Bioserie uses a special proprietary blend of modified PLA (Polylactic Acid), natural additives and organic colorants. Several years of R&D on bioplastic injection moulding technology allow for the best possible product quality and finish.
Bioserie is the first brand to obtain USDA's 100% biobased certification, guaranteeing that our products do not contain any petrochemicals (ASTM 6866)
Bioserie toys contain 0% oil-based chemicals, because our raw materials are derived from plants, not oil. We also do not add any oil-based chemicals during the manufacturing process to “enhance” the performance or color of our product, because we developed our own manufacturing technology to achieve the performance level we need without resorting to any oil-based chemical “enhancers”.
Even the coloring materials we use are specially developed for biopolymers; they are based on sustainable raw materials and meet several global industry and composting standards, including EN 13432 (European Union), ASTM D6400 (USA), BPS GREENPLA (Japan) and DIN CERTCO (Germany). Furthermore, we don’t just assume those oil-based toxic chemicals are not there, our products are tested and certified by trusted third parties to be free of any oil-based chemicals.
No BPA, no PVC, no phthalates, no styrenes, no heavy metals!
These materials are well-known health offenders associated with oil-based plastics. They may be present in items we use everyday including toys, in whole or used as additives. Some of these substances can act as hormone disruptors linked to possible reproductive problems and birth defects, some are potent carcinogens that accumulate in animals and in humans, some are known neurotoxins with other negative health effects. Toxic heavy metals such as lead are sometimes found in the paints and coatings of wood and plastic toys.
Although there are plastic toys marketed as “BPA-Free”, "PVC-Free" etc, they may still contain other petrochemical components that could still be harmful to human health. Ours certainly don't. You can trust us.
Committed to quality
We keep ourselves up to date with the latest state of green research and take it into account in our materials and process choices. We regularly test our products for compliance with the latest international standards (EN71, ISO, ASTM, REACH...)
Bioserie is the first toy brand to be MADE SAFE® certified.
Bioserie is the also first toy brand to receive USDA’s 100% Biobased Certification.
