Parkway Plastics Customer Photos and ReviewsWhat is Personal Care?

Personal care or toiletries are consumer products used in personal hygiene and for beautification. 

Personal care includes: 

Soap - a substance used with water for washing and cleaning, made of a compound of natural oils or fats with sodium hydroxide or another strong alkali, and typically having perfume and coloring added.

Shave Soap - Shaving soap is a hard soap that is whipped into a lather using a shaving brush. The lather it produces is used to coat the face during shaving, providing protection and lubrication for the razor.

Sugar Scrub - Sugar scrubs are an exfoliating and hydrating body treatment that is a more gentle alternative to salt scrubs.

Moisturizer - a lotion or cream used to prevent dryness in the skin.

Shampoo bars - Shampoo bars are an all natural conditioning shampoo in a solid bar form.

Conditioner bars - Unlike most liquid conditioners that are made with around 60-80% water, these do not contain water and are full of the ingredients you want.

Toothpaste - a paste used on a toothbrush for cleaning the teeth.

Makeup - cosmetics such as lipstick or powder applied to the face, used to enhance or alter the appearance.

Cosmetics - a product applied to the body, especially the face, to improve its appearance.

Lip Balm - a preparation applied to soothe sore or cracked lips.

Body Balm - Body balms are formulated with all-natural potent ingredients full of antioxidants and vitamins to hydrate the skin, lock in moisture, and restore skin smoothness.

Cleansing Wipes - Cleansing wipes are made of materials such as polyester, polypropylene, cotton, wood pulp, or rayon fibers formed into sheets. They may be packaged individually, or in small or bulk packaging. They are moistened with water and other ingredients, such as cleansing and moisturizing agents that help them work on affected skin.

Deodorant - a substance which removes or conceals unpleasant smells, especially bodily odors.

Lip Gloss - a cosmetic applied to the lips to provide a glossy finish, often tinted.

Body Butter - Body butter is a skin moisturizer that usually contains cocoa butter, Shea butter, coconut oil or other vegetable-based oils. It's a thicker cream than lotion and is super effective at rejuvenating dry skin, including problem areas, such as knees and elbows.

Pomade - Pomade is a greasy, waxy, or water-based substance that is used to style hair. Pomade is long-lasting and generally gives the user's hair a shiny and slick appearance.

Shaving Cream - Shaving cream, shave cream, or shaving foam is a frothy cosmetic cream applied to body hair, usually facial hair, to facilitate shaving.

Powders - Face powder is a cosmetic powder applied to the face to set a foundation after application. It can also be reapplied throughout the day to minimize shininess caused by oily skin.

Shrink Sleeves, or Shrink Bands, are a cost-effective tamper evidence and leakage prevention add on for your container. Packed flat, these PVC Plastic sleeves fit around the cap and neck of your container (or with a Thick Wall jar, it fits around the entire jar and cap). 

Simply add heat using a heat gun or even a hair dryer, and the plastic "shrinks" tight around your container. As an added feature, perforations are included along the side for easy removal, allowing your customers to remove the sleeve hassle-free.

Firsthand Supply believes what you put on your body matters, so they make products that matter.

Firsthand Supply just celebrated its second year in business in a bold, but inspiring move to reveal a rebranded product line that matches their core values and beliefs -- "What you put on your body matters, so we make products that matter."

Entrepreneurs, Josh Hester and Filipe Inacio of Massachusetts, were eager to move on from their day jobs in digital marketing and coffee roasting, respectively. Over the last several years, the duo had worked on ideas together of what they could do that would be fulfilling, and found themselves beginning an unexpected chapter in their lives. 

A Brazilian native, Filipe's thick coarse hair requires products that will hold and style, which are also safe for his sensitive skin and scalp. He had come across a hair product that was made with natural ingredients, but it was lacking in effectiveness. Upon reading the ingredients listed on the label of the container, Filipe realized he could purchase the ingredients online. 

After vigorous research and development testing, Filipe and Josh had come up with their first product -- an all-purpose pomade made from simple clean ingredients that's safe to use, with effective style and hold.

In November 2017, the two quit their jobs and dove into further developing Firsthand Supply. Sales began picking up throughout the course of the year, and they regrouped at the one-year mark, asking themselves, "Why are we doing this? What are our values and how can we push our company in that direction?"

Not chemists by trade, nor having had any prior experience in barbering or styling, they dug deep within to discover where their passion was stemming from and what purpose they were being led to fulfill. 

"We really wanted the company to be about people and so through that lens came the brand narrative of "make things that matter because people matter." 

"We are guided by a set of values that pushes toward becoming the most human centric company in the cosmetic and personal care goods industry.  ... We're building a company that values people on both sides of the transaction -- through honest sourcing, sustainable process, and a heavy dose of give-a-damn." - FirsthandSupply.com

With this in mind, it meant changing the visual aspect of their brand, from ingredients, to product names and even the number of products they offer.

Applying their mission's vision to the 16 products they were offering, they thoroughly examined each product to see if it met their standards. Believing in transparency, they wanted customers to understand exactly what ingredients were in the products - in the end, 3 products made the cut. 

Firsthand Supply never uses "parabens, phthalates, harmful sulfates, synthetic fragrances, toxins," nor do they "do any testing on animals".

Some formulas changed slightly to include moisturizing Aloe, and the new scents reflect the switch from fragrance oils to essential oils (because some synthetic fragrances are known to be made using harmful ingredients, which you can read more about on their Honest Sourcing page).

With the new switch in product names and ingredients, Filipe and Josh knew they'd also have to reconsider the packaging of their products to match the company's renewed values -- "that's where Parkway Plastics came in." 

Parkway Plastics Inc manufactures high-quality containers and caps for every industry. We aim for sustainability in every possible way. We value a sustainable factory process and are aware of the importance of choosing the right way to source and process material.

Parkway Plastics believes in regeneration by reusing, regrinding and recycling material. We aim to not only be sustainable, but also environmental. Parkway's annual plant shut down is part of its sustainability program and our strict regrind policy has proven to reduce material waste." - ParkwayJars.com

Filipe and Josh toured Parkway's manufacturing plant and experienced firsthand the behind-the-scenes of their containers being made, from start to finish. They opted for a recycled plastic (HDPE). The final product shows "little inconsistencies and imperfections in the jars and lids which we liked as it gives a nod to the story of the plastic used to make them." Read More: Sustainable Process

"Working with Parkway Plastics Inc was great -- seeing the whole process, and the people having so much value in their jobs, we were just stoked. If we were to have a factory, what would we want that to look like? This is how."

Why Parkway's Plastic Containers Are Top Choice for Packaging and Storing Shave Soaps ... and other Shave Soap FAQs!

While you can get a nice clean shave with a razor, soap and water there's more to the process of shaving -- it's an art, really. Yes, you can get by in a pinch with a dry shave and no soap (but Ouch!), but you can also whip up a few ingredients for a moisturizing DIY homemade shave soap that provides a rich lather for a smooth experience.

Whether you choose to buy shave soaps online, in-store or create your own, the next things to consider are packaging and storage for your shave soaps.  There's a variety of options out there, but you've come to the right place if you're looking for durable, high quality, lightweight containers from ParkwayJars.com!

Below you'll find answers to many of the most Frequently Asked Questions when it comes to Shave Soap. You'll also find links and a video with instructions on how to whip up a creamy, slick protective lather with either a dry or wet brush. For portable storage containers that are unbreakable and won't mark up your counters with metal rings, you'll find the most commonly purchased containers and screw-top lids in the shave soap industry from Parkway Plastics Inc.!

CAN YOU SHAVE WITHOUT SOAP

In short, CAN you shave without soap? Yes. SHOULD you shave without soap? No.

Shaving without soap, a dry shave can cause things like high risk of severe skin

irritation, razor burn, cuts caused by shaving, and ingrown hairs.

CAN YOU SHAVE WITH BODY SOAP BAR

While not necessarily recommended, there are alternative products you can use versus a dry shave. You can use conditioner, body soap, or even just water to shave,

but you run the risk of drying out your skin; it's important to moisturize your skin when you're finished shaving.

WHAT IS SHAVING SOAP / WHAT IS SHAVE SOAP

Shaving soap is a hard bar of soap that gets whipped into a lather with a shaving brush.

The lather coats the face during shaving, and provides protection and lubrication for the razor.

WHY USE SHAVE SOAP

Shaving soap softens and lifts the beard for a close and comfortable shave.

Shaving soap offers extra protection to the skin from irritation and razor burn.

A good quality shaving soap leaves the skin feeling ultra smooth and conditioned.

IS SHAVING SOAP BETTER THAN CREAM

"The advantages of shaving soap: shaving soaps usually offer a bit more of a stiffer, fluffy lather, which creates a larger “cushion” between the razor and your face.

They are also usually slicker, which makes them slide faster and more easily across the skin. Shaving soaps also give you a lot more control."

(https://www.gentlemanhq.com/shaving-cream-vs-soap/)

CAN YOU WASH WITH SHAVE SOAP

"Not all shaving soap is not meant to clean. It's designed to be slick and allow a razor to glide across the skin.

Shaving soap does not have the same ingredients as actual cleaning soaps that help loosen and wash away dirt and oils."

(https://www.fragrantica.com/)

CAN YOU MELT SHAVE SOAP

If your shave bowl or container is too big for your soap, you can melt the soap so it will spread out to touch the sides, which will make lathering

your brush much easier, instead of the bar moving about in the bowl.

While you can melt your soap in the microwave, you run the risk of your soap foaming out and becoming brittle and flaky. A better option

for melting your soap is using the stovetop because you can keep an eye on it and remove it from the heat when it's it's ready.

HOW TO MELT SHAVING SOAP USING STOVETOP

You will need:

Refill Soap Puck

Bowl that fits in your palm

Pot for boiling the water

-Place soap puck in your bowl and be sure there's enough lip.

-Put enough water in your pot to cover your bowl halfway up.

-Set your pot over medium heat.

-In a few minutes, the water in the pot will begin to boil and the soap will begin

melting and conforming to shape of the bowl.

-Once it's fully melted, remove from heat and allow your soap to cool.

-Allow the soap bowl to sit for 2 days to solidify in its new form.

(VIDEO: http://www.menssoap.com)

HOW DOES SHAVE SOAP WORK

A few tips from Gentleman's Gazette website:

"The traditional shaving soap is lathered up with a shaving brush in a container – a mug, bowl, deep dish, and a jar or directly from a stick."

-Wet your brush under running hot water or fill up your sink with hot water and leave the brush in the water for at least a minute.

-Make sure the brush bristles have soaked up the hot water. The point is to retain the moisture in the brush so that it gets directly to your face to soften your beard hairs and open pores. So, don‘t tap too much excess water off the brush.

-Lather up the soap using circular motions directly in the container. At first, the bubbles will appear large, but as you keep going, they will increase in number and become smaller and smaller until you can barely see them at all. After 25 seconds, you should have achieved a thick, warm lather.

-Apply and massage the warm lather with the soaped brush evenly across your face in circular motions. This will also increase the density of the lather, soften your whiskers, and allow them to stand up, allowing the razor to sit close to the base of the hair follicle. The longer you whisk, the richer the lather, the smoother the shave and the more your skin will be protected.

-Adding a touch more hot water will normally provide re-lathering for second or third passes, if required, without using more soap.

-Empty excess water from the soap container and leave it open so it can air-dry.

(https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/shaving-soap-guide/)

HOW MUCH SHAVE SOAP TO USE

You want to get enough soap on your brush so that it's a thick paste. This could take 20-30 seconds depending on whether you're using a dry (damp) brush or a wet brush.

There's a helpful video tutorial here - 'Lathering Tutorial - How to Lather a Shaving Soap'-

HOW TO MAKE SHAVE SOAP

To make a homemade DIY Natural Bar Shave Soap Recipe, this is an easy way to modify a regular bar soap to make it more shave-friendly.

It is a little time consuming, but these bar soaps last a long time:

-Shaving Soap Ingredients

1 bar of natural, handcrafted soap (store bought regular soaps don’t work!)

1 TBSP olive or almond oil or aloe vera gel

1-2 TBSP white clay, french clay, kaolin, or cosmetic clay

-Shaving Soap Instructions

Grate soap and on low heat, melt soap down with oil or aloe vera. It will take a while, so be patient and stir often.

Once melted, stir in the cosmetic clay (this makes a richer lather and is great for the skin).

Pour into molds (I use cardboard) or old mugs and let set for several days until it re-hardens. Will last months and will cure more over time, making it longer lasting.

HOW TO STORE SHAVE SOAP

There are many ways to store shave soap including glass or ceramic bowls (although breakable and heavy); a mug (no lid for portability); metal or tin cans (dentable; likely to leave a ring on your counter) - and then there's Parkway's lightweight, durable plastic containers

and screw-top lids that are perfect for storing, traveling or displaying on your counter. These high-quality containers are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles and can be customized

to match your logo or company colors.

Parkway's containers and screw-top lids commonly used for packaging and storing shave soap are:


Regular Wall: 100mm - 6 oz

Color: White Polypropylene, or Clarified

(Containers and caps sold separately at ParkwayJars.com)

Parkway Jars and Clear Containers Top Choice For Slime-Makers

Parkway Plastics Inc. is not only your "one stop jar shop" but it's a top choice for slime-makers (aka 'slimers') when shopping around for high-quality, durable, shatter-proof containers for storing play slime.

Containers like the one pictured below are popular choices for slimers because they come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors too!

No worries! Parkway Plastics to the rescue! In the review video below, Instagram slimer ( @sonriaslime) demonstrates the durability of Parkway Jars (volume up!):

FAQ'S

What Are Slime Containers Called? Regular Wall Jars or Containers; or Thick Wall Jars or Containers

How To Make Slime Containers - If you've just made a batch of slime and hadn't yet considered how to store your slime, you can craft your own slime container using a plastic cup cut to size and
cover it with some plastic wrap; however this could get messy, and if you're looking to share or sell your slime on Etsy, you may be ready for a professional, high-quality slime storage container.
Parkway Plastics Inc. manufactures these regular wall containers that are see-through (we call them "Clarified") and they come in a variety of sizes that are popular in the slime-naking industry (4oz, 6oz, 8oz; 70mm, 89mm, 100mm and more!).
You can also get the matching screw-top lids (we call them "natural") which is important for keeping your slime sealed properly so it won't dry out quickly.

You can use plastic wrapped around your container with a rubberband or you can use a screw-top lid to keep your slime sealed properly.

How to Clean Slime Containers
Over time, if you're storing your slime in a plastic cup or something similar, your slime may begin sticking to the sides of the cup resulting in hard bits of dried out slime residue.
To clean out a container, you should empty as much slime as possible by pouring it out into a trash can and wiping away the excess with a paper towel, before rinsing with soap and water.
With Parkway's smooth containers (no ridges) and super smooth plastic screw-top lids, clean-up is a breeze!

How to Make Homemade Mini Slime Containers
Youtuber, Nim, shared a how-to video of how she makes homemade mini slime containers. For the slime, you mix a tiny amount of glue and acrylic paint with some laundry detergent and then knead it with your fingers. For the container,
you cut a wide straw down to the size you want; add a thin layer of hot glue to parchment paper and place the straw on top (this creates the bottom of the container); cut away the excess glue and paint the bottom if you'd like;
decorate a small strip of paper to create a label and tape or hot glue the label to the container. To create a lid, carefully using a blade, cut out a circle of foam board. Then using a thin slice of
the leftover wide straw, cut it open and create a smaller piece by overlapping the ends and securing it with hot glue. Next, glue the foam piece on top of this smaller circle to create your lid.
Fill your container with a bit of slime, add your lid, voila!

DID YOU KNOW: Parkway Plastics offers mini size slime containers too?! We offer tiny containers as small as 1/8oz, and yes, you can also get matching lids for them as well! Our 1/8 oz containers are Thick Wall jars, which means there is no overhang or visible "lip" around the edge; our smallest Regular Wall jars are the 33mm - 1/4oz containers.

Sticky Situation: JELL-O Targets the Slime-Making Industry with Edible Slime; Mixed Reaction From Buyers

In June 2018, Kraft Heinz introduced JELL-O as a toy in the form of JELL-O Play Build & Eat Kits. For 121 years, JELL-O remained a food product that was tempting to touch and play with because of it's wiggly, jiggly nature.

Created for more than just eating, the JELL-O Play Build & Eat Kits included molds used to make building blocks with the gelatin. The new line of gelatin toys encouraged parents and kids to spend quality free play time together using their imaginations to build ocean explorations, jungle safaris, construction sites and sky adventures.

Now, the JELL-O Play line is targeting the rapidly-increasing slime-making industry, as it introduces the first slime you can eat!

Some parents have cringed at the idea, commenting their concerns on Twitter regarding table manners, sanitation and " ... how long before the first kid eats Borax slime?"

While those are valid concerns, other parents were excited about the "teaching/parenting" opportunity, and they suggested parents should have their children wash their hands and use a clean surface. 

Customer reviews of the product included comments about the edible slime being easy to make and play with, but the edible part being more on the "non-toxic" side rather than tasty. 

This gelatin slime mix was being offered through Amazon in two different flavors, 'Unicorn' and 'Monster'.  While the item was said to be available for pre-orderas of today, the item is showing as "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

IN OTHER SLIME NEWS ... 

Parkway Plastics Inc. is not only your "one stop jar shop" but it's a top choice for slime-makers (aka 'slimers') when shopping around for high-quality, durable, shatter-proof containers for storing play slime.

Containers like the one pictured below (left) are popular choices for slimers because they come in a variety of sizes, styles and colors too! 

These wide-mouth polypropylene jars make it easy to store and remove slime. While styrene (clear) is typically what novice slimers will turn to, these see-through, clarified regular-wall jars offers peace of mind when it comes to shipping. 

Oftentimes, a customer excited about purchasing slime is disappointed upon opening their package to find the styrene has cracked during transit due to the items not having been correctly and safely packaged. 

No worries! Parkway Plastics to the rescue! In the review video below, Instagram slimer ( @sonriaslime) demonstrates the durability of Parkway Jars (volume up!):
