Lubricant Ingredients
Allergies & Sensitivities

We believe in transparency and that is why we list the ingredients on our personal lubricants. We understand that just because our lubricants are paraben free that you may have allergy concerns that apply to even the most natural of ingredients that are found within them.

We recommend doing a small skin patch test on your wrist before using a new lubricant for the first time to make sure that you do not have a sensitivity to any of the ingredients. If after 24 hours you do not have any reaction you most likely will not have any issues using them on your genitals and other areas of your body.

Additional Causes of Rashes Beyond Lubricants-

  • Rashes could be anything from something as simple as an allergy, contact dermatitis or a histamine reaction or even something more serious like an STD. There are many things that can irritate the skin and it may be important to further assess what has caused it so that use of it can be discontinued or addressed.

  • Keep in mind that when using lubricants if you have a reaction that it can also be caused from mere friction. Many people overlook this simple cause of skin irritation, so that may be something to consider. Friction from sexual activity whether from skin to skin contact or from a sex toy can cause temporary histamine reactions, especially for those who have sensitive skin or autoimmune disorders.

  • Another possibility if you are using a sex toy is that a rash could could be caused by the sex toy material (which is common with latex). In addition, if you are using a lubricant with a sex toy you may be causing a chemical reaction with the sex toy material. For example silicone lubricants should not be used with silicone blend sex toys.

  • Sensitivities can also be caused by something else altogether. For example, it could be laundry detergent, soap, etc. that is being used and then applying friction of any type could be exacerbating a mild allergic reaction. Often combination effects are overlooked and you might want to explore that possibility.

  • Additionally, a product that you had no problem with before may be something that you are sensitive to now due to an allergy change. The body can develop allergies that were dormant before so looking at things that you may have not had sensitivity to before may be key.
