This toy is made of vixskin silicone which is a highly realistic body and sanitation safe silicone. Vixskin looks and feels very similar to cyberskin and human skin. It warms to body temperature and maintains heat well making it feel like a real penis. What is fantastic about vixskin is that although lifelike the silicone can be fully sanitized keeping you and your partners safe. Vixskin is a superior silicone created by Vix Creations. It is hypo-allergenic, latex free, and phthalates free. Vixskin is nonporous, boilable, bleachable (10% solution), and dishwasher safe. You can also clean Johnny with antibacterial soap and water or toy cleaner. This material will pick up lint so I suggest keeping it in the plastic box it comes in. Only water based lubricants should be used with vixskin, other types of lubricants can damage and degrade the silicone. Maintenance for this dildo is pretty low and as long as you follow the general maintenance requirements of silicone vixskin will be fine.
