What are PFAS?

As defined by the EPA, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, Teflon and many other chemicals. PFAS chemicals, also known as Forever Chemicals, have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe, including in the United States since the 1940s. Carbon-fluorine is the chemical composition that makes up PFAS, but it's the fluorine molecule that provides the compound with its exceptional performance, but also provides the harmful effects.

That is why every product produced by Proof+ is completely fluorine-free.
