Powder Packaging - Plastic Jars and Containers for Powders - Different Color Jars Available

Posted by

Packaging for powder products may seem a bit tricky, but with some guidance and a few packaging accessories, you'll be on your way. Metal powders, make-up powders, food powders (powdered milk), nail powders, energy drink powders... or the addicting coffee powder  (a.k.a ground coffee)... With so many different powders out there, there are a few characteristics that remain the same for loose powders. 

Powders are very fine dry particles that can get turned into a creamy paste if mixed with water. Because powders are such fine particles, l
oose powders may flow and spread if the plastic jar or container gets tilted or shaken. They can sometimes be difficult to store and gather in place as they tend to easily make messes. Discs may help but it's important to complete product testing. Unfortunately, product testing has become an undervalued process to some product developers out there. The benefits of completing throughout testing of jars and packaging are too many for it to be a topic that doesn't get any attention today. Packaging development for products includes requesting samples and trying out the jars with your powder before ordering jars in bulk.  

Packaging comes in all different kinds of shapes. Start by deciding the type of look you want your product to have. Do you want a low profile cosmetic jar or are you trying to find a taller jar with a small mouth opening? Is clear styrene your thing? Maybe you even want to add a touch of color to that clear styrene plastic jar? If you're instead trying to find a sturdier plastic jar, then you might be looking for the polypro (polypropylene) jar. The more questions you answer related to packaging design, the closer you'll be towards finding a plastic jar for your powder product.

 - Make sure you keep your shelf-strategy in mind!
