Icon Brands - trustworthy or not?

veggieguy veggieguy
I e-mailed Icon Brands because I wanted to know if some of their dildos use phthalates or not. I saw that they also manufacture the Falcon dildos. Now I had already written to Falcon a couple of weeks ago and they confirmed that their dildos contain a small portion of phthalates. I was grateful that they were at least being honest, even though this meant for me I would not buy any Falcon dildos.

So, when I e-mailed Icon Brands I asked about various dildos including the Falcon series. The reply was none of their dildos uses phthalates, which obviously is not true since Falcon already confirmed that their dildos do contain phthalates.

Now I wonder is this company trustworthy?
Given the scandal that Doc Johnson also claimed their James Deen dildo to be phthalate-free and the website Dildology found out in test results that the dildos *do* include phthalates.

What do you think about this all?

PS: I don't want to come off as being too hysterical but I believe with the variety of products on the market, I'd rather invest my money into a *safe* dildo instead of one that could make me sick or could cause cancer.

If you are at all concerned, the best advice would be to use a condom with your toys.

Yes, I know that would be a good solution. I don't like condoms on my dildos though. So I'd rather shop for the right products.

Icon Brands has replied that their initial e-mail was wrong and that their dildos do contain a small portion of phthalates, including the Flash Brown dildo which is listed as phthalates free on many websites (including Amazon *and* EdenFantasys).
I feel like a fool b/c I ordered the Flash Brown cock this morning, thinking that if their website states it is phthalates-free then it really is. Now the info is taken off their website and I am stuck with the dildo I do not want to use.

You can always use a condom with it! I know it's a bit of a pain, but there are some amazing condoms out there that might make it feel great.

Well as I said, I really don't like condoms on my dildos.
But thanks for the suggestion.
