      About Cork
      Cork is a wood product and as such needs special treatment. Your cork will last longer, remain supple and will not peel, chip or disintegrate if treated properly. Traditional "cork grease" is a petroleum based product that clogs the pores, fine structure and over time reduces the corks ability to absorb moisture, compress and rebound, ultimately leads to disintegration of the cork itself and leads to loosening the glue holding the cork on the tenon. The Idea behind the product
      The idea for the product came during a visit to Italy and Emperor Hadrian's Villa outside Rome. Clay jars containing olive oil were found in perfect condition - including their contents - after 1500 years. The jars were sealed with native corks which appeared to be in wonderful condition, covered with bees wax and pine resin. How does it work?
      We all know that cork needs to maintain a certain moisture content to remain soft and supple from the wine industry where bottles are stored upright and the cork becomes brittle and cracks when you insert a corkscrew. In order to make the product fulfill it's job of smoothly lubricating the cork we were fortunate to get some great advice from an old Asian herbalist that suggested we use a special extract of the Slippery Elm Tree Bark. It worked so well that we call this additional ingredient - Nature's Teflon(TM). With Nature's Teflon(TM) the product is an ideal cork treatment which is slippery but not greasy, sticky, or smelly and is kind to cork.

      • It's Cork Grease

      Comments about The Doctor's Products Doctor Slick Cork Treatment:

      I've been using my new professional clarinet for five months now and the sections still fit rather tight. It takes an effort to twist together, adjust and take apart. I expected this product to provide a fit that would make the joints slide better and be easier to fit together and pull apart. The product is advertised as "slippery" but is no more so than other cork grease I've been using.

          Comments about The Doctor's Products Doctor Slick Cork Treatment:

          I was attracted to this cork grease because it's all natural & has no toxic ingredients. I especially like that the grease over extends the tube, into the cap, so I feel like I've really gotten my money's worth. The grease works, though I don't feel that I'm using less of it, as claimed in the advertisement. I haven't used it long enough to know if it will keep my corks in good conditioned, as claimed.
