You can still use silicone lube on metal, glass, wood, stone, ceramic and ABS plastic sex toys. How It's Made The base ingredient in silicone-based lube is polydimethylsiloxane or dimethicone a type of silicon which is derived from quartz, a mineral found naturally in the ground.
Dimethicone is the highest grade of silicone used in lubricant (also the priciest) and helps it stay velvety and a bit more viscous. Lubes with Dimethicone as the first ingredient also tend to have a better track record of playing well with premium silicone toys.

Some additives such as dimethyl silicone fluid or dimethicone, which you can find in most silicone personal lubricant, act as a filler. They do not contribute to a solid silicone’s structural integrity. Oil fillers can leak out of a solid material which is why some sex toys leave a grease stain when placed on paper or cloth.
A silicone toy like the O2, with extra soft silicone, may burn off some of the dimethicone – flaming a little and becoming sooty- but still not melting. So in other words if your silicone sex toy has any issues in your toybox, then it’s either not truly silicone or some rogue silicone lube from another toy got on it.
