Blue bottles for a green future
We’re fond of our iconic blue bottles and jars. The blue pigment reduces the light reaching the product, helping to protect the delicate aromas and herbal properties, allowing us to make skincare with few, if any, preservatives. We regularly upcycle these Yorkshire-made glass bottles for store displays – pop in-store to have a look! One stunning example is a blue bottle chandelier in our store in Westfield, London. We hope this inspires you to get creative and reuse your bottles in your own way! Otherwise, please do recycle them.
