More info is listed below.

All major brands of polymer clay undergo testing to certify they are non-toxic materials suitable for craft use. When used as directed (eg. don’t eat it, put it in your eyes, use as diaper cream), it is perfectly safe for contact with your hands and to bake in your home oven. Polymer clay, when it’s cured, is actually just vinyl plastic. This is the same material used to make a baby doll, kiddie pool, tablecloth, and shower curtain. 

 

What Is Polymer Clay?

Polymer clay is a type of clay, but it comes from a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. PVC is a synthetic plastic polymer, and its number three when it comes to the most widely produced synthetic plastic polymers in the world. Because of its foundation, as well as additional ingredients, polymer clay stays soft and retains its color and size when baked, which leads to its use as a crafting material.

 

What Is in Polymer Clay?

A few items are in polymer clay, including:

  • Polymers for flexibility

  • Resins for the base

  • Fillers for texture

  • Coloring for different hues

 

The polymer clay used by Lucid Queen is wheat, dairy, gluten, sulfur, nut and latex free — and never tested on animals.
