Did we miss anything? Probably, but that’s the nature of a jar container. You can use it for hundreds of applications and storage solutions. Choosing a jar container can be fun, especially if you have several options to choose.

Jar options can seem a little overwhelming at first glimpse. With this in mind, we decided to compile an introductory jar guide.

Double Wall Jar

Double-wall jars have an outer and inner layer. The contents are put into the inner layer while the outer layer protects the product inside. Double-wall jars can also help with product temperature, hygiene and provide an extra layer of protection.

Double Wall Jar

Single Wall Jar

The single wall jar is very popular in many market sectors. These jars are easier to manufacture and have a lower price point. In fact, these jars are so popular that you only have to walk into your nearest supermarket to find shelves packed with brands using these jars. The single wall jar is also the easiest to recycle. You will also find jars in these shapes;

  • Square Plastic Jars
  • Oval Plastic Jars
  • Plastic PET Jars – (round)
  • Triangular Jars
  • Bespoke designed Jars.

Single Wall Jar

Acrylic Jars

The luxury acrylic option is the most expensive jar option to manufacture. They are heavy, strong and can be produced to look very stylish. Many top brands will use these jars to emphasise the quality of the product. Acrylic jars are normally used with matching lotion bottles, enabling product ranges to branch out into body lotions, creams or serums.

Premium Jars

Premium jars can fall into the acrylic, single or double wall categories. Premium defines the quality of the jar through the manufacturing process. This can encompass the weight, thickness, design and material used. A premium jar will also come complete with a shive to keep the contents fresh.

Plastic Twsit Seal & Lever Jars

Plastic twist lock jars are cheaper to produce and have the same benefits as a glass Kilner jar. The plastic jars come with a few advantageous variables:

  1. Cheaper to manufacture
  2. Lighter in weight
  3. Cheaper to distribute
  4. Recyclable
  5. Optional sizes available
  6. Excellent storage capacity
  7. Higher return on profit margins.


Stackable Jars

The stackable jar has recently become popular due to its diversity and marketing capabilities. A simple manufacturing step allows for the lid to sit on the base, enabling a stackable feature.

Stacking Jar

Flip Top Jars

Some jars also come complete with a flip-top lid. This means the jar lid can snap ‘off’ and ‘on’ without screwing or pulling off the lid altogether. These are great storage alternatives and are popular with confectionary, crafts and many other industry sectors.

Flip top Lid Jars

Small Jars

Jars can be manufactured with small capacities of up to 5ml. These are great for lip balms, expensive serums or creams. These jars are tiny but can be designed in different colour options or even look like glass.


Distinctive Jars

Jars can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Whatever shape you can imagine can be manufactured. Although the more complex the shape, the higher the cost implications for manufacturing. Some popular shapes include squares, oval, orbital or half-moon.
