For the production of some Käthe Kruse products it is necessary to use PVC (polyvinyl chloride, or short: vinyl).
At Käthe Kruse, we ensure that the PVC used is only produced with non-phthalate plasticizers.
Plasticizers are essential to soften and plasticize the naturally rigid PVC material, so that e. g. toys do not break while playing.
All PVC used by the Käthe Kruse company is mixed and processed with the non-phthalate plasticizer Hexamoll® DINCH by BASF.
A current eco-efficiency analysis confirmed that Hexamoll® DlNCH has the best test results among the five most important non-phthalate plasticizers on the market. That makes BASF´s Hexamoll® DINCH the product with the lowest environmental impact from production to disposal.
For details on the results and procedure of the analyses please read the following articles:
