Do you ever get frustrated when you attempt to store food, oils, or sprays only to have it get rancid or moldy? The secret to preserving freshness depends on what type of container you use. I had the opportunity to review Infinity Jars and was sent a collection of bottles and jars to try.
Each Infinity Jar is made of tinted ultraviolet European glass that almost appears to be black. They come with air-tight seals, are scent-proof and are designed to preserve and rejuvenate freshness for long periods of time. In a comparison test with clear and amber glass bottles, Infinity Jars were the only ones whose organic contents lasted for 6 months or longer.
Chives stayed green and fresh for 2 months. Cherry tomatoes were kept for 7 months. When they were taken out of their jar, there was no color loss and looked like they’d just been picked off the vine. In clear glass and amber bottles, the chives and tomatoes would have molded within days.
Infinity Jars has a large selection of containers for the kitchen, to store cosmetics and for apothecary needs. They are excellent for preserving cooking oils, essential oils, face serums, toners, perfumes, herbs, salts, tea, flour, and lotions. Some have screw tops, others have fine mist dispensers, droppers, and oil spouts.
My collection included a 500 ml glass-on-glass Apothecary Jar, 1 Liter round glass bottle, 250 m glass screw top bottle, 30 ml glass cosmetic style wide mouth bottle, 30 ml glass pipette dropper bottle, 5 ml, 10 ml, and 15 ml glass fine mist spray bottles, and a 10 ml glass push pump bottle. Variety packs are available on the website. They also came with a bottle cleaning cloth and bottle labels.
Infinity Jars, if properly taken care of, will last a lifetime. They’re so beautiful I want to find a place to display them prominently on a shelf. If you make your own lotions, essential or cooking oil infusions, or herbal combinations (DIY) you couldn’t find more effective containers to store them in.
Being a visual person, I would probably use them more for oils, herbs, and lotions rather than food items, because I’d forget what’s inside, even with a label. That’s just me, though.
The science that makes Infinity Jars so effective in preserving organic matter is the fact that they’re made of tinted ultraviolet glass. The darkness blocks out harmful visible light rays, which quickly degrades organic material. However, because the tint is ultraviolet it also lets in two beneficial light rays that have been proven to extend the shelf life of organic matter for as long as 2 years.
If you’re in the market for attractive and long-lasting containers, I recommend you purchase Infinity Jars.
Infinity Jars provided me with samples to try in exchange for this review. However, all opinions are my own.
