Argan Oil Argania fruit oil is from the argania spinosa tree, which grows only in Morocco and can live from 150-200 years. Argania oil has almost twice as much vitamin E or tocopherol as olive oil and it is much richer in linoleic acids.

It softens fine lines, reduces blemish scars, renews tired, dull skin and also helps treat acne. Our argan oil is purchased from women’s cooperatives in Morocco to support their social and economic welfare. These cooperatives work within a UNESCO biosphere reserve that ensures the protection and reforestation of Argan trees.

Chives Storage Test

Chives Storage Test
In the world of packaging materials, glass still maintains its important position, despite its fragility. Traditional glass colors (clear and amber) allow light of the visible spectrum to pass through and therefore don’t offer enough protection against decomposition induced by wavelengths of this spectral range. Dr. Hugo Niggli and Dr. Max Bracher confirmed this scientifically by performing an experimental test on storage stability of various herbs and spices.
Intensity of Chives Tested by Odor

As the analysis of biophotons is unique for an integral and objective evaluation of herbal preparations, ultra-weak photon experiments were made in order to determine the quality level of stability in different herbs and spices. The results of the biophotonic analysis for chives are shown in figure 4: The level of bio-energy (vital force) is significantly higher in the samples stored in violet glass compared to those stored in traditional, clear- and amber glass.

It has to be noted that this observation was found in the samples stored in the room, as well as in those stored in sun-exposed areas. The conclusion made above with chives was confirmed by similar findings after analysis of photographs, odors and biophotons of four additional spices (parsley, dill, paprika and laurel). The results of biophotonic measurements of food stored over a period of 15 months, show that it is very probable that the following statement can be confirmed in case of long-term storage of these investigated products: The significant differences which occurred in the products stored in different colored glass and exposed to the sun will, long term, also occur in the products stored in various colored glass in the room.
Cherry Tomatoes Storage Test

For most users of MIRON violet glass, these scientific experiments to objectively rate bio- energy are difficult to follow. Therefore, a microbiological experiment with cherry tomatoes was done to confirm, more simply, that violet glass better protects the bio- energy of food. As had become clear in the previous study where the herbal samples had been exposed to the sun, the most significant differences were detected when the products were stored in clear- versus violet glass. Therefore, Dr. Hugo Niggli bought cherry tomatoes and bottled them individually in a clear and violet apothecary jar on the 22nd of June 2007. The tomatoes were then stored at room temperature in an apartment.
On the 22nd of December, exactly half a year later, a microbiological change judged as mold was observed in the cherry tomato stored in the clear glass bottle. A month later, on January 21st 2008, the result of this biological experiment was photographed. For this purpose, the cherry tomatoes were taken out of the bottles, as illustrated in figure 5, and the microbiological changes of the tomatoes stored in both bottles were photographed. The cherry tomato stored in violet glass retained its red color and had not dried out, contrary to the tomato stored in clear glass.
Advanced Kirlian Energy Photography
Everything in nature radiates. This radiation, whether from a human being or biological material, is closely connected to its vital energy. It is impossible to discern this energy optically with the human eye.
Then the scientist Dr. Dieter Knapp further developed a form of electrographic photography which was initially discovered by a Ukrainian couple named Kirlian and which made photography of energy fields possible.
Using this advanced technique, dried Spirulina algae of the same quality was packed in different containers, stored for four weeks and then photographed.

The sample stored in MIRON violetglass (figure B) displayed an intense and dynamic energy field. In contrast, the quality of the energy from Spirulina stored in amber glass (figure A) or plastic had clearly changed and showed a less valuable emission pattern.
Transmissions Curves of MIRON Violetglass
Transmissions Curves of MIRON Violetglass
The shown curve depicts the percentage of light that transmit the violet glass in the range between 200 and 1500 nm (Ultraviolet to Infrared). Ultraviolet light is divided in UVC (200-290 nm), UVB (290-320 nm) and UVA (320-400nm).
MIRON violet-glass has a zero transmittance for the invisible UVC and UVB radiation (No invisible UVC and UVB radiation penetrate MIRON violet-glass). A certain amount of the invisible UVA and the visible violet radiation trespass the MIRON-Glass with a maximum at 390nm. MIRON violet glass is not permeable in the visible light spectrum from blue to red.
Light from the 700 nm spectral range into the invisible infrared, shown until 1500 nm in the above curve, also tranmsit the MIRON violet-glass with a peak at 950 nm.
(The Fraunhofer Institute in Munich (Germany) believes the process of decomposition in of, for instance, ripe plants to be due to the radiation from the visible light. In order to test this observation, chemical analysis by gaschromatography of rosewater stored for two months in both violet and brown glass was performed at this institute. It was clearly shown that the amount of several important aromatic compounds decreased significantly following storage in brown glass within 2 months. No change was observed in the sample stored in violet glass pointing to quality protection against decomposition by visible light.
Biophotonic research, the study of light particles emitted by cells, has shown that these wavelengths are very important for communication between living cells. Recent results from this scientific field by Professor Popp and Dr. Niggli have also shown that the quality of nutrition not only depends on chemical composition, but also on the content of light energy and the potential information that is provided by UVA and IR frequencies. This fundamental bio-information plays a crucial role in the control of all vital processes. Biophotonic measurements show that food (ripe grain, plants and fruits, freshly squeezed or dried) as well as any extracts from plants ( as example olive and linseed oil) are perfect suppliers of light energy; a transfer which is closely connected to optical memorization within the biological sample.)
