About

Hi! I'm Kate. I founded Subana on a mission to make adult toys more sustainable and body friendly.

First - let's take back control of our health.

I was shocked to learn that most public health regulators including the FDA do not regulate the adult toy industry, routinely classifying toys as "novelty items". Unfortunately, this means they aren't subject to mandated testing, and therefore can contain some pretty toxic chemicals. An example is phthalates - usually found in the rubber of cheap sex toys. It's been banned in children's toys by the US, Japan, Canada and the EU, yet it's still legal in adult toys. 
 
It's been my mission not only to raise awareness about how dangerous traditional plastic adult toys can be, but to offer an affordable and enjoyable alternative. Subana's toys are made from glass and metal, which according to experts, are the safest materials for intimate use.


Second - the planet!

It's estimated that 83% of sex toys are made from unsustainable materials, 70% of which is plastic. Despite plastic being recyclable, it's uncommon for owners to properly recycle their toys, due to the current taboo (we're working to change this!)

What's more, if owners do send used sex toys to recycling facilities, only a small handful of toys will be recycled, due to the mixed materials and intricate assemblement of many toys; making it challenging for local facilities to correctly recycle them. This unfortunately means that many are sent to landfill.

Subana only use sustainable materials and avoid excessive mixed materials and electrical goods. We also ensure our products are high quality and long lasting by using strong and sustainable materials. Meaning you'll have your item for longer, lowering the need to dispose or replace them over time.

Subana's Glass Sex Toys

Strength

The glass used to create Subana's toys is exceptionally strong. The difference between the glass we use in our toys and your average window pane is its strength, durability, response to gradual changes in temperature and chemical resistance. If you drop your Subana glass toy on the ground, it's not going to shatter like a drinking glass. Consider how robust a home oven dish is - our glass sex toys are made out of the same thing. Once you've held one of our toys, you'll notice their density - they're not hollow!

Sustainability 

Glass sex toys are more easily recyclable and unlike plastic, if they are sent to landfill they do not leech toxic chemicals into our environment.

Quality and Enjoyment

Glass sex toys are arguably the safest and most enjoyable sex toy you could own. They are hypoallergenic, non-toxic and non-porous. They are safe for those with allergies or sensitivities and are incredibly easy to clean - therefore reducing the risk of unwanted germs.

Our glass toys are also perfect for temperature play - cooling or warming your toy to explore a whole new range of exciting sensations. For instance, you can place your glass toy in the freezer (make sure it has 5-10 minutes to slightly warm up again before you use it). The icy touch of the smooth glass will heighten sensations to any body part it touches.

Subana's Stainless Steel Sex Toys

Strength

Subana's steel sex toys are extremely durable, long lasting and easy to keep hygienic. Our stainless steel sex toys can be used with water, oil or silicone based lubricant, as they are both non-porous and non-corrosive.

Sustainability 

Stainless steel is another great green alternative to traditional silicone toys. It's 100% recyclable and again, isn't coated with toxic materials. What's more, stainless steel uses scrap metal as its primary raw material, with up to 70% of the product coming from recycled components - providing an excellent and eco friendly alternative to plastic.

Quality and Enjoyment

Our stainless steel sex toys smooth, clean and solid, offering a pleasurable and intense experience. The weight of a metal toy often makes it feel extra impactful whilst in use, too.

Subana's steel sex toys come in different shapes and sizes, and can be used in multiple ways to offer a range of penetration techniques.

 

Subana's Bamboo Toys 

Strength

When compared to wood, bamboo fibre is 2-3 times stronger than timber, and is much more lightweight. Making it easier to transport, and more durable over long periods of time. 

Sustainability 

Bamboo actually absorbs 2 x more carbon dioxide than trees, which is why they are known to act as 'carbon sinks'. Bamboo is also known to generate a vast amount of oxygen, totalling up to 30% more oxygen than most other plants and trees. What's more, bamboo can help to protect biodiversity and endangered species by creating homes for a variety of different animals. 

Bamboo is a hugely flexible material in terms of how it can be used. For instance, bamboo can be used for building material, clothing, and even in our case, for sex toys! Why is this good? Because bamboo can grow to full size within just 3-4 months, compared to other trees which can take over 30 years to grow. It's a fantastically sustainable and renewable resource which can be used to replace many of our loved items made from resource-intensive materials.

Quality and Enjoyment

Bamboo fibres are naturally anti-bacterial, making it a sterile and fresh material for intimate use, like our sex toys.
