Benefits of silicone rubber for Sex Toys
With the increasing consciousness for the use of eco-friendly materials, silicone rubber has become important in the manufacturing of many products, this is even more ideal for sex toys and baby toys.
Generally, toys made of 100% pure silicone are considered body safe and are non-toxic, it is stable and does not release any extractables even at high temperature. There are various grades to determine the quality of silicone rubber, Body-safe grade/ Food grade, follow by medical-grade to sensitive medical equipments, and implant grade at the highest level.
Silicone matte surfaces have non-stick properties. They are stain-resistant, anti-slip and anti-dust. This makes cleaning easy. It is lab proven that pure silicone material is non-porous, it can be completely sterilized as it is non-porous (or do not have micro-pores that harbors bacteria) This makes it the most superior material to be used for Sex Toys.
Silicone rubber is soft but maybe stiffer than TPR (Thermal Plastic Rubber) and relatively lightweight
Do not melt easily, Silicone is heat resistant up to 430°F / 220°C
Durable with high tensile strength that allows toys to recover from both stretching and crushing with no damage.
Full silicone rubber is usually odorless.
Cleaning your Silicone TOY?

It is important to note although silicone rubber is stable, it cannot be used with silicone-based lubricant. It will deform when it comes into contact with silicone-based lubricant and may cause it to fuse together. Usually, only water-based lubricant is recommended!
