What is in SYLK
SYLK uses feminine friendly elements in its ingredients, which are plant based and safe. Specially formulated, SYLK is pH compatible to the vaginal environment and very unlikely to cause any irritation even if you have allergies to kiwifruit. However, if you are concerned we advise to do your own skin test, (we suggest applying a small amount of SYLK to your wrist, or inner thigh) to make sure there is no adverse reaction. For extra assurance please seek advice from your health care provider. SYLK is free from harsh chemicals, synthetic hormones and parabens. You can be confident that SYLK provides gentle and healthy moisturizing lubrication.

SYLK is Paraben Free
Parabens are the most extensively used preservatives and are added to everything from personal care products to food, in order to inexpensively extend shelf life and promote stability by stopping bacteria, fungus, and any other microbes from growing in the product. In fact, you would struggle to walk down any isle in a supermarket or pharmacy without finding dozens of products containing parabens! It’s common to find more than one paraben used in a single product. Here are some of the most common names for parabens – methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and isobutylparaben.
Dangers of Parabens
Originally assumed safe for use in the 1950s, however over the past decade, disputes have risen regarding whether this commonly used chemical compound may be harmful to human health. One alarming question regarding parabens is the rising rate of breast cancer and its link to parabens. Here’s the problem, parabens have the ability to mimic or at least interfere with estrogen once absorbed or ingested into the human body. A new study out of the University of Reading (UR) in the UK has found that, based on tests conducted, nearly every single woman with breast cancer has one or more paraben chemicals in her breast tissue, suggesting a possible link between the chemical and the disease. Now, this does not necessarily prove that parabens are linked to breast cancer, but it is certainly cause for concern and definitely a good reason to avoid them!
When shopping for any personal care products or any products being ingested or topically applied at all, be sure to read all ingredient labels carefully to avoid unnecessary exposure to parabens. High-quality personal care products, like SYLK do not contain parabens. And its all you need to feel secure knowing that what’s helping you get wet isn’t also helping you get sick!
