The Consumer Product Safety Information Act (CPSIA)
The Consumer Product Safety Information Act (CPSIA) lead content regulations regarding children’s products are as-follows:
- Current lead content limit is 300 ppm
- As of August 14, 2011, the lead content limit will become 100 ppm
CPSIA's Statement of Policy: Testing and Certification of Lead Content in Children's Products
Within the above policy is a list of products that do not need to be tested or certified because "...by their nature, they will never exceed the lead content limit..."
D7: Textiles (excluding after-treatment applications, such as screen prints, transfers, decals, or other prints) consisting of:
- Natural fibers (dyed and undyed) including but not limited to, cotton, kapok, flax, linen, jute, ramie, hemp, kenaf, bamboo, coir, sisal, silk, wool (sheep), alpaca, llama, goat (mohair, cashmere), rabbit (angora), camel,horse, yak, vicuna, qiviut, guanaco;
- Manufactured fibers (dyed or undyed) including, but not limited to, rayon, azlon, lyocell, acetate, triacetate, rubber, polyester, olefin, nylon, acrylic, modacrylic, aramid, spandex;
Many of our products will not need testing or certification because our material, flowers, ribbon, and trims are made from dyed cotton, nylon, silk, and/or spandex.
Our rhinestones and our buttons are the only items we sell that need to be tested and certified. We have taken the necessary measures to ensure that our acrylic rhinestones and buttons are lead-free, and we have the certificates of compliance, if you are interested in viewing them.
ToeBlooms contain small parts. Although all flowers, buttons, and rhinestones are strongly secured, we recommend parent supervision of children who are wearing our products. All of our products come with a small parts safety note.
