Silicone

ASK THE DOCTOR

What's the difference between medical grade silicone and FDA body approved silicone?

I understand the confusion. Medical grade silicone and FDA body approved silicone are the same thing, so the terms can be used interchangeably. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves all materials that are used for medical purposes. Medical grade silicone, which is phthalate free, is usually grouped into three categories: non implantable (like sexual aids), short-term implantable, and long-term implantable.
