Natural Rubber Soothers are extremely hygienic because they are molded in one piece. This means there are no joins or cracks in the natural rubber soother where dirt and bacteria can accumulate.
The natural rubber soother shield is larger than conventional soother shields, the shield touches baby’s nose, providing closer simulation to breastfeeding. The size of the shield also prevents babies from squeezing the soother into their mouths. It does not leave marks on the baby’s face due to the high level of elasticity of natural rubber.
The Natural Rubber Soother contains: No BPA, No chemical softeners, No parabens, No PVC, No Phthalates.
Advantages of your Natural Rubber Soother:
- High level of elasticity & flexibility of the material (silicone soothers have less elasticity than rubber and it can rapidly tear once the surface has been damaged)
- Extreme durability (silicone teats are being used for long periods keep an eye out for any signs of damage).
- Excellent pull-and-tear resistance
- Environmentally friendly disposal (silicone soothers are made from oil based materials and are a non renewable resource).
- Non-static properties – latex does not attract dust
The Natural Rubber Soother is a green product as it produced using a sustainable raw material, the tree sap from the rubber tree used in our soothers is grown and made in Malaysia. Natural Rubber Soothers are available in round (cherry) and orthodontic shapes, both have the same size shield and there are five sizes to choose from.
- Round small 0-3 months
- Orthodontic shape small 0-6 months
- Round medium 3-6 months
- Orthodontic shape large 6+ months
- Round large 6+ months
Natural Rubber Soothers should be boiled in water for 2 minutes (and allowed to cool) before first time use. Afterwards they should be cleaned on a daily basis. Natural Rubber Soothers will slightly change colour during use. Natural Rubber Soothers should be replaced every 8-12 weeks (depending on frequency of use) with the age appropriate size, if you and your child still need the additional support a soother can provide.
Natural Rubber Soother Director Meredith Marshall was born in Collaroy on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. She was introduced to natural living at an early age through time spent on the beach. As a Business Mother of 8 boys (ages 17, 13, 11, 7, 5, 4, 21 months and newborn (born 26th Oct 2012) it has been natural progression from leading an ethical and organic lifestyle to offering the same to her consumers.
Meredith started bringing natural rubber soothers, teats and teethers to Australia in 2007.
The story of how Natural Rubber Soothers came about is only ‘natural’.
The Natural Rubber Soother project encapsulates my philosophy of being able to assist babies with natural alternatives when choosing a soother, teether or even teats for their bottles.
Our manufacturing partner in Malaysia (where rubber trees are grown) pride themselves on their excellence in sustainability as well as a common respect for natural materials, quality and service. We work closely with them to reduce our environmental impact. Our Natural Rubber Soothers are flown from Malaysia directly to Sydney, the carbon emissions output to do this is just 2.44 tons, compared with other companies importing products from Europe which produce carbon emissions of 9.88 tons.
