Not All Silicone Is Created Equal.silicone-pinch-test-for-fillers

All otterlove silicone products are made using only Platinum Pure™ silicone – a much higher quality and more durable silicone. Our Platinum Pure™ silicone is just that – Pure European LFGB and FDA certified silicone with no fillers, BPA, PVC, Phthalates, BPS, Lead, Cadmium, or any other nasty chemicals. Our highly controlled process with platinum curing ensures our exacting standards are met: the cleanest, safest, and purest non-toxic silicone baby products for you and your family.

Our silicone bibs, spoons, cups, bowls, plates, and baby food freezer trays are designed to make mealtimes fun and carefree. We use only the highest quality silicone in all of our baby products so you can rest assured that your little one is not exposed to any dangerous toxins. All products are BPA free and free from other nasty toxins



European LFGB Standards

Our silicone bibs and silicone baby food freezer trays are made with 100% Premium LFGB European grade food, safe non-toxic silicone. Most competing brands follow less strict FDA standards, which allows for use of fillers, including formaldehyde! One way to test for fillers in silicone is the pinch test. Pinch, stretch, and twist the silicone – if it turns white it has fillers. Our silicone bibs will pass the pinch test because they contain only 100% pure silicone. LFGB silicone is much more costly than FDA because LFGB doesn’t allow ANY fillers.

Platinum Curing

Our competitors also use a less complex and cheaper curing process on their baby products, which leaves chemical residues in the silicone, including acid byproducts and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). These chemical residues can off-gas and leach into food and onto skin, especially as the silicone breaks down with use. Unlike most silicone bibs and baby food trays, ours follow a platinum curing process – a much more complex (and more costly) method than the common silicone available throughout the market. Our process results in no chemical by-products and a silicone that is much more durable than common silicone.

Our silicone bibs are platinum cured, which is a more expensive and complex process but creates absolutely no chemical byproducts in our baby products. Our silicone bibs have no BPA, BPS, PVC, Phthalates, Lead, Cadmium, or other nasty toxins and are also completely odorless and hypoallergenic.
