Why You Should Switch To Organic Lube

Know what petrochemicals are? You might not, but if you’ve ever used most of the personal lubricants currently on the market, chances are, they have affected you. According to the World Health Organization, these petrochemicals damage genital and rectal cell tissue.

Another thing you need to know about when it comes to lubricants is Bacterial Vagnosis (BV). If you’ve never heard of BV before, you’re not alone; most women haven’t!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • BV occurs when the normal balance of good bacteria in the vagina is disrupted and replaced with an overgrowth of certain types of harmful bacteria
  • 2 in 5 women have it, but 84% don’t know they have it
  • Women who have BV are 60% more likely to contract an STI
  • They are also 3x more likely to infect their partners

Here’s the good news: You can look all you want, but you’ll never find a single petrochemical in clean and natural sexual wellness brand Sustain Personal Lubricants.

Risking BV? I don’t think so.

Now onto the stuff that might sound a little more familiar: Parabens and Glycerin. Two things that – like petrochemicals — you definitely don’t want going inside your body. Parabens, known mostly as toxins in personal care and cosmetics, cause many of the same health effects when found in personal lubricants. And when high concentrations of glycerin enter the vagina, cellular damage can occur and once cells are damaged they are less able to protect the body from contracting an STD or STI.

why organic lubricants > traditional ones?
