You go to the drugstore looking for eye drops. After checking the shelf, you notice that the bottle has a different color. This time the bottle has a black color. Same product but different presentation. Don’t panic! They are probably using the new dropper bottles made of violet glass. This is a new type of glass that protects delicate products from harmful light rays. Medicines that are contained in dropper bottles usually have components that are very delicate and are easily damaged when they come into contact with light. Violet glass blocks the harmful rays of light creating a protective effect that will make your products last much longer.
Light is harmful? I didn’t know that!
Let’s explain this a little better. It is thanks to light that we can see the world around us. To achieve this, light is made up of a series of rays. Imagine that light is projected like a rainbow. The first ray is the visible light itself. It is the one that allows our eyes to capture images. This ray also has the ability to alter the molecular structure of certain substances, especially those contained in dropper bottles. Have you noticed the warning on some products that they should not be exposed to direct light? Visible light is capable of activating certain microorganisms that cause your products to deteriorate faster. That is why it has become common for companies to use dropper bottles made of violet glass.
But glass is still transparent
This is the first question many of us have: how can it protect if the violet glass is still transparent? It turns out that, although it blocks the passage of visible light into the dropper bottles, it allows other rays to pass through. Light is also composed of ultraviolet, violet and infrared rays. The violet glass allows these rays to pass through the glass. These rays were found to help energize the products. This makes them last much longer without losing their physical properties. Companies have migrated to dropper bottles made with violet glass because it allows them to produce products that are more natural, durable and maintain their capabilities for much longer. The next time you see a dark-colored dropper bottle at the drugstore, remember that this is the best option you can buy. You’ll definitely receive a natural, high-quality product.
