I have used white lightning before. Its a bike chain lube but it seems to work good on these zippers. You can also use candle wax. Candle was is good and easier to apply the white lightning which is a mess until you get the hang of it.

I prefer to make my own, or my wife helps.

zipper lube, not tube lube dude....

Use candle wax preferably real bees wax. Works great, we use it at work to lube zippers, never had trouble and it's not messy at all.

Any tips on application?

You just rub it on. Pretty easy, you'll figure it out.

Old military trick my dad showed me works great is to use a bar of soap. Take soap lightly rub on zipper and it works great.

I use the Mopar zipper clean and Lube. Works well. I have also used candle wax and soap.

Go to any "Marine" store/shop and pick up a tube of zipper lube. Costs about $8 and works great.
