our first priority was safety
It has been shown that repeated use of single use disposable bottles can leach harmful DEHP into the water.DEHP has been shown to be a carcinogen.
It has also been shown that even repeated use of non disposable bottles such as hiking and camping bottles and other reusable bottles can leach harmful BPA (Bisphenol A) into your water.BPA is a harmful chemical that can cause birth defects and other defects and is now banned in most developed countries.
Our bottles are completely DEHP free and BPA free. They are made for repeated use. They have undergone repeated certification and testing by reputable independent third parties.
The Aquaskin is made of the best food grade materials available of 3 laters of polypropylene and PET. Parts of the bottle are fully recyclable.
The Aquaskin is protected by trade mark and design registration laws in Australia and other territories. For licensing opportunities please contact us.
Aquaskin was started by a group of dedicated designers and business people who believe in sustainability through the creation of unique products. We believe the Aquaskin delivers that kind of uniqueness to the market in a way that is sustainable.
After looking at the amount of bottles that are thrown away each year, we believed that people could shift their habits from buying and throwing away bottles by buying and Aquaskin and refilling it with clean tap water and water from dispensers and purifiers, which many work places and homes now have. You could even buy larger bottle of water and refill your Aquaskin with those.
By developing and marketing the Aquaskin, we hope to generate a cultural shift away from single use bottles to re-usable bottles and by doing so, helping the planet.
