Home Compostable Cosmetics Packaging / Lip Balm Tubes and Cosmetic jars (Eco Tubes and Eco Jars)

We have the first eco-friendly and green home-compostable cosmetics packaging for lip balms and other oil-based cosmetics

Please contact me if you are interested in ordering the patented home-compostable lip balm tubes and home-compostable jars for cosmetics (The Eco Tube and Eco Jar).  These tubes and jars have been tested thoroughly to hold oil-based cosmetics and lip balms.  The current sizes of the tubes are 1.5-2.1 ounces, and the jars currently come in 4 ounce and 6 ounce sizes.  We are currently designing a 2oz capacity jar that is similar to this 4oz jar. It is expected to be available for sampling and sales by the end of the first quarter 2012.   I have attached pictures of the current product offerings.

These home-compostable tubes replaces the environmentally unfriendly current form factor of the majority of lip balms in the market.

About the home-compostable tubes:

1. 100% post consumer waste paper

2. Soy Ink available on larger orders

3. Organic adhesive and glaze

4. Biodegradable

5. Home compostable

6. Very durable!

can your tube handle a waterbased gel? what are the min orders? thanks, Bob Ray

Hi Robert:

I had actually not checked this page for a while. If anyone wants to contact me, I am best reached at the email provided above.  Thanks!  The Eco Tubes and Jars hold oil-based cosmetics, and not water-based cosmetics. Water will break down the patented paper packaging. 

As for minimums, there are no minimums on the Eco Jars, and for the Eco Tubes, the miminums are 2000 if you want printing on them, and there is no minimum if you want our green leafy generic tubes.  Please email me for more details.



Hi Ken,

I would like to know the price of the tubes--I want to order a trial size for a new lip balm- please send me details on how to order.

Thank you.

 Silvia De La Rosa
