I’ve written about this before in detail. If you’d like to learn more about the importance of lubrication and the pros and cons about the different types, just click here to be taken to a previous article.
Since writing that article however, I learned that while my previously favourite lube (F*ck Water … had to get it just for the name 😉 ) contains no glycerin or parabens, it does contain propylene glycol (which can be made from animals or petroleum sources) and another alcohol which can be irritating. Considering how sensitive vaginal skin can be, I like to err on the side of caution. There are, however, far worse products on the market.
This article is to talk about a specific lubricant that I carry called Hathor Aphrodiasia. There are a number of good, clean lubes on the market.
This is not the only good quality lube that I have in my arsenal but it’s the one I use and LOVE it! So whether you purchase your lube through me or elsewhere, these are the important things to watch for:
- Water based
- Eco-friendly (tube is 100% biodegradable)
- 7 botanical ingredients including Horny Goat Weed (you can find out more about horny goat weed in this article)
- Gylcerin Free
- Paraben Free
- Petroleum Free
- 100% Vegan
- Condom and toy compatible
- Available in 4 oz and 8 oz tubes
- Made in Canada!
