Default Silicone lube from walmart

Normally, I buy all my stuff for airsoft online except for co2 cartridges.

I need lube for my airsoft guns, and I don't want to over pay and wait a week for it to get to my house.

If I were to get silicone lube, is there a specific type I should go for? I know I need to make sure it doesn't contain petroleum, but I just need some advice.

Thanks

100% silicone oil. I've heard RC shock oil works.

Just MAKE SURE you get 100% silicone.

What brand is it? At my local walmart they carry CRC Heavy Duty Silicone. I asked one of our local techs a good way to test this stuff before I used it. After my test this stuff left just enough doubt in my mind not to use it.

Crc heavy duty is good, orings soak it up, It's weird. Good for boreups or other orings you need to make bigger.

100% silicone is better though.

Code:
COMPONENT                    CAS NUMBER               % by Wt. 
Heptane isomers               various                   25 - 35 
Acetone                       67-64-1                   30 - 40 
Polydimethylsiloxane          63148-62-9                 2 - 5 
Liquefied petroleum gas       68476-86-8                25 - 35
It's only 2-5% silicone and tons of petroleum components and acetone.
