What does BPA Free mean?

What is BPA?

BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins for well over 50 years now. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are commonly used for storing food and drink, like water bottles.

What are the effects of BPA?

There is a lot of research linking Bisphenol A to a range of serious health concerns, although it is still important to note that no single study conclusively proves that BPA is harmful to humans. Some of these include increasing the risk of certain cancers, reduced fertility, diabetes and birth defects.

How do you avoid BPA?

There is a growing call to stop manufacturing plastics with BPA and using BPA in food containers as there are less hazardous alternatives.

Individuals may find it hard to avoid BPA completely. They can choose products that do not have BPA in them but this is not necessarily going to be obvious through labelling or information on the container. Or consider an alternative such as Food Grade Silicone. 

Why We Chose to Use Food Grade Silicone Instead. 

Simply because we are mums and we want the best for our little ones. We wouldn't want our children drinking from or coming consuming unnecessary potentially harmful plastics. This is why we use Food Grade Silicone in our all products

Food Grade Silicone is recyclable, dishwasher and microwave safe, and free from BPA, BPS, and other phthalates
