If you have a very sensitive pH, a water-based lubricant will be your best friend. But it can be terrifying because if you’ve never used a lubricant and you’re very sensitive, you may be afraid that something will cause irritation, which is not sexy or comfy. For example, I am very sensitive, which I found out at the embarrassing age of eight. Try being one of the only eight-year-olds you know who can’t take a bubble bath because she gets a yeast infection……. ouch.
I am always on the hunt for finding the best products that are gentle on my body, and lubricants are a crucial one to get right. So I have cultivated procured created a list of my top five favorite lubricants for people with sensitivity, and hopefully, this will help you out on your journey to find what suits you best. These are not in any particular order. They are all amazing, and I would swear by any of them. If you have any that you have found that are not on my list, let me know in the comments section down below, and I will check them out.
I would put this entire brand on this list if I could. I adore Intimate Earth. Their products use organic extracts and natural ingredients. Their products are pure vegan and 100% Paraben and DEA free. They are a women-run company that strives to make the best products, and I adore them wholeheartedly. So what makes defense by Intimate Earth so rad? Intimate Earth Defense Protection Glide contains sea kelp and astringents like tea tree oil and guava bark extract. So carrageenan, where seek help, has been shown to help create a barrier that protects against the HPV virus. This is not in any way to say that it is a form of STD or STI protection, just that it’s another Arsenal in your tools. What I love the most about this product is that it helps to prevent and soothe yeast infection. Unfortunately, I was somebody who had had many of them in my life. It can be super uncomfortable, and using Defense by Intimate Earth helps to cool the fires, for lack a better phrase. This Lube is also latex friendly, so that you can use it with condoms. It has a tiny bit of a tea tree oil scent, but it’s not that bad, I promise, and the benefits outweigh the little bit of sent. I love the texture; it’s nice and silky; it’s just a great product overall. And it comes in 2, 4, and 8 oz bottles.
This is probably one of the priciest on the list, but it is a game-changer. This water-based lubricant has none of the additives that your typical Lou will have. It is genuinely a nude natural lubricant. It was specially developed for the sensitive skin that we have. It’s completely odorless. It’s a super lightweight water-based lube it’s dermatologically tested and contains no parabens or glycerin. It’s also perfect for all of your toys. This lubricant contains no perfumes or Oils, or fat, so if you have very, very sensitive skin, this is the one I would point you to. This is what I would recommend to my most sensitive customers.
This water-based lubricant is designed to mimic a woman’s natural lubrication. It’s free of Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, and Parabens. It’s also super silky, so it’s not going to be tacky on your skin plus, it has the benefit of being a water-based lube, so it is compatible with all of your toy materials super easy to clean off. This was a customer favorite for sure. I had customers with penises and customers with vaginas who all enjoy this product immensely. Agape is a great lube to add to a Fleshlight for a more realistic feel. It also comes in cooling and a warming sensation while still maintaining that paraben, propylene glycol, and glycerin-free ingredient list. This is the best cooling lubricant I have ever used because it doesn’t cause any irritation that other sensation lubricants do.
I had to set my bougie thinking aside to discover how excellent this lubricant was. It may be the packaging, or it might be the fact that I was trained to sell the most expensive products and always with a promotion mentality. But this Lube is excellent. It is 100% free of DEA, gluten, glycerin, glycol, parabens, PEG, propylene glycol, sorbitol, and sulfates. It’s also vegan-friendly; it’s non-toxic, and it’s hypoallergenic. This is a purified water-based formula it’s nice and slick, so it feels more natural, and it has the added benefit that you can use it with all of your toy materials. What’s fantastic about this Lube is that it is ph balanced as well. You can choose three different sizes: a 2 oz bottle, a 4oz bottle, and an 8.5-ounce bottle. Sliquids also have a formula that is free of all of these additives for anal use. It is called Sassy, and it is an excellent thick water-based lube, but I will put that in my next list, which will be the best anal lubes to look out for her. So stay tuned for that one.
Wicked’s Simply Aqua is like the others on this list propylene glycol, and glycerin-free is water-based, and it is fragrance-free. If someone tells you that you can buy a lubricant for sensitive skin and it has fragrance, they are trying to sell you some sneakers oil, my friends. This lubricant is nice and clean; it’s also vegan, it’s cruelty-free, and what makes this one special is that it contains olive leaf extract filled with antioxidants and is super moisturizing. It’s safe with all of your toy materials. It is latex friendly, and it just has a long-lasting effect that is unique amongst water-based Lubes because they tend to absorb into the skin quicker than silicone counterparts.
