Bottle Colors 101
The color of the bottle plays a major role in the presentation and protection of your products. It can be the source of much confusion too. Customers often start placing orders with us and we end up explaining why their products would make more sense in a different color.
We thought it would be helpful to offer a quick primer on the bottle colors offered by  Silver Spur and where each of them shines.
Perfect for showcasing what's in the bottle. Flint glass is for products where UV rays are not a concern because it does not offer light protection. It is commonly used for beverages, liquor, cosmetics, and luxury goods.
Ideal for products that require maximum UV protection or where minimal product visibility is desired. Amber bottles bring a pharmaceutical-grade feel to a product that radiates credibility.
Offers significant protection from UV rays, although less than amber. Cobalt blue brings high product visibility and a natural/earthy feel to products. A favorite for many nutraceuticals.
Provides a unique aesthetic for product differentiation. Green glass offers minimal UV protection, but more than flint. Often used for wine bottles and droppers.
