Silicone Residue

NarcissisticLust NarcissisticLust
Is there a good amount of time to wait between using silicone lube and silicone toys? After using silicone lubricant I usually use a water based because I feel it helps reduce the silicone residue, but I do not want to harm any of my silicone toys if waiting a day or less will cause damage. Any advice or is this more a personal decision?

Silicone will still be there, so I don't think is safe to use a silicone toy after that.

It is not a personal decision, silicone need soap and water to take it out of your hands or skin. I think it will stay there 1 day or even more if you use too much.
Silicone can go through skin or be absorbed, so is safe for you, but it wont go easy it need time.
I recommend to use only dimethicone silicone lubes, like Dr Love or this one link
But I guess Dr love lubes will be the safer one.

Does silicone soak into the skin? I thought that one reason it was so slick was that the silicone particles were too big to go into the skin.

What everyone else said.....

You should also check out Dwtim's lube compatibility workshop. You'll learn all about which lubes are truly compatible with which toys. You definitely want to patch test your silicone toys with silicone lubes. It's not impossible to use them together, but it can ruin your toy if you don't do a patch test first.

sorry I said it wrong. Dimethicone can't be absorbed, and that is way is safer than water base lubes.

I recently purchases Moist because it was voted number one in Women's Health Magazine. It is a dimethicone silicone lube, but what is the significance of dimethicone? Thank you for your comment

Thanks for the link, it's a bit all over the place but reading through it is really interesting. So far I'm surprised by the lack of disaster in his results

Cyclopentasiloxane Safety Measures/Side Effects:
Cyclopentasiloxane may cause mild skin and eye irritation, according to the ingredient’s material safety data sheet, and a small percentage of it reaches systemic circulation through dermal absorption, as found in a study by the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences.

Dimethicone Safety Measures/Side Effects:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)has approved its use as a “skin protectant” ingredient in over-the-counter (OTC) drug products. Furthermore, the Cosmetic Ingredient review (CIR) Expert Panel reviewed the data surrounding dimethicone, and assessed it as safe to use in personal care products. They determined that because of the large molecular weight of silicone based polymers such as dimethicone, it would be very unlikely for it to penetrate past the surface of the skin.

Both are silicones, but as you can see only Dimethicone/Dimethicon is what we can call safe because can not be absorbed by skin.

Thank you! This has all been really helpful! I'm always concerned about the ingredients in most lubricants, especially water, which can be absorbed, and silicone because it is non-organic.

The workshop did not have the same results as I expected but it was really interesting to read through. It seems lube compatibility issues is more harmful for our bodies than the toys.

I'm concerned about ingredients too mostly water lubes because, like you said, are highly absorbed.

I'm sure silicone lube (dimethicon only) is the best lube for sex and non-silicone toys. Water lubes need preservatives, and some of them are really bad.

Sliquid Sassy, H2O and some more form Sliquid are the only water lubes really safe for the body. No parabens, no PEG, no DMDM, just Potassium Sorbate.

EF has not modified the ingredient lists on Sliquid products line listed on EF so you will see the old formula but on some reviews users describe the new formula

Sliquid Sassy is the only water based lube I will use. I love how versatile it is while still being body safe. i looked into Maximus and Liquid Silk because they have pump bottles, but ultimately I wasn't willing to sacrifice the quality to Sliquid for convenience. I'm convinced Sliquid Sassy is the best water based lube for all around use.
