Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply coloured, almost opaque glass which is energised by light and has outstanding capabilities of preserving substances contained within for extended periods of time.
Why is this important? It offers optimal protection against the deterioration caused by visible light, protecting and maintaining the quality of premium and sensitive substances.
The appreciation people have for the special protective qualities of violet glass can be traced back to ancient Egyptian civilisation. Even then, valuable essences and healing products were kept in gold and violet glass containers.
Violet glass is also environmentally friendly, won’t leak harmful toxins into your nutrition and is reusable and recyclable.
Apotecari’s Replenish Packs, designed to refill our signature biophotonic glass bottles, are made from home compostable materials. This enviro-conscious technology won the Packaging Innovation Award at the 2019 Food and Beverage Industry Awards; another move in the war against waste.
