Spectrum is devoted to ensuring that all of our toys, lubes, and personal care products are 100% body-safe. All of our toys are carefully curated and researched so that we only provide the highest quality products to you.
What makes a toy body-safe? Many sex toys on the market contain phthalates, a chemical that is used to soften plastics, and gives off a strong “plastic-y” odor. Recent research studies indicate that phthalates are linked to asthma, cancer, neurological disorders, and reproductive issues. Unfortunately, the sex toy industry isn’t as closely regulated as it ought to be, and many manufacturers still use this chemical in their products. Every product sold by Spectrum Boutique is phthalate-free.
What makes a lube body-safe? Most lubes carried by major pharmacies contain glycerin, an agent that facilitates the growth of yeast and bacteria within the vagina. While this does not directly cause an infection, many folks report sensitivities to glycerin, and ought to be avoided if you are at all prone to yeast infections. Since it is not a necessary ingredient for lube to be lubey, all of our lubes are glycerin-free. Many lubes also contain parabens, a preservative that some studies have linked to breast-cancer. For this reason, all of our lubes are paraben-free as well.
