Lubido Original Water Based Paraben Free Intimate Gel Lube - 250ml
About this deal
This water-based lube comes in little pods that are perfect for individual use. It’s also hormone-, paraben-, glycerin-, fragrance-, and petrochemical-free. “Hormone-free is always the way to go,” Dr. Wider says. “You don’t want anything you are using in or on your body to mimic hormones.” Parabens are chemical preservatives widely used by pharmaceutical and cosmetic producers. The most common ones are prefixed by ethyl, methyl, heptyl, butyl and propyl or they are shortened to ‘E’ numbers. Less common parabens include isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben and benzylparaben and they’re sodium salts.

Personal lubricants are used on—and in—the most intimate parts of your body, so it makes sense that you'd want to explore the best natural lubes available. Especially if you're taking a cue from your beauty routine, which may have become “cleaner” now that brands are being increasingly transparent about their ingredients list. While the type of lube you choose is based on personal preference, being as body-safe as possible is priority number one when testing out new intimate products and sex toys. What is natural lube, exactly?We updated this article in June 2023 to add more information about each featured product, based on extensive research done by our team. Sliquid is an organic, unscented, water-based lube that is free of glycerin and parabens. It also contains vitamin E, which can be a helpful, nourishing ingredient that combats vaginal dryness, says Dr. Shepherd. The neat thing about natural lube is that you can technically use ingredients you might already have in your kitchen (although it's best to start with a new bottle if you plan on using it as a personal lubricant). You can get any kind of plant-based oil (such as coconut, vitamin E, and olive oil) online or at specialty stores, where you can find high-quality, organic stuff. “Just be sure you’re buying oil-based plant oils that are 100% organic and 100% pure,” Gigi Engle, certified sex coach, sex educator, and Womanizer sex expert, tells Glamour.

Made from 100% natural, organic ingredients, this personal lubricant is pH-balanced and aloe-based for a hydrating way to naturally increase moisture and enhance your experience. Plus, it’s completely vegan, cruelty-free, and washes away easily with warm water. Opt for a water-based lube: If you plan to use a condom, go for water-based lubricants (which are generally non-irritating) instead of oils. “Oil-based lubricants can degrade latex, causing small holes and making them less effective at preventing pregnancy and STIs,” says Dr. Braaten. There are also silicone-based lubes, which can be a bit more irritating and don’t work well with silicone sex toys. Natural lube is considered to be lube that's free from harsh chemicals and is made from natural ingredients, such as nut oils and aloe leaf juice.If you'd rather go the aloe vera route, Engle recommends Maude's Shine Organic lube. She says, “It's very pure and natural and also compatible with condoms.” The 100% natural lube is super hydrating, and its pH-balanced formula doesn't have no-no ingredients like glycerin and parabens. It can also be used with all toys, including silicone (which is a problem that some run into when using silicone lube, as it can deteriorate silicone toys). This natural, water-based personal lubricant is free of fragrances, dyes, glycerin, and parabens. Plus, it has an easy-to-use pump and testers love how long it lasts (not to mention, the classy, discreet label).
