One of the important decisions to make choosing sex doll is picking the doll material.  Silicone as a material is more established.  Most silicone dolls are made of platinum (medical grade) silicone.  Silicone rubber is a mixture of silicon polymer together with carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) is a newer material used in manufacturing of dolls. TPE is less expensive than silicone.  Every company has a recipe for TPE dolls at adoll-japan we use specially blended Japanese TPE.
