What is BPS?

Glass Baby Bottle

On this Page:


Just when we thought plastics were safe from BPA, along came its replacement, the chemically similar BPS. But what is BPS and does Cherub Baby offer BPS free products?


So what is BPS?

After health concerns associated with Bisphenol A grew in 2012, the plastics industry began to use Bisphenol S as a replacement in plastic products. However, a study by Dr. Cheryl Watson, a University of Texas Medical Branch professor in Galveston, and graduate student René Viñas published in January, concludes that BPS appears to create the same problems as BPA.

The problem: Trace amounts of chemical substances gradually leach out of the plastic into the food. These chemical traces might eventually get into the body. This can disrupt the hormone system and can affect small children and infants in particular.

Experts and studies have seen disruptions to the hormone system and brain. These disruptions can cause diabetes and heart damage as well as an increase in the risk of cancer. Our article here explores further.


How do I know if the plastic product I am buying contains BPA or BPS?

It’s important to check that the product you are purchasing has been tested for both Bisphonel A and Bisphonel S.  This is important for any storage product that you use to store food or liquids that you heat. These chemicals are known to leach when warmed.  You only find both BPA and BPS in plastic products.

Glass is 100% clean and pure with no chemicals to leach.
