Sylk uses natural, safe ingredients
that are unlikely to irritate the delicate
vaginal area. Sylk is a water based
lubricant which is free from nasty
chemicals, hormones and parabens.
Especially formulated, Sylk has the

Kiwifruit – full of good things
Kiwifruit originated in China where they are known as ‘Chinese Gooseberries’. After being imported into
New Zealand, now the world’s largest producer, they were renamed after the countries unique bird. Kiwifruit
are high in many vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, C & E, folic acid and antioxidants which help
minimise the effects of free radicals.
Kiwifruit grow on vines, which are cut to harvest the fruit and then left to naturally biodegrade on the ground.
However research showed that every part of the plant is valuable, and here at Sylk we extract the vine gum
and use it to produce our gentle intimate moisturiser that is as natural as you.
The vine gum – unique and special
There is no other natural gum like the kiwi fruit gum when it comes to viscosity (slipperiness) and shear
(smoothness). It is also clear, tasteless, scentless and non-staining. It is so similar to natural lubrication that
nobody need know you are using it, so only you decide whether to share the secret.
As natural as you
The vine gum has a pH balance the same as the healthy vagina which is slightly acidic. If the delicate pH
balance is disrupted then harmful bacteria that cause infections can take hold. Sylk makes sure that everything
stays in balance, keeping you hydrated just the way nature intended.
Safe and gentle
Sylk has undergone all standard tests for safety and irritation. The vine gum does not come from the actual fruit
so is unlikely to cause any reaction even if you are allergic to kiwifruit. However, if you want, you can test a little
Sylk on your skin (we suggest the inside of the wrist) to make sure there is no adverse reaction. For extra
reassurance check with your GP.
Sylk personal lubricant is recommended by doctors, specialist nurses, therapists and other health professionals.
