As a mum-to-be or a new mum, you want the safest start in life for your baby. You need to feel that you can totally trust the products you give to your child.
BornFreeTM was created to offer peace of mind to parents when it comes to feeding, by producing baby products that are 100% free from Bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates and PVC.
The BPA story
You may be aware of concerns about Bisphenol-A, also known as BPA. It's a chemical that's widely used in plastic manufacture and is commonly found in food and drink containers, including some baby bottles and other baby products.
Reports have suggested that small amounts of BPA may leach into food or drinks stored in polycarbonate bottles and containers, especially when the contents are heated.
Recent research suggests that BPA is a chemical that mimics the effect of the hormone oestrogen and may cause developmental and neurological problems in babies and young children.
That's why BornFreeTM decided to start producing BPA-free bottles back in 2006. The company wanted to create products that mums and dads could feel confident were not only high-quality but also safe for their babies.
In fact, not only are all of BornFree's products BPA-free, they're also free from the chemicals phthalates and PVC.
In 2008, Canada banned all baby feeding products including bottles made with BPA, while in the US steps are being taken to introduce a similar ban in several states. However, in the UK, you can still buy bottles and food containers made from plastics containing BPA.
