Why use amber glass bottles?
Amber glass has a number of benefits that make it a great choice for all your bottling needs. Many food and cosmetic products can be affected not only by exposure to air, but also to sunlight. UV rays from the sun are not just potentially harmful to skin but can also alter the chemical composition of a variety of products. This can affect taste and appearance, even if the items are kept away from direct sunlight. Ambient and fluorescent light can also lead to photo-oxidation or light damage. Amber glass filters out the UV rays, protecting your food and cosmetics from exposure and extending the shelf-life of these products. Many medicines are stored in amber glass bottles for this reason. Amber or brown glass is also traditionally used in when bottling beer. Using stoppered swing top bottles or those sealed with metal crown lids will not only give your homebrew a charming old-fashioned look but will also protect it from possible alterations to the flavour due to photochemistry.
Amber glass bottles for cosmetics
One of the most common uses for amber glass is in the packaging of cosmetics and aromatherapy products. Many of these use essential oils which are profoundly affected by exposure to sunlight and can easily lose efficacy. In addition, using glass minimises the risk of potentially harmful chemicals from plastic containers seeping into the products. Small 20ml amber glass bottles are perfect for storing precious essential oils. Those incorporating a dropper with a glass pipette and rubber are ideal for accurate measuring of the oils for aromatherapy treatments. Larger lotion or medicine bottles are a fantastic option for the safe storage of oils such as sweet almond, used as a carrier oil for a variety of skin treatments. Large 500ml screw top cosmetic jars are useful for face creams or body moisturisers whilst miniature 30ml amber jars are perfect for lip balms.
In addition to being tough and reusable, amber glass is perfect for protecting consumables and cosmetic products that might otherwise be damaged or impaired by exposure to excessive sunlight. Purchase amber bottles wholesale for a great value solution to your glass container requirements.
