Ever wondered what’s in your brands?

There are many products we know by brand name alone. Here at Behind The Label we aim to uncover the generic product names, ingredients lists, and facsimiles (knock offs) of every popular brand, from baby medicines to fizzy drinks! So whether you want a cheap alternative or just to know about your favourite brands, bookmark us for posterity.



Popular brand names:

  • Britax
  • Joie
  • Maxi-Cosi

Generic name: i-Size car seat.

Can you make it? No.


As long as the components are 100% plant or plastic based.



Ethical concerns?

Make sure your manufacturer uses factories that work ethically. There is currently no car seat with ethical certification, for example FairTrade.

Health concerns?

Some i-Size car seats have failed the Which? testing. The Nuna Rebl i-Size failed their tests and was rated a “Do Not Buy”. Don’t assume that i-Size certification guarantees safety, and always check with other assessors, like Which?

Alternative brands:

  • Jane
  • Concord
  • Cosatto
  • Cybex
  • Ferrari
  • Ladybird
  • Nania
  • Recaro

Are there store brands?

Yes, many baby stores such as BabiesRUs or Mothercare have their own brands.
