“The pH balance is a critical component of vaginal health. When pH is elevated, it creates a perfect breeding ground for bad bacteria to thrive. In fact, elevated pH levels are highly correlated to episodes of bacterial vaginosis. Lubricants that are made from heavily concentrated petrochemicals tend to push up the pH level because of their toxic effect on the outer layers of skin tissue in the vagina.” – Wendy Strgar.

“If there’s one thing you can take from this guide, let it be this: you deserve better lube than what’s at a CVS, especially since a lot of them have glycerin, parabens, and petrochemicals in them. This lube’s [CBD CaraGold™] ingredient list honestly sounds like a nice gentle moisturizer; it’s mostly aloe, carrageenan, and hemp seed oil. It’s not sticky at all, and, while water-based, doesn’t dry out quickly. Which is like, exactly the point of lube.”
