Welcome to the forum.

Take a look at Gunzilla (http://www.topduckproducts.com/). It is actually a cleaner, but like CLP, also has some lube properties. It is all vegetable oil-based and is non-toxic. No idea about flammability? Slip-2000 synthetic lube products have high flash points, but I have no clue about toxicity and they don't have an MSDS available for download on their site.

All I can tell is that the gun in the first image is wet and in the second appears dry. Is this a water repellent product, like Rain-X?

first pic is a wet gun, true statement. Note the corrosion on the flash suppressor (if you can't see it, my apologies). The suppressor was not treated with the froglube. In second pic, the same suppressor was treated with the froglube, again, apologies if you can't make out that it removed the corrosion.

I recently switched from using Breakfree CLP to SLIP 2000 on my AR's and have not experienced any issues or problems due to lubrication or lack thereof. SLIP is supposed to be non-toxic and that's the reason I switched.

Right, I'm trying to avoid petro chemicals on my guns; as a chemist described it, when you add heat to petroleum and dirt, you get tar. It's important for me to see the MSDS sheet along with the product advertising.

blue wonder is flammable and hazardous to breathing and contact with the skin.

I currently use Eezox exclusively.

It is the best product that I've ever tried for my guns. Mild smell, non-flammable, lube and cleaner.

As far as "non-toxic" and "green", well, you'll have to ask them about that part.

I have used Tetra grease on anything that slides and the oil on the rest. Pure synthetics and have served well.

Lucas makes a fully Synthetic Gun Oil simply called "Lucas Gun Oil". Says "Enviromentally Friendly" right on the bottle.
I have used it for several years when I seen a friend with an SKS go through a 30 round magazine in 20 seconds and his barrel wasn't smoking.
Very high flashpoint and is recommended for "machine guns", its also water resistant and odorless (important for hunters).

MSDS can be found Here http://www.lucasoil.com/images/medialibrary/EFCF935B325D161779D5B38F540DAC14.pdf

You can pick it up at any NAPA auto parts store, part # 10006
