No, our mouthguards do not contain any harmful materials. As part of the CE approval process, all of our mouthguard products (including the TEPHRA MAX™) undergo innocuous and chemical testing to ensure the materials they contain won’t hurt or negatively affect our users.
The specific standards that apply to mouthguards are:
- BS EN 1186: 2002, required for any plastics that come into contact with foodstuffs. This test is done to confirm that chemicals won’t transfer from the plastic into users’ bodies in toxic quantities.
- BS EN 71-3: 2013 measures the amount of certain elements like copper, mercury, and zinc that are scraped off solid materials when bitten, licked, or sucked.
- PAH testingdetermines whether certain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are present in a given material.
Though not required as part of the CE certification process, we can also confirm that our mouthguards contain neither Formamide nor Bisphenol A (BPA).
