|It began in 2006 as a labor of love for two friends and mothers. Out of growing concerns about toxic materials in children’s products, Silikids was born: a children’s accessory company dedicated to making safe, clean and hygienic products out of SILICONE. As mothers, the founders noticed that many products for babies were already made of silicone: bottle nipples, pacifiers, etc. Research confirmed that silicone was indeed a magnificent material for children due to its non-porous nature, which provided no place for bacteria to hide; its high resistance to temperatures, which makes it easy to boil and sterilize; and its soft, pliable quality, which lends itself to many uses.
In caring for the planet, Silikids makes a very conscious effort to produce products that last and promote reuse. Packaging is minimal, and silicone can be recycled at specific recycling centers. Send your Silikids products back to Silikids and they’ll have them recycled for you!
