Sex Toy Material
Not to be confused with Silicon, which is a completely different substance:
metalloid chemical.

Silicones are polymers that contain silicon with carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and sometimes other chemical elements. It is flexible, heat-resistant, nonstick, non-porous and rubber-like without containing any toxins. Silicone sex toys require little maintenance and can last a lifetime.

The fact that silicone is the preferred material of most sex toy consumers, many sex toy manufacturers have found a way to misrepresent their products as silicone even if the silicone is a minimal part of the whole. The issue is that by law, a sex toy needs to contain only 10% silicone in order to be labeled as a silicone sex toy. The other 90% of the sex toy can be made of less expensive materials that could potentially contain toxins, such as phthalates.

If you are considering purchasing a silicone sex toy, we recommend checking with the manufacturer on whether or not the product is free of phthalates or purchasing from a store such as Holistic Wisdom, Inc. that is committed to offering only nontoxic sexual products. Manufacturers such as Tantus, Fun Factory and Vibratex offer only high quality, 100% silicone sex toys that are guaranteed to be nontoxic. See our Silicone Sex Toys

Silicone is used to make many high quality adult toys. Medical Grade Silicone is the most reliable, safe, health-smart, soft material used for sex toys. It is also used for some personal lubricants. Some other popular uses of silicone range from hair products and cookware to breast implants and electronic components.

Allergy Or Toxin Warnings
100% Silicone is phthalate free. Silicone blends may contain toxic additives. Silicone is hygienic as there are no open pores to harbor bacteria. Silicone is also hypoallergenic and has no reaction to the human body; 100% silicone sex toys are completely inert. They don't alter pH balance, or cause a reaction to the body's natural chemistry.

Cleaning Recommendations
Silicone is one of the easiest materials to clean due to it's nonporous, smooth surface. Silicone can be boiled or cleaned with a 10% bleach solution; they're even dishwasher safe if vibrating unit is removable. We recommend antibacterial soap or antibacterial sex toy cleaner. Our 100% medical grade sex toys are completely safe up to 600° F. Please note that it must be 100% silicone in order for it to be boiled, bleached, etc. If it is not then sterilizing the sex toy with these cleaning methods may damage the product.

Waterbased only. Silicone or oil base lubricants may damage this material. The reason to not use silicone lubricants on silicone sex toys, is that a silicone lubricant may bond to the toy and ruin it. This isn't true for ALL silicone sex toys as it depends on the purity of the silicone sex toy and the purity of the lubricant. If you wish to test your silicone sex toy with silicone lubricant, use the bottom of the base and do a test spot. If the area does not become sticky or gummy, then the silicone lubricant should be compatible.

Recycling Information
Silicone is a chemically inert substance. This means that there are no toxic ingredients that can be out gassed, or leached from the substance. Silicone, itself, is not toxic to aquatic plants or animals nor does it have a negative effect on soil organisms. Although Silicone is not biodegradable, it can be recycled.
