TPE vs Silicone based Dolls
When choosing a love doll for the first time you may come upon the choice for choosing neither a TPE or a silicone love doll. For first timers this can be a bit confusing as both materials have their pros and cons. We hope to break it down for you here a bit to make selecting your new companion smooth and easy.
First of all most dolls we sell here at the moment are all going to be TPE love dolls. In the future we will be adding silicon based dolls for those interested in that material. Let's go over the two.
TPE which stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer. Which means that the material for these dolls is made from a combination of rubber and plastics. Thus containing attributes of both. This makes the doll durable, flexible, and shock absorbent. It is very popular as it makes our dolls very affordable.
What makes TPE so popular with doll manufacturers is how easy it is to work with. You can get very detailed figures with TPE and using a harder form of it has enabled doll creators to make very realistic faces and bodies for the dolls. Its soft to the touch, retains heat well, and is very squeezable and bouncy.
The cons with TPE is that the material can be very porous and retain moisture, causing bacteria build ups. To avoid this it is best to wash your doll regularly (as you would a real person) and use a combination of soap, mineral oil, and cleaning cloths to keep your doll shiny and fresh. This can actually be a fun thing you can do with your doll bathing together in the tub! Also TPE can dry out if left untouched for a time. Using any form of baby/mineral oil will help prevent that from occurring. There have been cases of people having allergic reactions to TPE, if you believe you are, please check with your doctor before purchasing a TPE Doll. Over the course of the year we will be providing video tutorials on proper doll maintenance and care to ensure that you get the most out of your investment shopping with 3DxDolls.
Silicone based dolls are made of just that, silicone. A widely available medical based material. However, being a popular and available material, it has found its way into almost every aspect of life, from kitchen appliances to breast implants.
The popularity of silicon based dolls comes from the super realistic and high quality dolls that can be made from it. These dolls often have the highest level of detail and feel the closest to an actual human being. They have higher durability than TPE dolls and are much easier to keep clean. There will be rarely any allergic reactions to using a silicone based doll.
The downside of silicon based dolls is generally the cost. As silicone is a much more costly material and the tech to create the doll is more time consuming, thus raising the price on the doll. It is less shock resistant than TPE and may take a bit longer to return to its original shape. It is heavier and a bit more rigid than TPE. It is possible to get a silicone based head for your doll on a TPE body. Check doll options for that feature.
Whether you choose to purchase a TPE or a silicone based love doll from 3DxDolls you can be sure that you’re getting a quality product that is going to give you years of enjoyment and companionship.
