Types and uses of jars for cosmetics

One of the key issues in the production of household chemicals, pharmaceutical products or cosmetics is the method of their storage. Extremely strong competition in the cosmetics market increases the impact of the price and type of packaging on the final sales result.


Moreover, the packaging must be unique, eye-catching and evoke positive associations. Jars for cosmetics are undoubtedly one of these types of solutions that meet such criteria.

An important definition issue

Before we focus on cosmetic jars , its worth knowing the definition of a cosmetic. Cosmetic product in EU legislation means any substance or mixture intended to come into contact with the external parts of the human body or the teeth and mucosa of the oral cavity in order to cleanse them solely or mainly, by perfuming them, changing their appearance, protecting them, keeping them in good condition or correcting body odors.

Wide selection of cosmetic jars

After the introduction and description what cosmetics are, we can move to the characteristics of jars for cosmetics.

Depending on the needs they can be made of a wide range of materials, such as aluminum (AL), glass or synthetic materials - acrylonitrile styrene (AS), poly copolymer (PETG), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), carbamide (UREA). Whether we are dealing with plastic jars, glass jars or aluminum ones, they must have appropriate safety certificates.

Various jar sizes are also available, beginning from as small as 5 ml or 10 ml to 100 ml and 300 ml. For example, medium and large volumes like 50-300 ml are usually used for packing creams, gels, ointments, lotions, scrubs and masks. And the smallest and medium sizes like 5-50 ml are used for packing serums, cream samples and medical products, that the buyer can test in the store or take home.

When it comes to the choice of packaging colors, it is quite rich. The offer includes amber, black, brown, clear, gold, green, navy blue, silver and white. The jars are available with different surface textures
- glossy, matte, as well as with a frozen effect.

The most popular shapes of jars are rectangle, round and square.

Powerful packaging market

The global glass packaging market was estimated at USD 56 billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 73 billion by 2026. On the other hand the global plastic packaging market size was valued at USD 348 billion in 2020 and is expected to be worth USD 586 billion by 2030.

This illustrates the power of space to choose the best packaging solutions for cosmetic products.
