This week I want to talk to you about our packaging. Yes, packaging! I want to explain why I chose to use bottles and tubes over jars. It makes a difference! So many products come in jars and I can understand why in one way; it’s easy and convenient to open a jar top, remove the product and apply it. Believe me, that would make my life a bit easier, too. :-)
With jars, you don’t have to deal with pumps and flips caps and orifice sizes, right? Super easy! But here’s the thing and maybe it’s an aesthetician thing, but many of us learned early in our career to only work with products that have packaging where you don’t actually touch the product. Do you know why that is? GERMS! Because every time you dip your finger into a jar to remove product you are introducing the microbes on your fingers to the said product. And these microbes can potentially contaminate your skin care product. Don’t even get me started on jars for diaper balm or ointment. Yuck!
Being a line dedicated to safe and natural ingredients, and understanding that natural preservatives are more delicate and not as robust to fight off microbes as easily as their synthetic counterparts, we decided a “no jar” policy is the safest way to protect the integrity and safety of our products. And that’s why we use only bottles and tubes for all of our products!
