Phthalate’s and sex toys – why are they so bad for you?


Many people aren’t aware of Phthalate’s and how dangerous they are for us.

Phthalate’s are a chemical softener.  They are added to plastic to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability and longevity and hence have been a popular ingredient in the adult toy market.

They were also common in the production of children’s toys until research proved the chemicals are very harmful to the body.  They have been linked to cause tumors, cancers and infertility in men.

Thankfully they are now banned from children’s toys globally but they still remain in some adult toys – more commonly in the older plastic sex toys seen on the market.  The sex toy industry still isn’t being regulated properly so it’s up to you to ensure you’re looking at the material the product is made from – always look for Phthalate free, body safe silicones.

This has encouraged a new revolution to the adult toy industry with many manufacturers now developing adult toys which are not harmful to the human body.

ButterflyB provides only phthalate free products and would recommend anyone take serious note from ever using an old sex toy without fully understanding what it’s made from. If you think it’s time for an upgrade then check out our current range of products FOR HER, FOR HIM and FOR THEM – we’ve got something for everyone.
