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
