i use silicone tap lubricant, Bought from a plumbers merchant, it's
non greasy, waterproof and very slippery. It comes in a tube so you
don't get over spray.

WD40 is probably a bit messy, bees wax is what they sell in dive shops
to lubricate dry suit zips so that should be ok, but best might be
silicon spray, spray it onto a cloth and wipe it along the zip track,
works wonders on curtain rails, sticky electric windows etc.

You can get Zip Lubricant.

I have in the past lubricated zips by running a candle along them.
