AT CHEWBEADS, IT'S A FAMILY AFFAIR.
THE IDEA BEGAN IN 2009 AFTER OUR SON BENJAMIN WAS BORN. LIKE MOST BABIES, HE LOVED
TO PUT EVERYTHING IN HIS MOUTH AND MY NECKLACES WERE A FAVORITE. LIKE MOST
MOMS I DIDN'T FEEL COMFORTABLE LETTING HIM CHEW ON THEM, WITH THE CONCERN THEY MIGHT BREAK
OR HAVE UNWANTED CHEMICALS. AS A VETERAN OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY I HAD AN AMAZING COLLECTION
OF NECKLACES AND BRACELETS AND WITH THOSE AS MY INSPIRATION I SET OUT TO CREATE SOFT, NON-TOXIC
JEWELRY THAT WAS COLORFUL, CHIC, AND ABOVE ALL ELSE SAFE. HENCE, CHEWBEADS!
AS OUR FAMILY HAS GROWN WE'VE BEEN INSPIRED BY TO CREATE SAFE, NON-TOXIC TEETHERS AND
TOYS THAT BABIES AND PARENTS CAN ENjOY AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT.

Why are chewbeads safe for babies? Chewbeads are sent to an independent US material testing lab to ensure that they
meet or exceed all current and upcoming standards of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (www.cpsc.gov).
The tests prove that both the materials and the design of the product are completely safe for your baby while under adult
supervision. Chewbeads are intended to be worn as adult jewelry and should not be left with children or babies alone.
Adult supervision is required.
Are Juniorbeads suitable for children with sensory needs? Juniorbeads are made with the same non-toxic material as Chewbeads. As always there is no BPA, no phthalates, no lead, or cadmium and therefore are safe for anyone to put in their mouths. With that being said, Juniorbeads can be used to soothe children with sensory needs. However, due to the spectrum of needs, we cannot confirm that Juniorbeads are suitable for all children with sensory needs. Please use under adult supervision and use your discretion with your child. Please remember clasps are not chewable and if chewed will cause necklaces to lose functionality. In addition, aggressive chewing can cause beads to rip or tear - please inspect before each use and discard if damaged.
What are the benefits of using silicone? A primary reason is reliability. Silicone rubber components have a useful life that
is far superior under conditions that would cause the deterioration of many parts made of typical organic materials. Silicone
rubber retains a far higher tensile strength, and tear resistance than do many organic rubbers, perfect for emerging teeth!
It is odorless and tasteless. It is very stable it does not cause staining. Most importantly, silicone rubber will not support the
growth of fungus, mold or bacteria! To clean simply wash with a mild soap and water.
