Chemicals in everyday life – could they be dangerous?

Taking care of and being responsible for children is a source of incredible joy, but also of fear and anxiety. It is not always easy to know who you should listen to or how to assess all advice and discoveries. But knowledge makes it easier to make deliberate, safe choices. On this website you will find information and advice on how children can be protected so they aren’t exposed to chemicals unnecessarily. We hope this site can help you and provide you with some solid suggestions you can use to protect children.

This information is summarised by the Swedish Chemicals Agency, working on behalf of the government to protect children from harmful chemicals. We work in many different ways, including by influencing legislation and controlling companies selling products and articles on the Swedish market.
