The material specifications listed for each product are provided by that product's manufacturer as is the indicator of whether the item is phthalate free or not. This is the most authoritative information we have access to at the time an item is added to SheVibe's product catalogue. If we find through a reliable, scientific source that an item is proven to contain phthalates or that material specifications need to be updated, we will change the classification and description of that item.

The presence of phthalates is ubiquitous in our everyday lives - some people will have a reaction to them and some won't. Similar to having an allergy to latex or some other substance, you should avoid contact with these items if you have an adverse reaction. You may also use a (non-lubricated) condom with your toy for added protection. Get more information on phthalates.

Your health and well-being are very important to us here at SheVibe.com and we want you to know that we will continue to make every effort to provide you with the most accurate material information available to us.
