Medicine bottles range
The range starts with tiny, 5ml bottles right up to one litre size medicine bottles, in clear, blue, green or amber glass and a wide variety of caps. Dropper bottles with pipettes, for example, are the easiest way to dispense small quantities.
Coloured glass is often used to protect the contents from degradation by UV rays and looks traditional, while there is a variety of shapes available in both modern or traditional styles. Clear plastic bottles with white PVC press caps or spray caps can also be useful if the safety of glass is an issue.
