What is the difference between Silicone and TPE?

I'll keep this one short and simple. There's a lot of nuance, but basically TPE is a softer material (think rubber) and silicone is a harder material (think plastic). They both have their pros and cons.

TPE is a more porous material, meaning it's going to feel softer to the touch, which is nice. The downside is that it's not as durable as silicone and you'll need to make sure to keep it clean.

Silicone is a less porous material, meaning it feels harder to the touch, but you can put more detail into the surface and it's easier to clean. For example, some of the top line silicone dolls even have wrinkles around the eyes and blue veins under the skin.

It really comes down to personal preference. One of the brands we sell, 6YE, has a unique approach. They make the body out of TPE for softness and the face out of silicone for extra detail.  So that may be a brand to consider if you want a blend of both.
But at the end of the day it just comes down to preference.  Some people want maximum visual effects or durability (silicone) and some want maximum softness and affordability (TPE).  You can't go wrong either way.
