Packaging for solid shampoo: the new beauty trend that enhances hair, saves money and preserves the environment.
Packaging for solid shampoo. You may already have seen the advertisement for the shampoo bars on your favorite social media. On the one hand, solid shampoo is cheaper because you need less of it. On the other hand, it completely eliminates plastic packaging. Finally, it enhances your hair, cleansing it in a delicate way.
However, we are no beauty influencers. Hence, we would like to focus on the packaging side of the topic. Obviously the key element is the cardboard, with a wide range of customization options at reasonable costs.
The packaging examples for solid shampoo
In this article, we have decided to take you on a journey through the most successful packaging solutions for solid shampoo. Among other things, the holidays are approaching and this particular formulation fits into any suitcase.
Let’s start with a practical hinged lid rollover box containing a macaron-shaped soap bar. Perfeclyt fitting the contents, you can also use the packaging as a soap-holder on the sink. The graphics are essential and centered around the color reflecting the turquoise nuance of the product.
Now let’s move on to a gable top box for a drop-shaped soap. The background element is always blue but this time the packaging has more of a pharmaceutical footprint. Evidently the product is intended for a niche with well-identified dermatological characteristics.
Instead, this slim tuck end box is completely different. The product inside is ayurvedic. From a graphic point of view, we have a lovely floral pattern on the right and an essential typeface on the left with a teal background. As you can see, the packaging is simple but resolved, reassuring and aesthetically pleasing.
Here too, the vegan version of the solid soap has a convenient cube-shaped box. A repeated and stylized illustration represents each main ingredient. These colorful motifs remind us a little of the 80s purses by Naj-oleari and that is why they’re 100% on point. We almost feel like collecting them all!
For those who travel a lot and want to carry along all variants of solid shampoo from their favorite brand, there’s a handy solution. It is a very simple pull out box with almost no graphics, containing as many slots as small soap hearts. Just a dominant color and a negative logo for the graphics and that’s it.
The last item on our review is the most basic and cheap solution possible: the sleeve. For these soaps with a slightly vintage flavor, a large and clear typeface on any base color is enough to convey the key message. Zero overpackaging and zero add on, so that the product sells itself.
