Silicone products, which have become popular in recent years, can replace or even surpass plastic in many ways. Like plastic, it can be made into the desired shape and color according to the needs, and it is non-toxic, harmless, safe and hygienic. The most important thing is that the silicone material is degradable and will not pollute the environment. Because of its softness, tear resistance and strong resilience, it has advantages that plastic products cannot replace in many aspects.
Will Silicone Replace BPA-Free Plastics For Kids' Products?
I wrote an article the other day about what silicone is, and it's widely used in those places. And silicone versus plastic.new evidence has come out suggesting that the BPA substitutes in plastics may be just as, or even more, hazardous to our health. The bottom line is that for parents who want to minimize chemical exposure for their children, plastic is not a great choice. But what substitutions are truly safe? Glass and metal work well for baby bottles, but when it comes to plates, cups and mealtime travel gear, it is hard to resist the ease of shatterproof plastic. Enter a new wave of eco-entrepreneurs manufacturing baby gear from food-safe silicone.
Why Is Silicone A Safe Choice?
While not a “100% natural” material like rubber, food-grade silicone is a non-toxic polymer mostly made from silica (sand). It can withstand heating and freezing without leaching or off-gassing, hazardous chemicals – unlike plastics, which contaminate food in these environments. It is also odor- and stain-resistant, hypoallergenic, and because of it’s smooth surface, very easy to clean. For these reasons, and because it is soft life rubber and does not break, it is the perfect material for eco-friendly and non-toxic baby products in particular.
Three Companies Leading The Pack
Though I am using strictly anecdotal evidence, I would say we have entered the golden age of silicone kids products – as I come across new, and clever silicone-based designs every day. That said, here are a few of the companies that I am most impressed with this year:
Modern-Twist is a San Francisco-based company founded by Kat Nouri.
The company offers silicone baby bibs (with catch pockets) as well as both adult and kid-friendly placemats. However, my favorite product of theirs is the “munch-mate” feeding set that comes with a matching silicone cup, bowl and plate. The clever design allows the plate to double as a lid for the bowl. You can buy matching placemats to create the perfect gift set. A friend gave me one of the collections recently, and I am in love. Messy mealtime is solved!
3 Companies Leading The Silicone Kids Product Pack2. The Sili Company
When my son was younger, he loved the Plum Organic puree squeeze pouches, but I became concerned about the pouch linings and felt guilty about the fact that the pouches are not recyclable. I always liked making my own purees anyway, so the Sili Squeeze (a refillable silicone squeeze pouch) is the perfect solution. It is easy to take apart and clean and comes in infant and toddler sizes.
As for the third in my heart I choose Kangde silicone products company
This is a silicone products company established in 2003. So they have a lot of experience. Chairman Mr. He is committed to the research and innovation of silicone products. To this end, he set up a lot of professional teams, including specialized laboratory teams, design teams, quality control teams, etc. Just to do a good job of every silicone product. Make it convenient for our lives so that we can use it safely.
If you are thinking about getting into the kid product market, or are looking to invest in a new company, I would bet that silicone is the kid’s material of the future, and the future is now.
