Chemicals, Materials, and Safety RegulationsUpdated 2 months ago

The outer material of Zoe strollers is high-quality D600 (600 denier) nylon very similar to Cordura. It is naturally flame retardant so no flame retardant chemicals are added.

Our stroller materials are polyethylene (NOT polyurethane), polyester, and 600 denier nylon. Polyethylene is a food-grade, safe plastic. We test all of our products to the latest ASTM and JPMA standards using ASTM approved 3rd party laboratories. Additionally, all of our strollers are free from BPA, Pesticides, PFAS, Phthalates, PAH and Formaldehyde.

Zoe strollers...

  • Are free of flame retardants
  • Are free from polyurethane foam
  • Have a 5-point harness made of plastic
  • Do not contain phthalates
  • Use 600D coated fabric (i.e., polyester coated with polyurethane for waterproofing) for the seat and canopy
  • Use EVA plastic for the wheels and have an aluminum frame
  • Carry JPMA certification and meet ASTM safety standards

ASTM safety standards include: 

Surface Coating Limit: Carriages and strollers must not be painted with paint that contains more than 90 ppm (0.009 percent) lead.

Lead Content Limit: Carriages and strollers must not contain greater than 100 ppm (0.01 percent) of total lead content in any accessible component part.

Phthalate Content Limits: Carriages and strollers that contain plasticized parts that are designed, marketed, or intended to facilitate sleep (i.e., carriages or reclining strollers) or that have plasticized components that are designed, marketed, or intended to facilitate eating (i.e., food tray), must not contain more than 0.1 percent of the following eight specified phthalates: di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), or benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), diisononyl phthalate (DINP), diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP), di-n-pentyl phthalate (DPENP), di-n-hexyl phthalate (DHEXP), and dicyclohexyl phthalate (DCHP).

Additionally, you can purchase a snack tray to use instead of the child’s leatherette handlebar if you do not wish to use the leatherette.
