At mimi et lulu, the safety of our babies is our first priority
At mimi et lulu, we are committed to using only the best materials for the safety of our babies, for the durability of our products and for the environment protection.
For that, we carefully designed products that do not contain toxic molecules:
Our BIBS pacifiers, the essential accessory for babies, are BPA, PVC and Phthalates Free. Indeed, research has shown that BPA is an endocrine disrupter, which means that it interferes with your body's natural hormones. Phthalates are a class of chemicals used to soften plastics, such as PVC. Chewing on a plastic toy creates small openings in the plastic, providing an avenue for leaching off chemicals from the toy into a child’s mouth. Adverse health effects also include hormone disruption.
All our pacifier holders and teethers are handmade with love from food grade silicone, 100% BPA free and natural wood materials. Food grade silicone is a non-toxic type of silicone that doesn’t contain any chemical fillers, making it safe for our babies to use and also recyclable!
All our products made of muslin, cashmere and wool are 100% GOTS-certified organic to ensure the durability of our products and the protection of our planet. GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard, it is a label that certifies respect of the environment, the workers and the consumers. To obtain the “organic” GOTS label, textile products must incorporate at least 95% certified organic fibers and must follow stricts rules described below:
- Prohibition of the use of chemicals that have a serious impact on health such as toxic heavy metals. These compounds are extremely polluting and can be found in water and soil, disrupting ecosystems because of their toxic and non-degradable characteristics.
- The use of GMOs, such as modified cotton, is strictly prohibited
- The waste water from all wet-processing units must be treated in a functional waste water treatment plant
- Packaging material must not contain PVC
- Social criteria whose main struggle is the abolition of child labor.
Kids and babies essentials made of plastic are composed of chemicals which can cause harmful development. On the other hand, kids and babies essentials made of wood don't contain PVC, phthalates, or similar chemicals used in plastic. This is why we selected natural untreated beech wood: hard, difficult to break, more durable and safer.
Beech wood is also more environmentally-friendly as it is an ordinary wood species that is not endangered and is regularly planted for the good of our planet.
Beech wood is the perfect materials for our little ones!
We believe that all of these commitments will ensure the best safety, quality and durability of all our products. We hope your baby will love our products as much as we love to create our collections for them!
