What are the benefits of Using Amber Glass for Herbal Extracts, Medicinal Herbs and Essential Oils

What are the benefits of using amber glass, also known as brown glass, for herbal extracts, medicinal herbs and essential oils, rather than using clear glass?  The biggest benefit is that amber glass absorbs the most ultraviolet radiation.  Ultra violet radiation can cause products to lose flavors, aromas and to degrade.  Amber glass can help to protect the flavor, the aroma and the nutrients of your products from the effect of light.  Most often products that are affected by ultra violet rays are packaged in amber glass and stored in a cool, dry place.  Some products that are commonly packed in amber glass include:

  • herbal extracts
  • cosmetics
  • aromatherapy oils
  • medicinal herbs
  • essential oils
  • beer
  • cooking oils
  • vinegar
  • soy sauce

We offer a large selection of amber glass from our 1/4 ounce square bottle to our 4 Litre pharmacy jug.  Also, listed on this page, and sold separately, are black phenolic cone caps and glass droppers.  As always, it is the responsibility of the shipper to ensure his product is compatible with the packaging and we would be happy to send samples for testing with your product.
