The Kawan teether can be cleaned in warm water and mild soap can be used if needed. Do NOT boil it. The teether should be kept in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight or contact with a source of direct heat in order to last longer. Due to the natural colours, they might fade over time. If there are splits or changes in the teether, it should be discarded. Very few children are allergic to natural rubber, however watch out for any allergic reactions, and stop any use if an allergic reaction should occur because of using the teether.
You can boil the panda teether to sterilize or use a machine specially made for sterilization. It should NOT be cleaned in a dishwasher or microwave.
It is not recommended to freeze or cool down the teether, as it can damage the baby’s gums.
Yes. Hevea teethers are tested by independent laboratories to prove compliance with the CE & EN71 safety standard.
It is highly unlikely; however, protein is a naturally occurring element in latex from the rubber tree which actually helps to preserve the rubber in a liquid state allowing us to work with it. During the production process, much of the latex protein is leeched out, resulting in very low levels in the finished item.
No allergic reaction to any Hevea product has yet been reported, but we urge parents to be aware of the unlikely potential for a latex allergic reaction.
Allergic reactions to latex vary considerably. If you are aware of any family history of latex allergy or if you notice any symptoms in your child that cause you concern or if your child has had a previous reaction to any other rubber products then we suggest you stop the use of your Hevea product without delay and visit your medical practitioner. Identifying early symptoms may prevent more serious effects.
The rubber industry as a whole is constantly looking at ways to reduce the potential for allergic reaction and we actively support our suppliers in this initiative. Allergic reactions to latex are not normally dangerous, but symptoms of it can include:
- Itchy, red or watery eyes
- Sneezing or a runny nose
- Rash or hives
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
