What does CPSIA mean?

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) was passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Bush on Aug. 14, 2008. CPSIA is designed to allow the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) to better regulate the safety of products made and imported for sale in the U.S. CPSIA also contains regulations that are intended to make products for children under age 12 safer by requiring manufacturers and importers to show that these products do not have harmful levels of lead and phthalates.

What does this mean to consumers?

You can be assured that the Momma Couture bags are safe for children. Our hardware, fabric and materials are lead and phthalate free.

What are phthalates?

Phthalates are a group of harmful chemicals commonly added to products to make them soft and flexible. Phthalates are considered hazardous waste and studies show when items containing phalates are ingested can release toxins that are linked to long term side effects such as horomone malfunctioning and reproductive Phthalates are now banned from products that may come in contact with children under the age of 12 as they can cause.

Why are Momma Couture bags CPSIA compliant when the law does not mandate this?

Even though Momma Couture bags are carried by parents the interiors of the bags are intended for carrying babies/children’s belongings. Some of the bags directly carry snacks and wipes in them which ultimately go into our kids mouths and in the case of wipes are used for tushies, faces, hands and more. Because high levels of lead and phtalates are harmful to our kids and can get on the contents within the bag we have decided to take the extra measure of making our bags CPSIA compliant for the sole purpose of keeping kids safe.

How long do the insulated Momma Couture bags keep items cold/warm?

All fluids and snacks are kept cool/warm for approximately 4 hours (time varies depending on external temperature)
