Fleshlight Renewing Powder is an indispensable part of your favorite stroker’s care kit because it helps to keep the SuperSkin’s material in tip-top shape — and the rumors are true: it is 100% pure cornstarch.

Key Takeaways:

  • Fleshlight Renewing Powder (also known as Renewal Powder) helps keep the SuperSkin sleeve fresh between uses.
  • Fleshlight powder is really easy to apply — simply sprinkle it onto the pocket pussy’s orifice and work it downward through the sleeve, massaging it a bit or using your fingers as needed.
  • Fleshlight Renewing Powder is just cornstarch and yes — you can use that instead.

Taking care of your Fleshlight is just as easy as using it and one of the most important parts of its long-term maintenance is Fleshlight Renewing Powder.

But what does this magic powder for Fleshlights do and what is it made of?

More importantly, can you use something else in a pinch if you haven’t bought Fleshlight Renewing Powder?

(The answer is yes.)

Fleshlight’s Renewing Powder keeps your SuperSkin sleeve feeling brand new with only a thin layer after a few uses, and it’s applied after cleaning and drying your Fleshlight.

Here’s how to use Renewing Powder effectively:

  • After enjoying your Fleshlight, remove the SuperSkin sleeve
  • Wash and dry the sleeve thoroughly
  • When fully dry, sprinkle the Renewing Powder on the outside and inside the sleeve in a thin, even layer
  • Use your hands and fingers to ensure even coverage inside and out
  • Put your Fleshlight back in its case and store it in a cool, dry place

The Renewal Powder will not only remove any lingering moisture but also keep the sleeve feeling silky smooth.

You don’t need to use this after every single wash, but powdering your Fleshlight after every few uses is fine.

Is Fleshlight Renewing Powder Really Just Cornstarch?

You might be wondering if Fleshlight’s Renewal Powder is just cornstarch in a more expensive package and the answer is yes — it is.

100%, as noted on the product’s label.

But that isn’t a bad thing, nor is it a scam of any kind.

Cornstarch is incredibly versatile and used in myriad ways to fight moisture.

(Ask anyone who has worked in a professional kitchen whether or not they have ever sprinkled a bit of cornstarch on their nethers to fight chafing — I bet they’re gonna say “yes.”)

You can use regular cornstarch to maintain your Fleshlight’s material, but I would argue that buying the Renewal Powder will keep the starch you use for cooking separate from the powder you reach for after sexy playtime.

If you do choose to use standard cornstarch to maintain your Fleshlight, I would recommend not keeping it in the kitchen to avoid any possible food contamination.

A good solution if you’re on a budget?

Buy the Fleshlight Renewing Powder once, and then simply refill the container with store-bought cornstarch over time.

The container sold by Fleshlight does offer easy application — especially compared to boxes or bags regular cornstarch might come in.

That’s reason enough to buy it once, just for the bottle.

Closing Thoughts

Renewal Powder is an excellent tool for keeping your Fleshlight feeling like new but it really is 100% pure cornstarch in a cool-looking bottle.

That doesn’t mean you’re getting ripped off if you buy the branded powder because the container does make application easier — plus it keeps the cornstarch used for your Fleshlight away from potential food contamination.

If you want a more affordable alternative, however, you can grab a box of cornstarch from your local grocer and achieve the same result — a well-maintained Fleshlight — with perhaps a little more mess involved.
