I’ve heard some really scary things about parabens and glycerin in lubricant. I have no idea if any of them are true. Both sides of the argument seem to have valid points. Personally, I decided to go on a quest to see if there was any lubricant with more natural ingredients that I would like better than the KY standard. I present Sliquid Organics Gel.
A little bit about it: Sliquid Organics Gel is a water based personal lubricant that contains no parabens and no glycerin. Instead of glycerin, they use plant cellulose from cotton. The full list of ingredients is: Purified Water, Plant Cellulose (from Cotton), Aloe Barbadensis*, Natural Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners), Extracts of Hibiscus*, Flax*, Alfalfa*, Green Tea* & Sunflower Seed*, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid. The * denotes certified organic. The bottle also says that these ingredients are vegan.
What I loved: The natural ingredients were exactly what I was looking for. No strong smell, no taste, cute packaging.
What I didn’t love: This lubricant had absolutely no staying power. None. In fact, I put it up against KY to see how the times compare. I did this by putting a small amount of lubricant on my hands and rubbing them together. After four minutes, the KY was getting sticky and I would have had to reapply. As for the the Sliquid, after a mere two minutes, the lubricant was completely gone. No stickiness, no residue, nothing. (If you think those numbers sound familiar, it’s because you read my review over on Eden Fantasys.)
Final thought: I can’t recommend this to someone who needs a lot of help in the personal moisture department. It dries up way too fast. However, those that need just a little help getting thing started may like this, since it stays just long enough to initiate intercourse, and then absorbs without a trace.
