Or Toxin Warnings
Rubber can contain phthalates, however
it depends on the type of rubber. Phthalates are a family of chemicals
that are used to soften rubbers and plastics. There is a growing body
of evidence that shows phthalates pose a health risk and can have
a toxic effect. If you own a rubber adult toy, and suspect that it
may contain phthalates, we highly recommend the use of a condom to
reduce the risk of possible exposure. Another option is to purchase
toys that are phthalate free such as toys made of Elastomer or Silicone.
It is also important to note that rubber can contain latex which is
an allergen for some people. For individuals with a sensitivity or
allergy to latex we recommend adult toys made of 100% Medical Grade
Clean your rubber adult toy with mild soap and warm water or an antibacterial
sex toy cleaner. Rubber is porous, therefore it can harbor bacteria
and cannot be sterilized. It is recommended that you use a condom
with rubber adult toys.
