Q: What is in Slippy?

A: It is a powder concentrate for a water based lubricant.  It is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and easy to use.  Slippy has a benign taste and smell. 


Q: How do I prepare Slippy from the powder?

A: Fill a 2 litre plastic water bottle with 1 litre of clean water and add 2 teaspoons of Slippy powder or 9 grams if you have a scale that can measure that.  Shake for about 30 seconds until water starts to appear viscous.  It is now ready to use.  But if you need less, use less, if you need more, use more.  It is versatile in the way that the user decides the lubrication (s)he needs.


Q: What does Slippy contain?

A: The final mixture is 99.1% water of your own choosing.  What you get in the concentrate is pharma grade polyethylene glycol and food grade dispersants and a buffer.  All of these are originally meant for human ingestion sourced from Western Europe and no compromise will be made on that.
