SYLK: A Giveaway!


The world is abundant in enticing fruits, but the kiwi is at the top of my list. And so I was pleased when  SYLK offered Friend for the Ride a generous giveaway. Thanks, SYLK!

  • SYLK is the only all-natural moisturizing lubricant made from New Zealand kiwifruit vine extract. What is so special about this proprietary ingredient is that the kiwi vine extract is composed of polysaccharides, which gives SYLK its film-like consistency, very similar in texture to the body’s natural lubrication, without being sticky.
  • Moreover, the kiwi vine extract mirrors vaginal pH. SYLK is pH balanced so it will not upset the delicate pH balance of the vagina. This is particularly important because an imbalance in vaginal pH can cause irritation and infections such as bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections.
  • The proprietary kiwi vine extraction process is also bio-sustainable. The kiwifruits are harvested from the vine, and the vines are usually disposed of. However, SYLK uses the kiwi vine extract as the differentiating ingredient in its moisturizing personal lubricant.After that, the remnants are used back in the orchards as mulch.

Vaginal dryness is not uncommon. In the United States, 64 million women are of menopausal age, in which half experience vaginal dryness. Moreover, there are over 300 medications that can cause vaginal dryness along with numerous medical and life conditions such as the postpartum period, diabetes, auto immune diseases, etc. Adding a moisturizing lubricant can increase comfort daily and for intimacy. Even if vaginal dryness is not a factor, 74% of Americans consider lubricants as a sexual enhancer, according to Durex Global Sex Survey.
