Body Safe Earth-Friendly Toy Materials Spotlight:Borosilicate Glass

Welcome to the second installment of our series on our favorite body safe and environmentally friendly toy materials. Today we’re talking about glass.

What’s so great about glass? Well, like all of the materials we’re be talking about in this series, it’s nonporous and thus won’t harbor bacteria but glass is special in a couple of ways. Glass toys are great for temperature play (just dip them in some warm or cool water to change the sensations), they tend to be weighty and solid (the fear that glass toys will break during use is unfounded- most toys are made from borosilicate glass, like a Pyrex dish and some are a soda-lime glass- they are super strong and short of throwing them on the floor you won’t break them), they glide over the skin smoothly (seriously, there’s almost no friction!) and, frankly, glass toys tend to be gorgeous!

All of the toys featured here come from our favorite glass company Crystal Delights.
