My body is crazy picky, too! So far the Silk is OK, but some of the other Sliquid products started causing itching, burning. etc. I suspect the guar gum is causing the problems this time. It's such a bitch, not to mention expensive, trying to narrow down ingredients to figure out what you can use! I understand your distress at possibly having to change. But I don't think you need to...
Here's the deal with the silicone. They say the high quality, platinum silicone pieces are safe to use with high quality silicone lubes. Sliquid Silk uses the highest quality silicone, which is dimethicone, so you're fine there. And it sounds like you paid a lot for your item, so it's not going to be a cheapo, mass-produced, low-quality silicone that will react.
What would help is if you could tell me the complete name & manufacturer of your toy, is it a dildo or a vibe?. I don't recognize the name, but do you mean peacock rather than peecock? If you want to respond here or send me a PM, I'll try and find out for you, OK? But if the maker says it's high grade, then you're in luck.
BTW, some manufacturers of expensive silicone products offer samples of the different colors &/or firmness of their offerings. I know at Bad Dragon, for example, you can buy really inexpensive discs of the different types of silicone they use. You could buy some of these to test lube(s) on. Of course, Sliquid may now be a big enough name that you can ask the toy company if they know how Silk works on their products.
