Glass dropper bottles represent an incredible value. Glass containers come with a surprising variety of customization options, are easily transportable in bulk, and can be very cost-efficient. Let’s dive deeper though; here are 5 things to consider when purchasing glass dropper bottles, and 5 compelling reasons to use glass droppers.
They come in a wide range of sizes
Glass dropper bottles can be tiny, or they can be relatively large. Silver Spur’s glass dropper bottles come in sizes that range from 5ml all the way up to 100 ml, with numerous, incremental sizes in between. Whether you are looking to bottle a small, medicinal product or essential oil to be applied on a drop-by-drop basis, or a larger-quantity medication, there is a bottle size made to fit your needs.
They are a safe storage method
Glass dropper bottles allow you to store all kinds of mixtures, medicines, and chemicals. Glass dropper bottles are primarily used to store and transport items like eye drops, liquid medications, CBD products, essential oils, ear care medications, hair care products, and other hygiene products such as soap or shampoo. Clever up-cyclers all over the world have also found ways to repurpose these versatile, safe bottles to hold just about anything. What makes them so useful though?
Due to the manufacturing processes used to make glass, dropper bottles are inert. That means that the few added materials used in their manufacture will not seep into the bottle’s contents and contaminate them. They are incredibly easy to transport and store, and are a naturally reusable resource that can either be repurposed or recycled regardless of what they contained inside.
They come in a variety of colors
The color of your glass dropper bottle matters. Although color can be used to make a product more attractive, lending increased branding utility to your droppers, color isn’t just for show. Colored bottles, especially amber bottles, help prevent chemical changes from occurring with the bottle by blocking harmful UV light from interacting with the liquid inside.
Silver Spur offers a range of colored bottle options including flint, green, blue, and amber that are ideal for both marketing purposes and to protect the integrity of the contents within.
You have a choice between dropper inserts
Dropper inserts are attachments that are used for administering the contents of the bottle in single-drop increments. Typically, dropper inserts are used with eye drops, ear drops, or hair care products.
There are two types of dropper inserts available: vertical or horizontal. Both give users exceptional control when dispensing the bottle’s contents, with the horizontal dropper insert giving the user a slight advantage, especially when self-administering solutions like eye drops.
There are a wide range of bottle closures available
If you don’t require a dropper insert, there are numerous types of bottle closures available to prevent the contents of the bottle from spilling during transport. They come in two different classifications: dispensing vs non-dispensing.
Dispensing closures feature a pipette that extends down into the bottle. One common type of dispensing closure is the bulb syringe that’s commonly paired with a dropper bottle. Non-dispensing closures do not have a pipette, but otherwise can be very similar. Both types usually come with a child-proof or tamper-resistant mechanism.
The advantage of wholesale
Glass dropper bottles are versatile and convenient. They come with a surprising amount of customization options, and can be employed for a near-infinite number of purposes. The biggest advantage to using glass dropper bottles is that their value increases as you buy them wholesale, without the typical worry of environmental impact.
