How do I maintain the products?

  • The silicone beads can be washed under the tap with cold or lukewarm water. Let the product air dry afterwards. It is not recommended to boil the silicone products. However, the product can be put in the freezer for a while.
  • Wooden rings or bite figures can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Keeping them under water for too long is not recommended, because this can make the wood soft.
  • For fabric products, it is recommended to wash at 30° and allow to dry naturally.

What are Silicones?

Silicone is made from the basic element silicon (pebble) and oxygen or silicon oxide. This is better known as quartz, small particles that are the main component of sand. Quartz is the most abundant mineral on earth and easy to make. It is a sustainable and natural raw material.

Carbon and hydrogen are added to quartz to form long chains of linked silica molecules. The result is silicone. It is a rubbery, unbreakable material that you only get in domestic use by cutting it. The material can withstand falling, bumping, throwing, boiling out, and can be put in the dishwasher, oven or freezer. Watch out for temperatures above 200°C.

Silicone is easily confused with plastic due to the variety of colors available. But plastic needs plasticizers to achieve the same flexibility and that is a harmful substance.

What are the benefits of silicone?

  • Silicone feels soft and smooth. It is unbreakable and can be used over and over again. This makes it a sustainable material with a long service life and therefore less waste.
  • Silicone is inert. In chemistry this means that the material is stable and under normal circumstances does not react with other substances such as food and drink. Under normal circumstances we read: between -80°C and +200°C.
  • Silicone is free of harmful substances such as BPA, plasticizers, PVC, lead or other harmful substances.
  • Silicone is non-porous, making it virtually impossible for bacteria to penetrate.
  • Cleaning is easy: you can wash it, boil it or put it in the dishwasher.
  • For extra relief during teething pain, the material can also be placed in the refrigerator or freezer.

What should I watch out for with silicone?

  • Do not bring silicone into contact with fire.
  • Do not use it with sharp objects.
  • Do not scrub hard with a rough sponge.
  • Do not use above 200°C.

What wood is used in the products?

The wood used is natural and untreated beech wood. Beech wood was chosen because this type of wood is a hardwood that cannot splinter. Wood is a sustainable material with a long lifespan.
