SYLK® is the only all-natural moisturizing lubricant on the market made with New Zealand kiwifruit vine extract. SYLK® is designed to moisturize and supplement the body’s natural lubrication.
As a married woman in her early 50’s I can honestly say that SYLK has been a lifesaver! For years I have suffered from vaginal dryness and my husband and I have used numerous lubricants most of which we found to be messy, oily, tacky and caused discomfort. Then we were introduced to SYLK which is a natural, water-based lubricant (very important especially for women) and loved the way it felt immediately. One of the best things I love about this product is I only need a tiny amount and it lasts!! The tube that it comes in never gets messy and oily either like some others we have used in the past. SYLK is the only lubricant we will use from now on! Thanks for keeping our sex life very much alive!
FDA 510(k) Cleared Class II Medical Device
When shopping for a personal lubricant, many consumers are unaware that personal lubricants are classified as Class II Medical Devices by the FDA. This means that lubricants must go through a strict set of testing and protocols to be considered safe and effective for consumer use. The health and safety of our consumers is our number one priority. The SYLK formula has successfully completed all necessary testing and protocols and is an FDA cleared Class II Medical Device, no prescription required.
The SYLK® Formula with Nature’s Wonder Ingredient
The SYLK® formula is made with kiwifruit vine extract that is harvested from orchards in the Province of Auckland, New Zealand. Kiwifruit vine contains an inherent ingredient known as polysaccharides; through our proprietary extract process, we collect the natural film-like lubricant which is similar to that of what the body produces. Polysaccharides are polymeric carbohydrate molecules composed of long chains of monosaccharide units bound together by glycosidic linkages and on hydrolysis which give the constituent monosaccharides or oligosaccharides.
Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, and Sodium Citrate
The SYLK® formula also contains potassium sorbate (PS) to prolong shelf life and to inhibit harmful bacteria from forming in the product. The potassium sorbate used in SYLK® is a natural compound derived from fruits and vegetables.
The SYLK® formula also includes natural preservatives such as citric acid and sodium citrate, which are intended to optimize the pH of SYLK®.
