I've found nothing gimmicky with Froglube and have been using it for a few months now with great results when applied properly.
It protects physically, not so much chemically. A PHYSICAL barrier is what it creates. If you are using it as a protectant, put it on THICK! I failed to do this initially testing it. Subsequently, it has done very well when applied properly for storage.
Froglube mixes and plays just fine with petrochemicals--the CLP contains about 50% petrochemicals in the form of PAO. Don't sweat about alcohol and all that, just change the weapon over to it, if you want. No magic here.
Froglube really does keep carbon from sticking--but equally as important, when FL burns off, it does NOT leave any ash or coked deposits behind.
To me gimmicky would be using a synthetic motor oil but different strokes for different folks.
It goes on most of my guns, to include my Sig MK25 226 and I reapply after about 200 rds fired.
