F.A.Q.
What To Do If

The bubble solution is swallowed

While non-toxic, it is best not to drink our bubble solution. If you find yourself in this situation, do not drink water or try to throw the solution up. Consult a doctor if you become ill.

The bubble solution gets in your eyes or on sensitive skin

Rinse off immediately with cool water and consult a doctor if it causes an allergic reaction or other symptoms occur.

The bubble solution is spilled on clothes or furniture

Wash off immediately with cool water. Clean furniture surfaces with a damp rag.

An unusual reaction occurs

Consult a doctor and contact Dulcop by phone (704-332-1200) or via email at safety@dulcopamerica.com.

The ball in the maze game is swallowed or placed up a nose

The ball in the maze game of our Bubble World products is considered a small part, and a choking hazard by UL standards. However, its size has been tested and certified to pass through the trachea. The material of the ball can be detected by x-ray in case it becomes lodged up a nose or placed in another orifice.

Are Dulcop’s Bubbles Safe?

We take great care to adhere to all the latest industry safety standards, and pride ourselves on going above and beyond them. Our bubble solution is non-toxic and uses top-notch ingredients. Our automated production line discards products that fail to meet our standards.

What is the Recommended Age?

We believe bubbles are for everyone – children and adults alike! While safe to have and play around infants and small toddlers, we recommend three years and older for independent play.

Do Bubbles Expire?

Our bubbles do not expire. Both the solution and the bottles are designed to withstand extreme temperatures (122°F and -22°F). Once opened, we recommend using the product in a short time span in order to get the best performance from the bubble solution. But no harm will come to you if you don’t!

What are UV-Reactive Bubbles?

UV-Reactive Bubbles, like those found in our Burst Party line, are specially formulated to glow under black lights. Black lights emit long wave ultraviolet light and not much visible light, allowing one to observe fluorescence. Not to be confused with glow-in-the-dark technology. These bubbles can be used without black lights, but will not have their purplish-blue fluorescent glow unless used with a black light.

What is the EC Type Certificate?

This is the highest level of certification achievable in Europe, and issued only by a notified body. The EC Type verifies all regulatory, technical, health, and safety standards as set by the Directive are met during the production process. To our knowledge, Dulcop is the only bubble manufacturer to receive this important certificate.

What is TUV Certification?

TÜV Rheinland Product Safety and Quality Certification marks show that our products have met applicable safety requirements and quality standards. Our production plant and products have been investigated by an accredited third party, which also carries out regular surveillance audits.

What is Kathon?

Kathon is a highly irritating preservative and powerful allergen. Even though not required by law, Dulcop does not use this harmful chemical in our products. For us, safety and concern for our customers always comes first. Unfortunately, other bubble manufacturers still use kathon to kill bacteria. Always check to make sure the bubbles you use, even if not ours, are kathon free.

What is CLP Regulation?

We manufacture soap bubbles that are already in compliance with the new Standards required by the European Commission’s CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging), in force since June 2015, which relate to eye and skin irritating substances. CLP-Regulation (EC No 1272/2008) replaces the previous rules of substances (Directive 67/548/EEC) and preparations (Directive 1999/45/EC). EC regulations are stricter than US regulations, ensuring our products are safe for our American customers.
