Glossary: DOP or DEHP (Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate [bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate)
The Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel on Phthalates and Phthalate Alternatives (CHAP) found that exposure to Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate [bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) may negatively impact human reproduction and fetal development. DEHP has been permanently banned in children’s toys and child care articles at levels greater than 0.1%.
