How do I choose the correct size of cosmetic jars for my application?

How do I choose the correct size of cosmetic jars for my application?

Many people are turning their skills into DIY cosmetics or skincare products during this challenging time. As they begin their research on the packaging to house their incredible creations, they will first realize that there are so many choices of containers out there in the very confusing market! We understand it's challenging looking at all of the selections of beauty containers and having no idea which one to purchase. Let's look at them and break them down into something less complex.

When you visit the store and look at a jar of 1 oz. face powder, the packaging shows Net. Wt. refers to the net weight of the content in the jar, which is 1 oz., not the specification of the jar as 1 oz. jar.

What do you think about things like face powder and eye shadow pigments? Since they are all powder substances, they should be the same weight vs. volume, right? No. Depending on how fine the powder is milled and the ingredients within the powder product, the same powder weight can still yield a different requirement of beauty container size.

Here are some useful references.

3 Gram Cosmetic Jar

• about the size of a nickel, just a bit bigger.

• hold up to 1 gram or 0.5 tsp of powder product.

    5 Gram Cosmetic Jar

• about the size of a quarter, just a bit smaller.

• hold up 1.5 grams or 1.5 tsp of powder product.

   10 Gram Cosmetic Jar

• about the size of a half-dollar, just a bit smaller.

• hold up to 3 grams or 2.5 tsp of powder product.

   20 Gram Cosmetic Jar

• about the size of a silver dollar.

• hold up to 5 grams or 4 tsp of powder product.

   30 Gram Cosmetic Jar

• diameter is the same as the 20 gram jar but taller.

• hold up to 8 grams or 7 tsp of powder product.

  50 Gram Cosmetic Jar

    • a little larger than a silver dollar.

    • hold about 2.5 oz. or 5 tbs of powder product.

The above is for reference only, so you have some idea of where to start. To finalize your selections, you will need to fill the cosmetic jar with your product to see which fits the best. Also, using a cosmetic jar sifter is a must for powder products, so upon opening the jar or when you dip your makeup brush into the product, the powder does not fly all over the place. Keep in mind that the above reference is for jars without the sifters in place. If you use sifters in your jars, there will be much less product.

If you are new to the cosmetic jar industry and want to start your own DIY business, the best way is to purchase a few jars and perform some tests to see what works the best. Also, it's important to thoroughly test your product for compatibility and fitness to the cosmetic packaging prior to production to ensure success.
