Create new opportunities to share your product with sachet packaging. This dynamic packaging option gives you the flexibility needed to package your liquid and powder products for your customers. Learn more about sachets, how to use them, common types, and their benefits below.
What Is a Sachet?
A sachet is a container designed to safely store products. It is primarily used for liquid and powder products. The specific design of a sachet varies depending on the type and use, but most use the following features:
- Flexible packaging
- Custom sizing
- Air-tight sealing
- Easy opening
- Affordable manufacturing
Sachet packaging is made of flexible material that can fit your designs. When you work with a co-packaging provider, you can easily streamline your existing packaging and shipping or create a new product using an eye-catching design.
How to Use Sachets
Thanks to the polymer laminates, high-barrier foils, and coated papers used in sachet packet manufacturing, there are a number of products that you can store and ship in these convenient containers:
- Powders, like coffee, sugar, cosmetics, and drink powders
- Liquids, like cough syrups, lubricants, and liquid vitamins
- Pasts, like ointments, cleaning gels, and makeup creams
- Pharmaceutical products
- Cleaning products
Work with a sachet co-packer to decide on the best type of sachet pack for your particular product. Consider using them to update your packaging line. A sachet pack can often replace a bottle to offer a more convenient package for your old or new products. You can also use this style of packaging to provide sample sizes to encourage customers to try new products or to offer your best-selling products to new customers.
Types of Sachet Packs
Explore common types of sachets to find the best option for your liquid, powder, or cream products. These are the most common packaging options available from leading co-packing manufacturers:
- Stick pack
- Bottle-shaped stick pack
- Sachet packet
- Flat pack
Ask about your options for seal patterns and sizes to make the most of customizable sachets possible. A sachet powder design may use a flat pack or stick pack format, while liquid products may be better promoted in a bottle-shaped stick pack.
Considering a sachet type you don’t see? Sachet packing technology is incredibly flexible and can create alternative packaging solutions for unique products. Reach out to a professional team to ask about other flexible product packaging solutions.
Benefits of Sachet Packaging
Your packaging decision matters. After investing in your product, be sure you also invest in quality packaging that promotes its benefits and safely stores your product until your customer uses it. Be sure to discuss the benefits of sachet packaging with your sachet co-packer. Depending on your goal, a particular type of packaging may be better suited. Work with a skilled and experienced co-packing team to ensure your packaging is safe, secure, affordable, and professionally designed. Here are some of the benefits sachet packaging provides.
An improperly sealed package can lead to premature spoilage, damaged products, and a shorter expiration timeline for your customers. These issues can affect how you transport, stock, and sell your items.
A sachet offers excellent sealing properties. This shields your powders, liquids, and oils from oxygen and sunlight exposure, keeping them fresher for longer.
Excellent sealing properties also mean less risk of leakage. A leaking liquid container can be a liability, particularly if the contents are pharmaceutical or contain allergens. Promote safe delivery and long-lasting preservation of your items by choosing a sachet.
Cheaper Than Alternatives
There are many different products and designs to choose from as you explore new packaging solutions. Compare for yourself to see how sachets represent an affordable alternative.
Sachets help you save materials and reduce the overall investment in packaging. One way they do this is by reducing the number of materials necessary. Many bottled products require a separate label, foil seal, and cardboard or plastic box. Cardboard or paperboard boxes may require plastic bags or other containers.
Sachets are made out of advanced packaging materials that are thin, durable, and affordable. You can easily tailor the package size to the product amount to reduce excess material use.
High Designability With Digital Printing
Make the most of your logo and branding with sachet packets. This state-of-the-art material allows you to digitally print any graphics, text, and colors on the entire length and width of the package.
The high designability and flexibility of digitally printed packages open new doors for your packaging design team. Consider new ways to rethink your logo, shake up your design strategy, and help your items fly off the shelves.
Digital printing also helps co-packers to be more flexible with manufacturing runs. A digital printing solution requires less setup between runs, so ask about packaging minimums and small-run orders for samples and prototypes.
Eco-Friendly and Ready for Recycling
Choose mono-plastic alternatives to store your sachet powder or liquid products in an eco-friendly way. These sachets are recyclable and use environmentally friendly manufacturing techniques to minimize waste and greenhouse gasses.
Not all packaging products are recyclable. Some plastic products with multiple layers aren’t suited for recycling purposes. Mono-plastic designs promote recycling at most participating centers.
Be sure to ask your co-packing team about recyclable options as you prepare to improve your existing design with sachets. Take a step forward and offer mono-plastic alternatives to multi-layered packaging that isn’t recyclable.
