Good For The Bum, Good For The Planet, Remarkably Soft, Performance Obsessed, Certified Plant Based Diapers For Parents Who ❤️ 🌎
Dyper does a good job making sure that your baby is safe from really nasty ingredients you want to keep away from your little one. They also make sure that they love Mother Earth, people, are a certified B Corp and parents love the performance of the products. We do not know if they are vegan and do not have clarity on the human rights and some environmental points. So, how do they stack up against The Conscious Score? See below why they got a B.
Dyper is free from a lot of ingredients you want to keep away from your little one, they also disclose their ingredient list and is certified by OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and tested by Dermatest. Based on OEKO-TEX Standard Product Class 1, the diapers are also considered free from Phthlates, VOCs, BPAs, heavy metals and more. (When we stay free from, there are trace amounts allowed, see standards here). We know the diaper is not Totally Chlorine Free, it is Elemental Chlorine-Free Wood Pulp. Totally chlorine free (TCF) means that no chlorine or chlorine derivatives are used to make the paper. It comes from virgin (new) fiber. Elemental chlorine free (ECF) means that no chlorine was used, however other chemicals containing chlorine are used for bleaching. Chlorine bleaching of pulp and paper and other industrial processes can create small quantities of dioxins. Based on our standards and their transparency Dyper gets a A for the Ingredient Pillar of the Conscious Score.
