Sex Toys Materials

APlusAdultToys.com is dedicated to only carrying exciting new products with the latest designs, features, as well as Safe and Pure materials. As a woman owned business, we have made it our mission to carry only body safe toys that comply with strict government standards for purity.


With over 2000 different products, we felt it would be much more beneficial to present you with this page, where we define all the various materials that we carry, and their unique qualities. We also include types of lubricants compatible with each material.


Thank you for continuing to support our efforts. We hope this overview will help you to understand and recognize the many different materials that are used.


The following materials are defined in alphabetical order:

We have also included a “Toy Use Tips” section at the end of this page.


ABS Plastic

ABS – Hard plastic. Non-porous, durable, and easy-to-clean and maintain. Many toys have a hard plastic base and are covered with other velvety soft materials. All types of lubricants may be used with hard plastics but be sure to clean well around waterproof seals. ABS products are Safe and Pure* (phthalate-free).

EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate)

EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) – A polymer that is processed like other thermoplastics. It is non-porous, durable, and Safe and Pure (phthalate-free). Flexible and light weight.

Latex

Latex – A rubber-like material produced from the sap of a rubber tree. Latex contains varying degrees of allergens, so people with sensitivity should avoid using these products. Latex is Safe and Pure (phthalate-free). Best with water based lubricant or California Exotic Novelties® Universal Adult Toy Lubricant™.
