Pouches vs Hard Sided Containers

Soap Bottle Packaging

  • Advantage
    Durable and well accepted by consumers, soap bottles are nothing new. PET bottles can be very durable and long lasting. Finally bottles can include integrated dispensing caps (but which add to the cost of the packaging solution). 
  • Disadvantage
    Requires labeling, and provides for limited base colors for the bottles themselves.  Can break and leak when exposed to drops or impacts. Are not environmentally friendly and un-filled bottles are more costly to warehouse.

Pouch Packaging

  • Advantage
    Lower in cost while providing maximum marketing surface space for images, graphics, information, and logos. Requiring less plastic then some hard sided soap bottles, and can be made of more earth friendly materials. 
  • Disadvantage
    Can have a higher failure rate from impacts as the flexible substrate is thinner and less able to absorb some impacts. Spout pouches are newer to the US consumer market.

Benefits of Carepac’s custom soap packaging

You might feel silly investing so much of your time into finding the perfect soap packaging, but we understand why you are. When customers are overwhelmed with choices and all the information, first impressions matter, and for many customers their first interaction with your brand is through its sustainable packaging. Here are some reasons why you should choose Carepac’s custom soap pouches for your product.

It’s a sustainable choice

Not only can our Biax PE bags be recycled because they consist of only one type of plastic, but laminated bags simply use less materials than other types of soap packaging. Additionally, since most of our soap pouches are used to package soap refills, your customers won’t be throwing away pump top bottles every time they need more soap. It’s a win for you and a sustainability win for the environment.

Soap Pouch Features and Configurations

Liquid Spout 

Liquid spout bags are gaining popularity for use in a variety of applications, soaps and hand gels included. Pouches with a built-in spout are an economical and efficient choice for packaging liquids, and make resealing the bag easy for your customers. The location and size of the spout can be adjusted.

Customization Capabilities

From holographic effects and high-gloss features to subtle pops of color and soft touch packaging, we can help add stylish embellishments to your soap packaging. Need a logo or custom labels? No problem. We provide brand design services to help you create the branded packaging your product deserves. Everything is fully customizable, from the top of your pouch to the bottom and everywhere in between.


All of our bags are manufactured with materials that are approved by the FDA, meaning the contents within will be safe and free from chemical impurities. All soap pouches purchased from CarePac are free from TSE, BPA and Sulfur & Phthalates.


Our bag finishes can be incorporated into the entire pouch or on one section to achieve the look you desire. Our most popular finishes include glossy (it’s the default finish for barrier pouches for a reason!), matte, soft touch, and holographic.

Your Sustainable Soap Packaging 

When Sustainability Matters for Soaps

Carepac offers a selection of materials designed for soap packaging. If you’re concerned about your environmental impact, like so many companies are, we’re proud to offer environmentally-friendly packaging options, including soap pouches made out of recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable plastic. At CarePac, we have two exciting new recycle-ready materials for making recyclable plastic bags. Learn more about our sustainable packaging below.


CareRecycle is a recycle-ready Biax PE solution which can be “Code 4” recycablable depending on your jurisdiction's requirements (check locally).  It has a lower barrier than traditional lamination, but has nice clarity, and can be matte varnished or made nearly completely opaque.


CareCompost films are our selection of industrial, managed, and ambient compostable materials, including CareCompost-KP, CareCompost KVP, and CareCompost PVP. These are made from both bio-based and non bio-based materials, like PLA and PBS materials.


CareSilver are economic yet effect metalized barrier films. For liquid soap refill spout pouch application we typically will recommend reinforced materials such as CareSilver-PVNP. The reinforcement helps reduce pouch blow-outs and deformities.
