Aldehyde has long been defined as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization. According to relevant experts, when the formaldehyde content of textiles exceeds the standard, part of the formaldehyde will be released during use or wear, which will cause harm to the human body.
For plush toys, its fabrics are textiles; some unscrupulous manufacturers will choose non-environmental, low-quality fabrics to produce plush toys because of cost factors. In this case, it will cause certain harm to the human body.
Plush toys are not only the favorite friends of many children, but also the companions of many adults. Children’s body resistance is low. Even adults, long-term absorption of harmful formaldehyde is also harmful. Therefore, excessive formaldehyde must not be allowed.
Formaldehyde in textiles is generally added non-subjectively, but fabric factories will add some “auxiliaries” during the production process, such as softeners, fixing agents, adhesives, etc., which contain formaldehyde. If these additives are not added, the effect of textile fabrics will be poor, and shrinkage will occur. In general, as long as these additives meet the added amount and can control the amount of formaldehyde, they will not have a great impact on the fabric.
However, in order to control the cost, the fabric factory will add a large amount, so that the effect of the textile will be very good, its shrinkage rate will be controlled, and the same cost can produce more fabrics. If such fabrics are used to produce toys, the formaldehyde content of the toys will not meet the standard.
Excessive formaldehyde will have a certain impact on the human respiratory tract, causing coughing, tearing, and allergies. If long-term contact with plush toys with excessive formaldehyde, it may even cause cancer, which is very terrible!
So when you choose a plush toy factory, you must keep your eyes open, choose those formal factories, and put an end to “three-five” products.
