibility of leakage. To dispense product, flip the hinged cap up and gently squeeze the plastic container. The plastic cap is then re-sealed by simply pressing the hinged top back onto the beaded finish until it snaps in place. These snap top caps can also be paired with a pressure sensitive liner to preserve product freshness. Choose snap top caps for products like liquid cosmetics, honey, shampoo, and more!
