New additions to the Maria Glass Jar Line increase maximum diameter and jar capacity offered up to 200ml
Baralan, a consolidated player in primary packaging for the cosmetics and beauty industries, has introduced two additions to its Maria Jar line: the Maria Jar 150 and 200. Developed primarily for ease of use with skin care products, the two new, larger sized glass jars expand Baralan’s standard product offering, increasing the maximum jar capacity and diameter with a special-sized, large neck.
With a sophisticated, round design that exemplifies the entire Maria Jar line, the new jars feature a wide neck making it considerably easier for users to reach product inside the container and maximise its use. Additionally, both new Maria Jars have the same neck finish: GPI 89/400. By sharing the same neck size, both jars can be paired with the same accessories, caps and protection discs. To have only one pairing of various accessories to both sized jars creates benefits not only in terms of supply and cost of components, but also in terms of purchasing, logistics and customisation.
The Maria Jar 150 has a 150 ml filling capacity, while the Maria Jar 200 has a 200 ml filling capacity. The cap features a “double entry” thread that guarantees a consistent and more reliable closure around the circumference of the neck, ensuring integrity of the filled product with no product loss.
Aligning with Baralan’s focus on sustainability and environmentally friendly packaging solutions, the glass jars are an ideal alternative to plastic packaging as they are fully recyclable. Made with premium glass, all jars in the Maria Line include a portion of post-industrial recycled (PIR) material, a means of minimising waste by keeping as much recycled components in the production stream as possible. All Maria Jars can be customised with accessories and with various decoration techniques that use only compliant inks and water-based paints, further reducing environmental impact.
“We are pleased to expand our popular Maria Jar line with the Maria Jars 150 and 200 – our two largest sizes to date – giving even more packaging options for brand owners,” said Maurizio Ficcadenti, Global R&D Manager at Baralan. “In the cosmetics industry, packaging is just as important as the product itself, and our Maria Jars are a practical, yet elegant pairing for skin care products.”
