Why water-based lubricant?

Water-based lubricant is a popular choice because it is safe to use with condoms and sex toys made of all materials, including silicone, latex, and rubber. It also doesn't dry out quickly, which means it lasts longer than some other types of lubricants. Additionally, water-based lubricant is easy to clean and remove, making it a convenient choice for both solo and partner play. It can also be beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it doesn't contain irritating chemicals that some other lubricants may have.

What are the benefits of water-based lubricant?

There are several advantages of water-based lubricant, including:

  1. Safety: Water-based lubricant is safe to use with all types of condoms and sex toys, regardless of the materials they are made of. It can also be easily washed off and does not stain.

  2. Easy availability: Water-based lubricant is readily available at pharmacies, drugstores, online stores, and other retailers. It is also affordable and often sold in convenient travel-sized bottles.

  3. No odor or taste: Water-based lubricant usually doesn't have added fragrance or flavor, making it a good choice for people who are sensitive to scents or tastes.

  4. No skin irritation: Water-based lubricant is hypoallergenic and rarely causes skin irritation. This makes it a suitable option for individuals with sensitive skin or allergies.

  5. Long-lasting: Water-based lubricant doesn't dry out quickly and has a long-lasting formula, making it ideal for prolonged sexual activity or the use of sex toys.

  6. Easy to clean: Water-based lubricant is easy to clean and doesn't leave residue on the skin or clothing. This makes it a practical choice for everyday use.

What are the drawbacks of water-based lubricant?

There are also some disadvantages associated with the use of water-based lubricant, including:

  1. Can dry out quickly: Water-based lubricant typically dries out faster than other types of lubricants, which may require you to apply more during sexual activity.

  2. Can feel sticky: Some water-based lubricants can feel sticky and leave a tacky sensation on the skin or toys. This can be uncomfortable during sex.

  3. Not suitable for water play: Water-based lubricant is less suitable for sexual activities in water, such as in a bath or under the shower, as it easily washes away and loses its slickness.

  4. May contain preservatives: Water-based lubricant sometimes contains preservatives to prevent bacteria, which can be a disadvantage for individuals sensitive to certain chemicals. Our 100% natural lubricant doesn't contain synthetic preservatives and is suitable for people with sensitive skin.

  5. Not always suitable for anal sex: Anal sex may require more lubricant than other sexual activities, and water-based lubricant can dry out faster. If you prefer a natural lubricant, you could try an oil-based lubricant, such as coconut oil. Please note that it's not suitable for the vulva.

The choice is yours.

Our preference is for a lubricant based on natural ingredients that are good for you and the environment. However, it's up to you and/or your partner to determine what works best. It's important to remember that the advantages and disadvantages of water-based lubricant depend on your personal preferences and individual circumstances. It can be helpful to try different types of lubricants to determine which one works best for you.
