We’re all on the natural boat right? The one that says that you shouldn’t put anything ON your body that you wouldn’t put IN it (pun intended). The same goes for the products you use for your extra-curricular activities. Every part of our bodies should be treated with the same natural ingredients standards. Most popular mainstream lubricants contain questionable ingredients- parabens, petroleum, propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol, fragrance… the list goes on. For a more in depth look read this. We wouldn’t put this crap on any part of our bodies, let alone our precious nether regions!
Try these healthy, natural and safe alternatives, and have fun!
COCONUT OIL. Sweet, slippery and smells great- and it’s just one, whole, pure ingredient. Just make sure to use non-latex condoms because oil-based lubricants can degrade latex.
GOOD CLEAN LOVE. Vegan. Available in Naked and Cinnamon Vanilla. Once again, identifiable and safe ingredients.
Contains: Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Xanthan Gum, Agar, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors
SYLK. One of the most popular water based, 100% natural options. Though women who often have vaginal yeast infections may wish to avoid glycerin, as the sugar can encourage yeast growth.
Contains: Aqua (purified water), Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Plant Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Xanthan Gum, Vegetable Glycerine, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Citrate
One of our co-founders, Tara, put together a DIY Deodorant Workshop hosted by the Detox Market in Toronto, Canada. She shared valuable information about what kind of ingredients make for great deodorants, and how those ingredients work so your armpits can do their thing.
