When we develop our products, we always do so with a view to the long-term. We never compromise our core values: safety, quality and design. This makes our products durable and means that they can be used for a long time and inherited by one child from another.
We are extremely careful in our choice of materials, and all our products undergo rigorous testing. Materials that come into contact with food have been classified safe for use with food, and textiles that come into contact with the child?s skin are all approved according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 class 1. We are extremely picky in choosing our suppliers, and constantly check to ensure that our high standards are being met at every step of the production process and in all countries.
We have also decided to lower the environmental impact of development, production and distribution of BabyBjörn products. In addition to following all existing laws and regulatory requirements, we pledge to consistently work to further minimize our footprint on the environment. One example of a step in this direction is our new organic line, launched in 2009.
Your child?s safety is of the utmost priority to us, here at BabyBjörn, so we always have our products checked by independent test institutes. As a parent, you should be able to feel safe and secure when you and your child use a BabyBjörn product. When children suck on their baby carrier, get messy in their Eat and Play Smock or sleep in their Travel Crib, you can rest assured that these products have been properly tested and approved.
When you choose a BabyBjörn product, you can rest assured
that any fabric that comes into contact with your child is gentle on his
or her skin and safe to chew and suck on.
All BabyBjörn textiles that come into contact with your child?s skin have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1. This category is comprised of baby products that comply with the strictest requirements with regard to human ecology, which means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens.
The products in our organic line also comply with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) requirements. This means that 95% of the cotton used was organically grown. GOTS also regulates the use of chemicals in the entire production process.
BabyBjörn?s plastic products are completely free from bisphenol A (BPA).
In recent years, the risks associated with plastic products
containing BPA have been highlighted by various health organizations
(among others, the US federal agency the National Institutes of Health).
BPA is an industrial chemical mainly used in the production of polycarbonate plastic.
Polycarbonate plastic is not used in any of BabyBjörn?s products.
Our kitchen and bathroom products are completely free from PVC, phthalates, cadmium, lead, bromine and chlorine.
Our kitchen range has also been certified safe for foods and complies with the safety standards for plastics both in Europe (ECC) and the USA (FDA).
Here at BabyBjörn, we want you to be certain that you have chosen both a functional and safe product.
To ensure that you feel safe in your choice, we?re starting to mark our plastic products as ?BPA free?.
