Size Comparison Info

Our Size Comparison Info page will help you visualize the dimensions of our containers against common objects: a 12" (305 cm) ruler, a standard deck of playing cards, and a quarter.

Each container is filled with exactly 8 fluid ounces of colored water unless stated otherwise. Keep in mind that our bottles and jars are designed to hold a certain product volume, not weight. As you can see, many of the containers have quite a bit of empty space at the top to allow for overflow. This extra space will accommodate products that are less dense than water and are sold by weight. For example, 8 oz of whipped hand lotion by weight will likely take up more space than 8 oz net weight of water.
