  1. HI! This had me curious so I checked the website, for composition. While the main pages are very elusive as to what they are made of, in the FAQ section under “can I use… if I am allergic to latex?” the answer reads: “Yes! The MyOwnCup is made from a 100% medical grade thermo elastic polymer that does not contain any latex silicone or rubber.”
    SO I guess we have another TPE cup out there. It is interesting that they seem to hide this and won’t just post that on the main pages though.

  2. I assume it is TPE as well. I did e-mail them to ask, but I haven’t heard back.
