    Default ChildProof Packaging

    We now have childproof bottles available as an option for both PG and VG liquid.

    We did a lot of research into suitable childproof caps for dropper bottles.

    We don't like the idea of using a glass bottle with a separate childproof cap, because we feel that in practice some people will just leave the dropper in there anyway. And, what do you do with the drippy dropper after you replace the CP cap?

    We did find childproof glass droppers, but a small child could easily chew through the rubber bulb.

    We could not find any locking caps that would fit over droppers in our squeeze bottles. Tamper evident, yes. ChildProof, no.

    So MissJaaxx came up with our solution, which is to drop our bottles into a pharmacy style pill bottle. This is exactly what the pharmacy does for prescription eyedrops, eardrops, etc which don't come in CP packaging. Convenient, leakproof and sufficient to keep small kids out (or at least slow them down enough.)

    We're offering it as an option for .25 per bottle (it's a checkbox next to the nic strength dropdown.) We felt like it would be a better solution than increasing the costs for everyone. And after you have a couple at home, you won't need to use that option next time.

    That's an excellent idea!

    Thank you! It has worked out very well. I'm so glad now that we made them optional, because quite a few of our customers have expressed that they are appreciative of the option NOT to use the child proof bottles, due to arthritis in the hands making them difficult and painful to open.

    Just out of curiosity, where'd you find the childproof glass drippers? I've been looking all over and can't find them on any of the sites that sell glass bottles.

    We don't have child-proof glass drippers. The thing with those is they have that rubber tip that a child or pet would love to chew on anyway, and childproof isn't doing anyone any good if they bite that ribber tip off!

    Instead, we put the entire bottle inside a childproof pill bottle.

    Edited to add: My bad, I went back and read that we found some when researching.. Since it was a few years ago, I honestly don't remember. I'll run it by the Mr. and see if he recalls where he saw them.

    I much prefer non-childproof bottles. IF I still had children in the house I would make sure my supplies were out of their reach. SO, this is easier for me.

    He doesn't recall what the site/shop was, but he said it was from overseas, and you had to buy a minimum order of 5000 droppers or so. I'm guessing Alibaba, but that might not be it.

    Kimberly-- A lot of people feel the way you do.. We actually have quite a few customers who have arthritis in their hands and have mentioned that they love that they can opt to use non-childproof bottles.
