Our Commitment to Safety
At Skip Hop, we take safety seriously. All Skip Hop products are designed and tested according to applicable rules and regulations. In the U.S., this includes acts enforced by the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and those defined by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The most recent U.S. legislation is H.R. 4040, also known as the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), passed in August of 2008. This law addresses the amounts of lead allowable in children's products and child care articles, the amount of Phthalates allowable in children's toys and child care articles, as well as proper labeling and tracking of these items.
As per CPSIA, Skip Hop tests post-production samples of all regulated products, using certified third-party laboratories. These products are labeled with tracking information to identify the manufacturing date and location of each product.
We understand the concerns of parents regarding product safety. Since our company began selling innovative parenting products in 2005, we have invested in personnel and procedures to help ensure their safety and compliance. We will continue these efforts so that consumers can always feel safe and secure with Skip Hop products.
