Welcome friends! Have you ever wondered about those nasty things called PFAS chemicals that you keep hearing exist within your products? Have you questioned why some companies claim to be ‘PFAS-free’ but are unsure what this means? In today's blog, we’ll discuss PFAS and explore the authenticity behind ‘PFAS-free’ labels. Join us on a journey to understand the ProofPlus difference–how our stringent processes and commitment to transparency ensure products you can trust for a cleaner, safer experience.
Before we dive deeper, let’s start off with the basics.
PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, is an umbrella term encompassing a group of various synthetic chemicals known for their persistent and widespread use in industrial and consumer applications. Many companies nowadays label their products as ‘PFAS-free,’ insinuating the absence of PFAS chemicals from their formulation, production, and packaging. However, some companies use deceptive practices by substituting PFAS chemicals with alternative fluorinated compounds or derivatives. This marketing strategy allows them to maintain the PFAS-free label while incorporating chemicals with potential environmental and health issues. As consumers become more vigilant, it becomes crucial for companies to embrace transparency and adhere to stringent standards to provide products that align with the promise of being PFAS-free.
Rigorous Raw Material Selection
Our journey to PFAS-free greatness begins with the careful selection of raw materials. Our in-house chemist scrutinizes and handpick each component, ensuring it aligns with our commitment to being environmentally conscious and free from harmful substances. No compromises, no shortcuts–just pure dedication to creating products you can trust. With any new tweak to our standard formulations, our product goes straight to third-party testing to ensure no PFAS/Fluorine is present. This rigorous quality control process exemplifies our unwavering commitment to transparency. It ensures that every ProofPlus product meets and exceeds the stringent standards for PFAS-free and fluorine-free excellence.
