Many times, we see glass bottles as simply a container for packaging. However, glass bottles are widely used in beverages, food, cosmetics, and medicine. In fact, glass bottles play a role in other functions as well as the packaging.
Let's talk about the role of glass bottles in wine packaging. We all know that wine is almost always packaged in glass bottles, and the colors are dark. In fact, dark wine glass bottles can protect the quality of the wine, avoid the deterioration of the wine due to light, and protect the better storage of the wine. Let's talk about glass bottles of essential oils. In fact, essential oils are easy to play and the requirements for light are very strict. Therefore, essential oil glass bottles must protect the essential oils from being volatile.
