Infinity Jars recently gifted me with a few of their Premium Ultraviolet Treated Glass Jars and Bottles for review and, right away, I knew exactly how I wanted to test out and share these jars… DIY Skincare.
So, today, I whipped up a batch of my ‘Give Me That Glow’ Face Butter and used one of my Infinity Jars 15 ml glass jars to store it in.
I love making this face butter and I use it all of the time. It’s super moisturizing, has lots of vitamins and fatty acids… and it really will make your skin glow!
Even better… it’s super simple to make.
‘Give Me That Glow’ Face Butter
2 ½ tsp Shea Butter
20 drops of Rosehip Oil
1/3 tsp of Jojoba Oil
1-2 drops Vitamin E
1-2 drops Sweet Orange Oil (or your choice of any essential oil that your skin loves)
Make certain your prep area and supplies are clean and sterile. If in doubt, boil your supplies for 10 minutes prior to using them.
- Melt shea butter in a double boiler or small glass bowl over a small pot of boiling water, stirring lightly until melted.
- Carefully remove pan from heat and add additional ingredients (Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin E, Essential Oil)
- Transfer your mixture to a cool bowl or dish, cover and place in refrigerator til’ firm. This will take 20-30 minutes.
- Remove from the refrigerator and whip for maybe 30 seconds (You can use a mixer or wire whisk, but for this small of an amount, I just use a fork)
- Transfer your ‘Give Me That Glow’ face butter into a glass container with an airtight seal and be ready to get your glow on…
This amount normally lasts me 2-3 weeks.
Note: I make this in small batches, so as not to have concerns over having to use a preservative.
Although you can never be too careful (after all, this is going on your beautiful skin), as a general rule of thumb, there is less concern about preservatives when making a product like this that is all butters and oils.
When you get into products that contain water, or water based ingredients, the need for a preservative becomes of extreme importance.
So, for this reason, I stick with products that are made with butters and oils, such as face butters, body butters and lip balms.
That being said… it’s still important to use best practices with all of your DIY products and one way you can do so is to use high quality storage containers.
Which brings me to the products I want to share with you today.
Since it’s founding in November of 2011, Infinity Jars has been the leading producer and retailer of Ultraviolet light glass products.
From Infinity Jars:
“Infinity Jars set the standard for premium glass jars and containers. We are proud to boast the largest collection of unique styles of ultraviolet glass you’ll find anywhere. Our products are created and backed by scientists and health advocates around the world. Extensive research has gone into each of our products, and we guarantee you can leverage the incredible power of these jars to maintain the optimum freshness of nearly any foodstuff, dried good, lotion, or essential oil.”
Apothecary Jars, Fine Mist Spray Bottles, Lotion Pump Bottles, Screw Top Jars, Oil Bottles, Water Bottles, Dropper Bottles, and Slow Pour Bottles.
All of the jars and bottles are made with Premium Ultraviolet Treated Glass. This type of pigmented glass blocks out all harmful visible light rays which keeps ingredients fresh much longer than plastic or even regular glass.
Several tests have been performed on the jars showing their superiority to amber and clear glass. One of the tests included a seven-month test on fresh tomatoes. The tomatoes that had been stored in the Infinity Jars glass showed no color loss & still appeared fresh. The tomatoes stored in the other glass… well, use your imagination… not so good.
My Thoughts and Experience:
I decided to choose a skincare selection and will look into purchasing some of their larger bottles to store oils and herbs in the near future.
Ageless Beauties,, let me tell you… these aren’t your basic glass jars and bottles. I’ve used a lot of glass for storage and this is a much thicker and higher quality of glass then any I have ever used.
These jars also feel like they would be more resilient if they were dropped. I haven’t tested this theory out but they do feel very sturdy (They’re still glass, however, so I wouldn’t recommend dropping them on purpose).
The lids are of high quality as well and the seals are, indeed, airtight.
High quality ultraviolet glass
Keeps your food and other goods fresh longer
Beautiful bottles and jars that will look great in your cabinets or on your counters (Pretty things are always nice to have around)
They are not the cheapest jars around, but you do get what you pay for, so I can’t say it’s really a con. I think we’re worth making sure our DIY products and fresh oils and herbs stay as fresh as possible for as long as possible.
Wrapping it up:
I feel more confident about the freshness of my products when storing them in these jars!
I will definitely be using these for a long time. I will also be ordering some of the larger food storage jars in the near future.
Where to Buy:
Infiinity Jars come in a number of shapes and sizes with pricing ranging from $8 to $99. They also offer a number of sets that can save you a lot of money when building your collection.
