Although the protective covering is sturdy, it can be damaged by sharp objects. Therefore please take care that pins, jewellery, scissors, etc. should be avoided when wearing or handling the breast form.
CARING FOR MY BREAST FORM DAILY.
Do not use powder or perfume on your breast form. Powders tend to dry the breast form and perfumes may damage the textured film that surrounds the silicone that causes it to breakdown quicker allowing the silicon to leak out.
