Materials and writing reviews.

Ok... Here's the thing.
I purchased a toy that is "UR3". On the package it says "PVC". Okay... I understand the material being essentially the same. Then the product also has "Sil-a-gel" listed on the box. Here's my question...
When I'm reviewing a product, how do I give an accurate description of the material when there are three listings on the package? All are correct in their own way. Should I just explain this in the review, or should I keep it short and sweet and list it as the product is listed on the site?
I am under the impression that sil-a-gel can be added to another material... Am I correct?

If that's the case, how can you tell exactly what material it is you're reviewing. I know these are silly questions, but I just want to make sure that I present the information correctly when I review a product.

Yes, Sil-A-Gel can be added to different materials. In this case I would write that it is UR3(UR3 is a mixture of PVC and silicone) with Sil-A-Gel. That way the reader will get the whole picture. (I like to link it like that)

Now here is the kicker, Sil-A-Gel can be used with silicone lubes were UR3 can not. I am not sure how adding Sil-A-Gel to UR3 makes it usable with silicone lubes. (I am currently testing this) Manufactures change their formulas from time to time and EF does not always catch the change. You can also look to the manufactures web site for more info. So in this case you go with whats on the package.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the suggestion! I do understand about what the product is made of. I knew the sil-a-gel was added. I just... Didn't know how to present it without confusing the reader. That does seem like a short and simple way to put it without getting long-winded, though. Thank you so much.
If you do find out about the lube compatibility, let me know! I'm very interested. My assumption is that ANYTHING with a silicone mix cannot be used, but I'm no expert.

No problem.

I am putting together a workshop on lube/material compatibility, so when I am done everyone will get to see the results.
