Joyboxx & Playtray are free of harmful BPA and Phthalates!

BPA stands for Bisphenol A, a chemical used to make certain plastics and resins that are used in containers. BPA is also used in the coating of metal products, such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Some studies have even found BPA in cash register receipts and dental fillings.

Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. They are used in products such as detergents, beauty products, vinyl flooring and children’s toys. People are also exposed to phthalates by eating and drinking from containers containing them, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.

BPA and phthalates are often called “everywhere chemicals” because they’re found in so many products — from the water bottle you to take to the gym to the flooring in your kitchen. Many studies, primarily in rodents, have linked BPA exposure to many health problems, including reproductive disorders. Phthalates have been linked to health issues such as male sexual development and attention-deficit disorder in children.

According to new studies presented at the 2013 annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, BPA could, possibly, increase the risk of miscarriage in women that were already considered most at risk. The second study involved phthalates and men where elevated levels of the chemical were associated with a potential fertility risk. Both studies are small and any results should be considered preliminary with further research needed prior to any conclusion.

The FDA, National Toxicity Program and other institutions are actively researching the safety of BPA and phthalates and new research can lead to a better understanding of what effect these chemicals have on humans.

While there is no way to avoid BPA or phthalates completely, Passionate Playground is dedicated to bringing you products free of these unhealthy and potential toxic chemicals.

What is Food-Grade Polypropylene?

Your safety is one of our top priorties. It is imperative that the plastics we use manufacturing Joyboxx and Playtray are of the highest quality and are safe enough to come in contact with your toys and most importantly, your body.

Joyboxx + Playtray are manufactured with an FDA approved Food-Grade Polypropylene (PP). PP is a recyclable, versatile, thermoplastic polymer (or plastic) used in a variety of food product packaging such as margarine, yogurt, ice cream, sauces, plastic sandwich bags, microwavable products, as well as containers for meats and vegetables.

Polypropylene is a safe alternative to other common plastics such as polyvinyl chloride, more commonly known as PVC or simply vinyl. Where PVC is known for off-gassing toxic halogens and creating acids in high-temperature conditions, the Joyboxx’s polypropylene is strong, flexible, odorless, resistant to toxins, boasts a high melting point of 160 to 166 C (320 to 331 F), and does not emit harmful chemicals into food, liquid, or in this case, your favorite adult toys.

As the third-most common polymer found in your household, there’s a good chance that you have already used a product manufactured with polypropylene today.

And best of all Joyboxx & Playtray are dishwasher safe!
