What we keep out!
Phthalates are added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability, pliability and elasticity because of which they are used in the manufacturing of diapers and even toys. Because of the nature of the chemical, they are easily released out of the diapers which has an e an adverse impact on health as well as the environment.
Health impact: As diapers are in direct contact with the external genital of infants and toddlers for a long period of time each day for 2-3 years they tend to get absorbed into the skin of babies. Studies have found that Phthalates have been considered as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Children are more vulnerable to phthalate exposures because of their hand-to-mouth behaviors, floor play, and developing nervous and reproductive systems.
Environment impact: In the landfills of India disposable diapers and other waste (as single-use plastics) are subjected to intentional or incidental open-fire burning. On combustion these kinds of waste release toxics fumes of Phthalates. Upon combustion, to some extent, Phthalates break down into phthalic anhydride which is even more toxic. There is evidence of asthama due to these toxic fumes. Even when they are in the landfill they release these chemicals causing land and water pollution.
Lead softens plastic and makes it more flexible so that it can go back to its original shape. It is also used in plastic toys and diapers to stabilize molecules from heat.
Hand-to-mouth behavior of infants and toddlers exposes them to lead exposure which can seriously harm a child’s health, including damage to the brain and nervous system, slowed growth and development, learning and behavior problems, and hearing and speech problems.
Sharp Edges, points, small parts
All our diapers are tested for sharp edges and points in the fabric and snaps so that they do not pose any harm to your little one.
They are also tested for any loose small parts that may pose a threat to your child’s safety.
