Why natural and safer intimate products?
According to Dr. Maggie Ney : " Standard lubricants contain potentially toxic ingredients like glycerin, can contribute to yeast infections; propylene glycol, which can be irritating to the skin; chlorhexidine gluconate, an antibacterial that can kill healthy vaginal bacteria, which then makes a women more susceptible to yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis; and petroleum, which can alter vaginal pH and contribute to more vaginal infections."
"Using lubricants with toxic ingredients has an effect on our reproductive system, as the vagina and anus are highly permeable areas and anything that is applied topically can be absorbed into the body. Parabens are a very common preservative in most cosmetics (moisturizers, face wash, lotions) that are used to prevent bacterial overgrowth. The problem is that parabens are endocrine disruptors, which means that they have an estrogenic effect in the body—they bind to the same cell receptors as our own estrogen but they interfere with our normal, rhythmic, hormonal process."
🌸 Celebrity OB-GYN Sherry Ross: “I have always told my patients we need to take care of our vulva and vagina like we do our face, using special cleaning, hydrating and moisturizing products for this sensitive and temperamental area of our body.”
Listed here are only the safest lubricants I found!
Made with USDA Certified Organic ingredients, they are the cleanest, most natural, pure and edible on the market.
⚠️The toxic chemicals found in conventional lubricants alternate vaginal tissue and its microbiome.
👉Besides discomfort and irritation, they can create infections and reproductive problems from repeated exposure.
❌Avoid conventional = toxic brands such as:
👉Astroglide, Equate K-Y lubricants they contain: methylparaben, Propylparaben, chlorhexidine gluconate, artificial flavors, and more
❌Avoid greenwashing: misleading brands such as:
👉Gennev- Good Clean Love - Sustain- Aloe Cadabra- Penchant- JO: potassium sorbate sodium benzoate, phenoxyethanol, and natural flavors or aromas
👉The generic ingredients “flavor”, “fragrance” or “aroma” represent a combination of undisclosed chemicals. Numerous harmful chemicals can be included in flavors, fragrances, and aromas including carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and allergens
✅Safer brand: My number one suggestion for you would be to search for USDA certified organic seal on the packaging.
That eliminates many toxic and greenwashing brands.
