What finishes and paints do you use?
Our paint is ultra-safe and all our products are lead, phthalate, and formaldehyde safe.
Paint is considered safe when it has toxic materials under 300 parts per million (ppm). In order for a company to claim low toxicity, it must have no more than 90 ppm. Franklin and Ben products come in at less than 10ppm. We perform annual paint tests to maintain consistent quality.
A selection of our cribs are GREENGUARD Gold certified and are tested towards the latest CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards on a yearly basis. In addition to lead and phthalates, the labs also test for other heavy metals such as cadmium, antimony, chromium, mercury, and arsenic.
While there are currently no regulations for VOCs, in your baby's best interest we also test for VOC contents and the results are significantly low.
