Can I use
these containers for my water-based cream/lotion?
paperboard containers are not recommended for any products containing
water. Since the containers are not airtight, the water will slowly
evaporate, drying out the product. The containers are designed for
oil-based products and powders.
the variation in diameter/height for stock and custom tubes?
stock and custom tubes, please allow for up to +/- 1mm variation in diameter
and +/- 2mm variation in height in smaller tubes, and up to 5mm variation
in height for larger tubes.
the materials used eco-friendly and sustainable?
care to consider sustainability in every step of sourcing, production,
packaging and shipment. The tubes are made with FSC certified paper, and the outer paper of all of our brown kraft paper tubes are 100% recycled. The adhesive
used is rice glue, and the lining is soybean wax that is stable up
to 140°F or 60°C. All of our tubes are fully home compostable
unless they have an additional coating on the outside of the tube (these are
specified as "coated" in the product title). Tubes that have an
extra coating on the outside are industrially compostable, and have a thin
layer of PLA bioplastic made from plant starches from sugar cane, corn stalks,
etc. For custom orders, we only use vegetable inks. The containers
are food grade and comply with EU regulations for cosmetic container safety
standards. Finally, we ship using plastic free, recycled materials that
are recyclable and compostable.
