Why Natural Rubber Teethers?
Natural rubber is soft, flexible and pleasant to chomp on. Babies gravitate towards the skin-like texture of natural rubber and its light natural scent. It gives us great peace of mind that natural rubber is non-toxic, 100% plastic-free and produced without any petroleum byproducts. It is also free of lead, BPA, Phthalates and other dangerous chemicals.
Tikiri uses natural rubber from Hevea Brasiliensis trees sustainably grown at small certified organic plantations in Sri Lanka, where their teethers are produced. This cuts down on transportation and CO2 emissions of their main raw material. Rubber sap is extracted the traditional way by hand-tapping which does not harm the tree. No chemical stabilizers, preservatives or anti-fungal agents are added to the rubber ensuring that Tikiri toys are as pure and natural as can be. The teethers are hand-painted with food-safe vegetable paints.
