A high quality product needs an at least equal packaging!
I our opinion, the conventional packagings like plastic boxes or amber glass do not fulfil these requirements, so we decided to bottle all our products in violet glass as standard.
The excellent characteristics of violet glass had already been used by the Ancient Egyptians and the alchemists of the middle age, to protect their precious elixirs.
Especially for natural Supplements, it should be very important to protect the sensitive materials from visible light, for optimal quality preservation over a long period.
Only violett glass is able to block the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part.
At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of any products.
Furthermore, violet glass is impermeable for oxygen (oxidation processes) and does not evaporate toxic aerosols like many synthetic materials. It’s 100% reusable and protects the environment.
Another part of our packagings are the small silica gel sachets, which are added to all of our capsule products. The granular content is made of silicon dioxide, which has a very strong hygroscopic effect (binding moisture).
Due to temperature fluctuations, water can condense in the bottles and promote the decomposition process. Using of the silica gel sachets prevents this to happen.
Our silica gel sachets are free of DMF (Dimethylfumarate).
A cherry tomato was stored for 7 months in a white glass and in a violet glass, and then kept at room temperature where sunlight could reach it. The result was photographed after 7 months. The microbiological changes of the tomato stored in white glass can be clearly seen. The tomato stored in violet glass shows no loss of color and no signs of drying out.
Chives after 3 months storage in several types of glass (violet/brown/white), and were either exposed to the sun for several hours a day or kept inside. It shows clearly that the chive samples that were exposed to the sun have bleached in brown and white glass. The sample stored in violet glass shows no color change. The smell of the chives stored in violet glass was also clearly stronger and fresher.
