What is TPE material?
Thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) are a mixture of vinyl chloride (PVC) and silicone. This soft and flexible elastomeric material reproduces the feeling of human skin. It is recyclable and heatable.

TPE is waterproof, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly (phthalate free).

It is a porous material that can not be sterilized and is therefore recommended to clean and dry after each use. We recommend sprinkling with baby powder to look like velvet skin.
Only use water based lubricants. Lubricants based on oil or silicone may damage TPE.

Note: The porous property of TPE is susceptible to bacterial development; sharing your doll without using a condom is risky.

What are the differences between TPE and silicone?
TPE is less solid than silicone and also brittle. On the other hand, it is known to resist longer in time than silicone, which tends to worsen over time.

TPE is the closest reproduction of human skin. It is softer, more flexible, but cooler than silicone.
