Cardboard with bubble wrap
The classic packaging for all e-commerce needs is bubble wrap. It protects well and keeps the package safe without any issues. It is the cheapest of all options available for packaging materials like soaps. The protection will ensure that your inner packaging is not damaged during the bumpy ride to the doorstep of your customer.
Cardboard with Packing Peanuts
The other option is with packing peanut fills, the package is very secure as there is no space for movement for the item inside. However, this is a really messy option and should only be used if there are many individual small loose packs inside the box which cannot be taped together.
Cardboard with Foam
The costliest but the classiest of them all is foam pack, where there is a well cut foam placed inside the box which has cuts in the shape of the product ensuring zero movement and complete protection of the product. This is the costliest option as well.
