Personal Care

Cosmetics.jpgIntermediate bulk containers play an important role in the movement and storage of liquid cosmetics and personal care products. The personal care industry includes hair care products, creams, lotions, gels, serums, fragrances, sprays, dental care liquids, and many other OTC products.  Whether you are moving raw ingredients or shipping the finished product to a packing facility, stainless steel IBCs are the container of choice.

In the past, manufacturers in the personal care industry looked to drums for storing liquid product.  Nowadays, the top cosmetic manufacturers know that IBCs provide superior storage capability.  IBC totes store liquids more efficiently than drums, providing more storage capability per pallet space.  A 550-gallon IBC takes up the same amount of space as four drums (one pallet), but has the same capacity as ten drums! 

Unlike drums, IBCs are reusable and environmentally friendly.  Reusable totes reduce disposal costs, minimize the number of containers needed, and diminishes the clutter laying around the warehouse.  No more space wasted by used drums waiting to be disposed of.  These features result in lower cosmetic transportation and storage costs.
