Natural Sexual Lubricants Review
Natural Sexual Lubricants Review
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:
- Petroleum Jelly
- Propylene glycol
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.
Coconu Organic Personal Lubricant Review
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 ingredient, so apart from lubricating, it will help you prevent vaginal yeast infections. It’s tasteless, odorless and edible which makes it many couples’ 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.

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.

Organic Glide All Natural Personal Lubricant Review
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.

Checking the ingredient list on a sexual lubricant before purchase is very important. Some ingredients found in most lubricants can prove irritating and toxic and they may trigger vaginal infections.
Before buying a lubricant, make sure you read the label and choose a product that contains only natural ingredients. Some of them, such as coconut oil and aloe vera, can even help you prevent vaginal infections and serve as a vaginal moisturizer.
Have you used any of these lubricants? I’d love to hear about your experiences. Please share in the comment section below.
Do you know if triglycerides, diglycerides and monoglycerides (in a vaginal suppository) can cause yeast infections like glycerine?
Hi Shelah, as opposed to glycerine, glycerides don’t contain alcohol and according to studies they are not toxic and they don’t cause skin irritation so they are not considered a yeast infection trigger.
I used shea butter cream as lubricant and my partner got a vaginal infection how could that be, is shea butter not a suitable lubricant?
Hello, shea butter is an excellent natural lubricant, it’s also got a soothing and antimicrobial effect and I haven’t found any information about shea butter causing yeast infection. Perhaps your partner suffered a mild allergic reaction to shea butter? It’s best to see a doctor to check if she’s actually suffering from a yeast infection or if it’s something different. Good luck!
I didn’t know that sexual lubricants could give me a yeast infection. I could never figure out why I was getting them, but perhaps changing my intimate wash and using a natural lubricant will make a difference. Thanks for this article!
Hi Bryana, thanks for commenting. I hope the information you find in my posts will help you get rid of vaginal yeast infections for good. All the best!
Hi, I’ve tried Coconu and it works fine, you just have to re-apply it from time to time before it dries out. I didn’t realize it had antifungal properties, good to know!
Thanks for commenting Lino. I think Coconu is one of the best options for those looking for 100% natural sexual lubricants.
Hey, thanks for this review. When I look at other reviews of lubricants I see that the 100% natural ones don’t perform as well as the synthetic ones. Which one of those you recommend do you think performs best?
Hi Rayna. I would say Coconu is the best option. It’s got loads of positive reviews and yes, it dries out faster than synthetic lubricants, but it seems to perform better than other natural lubricants.
