What is “Cyberskin”?
Cyberskin is a thermoplastic material that is used to make very realistic sex toys, As the name suggests, cyberskin feels and looks like actual human skin, and its realistic feel make it the perfect material for sex toys such as vibrators and dildos.
Cyberskin was invented alongside the creation of sex toys that imitate a real vagina. Created by mixing silicone and PVC together, cyberskin enables a very erotic and stimulating experience once it comes into contact with the user’s genitalia.
Cyberskin material is also alternatively referred to as ‘Real-Feel’.
Due to the materials and components that make up cyberskin, it is extremely sensitive to touch and heat, that when exposed to friction gets warmed up in an instant.
Not only is cyberskin a close-feel to actual human skin. It is also flexible and elastic. It can bend without breaking, enabling intense sexual stimulation for the user.
Dos and Don’ts
Cyberskin toys and products should be replaced every 5 months.
Since cyberskin is also made of silicone, it is best to apply water-based lubricants only on sex toys made of cyberskin. Oli-based lubricants will only damage cyberskin sex toys.
Practicing proper care and maintenance for the cyberskin is also a must. Washing cyberskin toys and products after use using anti-bacterial soap and keeping it in a cool, dry place are among the basic cleaning steps that help maintain the product’s quality. Cyberskin products likewise need to be treated with cornstarch after washing.
This helps prevent the cyberskin from acquiring external damages and wear and tear brought by exposure to human genital secretions and other factors in the surroundings that could be detrimental to the product or toy’s material.
Keep an eye for any discoloration on the product. Discoloration implies that molds or impurities are building up and therefore the product needs to be replaced. Putting on a condom on the cyberskin product when using it protects its quality and preserves its shelf life.
