Parabens in Lubricant

Parabens are used in some lubricants as preservatives and to prevent growth of bacterias, which extends their use-by life. However, clinical studies conducted on parabens have found them to pose a risk of breast, testicular and ovarian cancers and contribute to a low sperm count. Parabens are also known to cause allergic reactions in some people, causing redness and discomfort which can be incredibly painful if the reaction is severe.

Astroglide Natural Lubricant

Passion8 Recommends

Astroglide Natural is perfect for those keen to avoid parabens and other chemical nasties in their lubricant. Astroglide Natural is naturally free from glycerin, parabens, alcohol, fragrance, flavourings and hormones and is made with a completely natural blend of natural and botanical ingredients made to work in perfect harmony with your body.

Glycerin in Lubricant

Glycerin is a sweet, syrupy alcohol often used as an ingredient in lubricants to make them extra slippery. For many people this slick texture is really important, but glycerin has its downsides. Due to its high sugar content it is a nutrient for Candida, the yeast responsible for thrush, meaning that lubricants containing glycerin are a no-no for those who are prone to UTIs and yeast infections.

Sliquid H2O Lubricant

Passion8 Recommends

Sliquid H2O is a natural intimate lubricant that's formulated to be free from parabens, glycerine and other chemical nasties. It's a completely natural formula that's purified water based and it's 100% vegan-friendly too. Sliquid is safe to use as an everyday vaginal moisturiser, and is safe for use with all types of toys and condoms. It's unflavoured, unscented, doesn't stain and is easy to clean up.

What About Traditional Lubricants?

While popular, traditional lubricants such as KY Jelly aren't always the most body-friendly. Critics point out that when products are applied to the vagina and anus, absorption is many times greater than things taken by mouth, therefore any lubricants that we use should be as natural and chemical-free as possible. These critics go on to point out that lubricants such as KY Jelly not only contain parabens and glycerine, but also glycols, which disrupt the natural balance of the cell walls, allowing these chemicals to penetrate through the skin into the blood stream. Natural and organic lubricants are the perfect way to avoid chemical nasties while keeping everything sliding beautifully.

Yes Lubricants

Passion8 Recommends

Yes Lubricant is a natural and organic body-friendly lubricant, that's hypoallergenic and vegetarian approved. There's no wonder it's won so many awards, including Natural and Organics Best Organic Bodycare of the year. Yes Lubricant is available in water-based, oil-based and even available in handy applicators to get the lube right to where you need it.

Use A Great Lubricant Every Time

To make sure your intimate moments are as pleasurable as they should be, it's important to use a good-quality lubricant every time. There's nothing worse than dry skin on dry skin; it can make sex not only difficult, but painful too.
