Lube: mostly everybody uses it, yet not too many people talk about it due to the clear stigma around sex in our culture. Lube is a fantastic way to enhance your intimate experiences with either yourself or a partner because let’s face it; sex does not feel good when things are a bit on the drier side. Now, we’ve been talking about clean beauty for our faces, but what about clean products for our genitalia, arguably one of the most delicate parts of our bodies? It’s important to enjoy moments of pleasure without throwing off your genitalia’s pH or introducing harmful ingredients to it like parabens, phthalates, and alcohols to the area of your divine energy. Here are some of our favorite lubes to use when indulging in self-love or steamy sessions with a partner.
This water-based formula is fragrance and synthetic flavor-free, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to take care of the space between your legs. This lubricant can be used with condoms and silicone toys.
Although this is not entirely a lube, it can certainly help those who experience winter dryness in the skin around their genitals. Soft and supple skin means less chafing and damage during sex, which is all one can ever hope for during a sexy candle-lit Friday night. Since this is an oil blend, this oil should not be used with condoms and silicone toys.
This aloe vera-based lube mimics the lubrication our bodies produce naturally. Sensitive skin people: you’ll want to grab a bottle of this––aloe vera is a soothing ingredient that helps calm down skin sensitivities.
