What is in Sylk?
Female Friendly Formula
Sylk uses plant based ingredients that are kind and gentle to sensitive tissues. Sylk is a water based lubricant which is free from nasty chemicals, hormones and parabens. It is also clear, tasteless, odourless, non-greasy and non-staining. Sylk has been specially formulated to ensure it is non-drying and adheres to WHO guidelines for Osmolality levels.
With a pH that mirrors the vaginal environment (4.5-4.7) , Sylk helps keep your vagina hydrated, healthy and in balance.

The vine gum – unique and special
Sylk is made using extract of New Zealand kiwifruit vine gum. Whilst the kiwifruit is well-known for its healing properties, being high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, less is known about the vine gum. Traditionally the vines are a by-product of the kiwi fruit harvest and are left to decompose. At Sylk, we take the vines and extract an amazing gum substance which is the perfect base for a lubricant because of its viscosity (slipperiness) and shear (smoothness). It is these properties that create the uniquely silky texture that feels like natural lubrication. You can read more about our wonder ingredient here.
Use Sylk with confidence
Sylk has been helping women with vaginal dryness for over twenty years, giving relief from this common but often misunderstood condition. Sylk has been extensively tested and passed all relevant product stability and toxicological tests. Each batch also undergoes regular testing and results are available on request.
As Sylk is made from the kiwi vine not the fruit, it is safe to use even if you have a kiwi fruit allergy. For extra reassurance, we would advise doing a skin patch test and consulting your GP.
