Lifefactory beverage bottles are made from soda lime glass. This is the same container glass used for wine bottles and other food storage containers. It is strong but not impervious to rapid temperature changes or impact. Like any bottle, it will expand and crack if left in the freezer or hit with boiling water.
DO NOT PUT OUR BEVERAGE BOTTLES IN THE FREEZER.
Lifefactory baby bottles are made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is known for its superior durability, chemical and heat resistance, and is excellent for use in chemical laboratory equipment and cookware. This allows the baby bottle to go from the freezer to boiling water pot without incident.

Glass is clearly a better choice for baby bottles. Plastic bottles can leach chemicals into milk or juice (including BPA/BPS); glass does not. Plastic bottles can scratch, and scratches can harbor bacteria—glass does not. And plastic bottles typically end up in landfills when their useful life is over; glass is recyclable and reusable, and is better for the environment.
Most parents like the idea of using glass but worry about breakage. Lifefactory offers a solution by combining a sturdy glass bottle with a custom-designed silicone sleeve to protect the glass from breaking.
