Isn't all Glass the same?

Did you know ultraviolet radiation in Sunlight that causes damage to our skin and that can bleach a beach towel left outside all summer can damage your product in the same way.

The best way to protect your product is to ensure that it is stored in a cool, dark environment to prevent light exposure. When this is not possible, packaging your light sensitive product in the proper glass container can also help prevent quality loss or damage. Glass comes in clear, amber, green, cobolt and more. Each provide different levels of protection against UV light.

Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply coloured, almost opaque glass which is thought to be energised by light. Because of its natural ability to block light, Biophotonic glass is commonly used in organic skincare packaging as it protects precious ingredients from perishing in sunlight. The appreciation people have for this special protective dualities of violet glass can be traced back to the heyday of the ancient Egyptian civilisation. Even then, valuable essences and healing natural products were kept in a gold and violet glass containers. Hemp nation is proud to use Miron Glass for our Organic Creams and Scrubs
