What are IZIPIZI glasses made from?

IZIPIZI glasses are always made from carefully chosen materials! Every material is selected for a good reason. The proof?

  • For most products: frames and lenses are made from polycarbonate, a very robust, transparent material, chosen to ensure a lightweight, long-lasting and flexible product for maximum comfort.
  • For the Baby and Kids range: frames are made from TPE-E, an even more flexible material than polycarbonate, chosen to ensure they stay strong and are adapted to children’s daily lives. Guaranteed to be free of harmful chemical products like Bisphenol A, our frames are manufactured according to the standard EN71 for children’s toys and accessories. Good news for parents, who know all too well how much young kids love putting things in their mouths!

Did you know? We talk about glasses, but, despite what you might think, glasses are rarely made from glass, they are normally actually made from... polycarbonate. This is why most spectacle manufacturers offer polycarbonate lenses. At IZIPIZI, both our frames and lenses are made from polycarbonate, which makes sourcing more efficient, whilst ensuring identical optical properties.

Eyewear made with a biobased material:

To take our eco-responsible approach a step further, we have been working since the end of 2018 on models made of biobased materials that offer the same benefits, while remaining accessible. Our desire is to reduce our carbon footprint and limit the use of non-renewable resources as much as possible.
In 2021, we will launch our first glasses with a biosourced frame, the SLIM by IZIPIZI Studio. This frame is 45% derived from an element found in nature: castor oil.
