Out with PFAS. In with healthly living.

PFAS chemicals are pretty prevalent in our everyday life (more on that soon), so being here now, you've taken the first step to learning more about PFAS and how to reduce your exposure to them.

What are PFAS?

The acronym stands for per-and polyfluoroalkyul substances and are a linked chain of carbon and flourine atoms. The bond between the atoms is one of the strongest, it's also the hardest to breakdown. Meaning that once they enter our environment and our bodies, they remain there forever and may never degrade. And this is why they are often referred to as 'forever chemicals'.

A Brief History of PFAS

As early as the 1930s, scientists developed a group of chemicals called Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances, more commonly referred to as, you guessed it, PFAS. PFAS are a group of thousands of chemical compounds that make our lives more convenient. In fact, PFAS chemicals can be found throughout your home, office and even at your child's school!

They make our lives:





Found all over

PFAS can be found in many areas of the home, but are prevalent in many high-traffic areas.

(NOT SO) Fun Fact

Manufacturers add PFAS chemical compounds to things like microwave popcorn bags and baking paper because they resist high temperatures, repel oil and have non-stick properties. Not so fun for movie lovers.

Another Fact

PFAS chemical compounds can be found in your dental floss, nail varnish, and a lot of cleaning products.


PFAS were created to make our lives easier! Stain proof, water proof, grease proof. So today they are everywhere.

There are thousands of PFAS chemical compounds found in products we use daily. And whilst we are becoming more aware of some of them, like PFOS and PTFE there are so many more that just aren't talked about.

To that end, we are proud to say, that Blu. Cookware is 100% free from all PFAS chemical compounds (and not just one or two like a lot of other brands are claiming today). That includes being free from PTFE, PFOA, PFOS, GenX and every other PFAS compound. And whilst we cannot completely remove PFAS compounds from our day to day lives, we can all make a conscious choice to actively avoid them where possible, starting in the kitchen.

PFAS have been called 'forever chemicals' for a reason. They are everywhere and they won't go away.
