I have a bottle of Liquid Silk, and it actually states right on the bottle "water based" even though dimethicone is one of the ingredients. Yes, dimethicone is a type of silicone. I can't remember which reviews specifically, but I know I've read in reviews for this lube that it can harm silicone toys, and that you should perform a spot test before use to be sure.
That being said, I'm not entirely sure what putting in a support ticket would do. The misleading labeling is the fault of the manufacturer.
Actually, there IS something the site can do. They can't change the packaging, yes, but they CAN change how the items are presented on the site. Instead of putting them in the "Water-based Lubricants" section, they can put it in the "Hybrid Lubricants" section and show that it has a base of water AND silicone so that consumers will know this without having to know that dimethicone is a silicone.
@ Badass: As others have confirmed, dimethicone is INDEED a silicone-based ingredient. It seems that some people have not had reactions but I've heard of others who have (or at least were wary of it). I think the lubricants ARE, overall, "water-based" but this one ingredient could possibly cause problems so I wanted to make sure.
@ js250: No problem! If you've been using it, you're probably okay, then, but you might want to change your lubricant just to make sure.
@ AskEden: I'll send JR a message, too, just in case, then. I didn't want to bother others at first right away because I wasn't sure if it was a big deal since no one else brought it up before. I thought maybe I was just misinformed and was missing something, possibly.
