Frequently Asked Questions about Bottiful Home Products
What are Bottiful Home bottles made of?
Bottiful Home bottles are made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic. This plastic is food-safe, environmentally-friendly (easily recycled) and toxin and BPA-free. PET plastic is recycle code 1 and is accepted in most curbside recycling programs in the USA.
Are Bottiful Home bottle designs waterproof, even in the shower?
Yes. Bottiful Home bottles are completely waterproof, smudge-proof and resistant to chemical wear, whether you’re using our printed bottles or our waterproof labels, pre-printed labels.
What is a lotion pump?
A lotion pump is a pump that’s designed specifically to be used with thicker, high-viscosity liquids. It is the best pump for liquids such as shampoos, conditioners, lotions and thicker soaps. Bottiful Home uses only lotion pumps in all its refillable bottles.

How do I unlock my Bottiful Home bottle pumps?
To unlock your Bottiful Home bottle pumps, please ensure safety clips are removed from the neck of the pump. While holding the largest part of the white tube in one hand, use the other hand to twist the pump head in the direction of the arrow on top until you can easily depress the pump head. You may hear or feel a slight “click” when the pump locks/unlocks.

How do I get my Bottiful Home pump to face the front of the bottle?
Just remove the pump, unlock it (if it’s locked), then hold the pump head in your desired position while tightening the pump neck back onto the bottle.

How are plastic bottles made?
PET plastic bottles start out in the form of plastic pellets made in whatever color the bottles will eventually be. Then the pellets are melted into a structure called a “preform”. The preform has threading at the top but no real bottle shape yet. Then the preforms are heated to a specific temperature to allow for melting into shape and are blown into a mold, a process known as blow-molding. The bottles are quickly cooled to maintain shape, then printed, filled, and capped, all by machines.

How did Bottiful Home get started?
Founder, Laura Pallotta, saw a need for a product that could take the ugly drug-store shelf look out of the shower and replace it with a highly functional and beautiful refillable bottle that was also easy to use.
Watch this video to see Laura describing the discovery of this need and the trials she encountered trying to meet this need:
