  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.

  3. ‘My own cup’ is quite stiff and solid TPE, it comes in an airtight box, no cotton bag. Although sold in South Africa, the instructions are for urban people with money to buy sterilizing tablets.
