Packaging for cosmetic creams and
semi-solid household products
The jar and its various designs
Contract manufacturer Schild Labs designs jars to customer specifications and fills them with the customer’s product. The typical jar is cylindrical and has a screw lid. It is used as a sturdy container for cosmetics and household products. The screw lid allows the jar to be securely resealed after removing the desired amount of its contents. It is suitable for both solid and pasty materials. The contents of the jar can thus to be kept and used over a long period of time, depending on its shelf life. There are many different types of jar in different sizes and materials. They can be made of glass, plastic or aluminium, and their design ranges from practical through to elegant and stylish. Jars also come in a wide range of wall thicknesses, from thin walls to double-walled designs. Similarly, the range extends from simple, functional models to elaborate versions. We work with expert manufacturers to offer contract filling in jars that live up to our customers’ expectations.
Advantages and disadvantages of the jar
Jars are low-walled containers made of glass, plastic, aluminium or tin. They meet hygienic requirements for packaging of creams and pastes. For manufacturers of cosmetics or household products, they are ideal lightweight and sturdy containers. Choosing the right jar for the product significantly enhances the overall appearance. A well designed jar can also be decorative. Contract filling enables manufacturers to have their product filled into suitable containers.
For the end customer, cosmetic jars offer the advantage that the cream is easy to remove with a finger, spatula brush or cotton pad, and nothing is wasted. Small jars are convenient to carry in a handbag when you’re out and about. However, it’s almost impossible to stop germs getting into the jar when it is opened for use. For this reason, preservatives must be added to the product. The jar is not suitable for volatile components, and products that contain water can dry out.
Typical types of jar in contract filling
If you want to bring your products to market safely and attractively, you need the right packaging. We offer contract filling of products in the cosmetics and household sectors. As a contract manufacturer, we also take care of professional packaging of the jars for shipping. We fill jars with all kinds of creams, including face creams, skin creams and body creams. Care products such as hair treatments, lip balm, hand ointments and shaving soaps can also be filled into jars with a screw lid. Natural cosmetics are an important trend in the field of beauty care. Products such as coconut oil, tea tree oil and body butter can also be packaged in this type of container. The packaging is of particular importance when it comes to marketing a product. Decorative packaging plays an important role, especially for beauty products. The choice of jar, for example made of glass and with a high-quality design, adds value to the product. The packaging also offers the advantage of brand-specific designs with labels or printing. We also fill jars with numerous household products. Especially for cleaning products, the tin with screw lid is a very practical choice of packaging. Typical products are cleaning pastes, both special-purpose and universal. A sponge can also be included in the jar. Oven cleaners and cleaners for ceramic hobs, grills and stove windows are also available in jars. The cleaning ingredients are well preserved inside the container. Our jars are also ideal for care products such as polish, wax, leather care, enamel care or shoe polish.

They can be hermetically sealed.
