Glass is the preferred medium for many products as it is inert, nontoxic, easy to clean, easy to maintain and easy to recycle.  Glass is made from sustainable raw materials.  It offers unparalleled purity and quality product integrity.  Glass has always had one major drawback, glass breaks, and glass shatters and when that happens it causes a mess, or much worse, an injury!  But now we have a solution-    Our bottles are coated with tough polycarbonate that can withstand high impact, and here’s the best part, should the glass ever break, our coating keeps all the shards contained and away from human touch. So there is drastically less chance of injury or mess.

The plastic coating faithfully follows the contours of the bottle, completely covering any difficult shapes. The protective coating on the bottle has a good resistance to most solvents and only the most aggressive acids can affect it after a significant period of exposure. This means that the bottles contents, even if hazardous, will be contained within the protective 'skin' in the event of an accident. In addition it has a high tear strength and exceptional clarity.

The coating has the added advantage of raising the breakage threshold of the glass container making it safer in transit.
