One of the factors affecting my decision to buy a botanical or organic skin care product is the packaging. I’m not talking about pretty or classy packaging. Rather, I’m referring to how the product is stored which determines if the integrity of natural ingredients are better preserved.
Some years ago a beauty therapist told me that glass bottles, jars and vials are better in protecting the ingredients of natural skincare products. Apparently, glass is good as it increases the shelf life, prevents light degradation and engergizes organic or botanical ingredients. In addition, glass containers ensure no biochemical integration.
