Our supplier of silicone and latex nipples for FRIGG pacifiers
The company Almo Sil was founded in Hobro, Denmark in 2020 by the married couple Kent and Kirsten Hansen.
At Almo Sil, they are experts in latex and silicone production, especially of nipples for pacifiers. In fact, they are the only manufacturer in Denmark producing elements in latex.
They make a virtue of making products of the highest quality, which are 100% produced in Denmark. That is why they regularly check all products,
and they are tested to handle at least twice what they are approved for. Additionally, in 2022, they got certified with the ISO1901:2015, which ensures that their products meet international safety standards.
At the same time, it also means a lot to them that the production processes and products are sustainable,
which is why they are constantly working to improve, while focusing on several of the Global Goals. In addition, they also test the end product themselves in
their own laboratory, where they are subjected to several different tests in relation to which substances they contain, but also tear strength and durability at different temperatures.
Almo Sil produces latex and silicone nipples for our FRIGG pacifiers, and we are happy and proud of our collaboration with them.
Latex: A sustainable material
Latex is considered a sustainable material since the life cycle
of a tree is 32 years. When a tree turns seven years old, the
liquid latex can be harvested twice a day for the next 25 years.
When the tree can no longer be used, it is cut down and the
remaining wood is used for production of rubber wood furniture.
Thereby the life cycle is sustainable and the product 100% natural.
The source: Rubber trees
The journey of our FRIGG latex pacifier begins with its primary
raw material – natural rubber latex. This substance is derived
from the sap of rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis), which are
native to South America but now predominantly grown in
Southeast Asia. The process starts with tapping, where skilled
workers make careful cuts into the tree's bark, allowing the milky
white liquid latex to flow out and be collected in containers. Once
collected, the liquid latex is transported to Almo Sil where it
undergoes a coagulation process before it is ready to be molded
into nipples for FRIGG pacifiers.
Medical grade silicone: The purest kind of silicone
In addition to natural rubber (latex), we also use medical grade
silicone for our FRIGG pacifier nipples. The material is 100% free
from harmful and hormone-disrupting substances such as
BPA, PVC, and phthalates, and does not cause allergic reactions
or irritations to the skin. This makes medical grade silicone a safe
choice, especially when used in products for children.
Furthermore, medical grade silicone is known for its flexibility,
durability, resistance to heat/cold and UV rays, which makes it a
suitable material for FRIGG pacifiers.
