NHT Violet Glass, the Perfect Filter for Sun's Rays

When you’re outside on a clear day, you'll see the sun. The golden glowing sun, the bringer of light, warmth and all life on Earth. All the plants, all the animals and of course, all of us. The sun gives life, but also radiates harmful rays that can dry out, damage, degrade and decay.
Even in the winter when the sun is further, meaning less warmth. The sun rays can still damage light sensitive skin and products. 

There’s only one kind of glass in the world that filters the sun’s rays perfectly. Allowing the beneficial rays in, while keeping the harmful rays out. NHT Violet Glass jars and bottles protect, prolong and enhance natural products.

A Long Violet Past

The appreciation of the special protective powers of violet glass can be traced back to Ancient Egypt. Valuable essences (oils) and natural healing products were kept in violet glass vessels. It’s even reputed that the legendary Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra, rubbed Aloe Vera on her skin every day that was kept in violet glass jars.

In Eastern tradition, the color violet represents the harmony of the universe. The combination of blue and red is Yin and Yang. Yin: the stored energy that preserves matter. Yang: solar energy, that is outgoing and free. Spiritual, scientific or aesthetic, NHT Violet Glass jars and bottles are the perfect choice to store natural products.

Five Types of Glass

To really understand how this “miracle” is possible, let’s look a little deeper into the science. Basically, the sun’s rays include visible light, ultraviolet light, and infrared radiation. 

Clear, amber and green glass allow all the rays through, including the rays that will damage your product. While at the other end of the spectrum, black, or very dark glass, allows none of the rays to pass through, including those that are actually good for your product. NHT Violet Glass allows in the Ultraviolet beneficial light and Infrared light while blocking harmful sunlight. 

A Natural Barrier

NHT Violet Glass also acts as a natural barrier for energy stored within the product itself, keeping it all inside. This prolongs the natural qualities of the product. In scientific tests, when compared to other glass, plastic or aluminum packaging, NHT Violet Glass has a significant better storage quality. And without using preservatives. The longer shelf life and the possibility to reuse and recycle, makes NHT Violet Glass the sustainable choice.

NHT Violet Glass is also a scent barrier. Keeping scent in while preventing outside odors from changing the smell of the natural products. 

On a three month experiment with chopped chives, the NHT Violet Glass kept the chives green and usable. While the brown and clear glass allowed the chives to dry up. 

 NHT Violet Glass can be stored on the counter, in the cabinet or in the fridge. Dishwasher safe. Reusable and sustainable.
