Go Organic with your Lube Routine!
The benefits of using an organic lube
You might have an idea about what lube is, but what about organic lubes? What is the difference between a normal lube and an organic lube, and what benefits does the organic kind bring?
Today’s blog post seeks to answer all these questions and shed some light on what exactly organic lube is, plus its benefits.
What is Organic Lube?
An organic lube is basically a type of lube that is formulated with organic materials and ingredients. It presents customers with a healthier alternative to mainstream lube which is potentially more harmful to your body.

What are the Benefits?
- Lack of Parabens
Parabens are a type of preservative compound that are commonly detected in a wide range of products, including cosmetics and food. As of current, there is research conducted on the relationship between parabens and cancer: this 2019 report suggests that while a direct causal link between parabens and cancer cannot be established, it was mentioned that parabens have the potential to cause cancer. In organic lubes, there are no traces of parabens and, thus, can be considered safer to use.
- Less Irritability
Unlike mainstream and mass-produced lubes, organic lubes do not contain materials such as sugar (glycerin) or propylene glycol. These can potentially cause irritation, especially in delicate and sensitive areas such as your genitals.
- Optimal pH Balance
Due to the fact that the vagina itself has a pH ranging from 3.5 to 4.8, any lube with a pH of over 4.8 can create a pH imbalance within the vagina. Furthermore, on an average finding, most mainstream lubes are usually pH 7, potentially unbalancing the optimum pH of your vagina. Organic lubes are actually known for their low pH (ranging from around 4.0 to 4.2). They are more suitable and optimal for the vagina.
Ingredients and materials used to make organic lubes are not only organic but also environmentally friendly in the sense that they are materials that are obtained with minimal environmental impact.
