Kiwi fruit lubricant to be prescribed

  • Comment

A lubricant product developed from kiwi fruit vine has been added to the NHS Drug Tariff Part IX and is therefore available on prescription.

SYLK, a natural personal lubricant, is made from an extract of the kiwi fruit vine and is hormone free. The product is greaseless, non-sticky and does not stain, according to its manufacturer, also called SYLK Limited.

The product has been endorsed by the National Forum of Gynaecology Oncology Nurses for use with vaginal dilators following pelvic radiotherapy.
