PVC products which are phthalates free, meaning that they will not affect your quality of life.
Phtalates are organic compounds derived from phthalic acid. They are mainly used as plasticizers, a substance added to plastic, particularly PVC, to give flexibility or other qualities. Phtalates are found in many common objects such as shower curtain, kid’s toys, medical tools and sometimes flooring. It has been proven along the years that phtalates are not chemically attached to the plastic that contains them, meaning they can be released in the air and inhaled. Some phtalates are suspected of having adverse effects on the human endocrine system and the reproductive system. The endocrine system consists of all organs and glands that produce hormones. The hormones have the function of regulating metabolism, growth, development and many more essential body functions.
When you see this green logo, know that your product will not release any phtalates into the air you are breathing.
