Health is important, especially when it comes to sensitive and vulnerable parts of the body. The wrong hygiene products can not only mess up your pH levels, but they can cause sensitivity, discomfort, and even pretty serious infections.
Since sex organs are susceptible to several different problems if improperly taken care of, the products and ingredients that come even close to that region of the body should be individually vetted. That includes body wash, soap, shaving products, period products, and of course, lube.
Everyone who is sexually active or individually experimenting should be asking themselves what lube is healthiest, what toys are safest, and other similar questions before use. Fortunately, we’re doing some of the heavy lifting by diving into our products a little deeper today.
Organic Lube Is the Best Lube for Your Body
There may be some controversy surrounding natural, organic products and their efficacy, but in terms of sexual health and wellness, organic lube is by far the healthiest and safest lube option on the market. After all, Coconu is the better-for-you lube, but don’t just take our word for it.
Natural vs. Organic
Remember, the term “organic” can only be used on products that are grown and produced without pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Products that host the USDA Organic seal are produced under the high standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. However, there is no legal definition of what the term “natural” means. Natural foods can include organic foods—but not all natural foods are organic. Look for products with the USDA Organic seal, and you’ll be making the right choice for your health and the environment.
The Ingredients Don’t Lie
Simply because something reads “natural” or “organic” doesn’t immediately green-light it for use. Alyssa Dweck, MD, a gynecologist in New York, spoke with Women’s Health Magazine and suggested that readers avoid petroleum jelly and mineral oil, for example, as they can increase your risk of developing bacterial vaginosis or other vaginal infections.
Instead, keep an eye out for products like Coconu that feature coconut oil, aloe vera, or vitamin E. Plus, our products don’t contain any alcohol, petroleum, parabens, gluten, phylates, fragrances, or dyes. We keep it simple around here because sex should be a stress-free, satisfactory experience.
The Best Organic Lube Is Transparent
Think of it like consent.
Consensual sex means everyone is on the same page; there’s communication and understanding. How often do we think about what we consume and enjoy in terms of consent?
Informed, educated choices are important, especially when it comes to sex and intimacy. You should know everything about what goes into—and onto—your body. Beyond awareness, you should actively look at the ingredients in your lube and confirm with yourself that you’re okay with their presence. (Don’t brush this off—it’s important.) Know what each ingredient does, why it’s there, how it could affect you, etc. Soon, it’ll become second nature to recognize the unnecessary ingredients on a label or the marketing ploys on the box.
Regardless of how you use our products, you know 100% what goes into them, and therefore, what might go into you. That’s important to us.
Organic Lube Keeps the Planet and Environment in Mind
As a good rule of thumb, if an ingredient is considered safe for the body, it’s typically just as safe for the planet. Out of respect for our environment, we use plant-based, non-GMO ingredients at Coconu. Not only are our products USDA-certified organic whenever possible, but we also use plastic-free product packaging made in the U.S. from sugar cane.
We’re proud of the certifications we’ve earned on our products. In addition to being the first USDA-organic lube, our water-based lube is also vegan, and all of our products are 100% edible. Enjoy!
Use Organic Lube for Other Means Besides Pleasure
We want to highlight two more aspects of our organic lube:
1) It’s hypoallergenic and specifically designed to protect and moisturize sensitive tissues.
2) In addition to being a silky, stimulating lubricant, our water-based formula doubles as a vaginal moisturizer, and our oil-based formula can be a perfect massage oil.
Our products are good for more than just one intended use—if you’re into that.
Excite and motivate your body in a healthy, safe way with Coconu.
