Salutations!

I've been experimenting with recipes and I'm finally working on launching a beauty and body products line in my shop. I'm going to be offering body lotions, butters, scrubs, mineral makeup, lip glosses and sticks, etc. I'm having a hard time finding the packaging that I want for my scrubs and lotions.

At the moment I'm mostly hunting for 4-6 oz clear plastic tubs that I can apply my own labels to. Most of what google has lead me to thus far required large orders and I'm just looking for a case to start with- not 200 pieces. I'm trying to offer natural products at a budget price so I'm looking for something in the range of $1 per tub if I can find it.

Any suggestions of decent vendors?

(I apologize if there is a post with good packaging advice somewhere, I hunted but couldn't find the info I needed)

I did a quick google search for you and came up with a few sites that sell containers at a reasonable price for how many quantities you like, though I'm not sure if you are referring to these type of containers:

http://www.containerandpackaging.com/subtype.asp?itemtype=Plastic_Tubs


This one requires a minimum quantity but it's only around 25 jars a case so not that outrageous:

I hope that was of some help Cheesy

Try www.soapsandthings.com. She is verrry reasonable you can buy 1 or as many as you want - even waterproof labels. I've been using her for a while now & I am very pleased.

I thought I would let everyone know that I ended up getting some great supplies from http://wholesalesuppliesplus.com/- everything came really quickly and exactly as stated. You can get singles or buy in bulk like I ended up doing. Thanks for the tips!
