Toy Care and Safety
How safe is silicone?
It's widely considered one of the safest materials in the sex toy industry. It's phthalate free, hypoallergenic, heat resistant, and latex free, so it can be used by people with latex allergies.
While it’s generally classified as a non-porous material, if you look close enough, technically it isn't so. However, it is non-porous enough that bacteria, yeast, or other nasties can’t cling on to it - but it can retain volatile organic compounds, or in sensible terms, odours.
If you find your toy has a slightly chemical smell when you open the sealed bag it comes in, it's the remaining odour of the mold releasing agent we use. While we meticulously wash, boil, and air out every toy we make in order to make sure all the release agent is cleaned off and the toys are sanitised properly, sometimes some odours can be left behind - and if there are any odours whatsoever left in the microscopic pores of the silicone when the toys are put in our airtight bags, those odours are going to stay there. It should be noted that the toy will still be completely safe to use - it just has a funny smell that will air out in time.
It should also be added that some odours stick better than others. If, for example, you've cleaned your toy with a scented soap, it may pick up a great deal of that aroma. If you want that or don’t mind the smell, great. However, if you want to get rid of that lovely milk and honey fragrance - other scents are available - do not enclose your toy in an airtight container of any sort. Here’s what you should do instead:
We recommend washing your toy several times with an unscented soap and boiling it in water for 30 minutes, letting it air out for a couple of days.
What about the colours and pigments?
All the colours we use are considered either skin safe or cosmetic grade for use around the lip and eye areas. Liquid pigments mix in the silicone and become part of the cured product while powdered colour - or mica - is suspended within the silicone.
All the mica powder we use is carefully selected to fulfil our quality standards. It is a 100% natural product, the granule size is optimized to achieve perfect suspension, it's ethically sourced, vegan, and not tested on animals.
