As the spring ushers in a sense of renewal and rejuvenation, our thoughts naturally turn towards the age-old tradition of spring cleaning and refreshing. It's a season that invites us to declutter our surroundings, breathe new life into our spaces, and embrace a fresh start. However, amidst the ritual of tidying up our homes, we often overlook a crucial aspect – our personal care routine.

Spring provides the ideal backdrop to evaluate and revamp the products we use on our bodies. Beyond the physical cleaning of our living spaces, it's essential to take stock of what we expose ourselves to daily. Surprisingly, many conventional personal care items contain harmful toxins: a staggering 98% of products available in today's market contain at least one toxic ingredient. 

At Coconu, clean ingredients are a top priority. We believe in the power of clean ingredients to nourish and revitalize your body. Our personal lubricants are crafted with integrity, free from harmful toxins and chemicals like alcohol, glycerin, petroleum, parabens, phthalates, fragrances and dyes. We use organic ingredients like coconut oil, sunflower oil, shea butter and cocoa butter to prioritize your health and wellness, ensuring that every Coconu product meets the highest standards of purity and safety.

This spring, we invite you to join us on a journey towards embracing clean beauty and cultivating self-care rituals that elevate your overall well-being. Experience the difference of Coconu's clean personal care products and indulge in the goodness of nature. Let's embark on this wellness adventure together, inspiring healthier choices and paving the way for a cleaner, greener future. 

Potentially harmful ingredients often found in personal lubricants:

Glycerin - Even though glycerin or glycerol is found in many lubricants, some research suggests that high amounts can damage or irritate cells in the vagina and rectum. 

Petroleum - Petroleum jelly can interfere with the proper functioning of the skin, alter the vagina’s natural pH, and contribute to bacterial overgrowth.

Parabens - Parabens are found in many commercial lubes. Even though paraben use is widespread, some data suggests that parabens and preservatives in cosmetics could have harmful effects, including possible interference with hormone signaling.

Phthalates - Phthalates have come under increasing scrutiny for their potential to disrupt the endocrine system—or the body’s chemical “messaging” system. 

Fragrances - Fragrances are often synthetic, listed as “perfume, fragrance oil, parfum” etc. Artificial fragrances in a lube can lead to a urinary tract infection, yeast infection, BV, or other uncomfortable sensations.
