Quality and safety
Quality materials and above all the safety standard of oogaa Home products are our highest priorities. All our products are recurrently submitted for independent testing to guarantee peace of mind for our customers.
All oogaa Home products comply with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and the FDA’s safe chemical act. They also comply with more stringent European Union compliance standards, such as those governing the use of fillers and additives in silicone.
All new baby products must be tested by a third party agency and follow the guidelines set up by each individual country that you intend to sell into. Our products have passed
All oogaa Home products, from concept to research & development to your child’s play time, are crafted lovingly from materials and designs that impact well-being in a positive and constructive way. Our top priority is to ensure that children everywhere come into contact with only the healthiest possible materials and designs.
Our third party testing agency is accredited and approved by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM F963-08), the Canadian Hazardous Products Act (CHPA) and European, British, Australian and New Zealand regulations.

Why we use silicone
All oogaa feeding range products are BPA free and tested to comply with the most stringent European safety standards.
High-quality silicone will not support the growth of fungus, mould or bacteria. It is odourless and tasteless, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and heat resistant up to 260 C (+500 F) and freezer safe to -40 C (-40 F).
Unlike cheap, mass-market plastic products, oogaa’s silicone feeding products will not corrode or deteriorate and will not leach chemicals into your baby’s growing body.
If you experience your food tasting like soap it is because your silicone has oil residue on its surface. You may also notice white areas after you wash in the dishwasher, this too is oil residue. The most common way oils stick onto silicone is from your dish soap. Try to avoid any dish soap that contains essential oils, antibacterial agents and moisturizers. All of these oils stick onto silicone material and may cause you to taste an unpleasant soap-like taste.
To remove the oil: Use a fresh lemon or lime. Rub the lemon all over the silicone and let sit for 10mins. Wash off with hot non-oil based soapy water or the bottom rack of your dishwasher. Another good cleaning product is white vinegar. For strong smells you might need to soak overnight. Remember you can always boil your oogaa products too.

Reduce, reuse, recycle
According to the Polymeric Materials Encyclopedia, “it is generally accepted… that silicone polymers have no known negative environmental impact.”
That’s why low taint, non-toxic silicone is used anywhere contact with food is required, particularly for bakeware in the kitchen.
At the end of their useful life, the same study showed that silicone products eventually break down into their base components of water, silicic acid, and carbon dioxide.
