Do you test your products on animals?

How does Coconu differ from other organic/natural lubricants?

Coconu was the first company to produce a coconut oil-based lubricant that is USDA certified organic. Other’s claim “natural” and/or “organic,” but they do not go to the lengths required to create a product that will pass the USDA certification. If they do not have the USDA organic seal, they are not certified organic.

Can I use Coconu lubricants with toys?

Yes, the water-based and oil-based Coconu Lubricants are very slippery and effective with toys.

Is Coconu safe to use for anal sex?

Yes, both water-based and oil-based Coconu formulas are safe to use for anal sex. However, if you’re using a latex condom, use the water-based formula.

Is Coconu safe to use when trying to conceive?

If you’re trying to conceive, we recommend consulting with your doctor before using our product, as we don’t make any specific claims about use when a couple is trying to conceive.

What is the shelf life of Coconu products?

Coconu lubricants have a shelf life of 1 year, unopened. Just make sure to store it at room temperature. Our lubricants are made with all-natural ingredients and no harmful preservatives. We recommend reordering a fresh supply within 6 months of opening.

How should I store my Coconu products?

Store at room temperature.

What if the consistency or color of the product changes?

Because of the natural properties of coconut oil, your Coconu product may harden a bit if it gets too cold. But it can be warmed up easily by running the tube under warm water. Also, coconut water can acquire a bronze tint when exposed to oxygen, so you may see a darkening of the lubricant, especially around the lid within 4-6 months of opening. This in no way affects its effectiveness or safety.

Should I use Coconu oil-based or water-based lubricant?

We have loyal fans for both products, so it’s really a matter of preference—try them both and experiment. It also depends on how and with whom you will be using the lubricant. The water-based is very slippery and effective with condoms and toys. The oil-based is long lasting and great for skin on skin, but should not be used with latex condoms.

Where can I get help with my web order?
