Silicone vs. natural rubber
Silicone is synthetically manufactured, free from allergens and has no taste. The clear material looks hygienic and does not age. Its only disadvantage is that it is a little harder than latex and less bite-resistant. We have developed a unique silicone for our soothers: MAM SkinSoft Silicone. This is softer than other types of silicone and feels familiar to babies. Thanks to the anti-slip surface, the soother stays easily in baby’s mouth.
Proven effectiveness: market research confirms that 94%* of babies accept the MAM SkinSoft Silicone. (*Market research 2010-2018, tested with 1,383 babies)
Natural rubber, also known as latex, is a soft, bite-resistant natural product. Due to the natural ageing process of the material, the teat becomes sticky and darker with age. Since 2002, MAM has produced its own rubber in Thailand, where it grows naturally. MAM employees in Thailand process it under fair conditions.
