In brief: Biocompatible resin
Invisalign aligners are made with USP class vi medical grade, high molecular weight, polyurethane resins & classified as class ii medical devices by the fda.
Align technology has held the necessary clearance from the fda since 1998 to be able to sell & market invisalign. Invisalign also does not contain bisphenol-a or phthalate plasticizers. All tests show they are safe & biocompatible for humans.

In brief: Clear plastic
It is a trade secret, but they are fda approved.
