Whiteline KDT922 (Subframe Bushing Inserts) Grease - Safe to use on Rubber?

So I installed these today but am wondering about the grease that comes packaged with the bushings.

I noticed that Whiteline included grease which is a Lithium base complex grease with moly additive (really just marine grease or multi purpose grease you can get at the hardware store).

Quoting straight from Whiteline's website - "The supplied grease has been formulated from a reinforced No. 2 lithium complex base and selected additives with molybdenum disulphide for mechanical stability extreme pressure qualities for extended life and a high melting or drop point of 230C minimum."

Since the Whiteline poly bushings make direct contact with the stock rubber bushing, is this grease safe to use on rubber?

Now that they are installed, I am worried it may dry out the stock bushings causing them to crack. I can't find any definitive information that it is safe to use on rubber.
