Amoena breast forms are made from two materials that are soft on the skin: Silicone and PU Film.
Silicone and PU-Film
Silicone is produced synthetically from the natural raw materials sand and coal and is therefore a natural product. It offers various advantages: silicone is kind to the skin, soft, water-repellent and very resistant to both chemicals and heat. This means that the breast forms adapt quickly to body temperature. Amoena develops and produces all its silicone gel itself. They are mixed from silicone raw materials and their quality is carefully checked.
The name PU Film refers to an extremely hard-wearing, high performance film that closely resembles the skin in softness and suppleness. Intensive tests have shown that the film causes no allergic reactions or skin irritation. With this gossamer-thin but hard-wearing film, the silicone breast form is very gentle on the skin and body.
Amoena's light-weight and flow breast forms are now covered in a SuperSoft film. This new, finely textured film has a natural silky look that is soft to the touch and is extremely flexible.
The adhesive surface on the inside of the Amoena Contact breast form is made from adhesive silicone. With excellent skin compatibility test results, adhesive silicone has long been used in medical practice.
Design and Development
The Amoena Design and Sizing Laboratory develops innovative product solutions that Amoena then has tested by the women affected. Their experience is built into the subsequent series production.
It has always been Amoena's philosophy that only women who have undergone breast surgery know best what the ideal breast form should do and how it should feel.
Amoena therefore relies on close cooperation with women who have undergone breast surgery and works in partnership with over one hundred women who test our products before they are launched onto the market. "Only by working together can we find the best solutions to the problems women face following breast surgery", says Brigitte Seehaus, who is responsible for the development of breast forms at Amoena. "The needs of our customers are changing constantly, so we must keep moving on to enable us to perfect the breast form designs of the future". She analyses the experiences of our test wearers and keeps in close contact with the medical professionals who fit our products.
Although the women involved in Amoena's test groups are all from different walks of life, they are united in one idea. They want to use their experience to do something for other women so that in the future others are spared the problems they themselves experienced following their surgeries.
