WASSERBILLIG, Luxembourg/ TORONTO — Lube manufacturer pjur and Canada-based BMS Factory partnered to test the effects of pjur’s silicone lube formulas on Swan silicone vibrators.
The tests focused on pjur Original, pjur Woman, pjur Basic. According to the company, for each test, the contents of two bottles of the given product and a Swan vibrator were placed in a container. Then, the vibrator remained in the silicone formulation for three-and-a-half months without interruption.
“After this time, the toys were taken out, cleaned and then thoroughly examined. No changes whatsoever to the material or the shape could be found,” the company said.
“Our tests took quite a while, but we wanted to make sure they lasted an adequate amount of time to show any effects if they were going to happen,” BMS Factory Marketing Coordinator Sean Marshall said. “The results of the tests are a very positive outcome. It’s safe to say that overall, these tests were a success for pjur, Swan, and BMS as distributor of these high-quality brands. It should be noted that these experiments were not performed in a scientific environment and use of a silicone lubricant is still up to the discretion of the user. However, these tests do help pave the way for more professional and scientific tests in the future.”
Alexander Giebel, founder and CEO of pjur group, adds: “Quality prevails in all areas of life. Premium products are much more cost-effective in the end, because you can use those products much longer than cheap low-priced ones. Not to mention the superior design, craftsmanship, and buying experience. It’s just too bad that many retailers and consumers give in to the price war and are put off by false statements.”
