Are lubricants safe? Are there any side effects?

When it comes to sexual wellness product, don't be lethargic! You must always ensure that what you choose is trustworthy and safe to use. Because you are going to use it on the sensitive part of the body and it will be absorbed into the bloodstream directly. Here are the few things that should keep an eye before when you buy sex lubes online to avoid from side effects.

Avoid some spermicide lubricant

Many lubricants contain some sort of spermicide and one of the most common was Nonoxynol-9. Spermicide is a contraceptive which is present in the many lubes online. This spermicide will kill the sperm cells when applied in the vagina. It will not protect any diseases such as HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.

Check out the ingredient label of Lubricant

It is much toxic, chemical preservative and can be absorbed directly into your skin that leads to cancer. It also causes cut down in sperm count, skin rashes, allergic reactions and breast cancer.

Petroleum ingredients

It may have side effects as Paraben and avoid using these products as it contains impurities. Obviously, it can cause cancer, Skin irritation problems.


It is harmful and can cause damage to the central nervous system and affects your immune system and skin irritation.

Glycerine and glucose

Yeast is actually found in small amounts in the Vagina, if it is absorbed in the skin, then it can easily cause yeast infections in women.

Avoid using certain oil-based Lubes

Oil-based lubes are generally made from petroleum-based and it can be harmful to women's uterus because it can trap bacteria and yeast.

Do not use vaseline as a sexual lubricant

Some people use vaseline as a sexual lubricant due to its sticky nature. In fact it is not advised to use vaseline as a lubricant. It can result in damaging latex condoms and increasing the chances of infection. Always buy sexual wellness products that are designed to be used for that intended purpose.

The article is very well written and is full of information. But one should also focus on the packing of the Lube For example: Some times the Lubes are not sealed. In that situation one can get an artificial stuff in a branded bottle. When I purchased MOI Lube, it was not sealed, keeping me still in doubt whether i am using the correct product or not !!!
