Sliquid organics silk
Related to: 
I was about to get the Sliquid silk organics over the regular Sliquid organics...until I stumbled across a review that says that it's not entirely water-based. It's actually a water-silicone hybrid lube, but Eden has it listed solely as a water-based lube. I was intending to purchase it to use with my silicone toys (which has the possibility of warping the silicone toys), so I'm very grateful that someone thought to post the truth about this lube in their review.

I've noticed this, too. As far as I've know, the only hybrid lube that is listed as "silicone/water" is Wet Synergy. Anybody know why this is?

It says the base is silicone / water on the product page - or do you mean it's listed that way somewhere else?

*checks* So it does! Perhaps Eden needs a section for hybrid lubes to minimize confusion. And a few others (like Liquid Silk and Sliquid Silk) are still listed as only water-based. Granted, a look at the ingredients will reveal dimethicone, but the base should still be listed accurately.

Thanks so much for mentioning this, I was about to make the same mistake.

same thing with liquid silk, though I've used it on one silicone toy without issue.

That is concerning especially since alot of my silicone toys are higher end and I only use my water based lubes so I don't hurt them

So does that mean you can't use this lube on silicone toys?

Yes. Anything with silicone in it is a no-no for silicone toys.

I mentioned this to EF over a year ago. It's too bad that they never changed it.

That's not true. It just needs to be spot-tested first.


Also, by law, the companies manufacturing hybrids can claim they are water-based if the formula contains less than 10% silicone.

Unfortunately, that's true about the laws regarding labeling. It's even worse than that though, manufacturer's are not required to even list ingredients if they fall under a certain percentage of the whole formula, I think it's 1% or 2%. ALWAYS read the labels & even then, be skeptical.

Yep, yep. I think most things are fine in moderation, but if you're diving into pools of lube on a regular basis, I'd definitely understand the concern.

I never knew this. Guess I'd better check.

Thanks for the info I was not aware of this, I will be much more observant in my lube purchases from now on. Good looking out.
