At EAF Products, do our best to take the hassle out of hydration. Hydration should be simple and easy, without needing a lot of babysitting of your water bottle.
We are committed to providing products that reduce chemical exposure. Many plastics contain materials that can leach into the water and mimic or block the actions of hormones that occur naturally in the body. Published scientific papers have reported that chemicals that exhibit Estrogenic Activity (EA) are the most prevalent and are particularly hazardous. While BPA is the most publicized chemical show to have EA, thousands of others are suspected to exist.
We use polypropylene as our base plastic of choice since it has been shown to be safe, EA free and also does not impart any taste to the water. Colorants can leach into the water and some have shown EA while others are untested for EA. Therefore, we either use black (carbon based) color, or uncolored. We may offer rubberized handles with other colors at some point since the handle does not make contact with the water.
