Is It Actually Safe to Use Coconut Oil as a Personal Lubricant?

Finding a good personal lubricant is a tricky business and most of us have come across some that have burnt, smelt terrible, or completely killed the mood in some other gross way.

Have you ever wondered if it’s actually safe to use coconut oil as a personal lubricant?

Have You Ever Looked at the Ingredients in a Sex Oil?

Maybe you shouldn’t, the list can be quite frightening. Here’s the list of ingredients we found in one of the more popular personal lubricants.

  • Glycerin
  • Nonoxynol-9
  • Chlorhexidine gluconate
  • Methylparaben
  • Benzoic acid
  • Petroleum 
  • Propylene glycol

Do any of those sound safe to you?

And these are just the water-based lubes, can you imagine what happens when you add silicone into the mix?

What Are the Dangers of Water-based or Silicone-based Sexual Lubricants?

According to an article in c&en, studies have shown that damage to cells in the lining of your vagina and rectum can be caused by some of these lubes.

Why is that a problem? Because that lining helps to protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STI). The risk of getting an STI increases if you use lube regularly, and not just every now and then.

That’s the physical dangers of using silicone or water-based sex oils. You can also forget about using any of your expensive sex toys if you don’t want to see them destroyed by chemicals.


What Are the Benefits of Using Coconut Oil as a Personal Lubricant?

Coconut oil is a natural product which means it doesn’t contain toxins or pollutants and that is the main advantage. 

As a bonus, coconut oil is thicker and longer-lasting than other sex oils. It’s not going to end up as a clumpy mess, it won’t stain your sheets, and it will wash out easily.


A Few Words to the Wise About Coconut Oil

We’re now becoming more aware of the harmful toxins we put in our bodies and there are now more choices than there has ever been before.

Any coconut oil that you use as a personal lubricant should be as free from other ingredients as possible. It shouldn’t be used with latex condoms as it can break down the latex and cause the condom to break.

And we all know what that leads to.

There’s no need to use harmful personal lubricants when products like Cocolube are available.

Is Coconut Oil More Expensive than Silicone-based Lubricants?

Cocolube can be purchased in a 1oz bottle for $9.99 U.S. Because of its unique properties, you don’t need to use a lot of it, so it’s a small investment for a huge payoff.
