Default Lotion bars...who knew?

Just wanted to say how amazed I am with how my hands feel after making and using lotion bars! I'm giving them away to people I know that work outside and EVERYONE is flipping out!
I'm thinking of giving away about 24 for the holidays but the packaging is challenging...supposedly in tin containers rust will form and most of the plastic containers are very limited in their height...I saw some beautiful things on alibaba ,but a 5000 count minimum order seems excessive!I picked up some gift card metal containers on sale at Michael's yesterday and plan on lining them but even with the mold I have that closely mimics that size it comes up just shy in length.
Any suggestions, gang?
On an aside, yesterday at the Dollar Store I saw my first commercially produced soap with tallow as the primary ingredient. The usual for me, regardless of origin has always been palm and palm kernel oils.It was Yardley brand with lavender...

I recently saw this lotion bar recipe that used the neatest recycled paper tubes. http://soapdelinews.com/2015/11/cran...ar-recipe.html. You can get the tubes at SKS... https://www.sks-bottle.com/340c/fin8w.html

I've heard such good things about lotion bars they are on my short list to try.

I really need to experiment with the lotion bars. I need to come up with something that isn't greasy
