SYLK® has been trusted and sold internationally for over 30 years and is cleared in the U.S. by the FDA as a Class II medical device, proving its long-standing record of safety and effectiveness. SYLK is the only water-based moisturizing lubricant made with New Zealand kiwi vine extract- our unique ingredient that makes it ultra slippery, without being sticky or tacky. SYLK® was created in the 1980s in New Zealand and was prescribed and sold soon after in Australia and the United Kingdom. It quickly established a positive reputation among consumers and health professionals. At SYLK® USA, we remain steadfast in our commitment to making a high quality product that satisfies the most conscious and discerning consumers.


SYLK® is created from kiwi vine extract from kiwifruit orchards in the Pukekohe area of New Zealand. A byproduct of the kiwifruit harvesting operation, we extract the kiwi gum from the vines and utilize this significant ingredient that would otherwise be wasted.

Unlike other lubricants, SYLK’s proprietary formula with 100% purified natural New Zealand kiwifruit vine extract replicates the vagina’s natural, healthy pH balance and is designed to mimic the body’s natural lubrication. Formulated for gentle, safe lubrication, SYLK is not made with parabens, harsh chemicals, hormones, animal products, fragrances, artificial colors or flavors. While comparable products on the market can be sticky, tacky, and full of harmful chemicals which can cause itching, burning, and other unpleasant discomforts, SYLK’s Kiwi vine extract is combined with just 7 other ingredients making it ultra slippery.

SYLK is safe for use with all kinds of sex toys and condom compatible. It’s the perfect solution for ease and comfort for all those activities between the sheets.

  • Petroleum or petroleum-based ingredients. These ingredients can coat the skin with a barrier that interferes with its normal functions and permeability.
  • Parabens. Parabens are common chemical preservatives found in everything from food to shampoo. They have been used by cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies for many years and are considered safe. In recent years, some research has suggested parabens disrupt hormones in people and the environment, and they have been found in cancer tumours. Many consumers now choose to buy paraben free products.
  • Propylene glycol. This potentially toxic ingredient may cause some women to experience tissue irritation (chemical also found in some types of antifreeze).
  • Hydroxides. Commonly found in lubricants for pH balance, these ingredients are so powerful they are used in cleaners and are strong irritants.

SYLK is for everyone

SYLK personal lubricant is the unsung hero of sex and is trusted and loved by couples around the globe!
