We use Miron violet glass to protect the quality and potency of our raw organic skincare products.
MIRON violet glass is the perfect packaging for Natural Wisdom because the quality of the glass is exceptional.
Black, Amber, Green and Cobalt glass are all better than clear glass or plastic but unfortunately are not sufficiently able to protect the potency of raw premium ingredients from the damaging effect of light.
MIRON violet glass offers a unique ability to maintain the potency and freshness of our products at the same high level over a much longer time period.
How does Miron violet glass work?
The sun emits visible and invisible light particles. The visible
spectrum becomes discernable to our eyes when white light is channeled
through a glass prism (see image above). At the same time though, light also contains a
part which is invisible to our eyes and lies in the radius of
electromagnetic wavelengths of infra red and UV-A.
Grunglas = green glass
Braunglass = brown glass
Schwarzglas = black glass
Violettglas = the best glass in the world! :-)
Sunlight enables all plants to grow. If they continue to be
exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light
changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process. Miron violet
glass works like a natural filter that only lets the sunlight that
protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances.
There is a large spectrum of packaging materials available nowadays,
of which many are permeable to visible light. The following graphics
show to which degree light can penetrate the different materials:
Miron Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part.
the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in
the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique
combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that
are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency
In order to substantiate these advantages, Miron Violet Glass AG has
conducted a series of tests themselves and in cooperation with
Further confirmation of functionality comes from the science of biophotonics
Storage test with tomatoes
In order to more easily prove the quality protection given to food stored in MIRON
violet glass, a microbiological experiment was carried out with cherry
tomatoes. During this test, a cherry tomato was stored for 7 months in a
white glass and in a MIRON violet glass, and
then kept at room temperature where sunlight could reach it. The result
was photographed after 7 months. The microbiological changes of the
tomato stored in white glass can be clearly seen. The tomato stored in MIRON violet glass however shows no loss of color and no signs of drying out.
Storage test with chives
Sprayed-, white-, green- and brown glass are permeable in the
visible light spectrum and don’t offer enough protection against
decomposition caused by light. As an experiment, several herbs and
spices were stored for 3 months in several types of glass (white, brown,
violet), and were either exposed to the sun for several hours a day or
After 2 months, the visible quality change was recorded with
photographs, and the difference in smell determined in a blind test with
volunteers. The illustration shows clearly that the chive samples that
were exposed to the sun have bleached in brown and white glass. As
photographed in this illustration, the sample stored in MIRON violet glass shows no color change. The smell of the chives stored in MIRON violet glass was also clearly stronger and fresher.

Water Crystals The father of the water crystal photography is Masaru Emoto born on July 22, 1943 in Yokohama (Japan). When he realized that there are no two identical snow crystals, it occurred to him to prove the quality of water over frozen water droplets and their photography. He hired a young researcher using a high-resolution microscope to confirm this thesis. In the meantime, his crystal pictures have gone around the world.
After his experience water has a memory and responds to treatments. Spring water forms beautiful harmonious and delicate hexagons, while the water hardly arise crystals from the lower reaches of rivers. In his work, he points out that the imagery of water is varied. The company resulting from the examination images, forms and appearances are not reproducible, just as nature is not repeated. Conclusions about chemical, biological and physical qualities can not be drawn with this method. But he also believes that the water crystal pictures can say something about information and energy content.
For our experiments water was white in three different in Apothekerflaschen with the types of glass, bottled brown and purple. There is a short-term storage of 7 days and a center-term storage were carried out by 74 days. We would once again point out that the imagery of the water is multidimensional and no scientific conclusions can be drawn.
