Dark Containers for Light Sensitive Products

We carry a selection of dark containers for light sensitive products. There are some products that are sensitive to UV rays.  Exposure to light may hasten product degradation or cause your product to lose it’s flavor. Among these products are:

  • essential oils
  • dyes
  • medications
  • flavors
  • beer
  • photography film
  • chemicals
  • adhesives
  • inks

We are told that some customers use our black plastic pails for hydroponic gardening, as the black color helps to keep down algae growth.

This article is comprised of amber colored or black containers that help to block out the UV rays.
