Ask Osmosis :: Do Your Bottles Contain Bisphenol-A?Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a controversial chemical that is used to enhance the durability of some plastic products. BPA is sometimes found in polycaronate plastics with the identification code of 3 or 7. The use of BPA has recently been the subject of much discussion and research as some studies indicate it may be associated with negative health effects.
While experts have been unable to come to agreement on "safe" levels for consumer products, The European Union, Canada and the United States have banned BPA use in baby bottles. At Osmosis, we have chosen not to use BPA. Most of our bottles are made from Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Resin which is plastic code #1 and is BPA free. A small number of our bottles are made from plastic code #6, also BPA free.
