is a compound that we use that does not contain phthalates
(pronounced thal-ates). As you may have been told, phthalates

(phthalates) used by the smell. The more you smell, the

vibrators give off. This is basically the vinyl off-gassing
the large amounts of phthalates.
adult industry is not regulated by the FDA or EPA, so there are
no standards that are currently followed. These government agencies
do regulate childrens toys and they no longer allow phthalates
in childrens toys or pacifiers. We feel that this standard needs
to be applied to personal intimate products as well, so we are

a non-toxic alternative - Elastomers.
are a completely different material. They start out soft and have
product added to make them harder. This product is then removed
by high vacuum so there are no residual hardeners. No solvents
are used in this process and there is no latex. This type of material
is ideal for manufacturing a variety of textures.
Free Toys Cost More-
true, they do cost more, however, they are worth the investment
because cheaper vibes may contain toxins, will most likely be
made with cheaper mechanical parts (making them easier to break),
and often carry a strong smell. When looking through our site,

we will be sure to mention it. If you are not sure, feel free
to contact us.
