Sexual lubricants can enhance your sexual satisfaction and make sex more comfortable both for you and your partner. However your choice of lubricant can affect your sexual health, so it’s really important to find products with 100% natural ingredients. There are many sexual lubricants on the market which contain compounds that can cause skin irritation and make you more vulnerable to vaginal infections. If you are prone to getting either vaginal yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis you should avoid the following ingredients when choosing a sexual lubricant:
To make the choice easier for you, I’ve come up with a list of 3 natural sexual lubricants that you can safely use, minimizing the risk of getting an infection or skin irritation.
Ingredients: Sunflower Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Canola Oil, Kukui Seed Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Tocopherol (Non-GMO, Natural antioxidant)
Compatible with latex condoms?: No, polyurethane condoms instead.
Sex toy friendly?: No
Pros: I like the fact that they are using coconut oil. It is a natural antifungal ingredients, so apart from lubricating it will help you prevent vaginal yeast infections. It’s tasteless, odorless and edible which makes it many couple’s favorite sexual lubricant.
Cons: Several users complain that it doesn’t provide as much glide as conventional lubricants. Also, coconut oil is not compatible with latex, which means can’t be used with traditional latex condoms, you should only use it with polyurethane condoms instead.
Ingredients: Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Xanthan Gum, Agar, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Lactic Acid, Natural flavors
Compatible with latex condoms?: Yes
Sex toy friendly?: Yes
Pros:It contains aloe vera, which is a natural antifungal and will help you prevent vaginal yeast infections. It’s water based, so you can safely use it with all sorts of sex toys, especially silicone toys.
Cons: It’s a bit expensive for the size and some users complain that it dries out quickly.
Ingredients: Vegetable Oil, Olive Fruit Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Pichia/ Resveratol Ferment Extract
Compatible with latex condoms?: No, use polyurethane condoms instead.
Sex toy friendly?: No
Pros: This all natural glide is a good lubricant for women suffering from vaginal dryness. Its natural ingredients provide long lasting moisture to delicate tissues making sex more pleasurable.
Cons: Some users complain that it doesn’t provide enough lubrication and its consistency is too thick. Also the fact that it advertises as a probiotic product but doesn’t contain any probiotics at all makes it my least favorite choice.
