Whether it’s the food we eat, the clothes we wear, or the products we use on our skin; we’ve grown accustomed to shopping with our eyes. While sometimes this works out just fine, other times looks can prove to be deceiving. 

Choosing skincare products for their cute, colorful bottles is like ordering the most beautiful piece of cake only to realize it’s made entirely from cabbage. Not good.

I recall admiring the vibrant bottles on my mother’s bathroom sink when I was younger. As I grew older, my friends and I started using similar-looking products. I was disappointed to learn the contents weren’t nearly as magical as the bright appearance of the container. But, why?

Simple answer – Sunlight!

Now, I’m not here to throw shade at products in flashy packages; actually, it’s quite the opposite. But low-quality packaging causes the ingredients to lose their original integrity. This oversight, unfortunately, impacts tons of otherwise wonderful skincare products.

The same sunlight that we depend on for growth also accelerates the degradation process of our beloved products.

Plants need sunlight to thrive, but if left in the light for too long, they begin to wilt. Similarly, when skincare products are continually exposed to light, they begin to lose potency. This happens because the ingredients start to oxidize and spoil with too much heat and light.

If you want to ensure that you’re getting the most from your herbs and oils, there’s no better way than by looking for products stored in Biophotonic Glass, aka UV Miron Glass, and 100% recyclable.

Let’s discuss the absolute importance of Biophotonic Glass in protecting powerful botanicals.

How Does Biophotonic Glass Work?

This dark glass is super selective about the kind of light it allows in, keeping whatever’s inside safe from harmful rays.

Violet, ultraviolet, and infrared rays are welcomed in while the rest of the spectral range of visible light is blocked out. Don’t feel sorry for all that extra light, it doesn’t do any good for what’s behind the glass. The violet light, however, naturally energizes and improves the quality of substances while lengthening the durability and potency without preservatives.

History of biophotonic glass

The Egyptians used gold and violet glass containers to preserve their precious substances, but they weren’t the only ones who figured this out. 

Biophotonic Glass was also used during the middle ages. It became less popular with the introduction of new preservatives.

People realized that the remedies stored in these glasses could not only be preserved but also enriched by the ‘violet energy.’

Thankfully, Biophotonic Glass made a comeback in the late 20th century as people began to crave a more holistic approach.

What Makes Biophotonic Glass
Better Than Other Bottles.

The biggest issue with other glass colors – like blue, green, amber, and clear – is that they allow too much visible light to enter which damages the product.

These alternative glass colors are letting everyone into the bottle with zero regard for how it influences the inner quality. Sounds like your skincare products are decaying, right?

The decrease in shelf life due to overexposure is where artificial preservatives become necessary. If you’re anything like me, you don’t want them anywhere near your skin.

High-quality rosehip oil can be quite pricey due to the laborious process involved with extraction. The rosehip benefits of this effort is a substance chocked full of skin-nourishing nutrients.

The oil is rich in essential fatty acids, specifically oleic, linoleic, palmitic, and gamma linoleic acids.

These compounds are converted into prostaglandins upon absorption into the skin. They are a group of  lipids responsible for controlling inflammation and blood flow. Prostaglandins are naturally present in the skin. They emerge at the site of injury or infection to help regenerate tissues and cellular membranes.

Notable for its high levels of Vitamin C, in addition, the oil is also rich in Vitamins A, E, and D.

Vitamin A holds extensive wrinkle-fighting powers and leaves skin feeling soft and supple.

With antioxidant and soothing benefits that contribute to healthy metabolism and immunity, Vitamin D is a valuable component of rosehip.

Vitamin C plays a huge role in brightening skin and boosting collagen.

Benefits of Biophotonic Glass

It almost seems a little unfair to even compare Biophotonic Glass to other options because the benefits are so abundant. 

I’ve already gone on about the extended shelf life, revitalizing effect, and natural protection of the delicate substances within, but there’s more!

Many people have started using Biophotonic Glass for their drinking water based on its ability to absorb the high-frequency violet light and boost the liquid. Violet light mimics the frequency of the human nervous system. Thereby supports our general well-being and promotes healthy bodily function.

Besides being a beautiful way to present products, it’s eco-friendly. UV Miron Glass is 100% recyclable.

Biophotonic Glass is preserving powerful botanicals and enhancing their effects. 

It’s honestly a wonder that everyone isn’t already protecting their goods with Biophotonic Glass. 

The dark violet glass helps maintain the vigor of substances with respect to effectiveness and longevity while enhancing their natural healing abilities. These exceptional properties make Biophotonic Glass the optimal container for skincare solutions.

Now to answer the question which sparked this in-depth analysis: ‘Why Your Mother Never Told You About Biophotonic Glass.’ My best guess is that she simply didn’t know better. This miraculous container is quickly becoming all the rage among those who care about preserving their products.

Do you have any products contained in UV Miron violet glass aka Biophotonic Glass? If so, have you noticed a difference in potency or preservation compared to products stored in other packaging?
