We hand pour carrier oil into amber glass bottles up to 16 oz. Larger sizes are poured into plastic bottles and jugs. Amber glass provides a high degree of light blocking protection to enhance a longer shelf life to oils. We recommend our larger sizes (above 16 oz) be transferred into glass upon receipt.
Contraindications: Nut Allergy - This virgin (unrefined) Marula oil is not recommend for those with a tree nut allergy as this oil contains nut allergens.
