Cornstarch or baby powder

Kestrel Kestrel
With the Maven sleeve masturbator (elastomer), should I use cornstarch instead of baby powder? Also, do I need to apply any powder to the inside?

With the Ridge Rider sleeve (TPR silicone), is any powder necessary to maintain the sleeve?

It is best to use Cornstarch on toys such as Maven sleeve. (Cyberskin, SoftTouch,Futurotic, ect.) I know that Cyberskin and the like products use thermoplastic elastomer (also known as TPE), so I figure cornstarch is the way to go.


Baby Powder may cause irritation. Talc is also not recommended. though most problems with Talc and Baby Powder are suggested for products geared towards women, Talc may be linked to forms of cancer.

I always use cornstarch, I do not take the risk of irritation or other problems.

Hope this helps

I'm with Viktor. The talc in baby powder makes it something I avoid completely. I use corn starch for all my toy powdering needs.

Cornstarch. Talc has been linked to cervical cancer, so if it's in the baby powder don't go that route. Also, I'd personally use the cornstarch because, hey, I don't want my sex toys smelling like babies ;p

Yes you should put powder on the inside as well; it will keep it from getting gummy and cracking prematurely

Talc is not recommended for much anymore because of concerns over asbestos contamination. If you want to turn cornstarch into baby powder take some and put a couple of spritzes of perfume on it.

I would recommend corn starch also. Baby power has some fragerance that might cause irritation.
