The chemical BPA, or Bisphenol A, which is used in particular for the manufacture of certain plastics, is thought to be hazardous to health. So at Curver we took action without waiting for restrictive legislation or conclusive scientific evidence. As soon as it became apparent that there could be some risk to health, we immediately made changes to our raw material to make all our products safe and thus protect the health of our consumers.
What exactly is BPA?
Bisphenol A or BPA is an industrial chemical used to make a hard, clear plastic called polycarbonate. BPA was thus used in the development of certain types of baby feeding bottles as well as in numerous consumer products, including reusable water bottles, drinking bottles and food containers.
The marketing of baby feeding bottles containing BPA was banned in France in 2010 and throughout the European Union in 2011. Since 1st January, 2015, the ban has been extended, although only in France, to include any container or utensil containing BPA that has been designed for direct contact with food.
In fact, exposure to Bisphenol A mainly occurs via food. It is possible that small amounts of BPA can migrate to food and drink which is stored in products containing the substance. This is why as soon as concerns were expressed about the impact of BPA on human health, we at Curver, decided to remove every possible trace of it from our products.
All Curver products are now guaranteed 100% free of Bisphenol A, or BPA
