The power of the simple jar

Plastic is an excellent and versatile material that can be used with numerous products. Compatibility can be an issue, as some formulations are more basic or acidic and require a specific type of plastic to hold them. Hence, an interior liner or secondary well made of a different, more neutral plastic can be used without sacrificing attractiveness. A shive, or lining lid, can be included to prevent premature drying or oxidation, which can lead to the product taking on an unattractive colour.
