Why use glass jars?
Lab-grade glass is truly inert (neutral) to ingredients. It is also made without any plastic added to it, unlike some commercially manufactured glass. It is fully recyclable and reusable. The corks are bio-digradable and are sustainable as well. Glass does not alter your recipes and any beauty recipes you create using incredible pure, clean ingredients deserve to stay in pure, plastic-free handmade glass jars.
How are they made?
Katari glass jars are handmade by Katari artisans in Egypt and frosted (if you pick frosted jars), using a very unique technique of iron filing instead of sand blasting. It creates velvety, smooth milky-white finish that does not wash off or rub off. Each piece is expertly crafted out of pure lab-grade glass, which is heat resistant and your jar is dishwasher-safe (just use typical caution, as it is glass and it can break, as any other glass).
Take a look where and how our glass is handmade
We literally searched high and low and went through a lot of possible options before we started working with this group of artisans. They have never made accessories like this. But now they do and the result - beautiful, hand blown pieces of art that help our planet, help support artisans and their craft, and keep plastic out of landfills.
