Wide Array of Benefits Offered by Glass
Being chemically inert, glass has a better compatibility with the vast majority of formulas. As glass packaging is nonporous and impermeable, it ensures strong barrier and sealing effect. It protects contents inside from volatilizing or being oxidized.
Dignity and elegance are part of the charms of glass packaging. Glass packaging can have consumers’ visual and tactile senses engaged. The packaging can be frosted, transparent, or colored. Anyway, glass conveys a shining visual effect. Glass bottles or containers can also be made into creative shapes. For example, Bulgari’s fragrance collection of Jewel Charms launched in 2011 shows the smooth, rounded glass design. The transparency of the colored glass beams jewel-like gloss, highlighting a sort of noble and elegant temperament. When you touch it, it feels a little bit cold and communicates a sense of heaviness which conventionally stands for high quality.
Glass packaging is a top choice for those who pursue a sustainable lifestyle. Most of glass packaging is made of natural and sustainable materials like sand, limestone and soda ash. After use, glass can be 100% recycled indefinitely. There is no loss in terms with its quality, quantity or properties. Meanwhile, glass packaging makes it possible for refilling. This greatly saves resources and reduces carbon emission. In this sense, glass is a perfect alternative to plastic packaging.
