How Sylk worked for us

Estimates suggest only a quarter of women suffering vaginal dryness seek medical help. That’s why we love to hear from you. We believe that sharing personal experiences helps us support each other as sometimes vaginal dryness is one of those issues that we are reluctant to talk about. If you experience vaginal dryness you are definitely not alone.

Lifestyle issues such as stress, infrequent lovemaking, pregnancy, effects of childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause and using tampons can all adversely affect vaginal lubrication. Additionally, health conditions such as diabetes, bladder and incontinence problems or reactions to drug therapies like Tamoxifen and Anastrozole used in cancer
treatment can contribute to vaginal dryness.

At Sylk it’s all about you, not us, so we want to know what you think.

“A couple of years ago my wife had to have a full hysterectomy, which led to the physical side of our life being extremely difficult to say the least. We had tried the ‘usual’ gels and creams, but to no avail. Then I found out about Sylk on the internet and thought we would give it a go. I purchased this from Jane’s health shop in Ashby de la Zouch and we haven’t looked back since. I couldn’t believe the difference it made, it is truly wonderful stuff. We would both like to thank you very much for giving us back what we had lost.”

“Sylk natural lubricant has enabled me to continue to enjoy lovemaking and to embrace this stage of my life rather than fear it.”

Tim & Mary

“I’ve struggled with vaginal soreness for over 20 years using various lubricants which haven’t helped and many of which have irritated my skin. Sylk lubricant makes me feel more comfortable with no irritation.”

Jo, 56 years

“My partner said Sylk was the best lubricant ever, much more natural than any we’ve had before. None of the sensitivity was lost during lovemaking.”

Beth, 67 years

“I’ve not had penetrative sex for 20 years. I’ve also suffered a terrible vaginal irritation. I used Sylk 2 nights ago and not had an itch or soreness since. If only I’d known about Sylk lubricant earlier.”


“I was amazed at how little of Sylk lubricant you needed to use.”


“We were ready to give up and then we tried Sylk lubricant. It feels just so natural, unlike other gels.”

Nicola, 52 years

“Hard to describe how natural Sylk lubricant feels compared to the jelly which we now realised created a barrier between us instead of being sensitive.”


“Thank you for the free sample of Sylk I got. I’m so impressed I’ve been to the doctor's and got it on repeat prescription. Can’t believe how impressed I am with this lubricant. It’s made my life a whole lot easier. Thanks.”
