Hydrated Silica

Naturepedic uses only hydrated silica which is "Generally Recognized As Safe" for use in food products (a U.S. Food and Drug Administration Classification) . Silica is a natural mineral that can be found in sand, rocks, etc. It is a major constituent of human tissue, cartilage, bones, teeth, etc., and is even available at health food stores as a food supplement. It is also a primary ingredient in natural toothpaste and hundreds of food and other consumer products.

Unlike fire protection systems based on controversial fire retardant chemicals, the Naturepedic system is based on food-grade ingredients that are essential to human health.
