All About Silicone

What is Silicone?

To throw a bit of science at you, silicone is an inert, rubber-like material, that is safe, durable and flexible. Silicone is created from oxygen and bonded silicon, a very common natural element found in sand and rock. Bumkins only uses 100% food grade silicone in our products, without any fillers. Our products are always tested by third-party labs and meet or exceed all US safety standards as established in the CPSIA and FDA.
