Or Toxin Warnings
PleasureSkin products may contain phthalates. Phthalates
are chemicals used to soften plastics that has been shown to be linked
to several environmental and individual health issues. If you are
considering purchasing a PleasureSkin 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.
PleasureSkin should be cleaned with mild soap and warm water or antibacterial
sex toy cleaners. PleasureSkin is a porous material, therefore it
can easily harbor bacteria, germs and dirt and cannot be sterilized.
We recommend using a condom with sex toys made from PleasureSkin.
Once dry, sprinkle with the included "renewing" powder or cornstarch.
Never use talcum powder or baby powder, as these can cause irritation
and sometimes larger problems for women. Corn starch and a soft cloth
may also be used to bring the toy back to life. (Talcum powder has
been implicated as a possible cause of ovarian cancer.) We highly
recommend storing PleasureSkin items in a separate storage/separation
bag or wrapped in thin material, as the porous surface can absorb
anything it comes in contact with. It is also recommended that you
store PleasureSkin sex toys in a cool, dark place.
Waterbased only. Silicone or oil base lubricants will damage this
material. We also recommend using a condom with PleasureSkin sex toys,
as they easily absorb germs and bacteria due to the high porosity
of the material.
The production process to make TPE is much more eco-friendly than
making latex and rubber.
