Filling Your Cosmetic Products in Bags with Zippers

Salts & Powders in Bags with Zippers

BPI Labs has received requests for a gusseted bag filling service for powders and salts for years, and we’ve finally responded with a bagging service that has range and options that’ll meet your needs.  While the service is specified to work with salts and powders, additional tooling would enable us to fill these bags with liquid product.

If you take a look at the top 10 selling products in the bath salts category at, you’ll see a significant number of those products filled into what the industry calls gusseted bags.  To gusset something is to reinforce a seam with fabric or material, and many bag styles fit this definition.  The great news is that BPI Labs can fill your product into many of these styles.

Bag Styles

We’re able to fill shaped pouch, standup doy pouch, 3-side seal bags, side-spout pouch, and flat bottom bags, which are shown throughout this page.

Shape Design

Bags can be designed to have a unique shape that reflect your brand logo and a unique seal shape to bring those curves to the top of the bag.

Unique Features

Zippers and Spouts

One of the more appealing features of these bags is the ability to include zippers or other resealing mechanism to add convenience to the customer’s reuse of a product.

Quality Screen Printing

These bags are a stellar medium for high-quality screen printing and label design.  And if you need your product to speak for itself, then the bag can be made of a clear medium to showcase your uniquely styled ingredients.
