What is a Water-Based Lubricant?

Water-based personal lubricants are water-soluble and are the most widely used personal lubricants. (Wikipedia)

The active ingredients of high-premium water-based lubes are known for helping users reduce friction during sexual activities. They help millions with vaginal dryness and are great for people with sensitive skin.

Unlike silicone lubricants, water based lubes easily dissolve in water. Their lightweight, balanced formulas typically contain natural ingredients, derived from seeds and plants.

Non-toxic and paraben-free, high-quality lubes moisturize the skin during foreplay. As they evaporate fast, it's recommended to reapply a bit of lube before sexual intercourse.

Unscented, pH balanced formulas are engineered to simulate normal vaginal pH levels to enhance natural lubrication.

While water-based lubes are easy to clean and don't stain bed sheets, they are not recommended to use in the shower or bath. Silicone and oil-based lubricants are a better option to use in a shower session.

Types of Lube: Why People Prefer Water-Based Products

People may prefer water-based formulas to oil-based and silicone lubricants for a variety of reasons. First, the water-based clever formula is body-safe. Secondly, water-based products are safe from harmful ingredients that other types of lubes often contain.

How to Use a Personal Lubricant

Using personal lubricants is easy. Simply apply it on the body or the sex toy you're going to use.

To minimize the chance of irritation and avoid any discomfort during sex or masturbation, a water-based lube can be a great option. Its water-based, light-weighted formula feels incredibly erotic and natural on the skin.

Water-based lubes are safe to use with all kinds of toys, including silicone sex toys. When applied on latex condoms, personal lubricants prevent them from falling off during intercourse.

Unscented, water-based vaginal lubricants that are paraben and glycerin free can be a great option for penetrative sex. Their active ingredients, such as aloe vera extract and vitamin E, moisturize the skin and combat vaginal dryness.

You can even use our water-based, friendly lubes during oral play for added simulation. Consumed in small amounts, they are completely safe.

Although water-based lubes vaporize faster than oil or silicone-based lubricants, they can be re-activated with saliva or a bit of water during intercourse.

If you're considering one of the flavored, warming or cooling lubes, but have a medical condition, we recommend asking your doctor for medical advice before making a purchase.
