Where does natural rubber come from?
Hevea Brasiliens, better known as rubber tree, is the main raw material for HEVEA products.
The farms have millions of trees that are "milked" early in the morning. Rubber "milking" refers to the process where the latex is drained from an opening made to the trunk of the tree. This task required special skills to enable the tree to a healthy and long life cycle.
Rubber trees can drain latex for an average of 35 years. During that time, the tree has time to bind about 20kg of carbon dioxide. In this way, HEVEA prevents climate change and fights against it.
The material used in HEVEA products comes from Southeast Asia, where the highest quality rubber trees are cultivated. The company actively fights against climate change and works in cooperation with manufacturers to ensure good working conditions both on farms and in factories.

Is natural rubber recyclable?
YES, natural rubber breaks down when exposed to sunlight, moisture and air.
By choosing rubber products instead of a plastic or silicone product, which are made from oil and petroleum, you prevent climate change! The production of the natural rubber product has not destroyed fossil fuels or tree plantations.
Did you know that it takes about a decade for a natural rubber toy to disappear from the earth, while it takes 500-1000 years for a plastic toy to disappear?

How to use HEVEA pacifiers?

This is not dangerous for your child at all. The grease is vegetable oil that prevents the pacifier from drying out. It disapears completely when you wash the pacifier before use. The smell, on the other hand, is the characteristic smell of natural rubber, which is not harmful, but just the same as, for example, an apple!
How long can I use the same natural rubber pacifier?
The recomended use time of the pacifier is approx 2 months.
