Did you know that many of our soothers are also available with a natural rubber teat? In terms of safety and quality latex is currently the only natural alternative to silicone that we can recommend.
Natural rubber, also called latex, is obtained from the latex milk of the rubber tree (hevea tree). MAM uses fresh, natural rubber from Thailand, where it is directly processed. Local production enables the fresh rubber milk to be processed quickly, eliminating long transportation routes and the associated loss of quality. Thanks to a special production process known as “leaching”, natural rubber is particularly low allergy.
Compared to silicone, latex or natural rubber is more bite-resistant and softer, darker in colour and has a slight odour and flavour of rubber. Because we offer products made from both materials, parents are free to choose according to their own preferences or baby’s liking. Whichever they choose, they can be sure that both materials are completely safe and comply with the highest health and hygiene standards.
