The Personal Care industry in the United States continues to grow at a staggering pace. As you walk through the isles of your local grocer or boutique beauty shop you will notice that the options for moisturizers are staggering. Two of those options are body butter and body lotion. Two very similar, but different products. The biggest difference between the two is the main ingredient. Body butter contains shea butter and others like coconut oil. Body lotion is usually a combination of water and oil. In this article, we will discuss body butter packaging ideas and what containers to use for homemade body butter products.

Safe Packaging for Body Butters

The first thing to consider when choosing packaging for body butter is whether the packaging you choose is safe for the product. You want to make sure you choose a container. The best packaging options will not affect the composition of your body butter product. Two great options are glass and stainless steel. Glass is non-porous and will be inert to any ingredient you include. Stainless steel works well for many recipes as well. HDPE and PET containers are generally safe options due to their low permeability and because they are resistant to breaking down.
