Why are jars so attractive to consumers?
Cosmetic jars are very practical, and the formulas contained in them are efficient. They can hold face cream, body lotion, and even cream deodorant. In addition, they look elegant on a shelf in the bathroom, which for many people is an important criterion when choosing cosmetics.
Furthermore, they can come in a variety of sizes - from small, travel-sized formats to large jars, which can contain hundreds of millilitres of cosmetics. Jars need to come with a classic cap. They cant be fitted with a dropper, atomizer, or pump. Even if they are big enough to fit the tube, its not a popular option.
As for the caps, they can be metal, gold-plated or classic. Plastic caps are also common. The choice is usually a matter of the individual preference of the manufacturer. More elegant, luxury cosmetics are often equipped with golden caps, but its not an obligation.
