Question

Why are all nipples and pacifiers made of Silicone and not Latex?

Answer

The advantages of Silicone compared to Latex:

  • Highly transparent, for a natural and hygienic aspect;
  • Suitable for latex allergic people;
  • Silicone rubber is more durable than latex rubber;
  • Sturdy - hard for baby to bite through;
  • Tasteless and odourless, makes easier breast feeding compatibility. Latex smells and tastes of rubber, and can cause the baby to reject mom's breast;
  • Can be sterilised using boiling water, steam or cold water method;
  • Microwave resistant, and dishwasher-proof.
