Manufactured from HDPE, this plastic lip balm filling tray is great for filling standard lip balm tubes. This tray is simple and easy to use, and allows you to neatly fill up to 50 lip balm tubes at a time, ultimately speeding up the entire lip balm production process.
Type: Lip Balm Tubes that are indicated as Standard will fit on the Standard filling tray.
How it works • Simply invert the filling tray and gently insert the lip balm tubes into the openings. Do not push them in all the way, but only until they stop about halfway into the hollow. This will enable the caps to fit snugly, and will leave a small amount of lip balm above the top of the tube. • Turn the tray over and proceed to pour the lip balm base into the tubes. • Leave at room temperature to harden for about 5 hours. • Once the lip balms have solidified, use a sterile plastic spatula to gently scrap away the excess lip balm base on the surface of the tray. • Invert the filling tray once again and remove the filled lip balm tubes. • Gently wipe around the rim of the lip balm tubes, and attach the lids and labels.

Rating: I don't care that the tray doesn't sit completely flush with the tubes, my products are handmade, not factory made.
This tray has saved me SO MUCH TIME! before discovering this, I was buying tubes from a different supplier. For a lot more money. And filling them with a dropper standing at my stove. Thank you NDA, now I can pour quickly and have more time for my baby AND my business.

Rating: I bought this tray along with the natural lip balm tubes, and I can't say how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this tray! As the previous person said it does leave a bit extra at the top, but it didn't bother me at all! I taped off whatever holes weren't need and it meant I could do a few small batches of different kinds of lip balms with ease! This is by far one of my favourite things that I ordered :-)
Rating: I used this tray for the natural tubes (not slimline) purchased at NDA and it was not ideal. The tubes fit through the holes but they do not sit flush with the tray, sitting 2-3 mm below the tray, which means it's easy to over pour as you cannot see the tubes filling up very well. You can scrape off the excess, as a previous reviewer said, but after the lip balms harden and you try to remove them from the tray it's very easy for the excess wax to chip off, leaving you with a immperfect lip balm looking very handmade. If you are ok with your lip balms looking rough/rustic and handmade then these trays will work fine but if you don't, these trays don't work well with the lip balm tubes in natural sold here.

Rating: If there`s one thing I have learned that I can no longer live without whlie making lip balms is this filling tray... WOW. The fact that it`s clean, fast, and if you over poor, you scape it off the top. (yes, I`m clumsy). first time I made a batch without it, it took ALL night, because I kept spilling, getting some on the tube, so I had to wait till it dries, cleaned the tube (oil and butters are NOT easy to do), and then be able to add stickers. So if you`re making lip balms or plan on making them, this is a great investment, it can literally save hours of work. once dry, you take your tubes out, and no mess! :)
