You can use Vaseline or I used HTB, just make sure you don't get the HTB on the Rubbers. :)

Copper grease. Won't perish rubber boots and is temp stable to 800 C(your average car will get nowhere near this temp...). Called Copease and is a little tin with brush in the lid.

I use Super Lube......it will still protect the metal slide pins/sleeves, if the boots get torn through sloppy installation of the disc pads.
I haven't had any problems with it, hasn't made the boots swell or anything like that.
