Silicones have been in use for several decades, and many studies have been undertaken
on their toxicity. The most recent study was released in 2012 by the European Centre For
Ecotoxicity Of Chemicals (ECETOC), and it concluded that
available data indicate that PDMS (silicone) does not present a risk to the environment or
to human health. The safety of PDMS has been recognised by its widespread use
in a wide range of applications that have resulted in environmental and human
exposure for nearly 50 years."
Studies by the US EPA and other reputable bodies have come to similar conclusions. .
