Tips for safe toy play:

Porous products may trap bacteria if the user does not regularly clean with soap and water before and after every use. Some PVC toys may be poisonous because they contain toxic chemicals that may leech into your body. It is recommended to use a condom with PVC toys. Some PVC has phthalates, some do not. It depends on the method the manufacturer employs to process the materials.

The most inexpensive toy material is PVC, sometimes referred to as jelly, is a plastic made more flexible and soft by the addition of plasticizers or phthalates. Some odor is usually detectable with PVC toys. At Blush, we use German made PVC that has been 3rd party tested by Intertek. This ensures material safety. Our PVC is always phthalates free. Use soap and warm water or toy cleaner to disinfect.

The best toy materials are silicone, steel and glass. All three materials are non-porous and can be boiled for sterilization.

Do not boil toys made of ABS, PVC, TPE or TPR. Do not boil toys that contain motors. Remove the mini vibe before boiling silicone toys.

If you're sensitive down there or allergic to PVC, I recommend silicone, glass or steel/aluminum toys.

The major difference between TPR and TPE is the elasticity. TPE is more elastic that TPR.
