It’s Nirvana Natural Personal Lubricants use dark PET containers to prolong the life of our products made with essential oils. PET is less expensive than a comparable glass container, weighs less than glass, and recycles well. PET bottles and jars are a good option for storing products containing essential oils because it has a high permeability resistance rating (less leaks than some other plastics). Sunlight can accelerate the expiration of your essential oils. Some sources recommend using dark amber or cobalt blue colored bottles.
Plastic containers, specifically PET, have been shown to store some products containing essential oils remarkably well. In many cases, essential oils are added to lotions or other products. When mixed with a lotion, for example, the essential oil’s potency is diluted. Its capacity to infuse the lotion with aroma is not diminished, but its capacity to damage plastic and rubber is.
|In addition, PET plastic does not contain BPA. There is no connection between PET plastic and BPA. BPA is not used in the production of PET material, nor is it used as a chemical building block for any of the materials used in the manufacture of PET.|
