This is our answer to the conventional, plastic twist-up lip balm tube. It is the same volume and looks the most similar on the shelves. It perfectly fits labels that are 1.75" (45mm) tall and 2.5" (64mm) wide (available here).
This tube has an extra thick push-up bottom (as shown in photos) that makes it very easy to push up to dispense the lip balm or product inside. Even large fingers can push up the bottom because the diameter is 16mm wide (0.62"), significantly wider than our other small lip balm tubes. When fully pushed up, the user's finger only needs to be inserted halfway into the tube to dispense the last of the product inside.
Inside traditional plastic lip balm tubes, only half of the tube is filled with product! The bottom half of the tube is empty plastic necessary for the twist-up mechanism. This creates the illusion of MORE product, which creates MORE value for customers. Our paper alternative looks just as big on the shelves without the need to increase the price due to more product inside.
We recommend leaving around 1/4" of space in this tube when filled.
16mm / 0.64" - inner diameter
20mm / 0.78" - outer diameter
62.5mm / 2.45" - total outer height
32mm / 1-1/4" - total inner height
55mm / 2.17" - height of base with lid off (includes neck)
17mm / 0.65" - outer lid height
45mm / 1.77" - outer base height (from bottom of tube to lid line)
14.5mm / 0.58" - top of lid diameter (for sticker)
64mm / 2.5" - circumference
