Bigger Lip Balm Tubes

So, if the Big Lip Balm Tubes aren't big enough, what should you do? Go Bigger, of course! The Bigger Lip Balm Tubes hold 0.5! These are super big (think glue stick BIG) and are great for balms, salves and other products that you need a greater quantity.

These tubes are about 3.75 inches tall and 3/4 inches in diameter. These tubes also have the mechanism at the bottom like our regular lip balm tubes (0.15 ounce size). The tubes are white and only sold as a set of the tube and cap. We don't sell these as just the tubes or just the caps, only as a set.

A single jar of Lip Solutions will fill about 20 of these Bigger Lip Balm Tubes.

Deodorant Tubes, Mini Sized

Whoops! This item is currently limited to stock on hand. We are working on this and hope this will return to the catalog soon.

We had a special request to offer these mini-sized deodorant tubes. It wasn't until I put one of our Lip Solutions mixtures in this tube and was able to use it that I fell in love! It is small, portable, suitable for a larger pocket (not skinny jeans pockets) and was super nice for using on a scar. My doctor advised applying a thick lotion or salve like material to the scar and rubbing the skin. He explained that scar tissue does not stretch and give like undamaged skin so applying gentle pressure to make the scar work allows for the skin to thin and become more flexible. Big, thick scars are terribly uncomfortable when the skin just doesn't move and bend like the rest of the skin on the body.

You might try a deodorant, a lip balm, a lotion bar or other type of product in these tubes. If you are a deodorant maker send in a written description and story so we can make you a guest blogger for the day.

You know, it is all about the details so let me give you some numbers:
Height: 2.38 inches
Width (longest): 1.47 inches
Width (narrowest): 0.69 inches
Circumference of Label Area: 3.75 inches
Label Height: max of 1.63 inches
Capacity: 0.4 ounces*
Color: White
Sold only in Sets - a tube and cap is a set.

*Please note that your mixture may have a specific gravity or density than our Lip Solutions so this weight may be very different for you. Test to determine what this tube holds for your mixture.



Lip Balm Filling Tray

OK, the deadline draws near and you still have to make the lip balm! Not to worry, this tray will rescue your behind from the proverbial hot spot. And don't just take our word on these trays. In the first 2 weeks we had 60 trays go to good homes. These trays helped their owners in major lip balm production! We hear great comments about these trays daily.

We were so pleased to get the regular lip balm tray AND a tray for the slim stick tubes! Can you believe it?! If you would like a tutorial, then please go to Plastic Tom's Tutorial for assistance. Our photographer was in today taking pictures. I couldn't believe how fast we were able to make 50 tubes. Simple. Clean. And dishwasher safe.

Don't confuse these trays with those which are milled, these professional trays are injection molded of HDPE. A super class act!

In photo order from top to bottom:
Order the Regular Tray for bottom twist. To see our Regular Size Tubes click here.
Order the Oval Lip Balm Tube tray for oval tubes. To see our 0.15 oz Oval Tubes click here.
Order the Slim Stick Tray for the Slim Stick tubes. To see our Slim Stick Tubes click here.

We have a couple of hints for users.
1) Pour the lip balm mixture as cool as possible. The tubes can become mis-shapen if the lip balm mix is super hot. Use our quick test to determine if your lip mixture is ready: stir the mixture with a pipette, hold the pipette horizontal after stirring, if the pipette bends downward then the mixture is WAY too hot. If the pipette holds it's rigid form and the mixture is still clear then the mixture is at perfect pouring temperature.
2) Load the tray with tubes just before filling. Long term storage of tubes held in the tray can cause temporary distortion of the tubes. To return tubes to their original shape, remove them from the tray and allow them to sit without their caps for a few days.
3) Allow the filled tubes to fully cool before removing from the tray. This may take a hour depending on the temperatures of the lip balm mixture and the room where you are working. Then, when the tubes are cool, give the tube a twist just before pulling straight out. The lip balm mixture at the top of the tube (the glorious crown!) can be damaged if the lip balm is too soft when removed from the tray. Patience is certainly an asset in this case.

ATTENTION! Before you use this tray please look VERY closely at the tutorial. Specifically look at the picture that shows the first pour into the tray. There are three tubes that have been filled and the fourth tube is being filled in the photo. We want you to notice the cooled lip balm mixture around the top of the Pyrex container. Please stir your lip balm mixture until it develops a haze just like this photo. If you pour while the lip balm is still too hot then the tubes can be temporarily warped. When the warping happens the caps may not fit tightly. If you will cool the lip balm mixture until a haze develops the chances of warping the tubes is greatly decreased.

What happens if you have poured too hot? Well, we suggest placing the cap on the tube then fitting a shrink band over the tube and heat shrinking the band. This short period of heating will relax the plastic tube and allow it to go back to the original size.

UPDATE! We now have the tray for the oval lip balm tubes!
