New Glow in the Dark toys. Any material concerns?

namelesschaos namelesschaos
I’m about to post a review of one of Cal Exotics new glow in the dark toys (specifically the Glow Lips link ). I want to ask are there any concerns regarding the glow in the dark materials compared to non-glow in the dark toys, safety, lube compatibility, cleaning etc. I can’t see how it could make a difference but I figured there is no harm in asking.

Thanks in advance.

Manufacturers usually use a class of chemicals called phosphors to make plastics glow. They can include Strontium Aluminate and Zinc Sulfide, which are mixed into the plastic before it is molded. Alone, these two chemicals are mild irritants, but when mixed in plastics (especially something non-porous like silicone), very little actually comes in contact with skin.

So, my recommendation is, if the material that glows is non-porous, I wouldn't worry about it unless you are extremely sensitive, and by that I mean, pretty much anything causes you to break out or get yeast infections (most people don't have this problem). If the material that glows is porous, be a bit more cautious with insertion, but it still shouldn't be a problem. Perhaps use a condom if it worries you.

You can use any lubricant that is safe for the main material of the toy.

I'm loving all the glow in the dark toys!

The material is listed at PVC or TPR for most of them.

I think glow in the dark is awesome!
It can't be bad, unless you're really sensitive, or using the toy for unrealistically long periods of time

The Glow Lips are safe and pure Pure Skin/TPR. They have the feel of real, and they don't need powder to keep the life-like feel. Just soap and water or toy cleaner, and we recommend a water based lube. There are no concerns..it is phthalate free.
