Recently, there has been a surge of silicone molds appearing on ebay and direct shipping from China. These may look identical to many of the moulds we sell (infact - they are also copying and selling our own registered design products) - but there is a big safety implication.
It's NOT the fact that they are making moulds in China, it's the fact that some of these Chinese EBay sellers are trading in moulds where they have mixed cheap bulking agents into the product to lower their prices. These bulking agents carry serious health risks !
We have every production batch of moulds we have manufactured lab tested to PROVE that they are 100% silicone compound. Many of these Chinese sellers are mixing the silicone with dangerous compounds which contain PAA (poly aromatic amines) and formaldehyde. These chemicals are PROVEN to leach into food stuffs and cause cancer.
Most of them will tell you they have certification - but a one off report from a few years ago means nothing.
The moulds we sell meet all required certification BUT we also have every production batch specifically tested to prove they are 100% silicone and free of PAA and formaldehyde !
We recently confiscated some un-licensed copies of our silicone buttons moulds from another company and they were found to contain prohibited compounds.
Stay safe ! BUY FROM TRUSTED UK EBAY SELLERS like NATURALHEATING and steer clear of the dirt cheap copies shipped from China on Ebay.
