QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q. Does Sophie La Girafe items containt BPA or Phtalates?

Q. How is Sophie La Girafe made?A. Sophie la girafe® is a handmade product that requires more than 14 individual manual operations to create it. Our manufacturing process video, which shows the entire, step-by-step process can be found on YouTube
Sophie la girafe® is made with 100% natural rubber in plaster moulds. The French term “rotomoulage” is a step in the process when the plaster absorbs the natural rubber’s humidity, allowing Sophie la girafe® to take shape when solidifying. Plaster is natural, inert and harmless matter that dissolves itself in water. This little rod of plaster that you found in your Sophie la girafe® is certainly due to a problem that occurred during the removal from the plaster mould, but it does not put your child in danger.
Q. How do I care for my Sophie La Girafe
A. The best way to clean your Sophie la girafe® and ensure the functionality of the whistle is with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in water.
Q. Why is my Sophie La Girafe 'fading' in color?
A. The paint used for Sophie la girafe® is composed of 100% natural rubber, which is the same used for the manufacturing of Sophie la girafe® and her natural pigments. Each product may vary in color, especially the shades of brown.
This is an alimentary painting method and the quantity used is at the minimum level, so it is possible that when a baby first uses Sophie la girafe®, Sophie’s paint can be diluted. This is natural and there is no danger linked to this.This does not affect the quality of Sophie la girafe®. Sophie is still in compliance with all European and worldwide standards and does not put your child in danger. The solution is to clean the surface of Sophie la girafe® with soapy water and a damp cloth in order to eliminate the surplus paint before giving Sophie back to your baby.
Q. What if my child is allergic to rubber?
A. Sophie la girafe® has been made for more than fifty years and we have never been contacted to report a case of any allergies to the rubber. In addition, we also know that the allergenic protein inside Sophie la girafe®’s latex would be eliminated by our fabrication process.
However, as precautionary principle, we advise you not to use Sophie la girafe® if you know that your child is allergic to rubber.
Q. How can I check for authenticity?
A. The best proof of authenticity for your Sophie la girafe® is the ‘certificate of authenticity’ that is sold with each Sophie la girafe® as well as the custom brand seal on the packaging.
