Safe sex to be exact. And even more specifically, non-toxic safe sex.
Your coochie zone is the last place you wanna be putting chemicals, and if you’re in the habit of using conventional lubes and intimate care products, it’s time to stop.
Here are some evil toxic ingredients that you’ll find in most typical lubes: BHTm BNPD Disodium EDTA, Butylene Glycor, Carbomer 981, Imidazolidinyl Urea (aka animal pee-pee!), PEGs, Propylene, Propylparaben… I could go on and on, but I’m already freakin’ myself out!
My favorite part of reviewing lubes and intimate care goodies is that I get to … well, research and test these products out extensively. It’s a tough life, being a beauty blogger, but someone’s gotta do it (no pun intended).
Moving on… let’s talk about organic, healthy, natural lubes. I recently tried a line of natural, vegan intimate care products by Blossom Organics. All of their products (which are formulated by women for women) are Sunny & VBR-approved i.e. no parabens, petrochemicals, silicones, alcohol, hormones, pesticides, artificial dyes, flavors or colorings.
Natural Moisturizing Lubricant ($10.99): This water-based lube is fantastic. A+ Seriously, it’s consistency (which is smooth and light—not goopy or thick) is indistinguishable from conventional lubes but sans the nasty ingredients.
If you wanna kick it up a notch, you ought to try their Warm Sensation Moisturizing Lubricant ($11.99): This lube is also water-based and adds a nice cooling/warm (aka tingly) touch during sexy time. Wanna kick things up a couple more notches? Have your sugary sweet stud muffin blow on your skin after it’s applied; you’ll be in tingle heaven. Fancy stuff, I tell ya. A++
Warm Sensation Oil ($15.99): I was hoping this was going to be tingly like the Warm Sensation Lube but it wasn’t. It’s has a very pretty (cinnamon-y, floral, herb-y) scent, and it makes my skin feel amazing. This would be great for all-over body massages.
Pure Pleasure Arousal Gel ($16.99): With a name like that, it’s hard to not want to try this one! If you’re a fan of tingleys (can’t image who isn’t), this a is must. It’s not sticky, it’s light and it smells nice. Just follow the directions and enjoy!
And I can’t stress how simple and natural these ingredients are:
Arousal Gel Ingredients: Organic aloe barbadensis leaf extract, glycerin, hydroxyethylcellulose, sorbitol, arginine, niacin (vitamin B3), organic plant oils of rosa canina (rose hip) & oenothera biennis (evening primrose), ethylhexylglycerin, organic mentha piperita (peppermint) essential oil, organic extracts of paeonia albiflora (peony) root & passiflora incarnata flower.
Now, I know you’re probably like: “Need these NOW , where can I get them?” Blossom Organics products are now available through www.goodvibes.com (and in Good Vibrations stores) and will soon be available through Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacies and other intimate boutiques and web retailers—stay tuned.
