Why would you choose amber glass over clear (flint) glass? Well it would depend upon your product. Typically, you see beer in amber glass bottles. The pharmaceutical industry, as well as companies that produce some skin care products, and companies that produce essential oils also prefer amber glass. Amber glass absorbs the most ultraviolet radiation compared to green, blue or clear glass. That is important because UV rays can alter the properties of some products such as beer contributing to spoilage. By protecting your products from harmful UV rays you are extending their shelf life.
