Your sexual lubricant can affect your sexual health, so it’s important to choose it wisely. It can help you prevent all sorts of infections, or make you more vulnerable to them. That’s why, apart from looking at how well it glides, it’s important to check the list of ingredients so you can avoid putting any potential irritants near your vagina. Let’s have a closer look at Astroglide Personal Lubricant, to help you make your decision.
Name: Astroglide Personal Lubricant
Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Polyquaternium 15, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Compatible with latex condoms?: Yes
Sex toy friendly?: Yes
Pros: It’s a very popular lubricant because it does it’s job very well and it can be used with sex toys and latex condoms. On top of that, Astroglide is tasteless and odorless.
Cons: Some users complain that Astroglide can damage delicate clothes, so you have to be extra careful with it. Also, when I looked at the ingredient list I knew this wasn’t a vagina friendly lubricant:
Verdict: Although Astroglide Lubricant can help enhance your sexual life, its ingredients are not suitable for the delicate vaginal area, especially if you’re prone to infections.
There aren’t many all natural sexual lubricants on the market, and the ones I found come with some limitations (some cannot be used with latex condoms, for example). Some of the best options you can choose from are Coconu Lubricant and Sustain Premium Personal Lubricant.
Coconu is based on coconut oil, so it can naturally help you prevent vaginal yeast infections. It’s got only natural ingredients, but because it’s oil based it cannot be used with latex condoms and you have to use polyurethane ones instead. It’s not suitable to use on sex toys because it’s difficult to wash off. Most users are very happy with Coconu, however some complain that it’s not slippery enough. But the fact that it’s 100% natural and contains an antifungal ingredient, makes it one of my favorites.
Sustain Premium Personal Lubricant is water based, which means it’s condom and sex toy compatible. It’s got aloe vera, a natural antifungal ingredient which can help you prevent vaginal yeast infections. However it’s a bit expensive for the amount of lubricant you get and some users complain that it dries out too quickly. But water based lubricants always dry out faster then the silicone based ones.
