What is vaginal dryness?
Vaginal dryness is a common complaint of many women, which leaves the entrance and the inside of the vagina feeling sore or itchy. It can make intercourse uncomfortable or painful or make you need to urinate more frequently.
Several factors can contribute to vaginal dryness, but most commonly it is the result of an imbalance of your hormones.
Vaginal dryness can be caused by:
- The menopause
- Hormonal contraceptives
- Having a hysterectomy
If you are unsure what is causing you to have vaginal dryness you should discuss this with a doctor.
How does Sylk work?
Sylk is different from many other intimate moisturisers and lubricants because it uses a plant-based, natural product from New Zealand, kiwi vine gum, to provide the vagina with hydration that feels like it was created by your own body, while also maintaining its essential pH.
Kiwi vine gum is an odourless, non-greasy, non-sticky product that is both naturally slippery and smooth, which makes it an ideal substance to replicate the fluid that is made by the vagina.
Sylk and condoms
Sylk is condom and sex-toy friendly and because it is a non-greasy formula you don’t have to worry about this product staining bed sheets or clothes.
- Do not use it if the seal is broken before first use.
- This product is not a contraceptive.
- Keep out of reach of children.
Sylk & pregnancy
Pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can be a contributing factor to vaginal dryness. Because Sylk is a plant-based, natural product, unlike other vaginal moisturisers it is, therefore, safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
How to use Sylk
Sylk Intimate Moisturiser is for use inside and around the entrance of the vagina to add moisture and lubrication or applied to the end of a tampon to make the insertion easier.
Sylk can be purchased as either a 40g bottle or as 6 single-use applicators.
If you are using Sylk from the bottle:

If you are using the single-dose applicators:
- Snap off the end of the applicator.
- Insert the narrow end into the vagina and squeeze gently. Each applicator contains 5 ml of Sylk, which may be more than some women need.
- Remove the applicator and discard applicator after use.
