Safety

NOT A TOY

WARNING: La La Beads Jewellery is designed to be worn by adults, not children.  Our necklaces carry a 0-3 warning as there is a risk of small parts and strangulation if you were to leave a child unattended with La La Beads jewellery.

Our jewellery is tested by a UKAS Independent test house for compliance with EN 71. Part 1, 2 and 3.  We also perform regular, independant strength tests in-house using a batch system.

Our products carry the following marks.

0-3 Safety warning 

BPA FREE

BPA is a common chemical, mainly used in combination with other chemicals in the manufacture of plastics and resins.

Those opposed to the use of BPA in consumer products, such as the Environmental Working Group (EWG), argue that BPA copies thyroid and sex hormones in both animals and humans. According to studies they reference on their website, BPA has been revealed to alter the brain and nervous system development as well as change reproductive systems, even at low exposures. This is especially harmful to young children.

In the UK we are seeing some credible sources also reducing their use of BPA. Tommee Tippee is committed that all of their products are BPA-Free. Breast Cancer UK is calling for it to be removed from all food and drinks packaging and replaced with safer alternatives.
