Why Tantus Silicone?
Why Tantus when choosing your soon to be favorite playmate?
Let us start with science and what makes this material so safe for your body. Silicone is a polymeric elastomer, a chain of molecules made of silicon and oxygen. Silicone then combined with silica and other materials that strengthen the final product into a stretchable, tear-resistant solid. All silicone products are technically blended since pure silicon crumbles and has no durability. Therefore silicon must be reinforced with additions to give it strength and stability.
Let’s talk additives and how safe these additives are.
Tantus uses only non-toxic pigments that do not affect the quality of the products. Pigments are an additive that can add color to the toy but can lower the quality and durability of a product. Adding a low-grade pigment can also increase toxicity. Tantus uses only non-toxic dyes that do not affect the quality of the product.
Dimethicone is a filler used by some products and one of the cheapest liners around.
Prolonged exposure to this filler can increase skin irritation due to the coating property. This type of filler is listed as a possible skin and eye irritant. Therefore, those with sensitive or reactive skin are at risk of an allergic reaction to dimethicone.
Tantus has created its unique formula of 100% Ultra-Premium Silicone, using just enough additives to maintain quality and durability. Because of Tantus’ high quality, it is incredibly safe and pleasurable. Because of the high-quality material used for Tantus toys, the toys mix well with a high-quality silicone lubricant.
Let’s talk about porosity!
All silicone is technically porous. However, high-quality silicone, like Tantus, has deficient surface energy. As a result, it is hydrophobic and naturally bacteria resistant. Note: The harder the toy, the less porous the material.
