A look into the innovative cushions from Mom Experts, BeauGen
When people get to touch and feel our cushions, they often express that they’re not like anything they’ve felt before. During the design process we searched high and low to find a material that was as close to mom’s breast tissue as possible. Why? The reasons are many! Read on or watch the short video below.
Learn what material BeauGen Breast Pump Cushions are made of and more in this short video from our Founder and CEO, Tu-Hien Le.
What We’ve Used to Make BeauGen Breast Pump Cushions and Why:
Drum roll please! Just kidding, without further ado, the cushions are made from a soft and stretchy...plastic! Not silicone, not rubber, etc. Modern technology has given us a wide range of materials to choose from when making our cushions. We rolled up our sleeves...and more... to stress test these materials and save your sensitive skin and nipples from any further torture.
BeauGen not only wants to take the pain out of the breast pumping experience for moms, but we also want to make the experience as comfortable and natural as possible. The soft and stretch plastic conforms to the breast and nipple, instead of forcing the breast and nipple to conform to the hard plastic of the flange.
Better Flange Fit
Just like each birth story is different, each mom is unique. Your typical flange sizes don’t always provide a mother with the perfect fit. The addition of a BeauGen Breast Pump Cushion can help to appropriately size the flange to achieve a better fit for a pumping mom.
We also want our cushions to be easy to use for everyone. This plastic is tacky which makes the cushions adhere to both mom’s skin to absorb friction, and the plastic flange to help keep it in place. For more information on how to use the cushions, check out the How It Works Page on our site.
It also ensures that more women can benefit from the cushions as this plastic eliminates the worry and frustration of moms with latex allergies.
This plastic is BPA free, FDA-compliant, and food safe. Safe, simple, yet effective. You don’t need frills, or overcomplicated solutions. You deserve a product that works as hard as you do. A bonus: The cushion is 100% recyclable, so they are also safe for our environment..
