 Why is silicone used in baby products? 

Food grade silicone is Non hazardous, odorless and Non- toxic in nature. This simply means that it does not contain BPA, latex, lead and other harmful byproducts which, by the way, should be nowhere near your baby’s mouth. 

It is highly resistant to high temperature which entails that it does not harden, crack, peel, crumble, dry out, rot, or become brittle overtime. Its lightweight quality makes it travel friendly. 

How is Silicone better than Plastic? 

Lets compare Silicone with plastic for better understanding 

It’s no secret that plastic ending up in water bodies and landfills is a global issue. Not only plastic causes serious health problems like cancer, infertility and immune disorders, it contains one of the most notorious chemicals called BPA or Bisphenol A. 

BPA tends to mimic body hormones which influences bodily processes including growth, cell repair, fetal development, energy levels and reproduction. 

Imagine the sheer horror of this substance present in baby products like Teethers and Snack cups! 

A container made of plastic and BPA may not be completely sealed and it may mix with the food. Note this that Plastic has already been restricted in the EU, Canada, China, and Malaysia especially for baby products.

“You Constantly mention ‘food grade silicone’ , what is that about?” 

Is Silicone safe to be used in baby products?
