Shaker Top Packaging for Fine Cosmetic Talc Powder

October 11th, 2011

Shaker Top PackagingManufacturers of cosmetics and personal care products have long relied on Custom Paper Tubes for their packaging needs.  Our years of experience and breadth of paper tube packaging offerings has made Custom Paper Tubes a preferred vendor to the cosmetics industry.

When Elizabeth Arden took over the Juicy Couture line from Liz Claiborne, they updated their talc shaker graphics. Custom Paper Tubes provides talc shakers in several sizes, with matching color coordinated tops and bottoms.Each canister includes a barrier liner to keep delicate fragrances from escaping.  A colorful, custom shaker top allows for repetitive opening and closing, without damage or degradation of the closure or the container.

One of the challenges presented by this application is the shaker assembly, which is specifically designed for talc and other fine powders.  Typical shaker tops designed for coarser materials such as salt and grated cheese have a tendency to leak when fine materials are contained, so care was taken to select a shaker top assembly suited to this specific  application during the design phase of this project.  Regardless of material type, Custom Paper Tubes can create shaker top packaging that will dispense your product with ease.

Fine powder (talc) shakers are available for canisters with inside diameters of:

  • 1-1/4″
  • 1-5/8″
  • 1-7/8″
