About ChewigemTM Canada
CHEWIGEM® is a UK based, chewable jewellery designed to meet the needs of those children and adults who need to chew. The company is positioned as one of the leading providers of oral sensory items in the world and is very focused on providing safe as well as environmentally friendly products.
CHEWIGEM® has their own design team which ensures that designs are unique to the company and are not mass produced.
CHEWIGEM ® jewellery is non-toxic, stylish and effective at meeting the need to chew. It is also a lot more discreet than some chewing aids available on the market. With a wide range of stylish designs, you'll find a broad range of colours to choose from, and a Chewigem that is sure to suit you.
Our silicone is food safe, medical grade, is free from harmful chemicals (BPA, PVC, Lead, Latex and Phthalate free) and meets FDA standards. CHEWIGEM® principles work closely with the factory to ensure that all regulations are being met. Safety tests are consistently done on all products to meet the standards of the countries in which they are sold.
We know when it comes to chew products, safety is so very important. As such, CHEWIGEM® have secured the CE mark against the required Toy standards. This is probably a bit extreme, as Chewigems are not toys, but this seemed the most robust test. Toxicity and bite tests have also been carried out on all our products.
You can be assured we make no compromises on the safety or quality of our products!
