What kind of shopper are you?
Are you an impulse buyer? Are you the kind of shopper who will grab anything with barely a glance at the label and simply toss it in the cart, because it’s simply filling a need? Are you the informed-decision shopper, where you can’t drop adimewithout first obsessively devoting hours to research and product comparisons and reviews?
Did that last sentence hit just a little too close to home?
If you’re like me, then you know that there’s nothing quite like falling down the black hole of shopping for a new — well — anything — because it’s near impossible for you to spend a cent unless you know that what you’re about to purchase meets every single one of your needs and is the best possible solution out there.
And if you’re like me, then you know that the process is especially true when it comes to shopping for something so intimate as a personal lubricant.
Ready to make an informed decision?
Let’s take a look at why you should ditch water and silicone-based lubricants for an all-natural, oil-based formula.Benefit # 1: oil-based lubricants have zero toxic downside
When it comes to our nether parts, I think it’s safe to say that very few, if any of us, would knowingly opt-in to potentially toxic synthetic ingredients and icky preservatives.
But the unfortunate reality of the situation is that synthetic ingredients and icky preservatives are very much the norms when trying to findthe best type of lube.
Finding a natural, non-toxic, preservative-free, oil-based formula of lube may seem like a tall order, but it’s one that dedicated brands (looking at you, CocoLube!) are happy to fill.
Coconut oil-derived and formulatedwithoutparabens, silicone, glycerin, petrochemicals, or preservatives, CocoLube’s coconut oil-based lube is the healthiest natural lubricant you’ll find on the market, making it the perfect partner for all of your most intimate rendezvous.
Benefit # 2: oil-based lubricants give you unrivaled slickness
There’s nothing that will break the mood like realizing that you won’t be able to cross the line without reaching for another drop or two of liquid love.
But that’s what you’re signing up for when opting for a water-based lubricant over silicone or oil-based alternatives.
Evaporating shortly after application, water-based lubes need to be constantly reapplied, and at the end of the day, they just cannot match the same, sensual slickness you’ll get with an oil-based lubricant.
And isn’t that part of the job description?
Unlike its water-based counterparts, oil-based lubricants provide silky smooth, luscious slickness that will outlast and outperform any water or silicone-based lubricant out there.
Now, that’s stamina.
Benefit # 3: oil-based lubricants are toy-safe
Incomparable hydration and unbelievable slickness is, okay,amazing, but where’s the fun if you can’t invite friends to come along for the ride?
If toys are your jam, whether solo, in a duo, a trio, and beyond, you’ll want a lubricant that plays well with others.
Silicone-based lubricants are a no-go when it comes to your silicone, jelly, or Cyberskin toys, as they will only help deteriorate your play-time instruments, and no one has time for that.
Other than water-based lubricants that evaporate almost as soon as they’re applied, oil-based lubes are the toy-safe alternative thatwon’tdry up before you can get to the good part.
Want to get your hands — or — whatever part you please — on a natural, coconut oil-based lubricant that's long lasting, sensuously smooth, and taste like a tropical paradise?
