Silicone Must Haves For Kids
Silikids began in 2006 as a labor of love for two friends, and mothers. They were concerned with toxic materials in children’s products, and thus Silikids was born. A Children’s Accessory company dedicated to making safe, clean and hygienic products out of silicone.
Why Choose Silicone? Here are a few facts, and a crash course in science!
Silicone is non-toxic and hypo allergenic. It has few open pores so it doesn’t harbor or promote bacteria and fungus growth like scratched, warped plastic can.
BPA-Free Due to recent concerns regarding the chemical BPA, may parents are switching to BPA free children’s products. Silicone offers just that solution.
Safe Silicone is basically made up of silicon, a natural element present in sand, quartz, and rock, which after oxygen, is the most abundant element on earth. Silicon is transformed into silicone when combined with oxygen, carbon. Because it’s an inert material, it does not react with food or beverages or poduce any hazardous fumes. It does not transmit taste to beverages and food.
Silikids has products for children from infant bibs and baby bottles, up to a drinking glass appropriate for those 3-10 years old.
Silikids, in caring for the planet makes a very conscious effort to produce products that last, and promote reuse. Packaging is minimal, and silicone can be recycled at specific recycling centers. Send your Silikids products back to them, and they will have it recycled for you!
