Offical Silicone Product Consumer Guide
Make Better Decisions When Shopping For Silicone Products
Welcome to the Official Silicone Consumer Guide whose purpose is to educate those buying silicone-based products from smoke shops, head shops, online retailers, and other resellers.
Silicone is a material that is used to make products such as non-stick containers for storing concentrates, water pipes, hand pipes, joint/blunt crutches, and several others.
As of recently, silicone products are exploding on the scene and much of it is bought overseas or through shady online wholesale markets such as DHGate and Alibaba.
Getting started in the silicone sector is not difficult, much of the best designs and concepts are bootlegged and sold ready to put a companies logo on it.
While we are not taking on the task of stopping bootlegging, we want consumers and retailers to know that in the end there needs to be a minimum standard of quality for these products.
Why Did We Make This Guide?
We want to be clear, we did not make this Official Silicone Consumer Guide in order to compare China against USA products.
You can definitely have high-quality products made in China.
The main reason we made this guide is that companies are knowingly choosing lower grade materials and/or are being fooled by Chinese manufacturers in order to cut costs and turn bigger profits.
This largely happens because of the lack of regulation within our industry.
While other industries abide by strict packaging, quality, and manufacturing standards our industry has no such standards. Well, yet anyway.
What our end goal would be is that consumers and shop owners regulate with their dollars and don’t support companies who sell low-quality products.
We also want to praise the companies who without anyone watching is still doing it right. We can also applaud companies who change their business practices to catch up to the standards that the leaders in the industry have set.
