PS The absolute BEST zipper lubricant I have found for drysuit zippers is a product called "Fluid Film". It is a non-solvent wax/petroleum based material that comes in an aerosol can, and is specially formulated for marine use. I have used it for years on my old Northern Diver suit with no ill effects at all on the zipper, the zipper tape, or the crushed neoprene, other than some slight discoloration on the zipper protection flap. (The entire suit is badly faded anyway, so a little discoloration is not a big thing!) This stuff is great!
It is not easy to find in stores; check out the manufacturer's website for a retail source near you: http://www.eurekafluidfilm.com/.
