Safe with MAM - Alternatives to BPA and BPS

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an important component for the manufacturing of polycarbonate (PC), whereas Bisphenol S (BPS) is an organic chemical used to make polysulfone. Among other items, food packaging, plastic utensils and baby bottles are just a few examples of products made with PC, whereas the main usage of BPS is in thermal papers and inks.  The problem: Trace amounts of chemical substances  gradually leach out of the plastic into the food and might eventually get into the body. This can affect small children and infants in particular.
As a result of exposure to BPA, experts and studies have seen disruptions to the hormone system and brain, diabetes and heart damage as well as an increased risk of cancer. Although scientific evidence is not yet conclusive, the European Commission  - based on the precautionary principle -  has banned  the usage of BPA in baby bottles in order to protect the health and safety of babies and small children.

Medical research, technical know-how and innovation make MAM the world's leading brand in baby product design. Through close contact with science and research, MAM developers are able to move ahead: That's why all MAM baby products are made from materials free of BPA and BPS – since  years.

Instead of polycarbonates (PC) or polysulfones, MAM baby bottles are made of polypropylene (PP). PP is internationally undisputed for meeting all necessary requirements. PP is absolutely free of BPS or BPA.

Today, all other MAM products, such as soothers, cups and eating utensils are made only from completely safe alternative materials. Now, the complete MAM line provides a safe alternative to give babies the perfect start in life.
