Why do we package our Radiance Series in Miron Violet Glass?
Our signature formulation, the Radiance Series, contains delicate oil based extracts from plants, seeds and berries, and organic or wild-crafted essential oils. When we were deciding on the types of packaging to house this concentrated phytonutrients, we discovered Miron Violet Glass, and it was love at first sight! After researching about this, I knew it was the perfect way to package the Radiance Series.
You might be wondering: what’s the difference between Miron Violet Glass and other glasses?
Compared with the amber, blue, green, and clear glass, the Miron Violet glass provides superior protection to its contents. This high-quality packaging offers optimal protection from light degradation, hence preserving the freshness of the delicate contents which make up the Radiance Series.
History of Miron Violet Glass
Do you know that the use Miron Violet Glass dates back to the early Egyptians? There are pieces of evidence that the meticulous ancient people somehow knew that gold or violet jars were able to preserve their precious substances.
Several studies have been carried out over the last few years to test the ability of Miron Violet glass in preserving the freshness of food, hydrolates, water, oils, honey, fruits, and other perishable substances. Here are two examples:
Storage test with chives
Several herbs were stored for 3 months in several types of glass (clear, brown, violet), and were exposed to sunlight for few hours a day. After the testing duration, the quality of the herbs was analyzed and recorded. The illustration above shows clearly that the chive samples that were stored in Miron Violet show no colour change. The smell of the herbs was also stronger and fresher.
Storage test with tomatoes
In another experiment, cherry tomatoes were stored for 7 months in different types of glass but kept at room temperature where sunlight could not reach it. Again, the result shows that the tomato stored in Miron Violet Glass shows no loss of colour and no signs of spoilage.
Why do we import our Miron Violet Glass from the Netherlands?
Well, this is simply because innovative solutions and superior quality products tend to attract imitators. In order to ensure that we get the original quality, despite the cost and hassle, we chose to source this packaging from the Netherlands.
