Our products may seem more expensive but ours are all imported from the USA. We don't buy or import el-cheapo imitations from China. China made imitations may appear similar to the genuine ones but they are itchy to use and pose some health risks issues to the end-user. Others may disregard this but features like Phthalate-free, latex-free, non-toxic materials are crucial when you use it several times a week especially on sensitive parts of our bodies. Exposure to toxic chemicals is a serious concern causing some long- term health issues as you use them. Effects are cumulative as these toxic chemicals take some time to be excreted from the human body.
