Because it’s better for you and the environment. Silicone is highly durable yet lightweight, and holds up from freezer to microwave, oven, and dishwasher without leaching chemicals. Keep reading to learn more about platinum silicone, what it is, and why it matters.

Why Silicone Matters

 Silicone matters for several important reasons when it comes to choosing products for your family. Here's why: Non-Toxic and Safe: Unlike certain plastics and low-quality materials, silicone is completely toxin-free. It does not leach harmful chemicals like BPA, heavy metals, PVC, or phthalates into your blood stream. Silicone is made up of naturally occurring elements:  silicon, oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. In addition to being toxin-free, silicone is also:

  • Highly resistant to damage and degradation from extreme temperatures;
  • If cared for properly, it won’t harden, crack, peel, crumble, dry out, rot or become brittle over time;
  • Lightweight, saves space, easy to transport.

By choosing silicone, you are opting for a safe, durable, and easy-to-clean material that offers peace of mind for you and your family. Its resistance to mold, exceptional durability, and non-toxic nature make it an ideal choice for various products, including those used by food stored. When it comes to the health and well-being of your family, silicone truly matters.

What is Platinum Food-grade Silicone?

 Silicone is an odorless, colorless polymer composed mainly of silicon, which is found naturally in sand, quartz and rocks. It is flexible, resistant and withstands high temperatures. Platinum food-grade silicone is a type of silicone that uses only platinum (precious metal) instead of peroxides as a catalyzer, which increases its quality, apart from silicone’s other properties. This is the ideal material for manufacturing molds or products that will come into contact with food. By avoiding the use of peroxide, platinum food-grade silicone eliminates one potential source of toxins, resulting in a purer product for your family. Our Durbl bags are made from platinum food-grade silicone that meets FDA and   LFGB requirements for food contact and safety. Although this material may be  more costly but you can get more safe and durable bags.
