AKA Silicone Grease. Non-conductive, water repellant, moderate to poor lubrication qualities. Used on battery terminals and to seal electrical plugs. I use vaseline as silicone greases are a pain to remove whereas vasseline washes off with any solvent/meths.

 

Most car accesory shops sell it as battery terminal grease - possibly even Halfords.

 

Maplins sell spray silicone grease, which is a good lube for plastic coated bowden cables, when used with a cable oiler.
