How can I package Humbleeandme's 'Solid Olive Primrose facial serum' in something other than tins?

I could not find tins in my area and just poured this serum into less-than-ideal lip balm tubes. Despite my hot, humid climate, the product has remained solid (unlike virgin coconut oil on the kitchen counter). Do the lip balm tube and the fact the product has only been indoors (not refrigerated) give a misleading impression of how well this product can remain solid?

How do consumers comfortably handle well-behaved lotion bars that are not in tins?
