With so much choice in infants' and childrens' products, you'd think it'd be easier to find those that are truly safe for little ones. What claims to be safe is often questionable. We go above and beyond to create the safest, most kid-friendly frames. There's no doubt that Paxley eyewear is designed with safety-conscious features and materials that provide maximum protection, and our eyewear proudly sports certification from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in the United States and the CE certification from the European Union.
High Quality Frames
Quality begins with materials. Paxleys are handcrafted in Italy out of state-of-the-art baby-safe materials that comply with worldwide regulations for BPA (bisphenol-A), lead and other materials. Paxleys are lightweight yet durable and hypoallergenic, making them gentle on infants' and childrens' delicate faces.
Ultra Protective Lenses
Prolonged and unprotected sun exposure can lead to serious UV damage not just into adulthood, but at a young age. That's why it's so important to wear high quality sunglasses with 100% UV protection. Paxleys feature impact and shatter-resistant lenses that provide 100% UVA and UVB protection at the UV400 level. We've taken great measures to ensure Paxleys meet the US safety standard ANSI Z80.3-2009, the British and European safety standard label BS EN 1836:2005/A1:2007, and also the strictest of them all: the Australian standard AS/NZ 1067:2003. In addition, our lenses are classified as Category 3, which provides a higher level of UV and sun glare protection. Our lenses are also gray, which offers the least color distortion for young eye development.
Each frame is designed with a unique, patent-pending SafeBend that won’t pinch small hands or catch on clothing. This hinge has a flex ratio of nearly 180 degrees to provide comfortable tension against the head and are resistant against snapping when pulled apart.
Ergonomic Rubber Nosepads
Extended pads that gently rest on flatter, growing bridges without the frames overwhelming or pressing on the nose and cheeks.
Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Certification
Paxleys are certified by the CPSC for compliance with the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvements Act 2008) for children's product safety rules.
Conforming European (CE) Safety Product Certification
Paxleys have the CE marking, certifying that the eyewear has met the European Union consumer safety, health or environmental requirements.
