Why would you want to smell like everyone else? That’s one of the questions we asked ourselves when we started to learn about the dangers of synthetic perfumes and fragrances. By “synthetic perfumes and fragrances,” we mean most of the perfumes you see (and smell) when you walk into a department store.

In 2015, department stores stocked 1,165 fragrance brands(nearly twice as many as they carried...

If you’ve just given birth, it’s natural that your own hygiene is not your top priority. However, postpartum infection, also called puerperal infection, is not uncommon, especially if delivery was difficult. Good postpartum washing is key to prevention.

Here’s what you need to know

  1. These infections are bacterial, and they begin when bacteria on your body (or on delivery doctors) begin to...

So, I spent the last month writing an erotic novel (under a pen name, and it isn’t technically novel length; at 30,000 words, it’s more a long story or novella). I wanted to see what it would be like — I work as a writer, but I’d never before written explicitly about sex, or tried to build a story driven by sexual tension. Also, I’d read Emily Nagoski’s post about her own (successful) experiment...

UPDATE (1/19): Thanks to a chemist friend who saw our question (How does oil-based lube break down latex condoms?) and read one of the articles linked in the post, we’ve learned a little more about the science of oil-latex interactions.

It seems the recommendation against using oil-based lubricants is based on the fact that it’s known that non-polar solvents degrade latex. The tricky thing is, non...

Now what?

You may be asking yourself, How do I use such a thing? In fact, there are many uses for Love Oil, the first product created at Good Clean Love. Our founder, Wendy Strgar, claims that it was a “love oil” that got her on the path of starting the company because it saved her relationship. After she ran out, she tried to find another one and just couldn’t! So, if your sex life needs a bit of...

Two studies by the Indiana University found that 53 percent of women and 45 percent of men aged 18-60 use vibrators during sexual play.

Do these numbers surprise you? If so, you might be interested to find out that not only is vibrator use more common than most think, but according to these studies, its use is linked to positive sexuality and increased care for one’s sexual health.

Vibrators have...

I have a cool job, or as my fifteen year old son would correct me, it is fresh. I get to imagine and then sell amazing love products. My husband bought in to the concept because he of course gets to be the primary tester- that’s the real perk of a love products business. I have learned a lot about product formulation and ingredients over the years, but what I have learned about love and marriage...

My work making personal lubricants never seemed like the answer to a national health crisis until now. As many of you know, I was inspired to...

Sexual health and product safety are the cornerstones of the Good Clean Love product mission. The company was created 10 years ago in response to my own personal need for intimacy products that were not made with petrochemicals and parabens. Over the years our formulations have matured into a product line that is easily tolerated by even the most sensitive tissue. We work to provide products that...

Yesterday, I posted this status on Facebook: “For many years I have resisted selling my products in my writing, believing that it would somehow confuse the message and reduce the education about love to advertising. I am ending my silence today. For as much as I have come to understand about the relational quality of loving that makes sex true and amazing, I learned these things through Good Clean...
