Glass bottles were originally used back in 2012, until a couple of clients unfortunately dropped them and had their capsules smothered in shattered glass. The weight of the glass also tipped the scales resulting in higher postage costs.
The current plastic containers have been used for placenta capsules since 2013. They are BPA (Bisphenol) free and are classified as a #2 recyclable plastic ie. HDPE (high-density polyethylene).
This #2 plastic is ‘one of the 3 plastics that are considered to be safe and has a lower risk of leaching than other numbers‘. Even more so when no heat is applied to the plastic.
If you’d prefer, you can always transfer your placenta capsules into a glass jar with a lid after you receive them.
