Blue dropper bottle for tincture?

    Would a blue dropper bottle provide enough light protection for green dragon alcohol tincture? I use the amber bottles now but I need to order some more and I just think they would be more attractive on a dispensary shelf. Opinions?

    Heat and UV light are the enemies of cannabis concentrates. We use blue, because blue reflects UV, hence its blue color. We still keep the bottle in a cool place.

    Amber reflects light in the infra red spectrum, and ostensibly would be better at rejecting heat from solar gain, but it is transmitting UV light to the oil.
