Tommee Tippee understands the importance of providing safe, durable and reliable baby bottles and cups, and we have been working with our suppliers and manufacturers over the past two years to phase out PC bottles and develop an entirely BPA free range across our bottles and cups range by January 2012.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used to make a hard plastic called polycarbonate (PC), most commonly used in products such as bottles and reusable food containers including water bottles.
Dr Anna Cicognani, Tommee Tippee CEO says; 'Tommee Tippee is committed to using a new softer 'polypropylene' material for bottles and cups to give parents the total reassurance they'd expect from Australia's leading brand. We want the best for our children and their health, always.'
For further peace of mind, when buying Tommee Tippee bottles and cups, look for the BPA free symbol, which is clearly marked on our packaging and the PP (Polypropylene) stamp at the base of our bottles and cups.
For generations Tommee Tippee products have been loved by babies and recommended by mums and dads. For Tommee Tippee, the health and safety of your baby is paramount and we know how important it is for you to be confident that you are purchasing products of the utmost quality and made to the strictest of standards - especially when it comes to the use of BPA.

Polycarbonate Bottles and BPA
Tommee Tippee is aware of the recent reports locally and worldwide regarding concerns over Polycarbonate (PC) and an ingredient called Bisphenol A (BPA).
What is Bisphenol A?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used to make a hard plastic called polycarbonate (PC). PC is used in the manufacture of varying consumer products such as baby bottles, reusable food containers including water bottles, medical devices and sport safety equipment.
Why is Polycarbonate (PC) used?
The widespread use of PC is due to the exceptional combination of properties that the material gives, including safety, toughness, durability, lightweight, clarity, and suitability to all common household methods of sterilisation. It also acts as a barrier to bacterial contamination and is shatterproof. PC is used for the vast majority of the world's feeding bottles, and has been for over 40 years.
What is the Government's Stance on BPA?
The government has asked for a voluntary phasing out of BPA bottles. This is NOT a ban or recall. The government quotes the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) evaluation that concludes the “level of intake of BPA or plasticisers are very low and do not pose a risk to babies health”. However, the Australian government appreciates that there has been a level of public concern relating to BPA in baby bottles, and as such, has worked with major retailers to introduce the phase out.
A voluntary phasing out of BPA bottles by major retailers – Coles, Kmart, Target, Woolworths, Big W and Aldi from July 1, 2010.
Tommee Tippee position on PC bottles
Our main focus at Tommee Tippee is to ensure that all products meet the relevant international regulatory industry guidelines and safety standards. Your child’s safety and good health is of paramount importance to us.
Recognising the importance of providing safe, durable and reliable baby bottles Tommee Tippee has been working for some time on the phase out of PC bottles. The majority of our product range includes products that are BPA free such as the ‘Closer to Nature’ range.
