Sex Toy Material
is a registered name for versions of products made from variations
of Thermal Plastic Elastomer (TPE), a mixture of polyvinyl chloride
and silicone. TPE is a polymer that has many uses, one being
sex toys. The production process to make TPE is much more ecofriendly
than making latex and rubber.
Or Toxin Warnings
Some sex toys made of Trueskin may contain phthalates. 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 Trueskin adult toy
and suspect that it may contain phthalates, we highly recommend the
use of a condom to reduce the risk of possible exposure. We suggest
referring to manufacturer or item description if concerned item may
not be free of toxins or purchasing products from companies such as
Holistic Wisdom that are committed to offering only nontoxic sex toys.
Another option is to purchase toys that are phthalate free such as
toys made of Elastomer or Silicone. This material is also very porous
therefore easily harbors bacteria and cannot be sterilized. We recommend
using a condom with adult toys made of Trueskin to protect against
possible exposure to toxins and bacteria.
Trueskin should be cleaned with mild soap and warm water or antibacterial
sex toy cleaners. 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 Trueskin items in an individual
storage/separation bag or wrapped in thin material, as the porous
surface can absorb anything it comes in contact with.
Waterbased only. Silicone or oil base lubricants will damage this
material. We also recommend using a condom with Trueskin products,
as they easily absorb germs and bacteria due to the high porosity
of the material.
