Bobo&boo dinnerware is made from bamboo fibres, with small amounts of other natural grains such as bran and cornstarch. These natural fibres are mixed with a food-grade binding resin and poured into a mould. They are pressed and baked under high temperature, then polished to make them smooth.
Because the bamboo fibres are a by-product of the bamboo industry, bobo&boo also turning scraps that would otherwise go to waste into something useful. Pretty rad, huh?
I'M JUST YOUR AVERAGE MUM, NOT A SCIENTIST. WHAT THE HECK IS A 'FOOD-GRADE BINDING RESIN?'
That’s just fancy-schmancy talk for the tiny inclusion of a non-toxic, food safe melamine binder that is required to make bobo&boo products dishwasher safe. It is mixed with the natural bamboo fibres to help extend the life of your bobo&boo dinnerware and keeps it in tip-top shape.
As much as we wish their bamboo products could be made of 100% organic elements, let's be real. We're all busy mums! Making products dishwasher-safe is super important.
Bobo&boo's products find the perfect balance between practicality and organic materials. Their products are 100% non-toxic, foodsafe and comply with all standards and regulations.
WHAT ABOUT THE COLOURS? ISN'T THAT STUFF TOXIC?
Bobo&boo dinnerware is not coated or painted with anything, which means you needn’t worry about flaking, peeling, or leaching of colour.
The vibrant colours come from a minute amount of food-safe mineral pigment that is added to the bamboo fibre and mixed into the product, rather than layered or coated on top. This process ensures that your bobo&boo products last longer and remain safe, regardless of age and use.
