Mamas – if you don’t already have a personal lubricant in your cupboard – you will someday. Pregnancy, nursing, contraceptives, menopause and some medications can make it a necessity. I had no idea how many natural lubricants there are out there at all price points so you have no excuse not to have a safe one 🙂
Like all personal care products, make sure you pick one up that doesn’t contain the yucky stuff – in this case, estrogen-mimicking parabens, glycerin (can cause yeast infections particularly in women prone to them), phenoxyethanol, and propylene glycol (causes irritation). Also remember that just because a product markets itself as ‘natural’ doesn’t mean it is so always check the ingredients!
Paraben and Irritant Free:
- Isabel Fay Natural Water Based Lubricant
- Wet Naturals
- Ocean Sensuals The Natural
- Velvet Natural
- Intimate Organics
- Firefly Organics
- Good Clean Love
A few to avoid as they may say ‘natural’ but they contain parabens:
- Astroglide All Natural
- K-Y Natural Feeling
