All lubes are not created equal. A study of personal lubricants, performed by biophysicists at John’s Hopkins, found that some of the most widely used petrochemical based lubricants on the market, can cause damage to sensitive tissues, leading to an increased risk of infection. Yikes! That’ll get your panties in a bunch…
The chart below shows the osmolarity rating of each product. Osmolarity describes the concentration of chemical ingredients within a cell. The study found that products with extremely high osmolarity could have toxic effects on genital and rectal tissue and an increased risk of genital herpes infection in animal testing.
Good Clean Love lubricant is shown far left at just below the human tissue osmolarity of 300 and was found to have minimal impact on the body.
Good Clean Love products don’t contain petrochemicals, parabens or glycerin. Wendy Strgar, founder of the company, started it with a simple mission: to encourage sustainable loving relationships with real tools that allow you to keep on loving. [Read an interview with Wendy, here!] Her natural love products, such as those in her Love That Works sampler kit, all contain high-quality, organic ingredients.
Love That Works ($65 retail value) includes everything you need to “take your intimacy to new levels,”–body candy to “sweeten any kissable spots,” Love Oil Gift Set to keep you “ready for whatever mood you and your partner are in,” and Love That Works, A Guide to Enduring Intimacy, written by Wendy herself and hailed by critics as an “essential handbook for cultivating the renewable resources of loving relationships.” Is this “love” kit–the secret spark? 4 FOFs will test it.
