For me, 2021 holds a wealth of opportunity, and I will hopefully get to see more of my friends and family (of course, as and when the government deem it safe). Staying connected with my friends and family in the coming year is going to be one of my main focuses, and I believe this to be in line with that of the UK population. We have all missed out on seeing family during milestones such as birthdays.
During this time, please keep in your mind, relatives or friends who are struggling to live independently and may require your assistance from time to time, check up on them and make sure they are doing well, this is what Christmas is all about. We know it can be challenging to spread the Christmas spirit when barriers such as lockdowns are in play. However, these people are a part of our community and deserve the utmost care.
2021 in terms of Tenura is another full year of helpful videos, and continued commitment to deliver our high-quality products internationally, to help everyone worldwide who hasn’t yet discovered the wonders of Tenura.
Fingers crossed we will see you at one of the exhibitions we plan on attending. However, it is too early to give any more details on the whereabouts, as we know, from our 2020 experience, these details are subject to change.

For those who reside in California, the Proposition 65 Law is very familiar in day to day life. However, other states may not be aware of this regulation. Tenura would love to bring some light to this situation, and inform our customers of the benefits of using Tenura over other companies.
To start off, California’s Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, known as Proposition 65, states that businesses must provide warnings when exposed to certain chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm. The state of California closely monitors the list, and ensures that if these chemicals are used and customers are not told of the composition, there could be serious fines for that company’s actions. The state can charge up to $2,500 per day, when a business does not inform their consumers of potential health risks.
What Are These Chemicals?
The Chemicals that cause these types of life altering issues are called phthalates. Companies will add these chemicals into plastics to make them flexible. They are banned and restricted in numerous parts of the world, including Europe and the US. Right now the list contains six chemicals, but you would be surprised as to what these chemicals are going into! Here are some examples:
- Lunch Boxes
- Garden Hoses
- Ink / Pigments
- Medical Devices
- Perfume / Nail Polish
How Are You Exposed to These Chemicals?
- Breathing in Phthalates that are in the air and dust
- Consuming Food contaminated with Phthalates from packaging
- Undergoing Surgeries / Medical procedures that use devices containing Phthalates
- Absorbing Phthalates through the skin by touching end products
- Transferring Phthalates from hand to mouth, from touching the end products
What is Tenura Doing to Make a Difference in Your Health?
Tenura offers a wide range of independent living aids. We have something for all areas of the home including worktops, trays, handles, and tables. Unlike numerous manufactures, Tenura daily living aids are made entirely from silicone. This means they are non-toxic and chemically harmless. There is no worry about phthalates within our products, as with the use of silicone, we don’t need them.
Tenura’s main goal is take care of the little things by helping people maintain an independent lifestyle. Not only do we supply materials for adults, but children as well. That is why our chemical composition is so important to us. We are here to help people become and stay independent. We know that with our silicone based daily living aids we can do just that!

Here at Tenura, we feel very much like evangelists of slip prevention. We have always seen the world as a hazardous place. It’s always inevitable that slip and fall accidents happen in slippery and dangerous areas if the correct precautions are not taken.
A good example of this was Dolphins Lineman Laremy Tunsil, who suffered and unfortunate slip and fall accident in the shower at the hotel the Dolphins were staying in before their game against the Titans. This injury to his ankle led Tunsil to miss the game after 4 solid starts.
This fall shows that it doesn’t matter what your physical stature, slips and falls are always around the corner, especially in places like wet rooms, bathrooms or showers. Many people see slips and falls as something which happens to those who are impaired, disabled or elderly. However, events like this really show how this can happen to anyone and can have serious effects on your life. We wish Laremy Tunsil a swift recovery.
Tenura believes a form of slip prevention should be in all baths, showers and wet rooms. Unfortunately, many of the current items for this, such as the common bath mats can create a trip hazard of their own and harbour bacteria easily if not cleaned often. Bath mats can also fold over or lift when moving your foot over them, creating a secondary trip hazard that is just as, if not more dangerous than the first.
Tenura Non slip bath and shower stickers are made from a non abrasive anti slip material called Aqua Safe. Aqua safe is an embossed PVC plastic which is completely waterproof and has very high grip levels, making it perfect for applying in areas where water will constantly sit. This materials non abrasive surface is extremely comfortable to walk and rest bare feet or soft fabrics on, preventing the damage or injury an abrasive solution could cause. Tenura non slip fabric and discs create a form of non slip surface without the need for a mat. These strips and discs can be applied directly to a dry bath, shower or wet room and be used instantly, without the danger of lift or creating a trip hazard.
Tenura aqua safe strips and discs can be found in white and transparent colors, allowing you to match and not disturb the aesthetics of bathrooms and showers whilst still offering effective slip protection.
