Organic Lube

2004-06-08 16:01:24.45095+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

An easily embarassed anonymous correspondent who said "If you use this I DO NOT WANT credit. :->" (and no, I won't hint) forwarded me a Press Release for "the World's First and Only Organic Personal Lubricant". Certified by CCOF, the product is Nudetm. We're pretty happy with Slippery Stuff, and lubes are a personal enough experience that I kinda doubt we'll be switching now that we've found one that really works, but I'm always into innovation in the marketplace.

We'd noticed issues with Astroglide and stopped using it, too much glycerin?

We never managed to track it back to a specific ingredient, so I'll bet that glycerin was one of the problems, but even when we went to a non-glycerin based lube there were other issues. I think I've addressed this several times before, so I probably need to go back and create went back and created a "Personal Lube" topic...

[Further edit: Of course I found no further useful recollections, nor did I find the note I could swore I linked at some point to Brad's endorsement of ID Millenium.]

Personally I haven't found anything that comes anywhere close to Oraganic, Raw Coconut Oil/Butter. Unlike most lubes, it's incredibly sensual to apply, smells fantastic, and tastes good to boot. It also works well for making stir frys...

We were thinking glycerin was the culprit, but after some investigation, I've discovered that astroglide (problem) and ID glide (no problem) have glycerin, propylene glycol and methyl paraben in common. While astroglide (problem) and the aloe lotion (problem) - we WERE at the beach, okay!?! - have in common propylene glycol, glycerin and propylparaben. So this points to propylparaben as the problem ingredient, no? "A crystalline ester C10H12O3 used as a preservative in pharmaceutical preparations." As an aside, Eros (no problem) lists only three ingredients; dimethicone, dimethiconol and cyclomethicone, but it stains linens. Eric, does the coconut oil/butter stain? The 'Nude' product claims not to. I'd be happy to try both and hopefully leave behind all the crazy ingredients.

The coconut oil/butter does not stain. But this isn't the same oil you get at the local healthfood store. It's much better. I gave meuon some to share with you. Let us know what you think!
