Food-grade silicone is a condensation formed by the silicate inorganic polymer colloid material, the main ingredient is SiO2 · nH2O, its content in more than 98%, non-toxic and tasteless, chemical stability, in addition to the caustic alkali and hydrofluoric acid in normal and did not react with any acid salt.Infant products currently on the market related to silicone materials, pharmaceutical grade level is divided into silicone and food-grade silicone, which pharmaceutical grade silicone higher standard, are subject to the State Food and Drug Administration certification for the job.

Second: see color: rubber, latex due to impurity content and more, can not do transparent color products, while silica is colorless and transparent, to do a transparent silicone rubber products must be used silicone material
Third: smell it: rubber, latex products, strong flavor, smell the scent of pungent taste, some manufacturers in order to cover up the flavor and increase the flavor, so choose silicone raw materials will be much better.
