BPFBPF, also known as bisphenol F has become increasingly common as a chemical used to make products more flexible following the widespread bans on the use of BPA due to its hormone disruption properties. In some cases, BPS is used where the legal prohibition on BPA allows products containing BPF to be labelled “BPA free”. Multiple findings confirm that BPF is an endocrine disruptor, making it another bad choice and a product that should be avoided.

BPF can be found in receipts, tickets, mailing envelopes, airplane boarding passes, and airplane luggage tags.  A very high concentrations of BPF were detected in thermal receipt samples.

Don’t handle unnecessary receipts, simply scan by using your phone or pay online and decrease your exposure
