SYLK is a water based odourless, non-sticky, tasteless, scentless and stainless Personal Lubricant. Unmatched for its smooth semi-fluid consistency, it is sensual, silky and slippery.
Made from 100% natural kiwifruit vine extract, SYLK does not contain any silicones, petroleum derivatives, animal products or parabens that are often found in the leading personal lubricant brands. SYLK is completely safe to be used during pregnancy and while breast feeding and can also be used with condoms and sex toys.
Kiwi vine gum extract is a perfect ingredient for a vaginal lubricant due to its pH control being within the limits of 4.5 to 4.7 which matches the normal vaginal environment. Maintaining the pH balance is crucial because the slightly acidic environment of the vagina keeps it hostile to bacteria. If the pH balance is upset, infections can take hold.
For over 30 years, SLYK Personal Lubricant has been helping women of all ages with vaginal dryness, providing relief for this common, but often misunderstood condition.
Vaginal dryness – a growing problem in younger women
Vaginal dryness occurs when the tissues of the vagina are not well lubricated and can occur at any age, and whilst it is more common in mature women, an increasing number of younger females are also experiencing this issue. Vaginal dryness can cause pain or discomfort in everyday life or during sexual intercourse, which may affect intimacy. This condition can also lead to bacterial or yeast infections. Certain medications such as oral contraceptives and anti-histamines can lead to an increase in vaginal dryness.
What Causes Vaginal Dryness?
While menopause is one of the most common causes of vaginal dryness, there are many other factors that can contribute to the condition. Childbirth, breastfeeding, radiation, before and after ovulation, chemotherapy, removal of ovaries, some medications (such as antidepressants), allergy and cold & flu medications, douching, even a lack of foreplay can all cause vaginal dryness.
Lubricant is one of the ultimate products for improving a sex life. This simple, inexpensive addition can have a transformative effect. Many young women assume that dryness is ‘just an issue for older women’ and that lubricants are only required for ‘fixing’ a sexual problem. Many young women assume that if they aren’t naturally lubricated, then they have a problem. This is a complete myth.
Vaginal secretions vary between women and throughout an individual’s life and are affected by a multitude of issues – hormonal, medical, relationship, mental and chemical.
Other times when SYLK comes in handy
Aside from use during sexual activity, SYLK is also ideal to use during a pap smear and to assist in the insertion of tampons.
