Our skin is the largest organ in our body and around 60% of what we apply to it gets absorbed into our bloodstream. That is the reason why what we put on our skin is equally important as what we put in our body because they both effect our wellbeing as a whole.
A healthy vagina has a natural pH, which is somewhat acidic, creating an unfriendly environment for harmful and damaging bacteria. If the pH balance is a disturbed, bacterium can multiply causing infections and irritation.
Parabens are frequently used chemical preservative found in everyday common products from food to shampoo. They have been used in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for many years and are considered reasonably safe. Recently research has indicated parabens may disrupt hormones in people and may have other side effects when consumed.
SYLK does NOT contain parabens.
SYLKdoes NOT test its product on animals.

We would recommend that you put a drop of SYLK natural lubricant on the tip of the condom and then massage plenty on the outside areas.
Because SYLK contains natural ingredients it is safe to use anally and orally.
Pregnancy and SYLK
Even though SYLK is not harmful, it is not recommended to use ANY lubricants when trying to conceive. In normal healthy conditions, the vagina is slightly acidic, but when we ovulate the pH balance in the vagina changes to around 7. This neutral pH state assists conception. The pH balance of SYLK (like most other lubricants) can affect the movement of sperm, so is best to be avoided during the period of conception.
We advise that you check with your obstetrician, GP or midwife before using any products whilst pregnant; however we can reassure you that SYLK is safe. SYLK is made from gentle, natural, plant based ingredients free from any harmful chemicals, hormones or parabens. SYLK can be used throughout pregnancy and afterwards to assist lovemaking or just to keep everything more comfortable.
