ANSES recommends improving baby diaper safety

ANSES recommends improving baby diaper safety

Today, ANSES published its assessment of the risks of chemicals found in baby diapers. Based on tests conducted on disposable diapers and their use, the Agency’s assessment highlighted several chemicals for which safety threshold values were exceeded. With regard to the possible risks of these chemicals to baby health, ANSES recommends eliminating these latter or reducing their levels as much as possible in disposable diapers.
