Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 26, 2007
Bioelements is announcing its seventeenth year of responsible packaging. The professional skin care brand has always been committed to excellence. From carefully selected ingredients to unparalleled quality control - nothing gets overlooked. After nearly two decades, one difference between the purity of this skin care line and its competitors has become very clear: its glass packaging.
"Since its launch in 1991, Bioelements has used glass to package nearly all of its products," says Bioelements founder and President, Barbara Salomone. "It's a natural choice for planet sustainability and it ensures the integrity and safety of our formulas. And that's a belief we've never compromised."
With an increase in scientific studies of body-accumulated toxins, there are rising concerns about plastics leaching chemicals into consumables. Bioelements packages primarily in glass to help ensure that every bottle and jar contains only those ingredients meant to be absorbed by the skin. Glass contains no chemicals and undergoes little, if any, interactions with them. Its inertness and impermeability makes glass one of the safest, healthiest packaging materials available. In fact, glass is the only packaging material to be categorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS).
Glass meets the highest environmental standards possible. Made strictly of naturally occurring ingredients, it can be recycled limitlessly - never losing its quality or purity. From creation to recycling, the material's lifestyle is environmentally responsible -- preserving raw material, reducing energy consumption, and lessening greenhouse emissions on a major scale.
"When you package in glass, you tell your customers you care about the purity of your product and its impact on the environment," explains Joseph Cattaneo, President of the Glass Packaging Institute (GPI). "Consumers can be ensured that glass packaging protects the quality and integrity of the products they purchase."
Bioelements packages over 80% of its products in glass. For the past seventeen years, Bioelements has strongly believed in responsibly producing its products - its products are manufactured in the United States, contain no synthetic fragrances or colorants and are not tested on animals. The brand proudly continues to lead the industry with its standards of safety and purity.
