“Strgar struggled for years to persuade large retailers that her products serve millions of people who need lubricants for sex but suffered with the itching, burning and discomfort of many of the manufactured brands. It was an uphill battle but today, her products can be found in CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart and Target.”
“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.
“Strgar told HB that many women don’t have the language to explore what sexy feels like to them. We confuse sexuality with being sexualized—meaning we see ourselves as sexy when someone else views us as sexy.”
“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.”
“This month, the makers of Good Clean Love personal lubricants received a patent for a revolutionary formulation that’s bringing health and happiness into bedrooms across the country. With their signature Bio-Match Restore and growing range of organic, female-engineered lubes and love oils, the team is on a mission to provide the benefits of using personal lubricants while taking away its all-too-common pains—which, according to the team’s medical experts, many women endure without even knowing it.”
“In order to learn a bit more about what to avoid or look for in lubes, we recently caught up with Wendy Strgar. Back in 1999, as a 37-year-old mother of four, Strgar decided she needed lube, then discovered that everything readily available on the market irritated her tissue.”
“Lube can be a lifesaver in the bedroom. But if you pick the wrong one, it can be seriously harmful to your health. Many of the bestselling varieties contain some of the same ingredients that are also used in antifreeze, brake fluid, and even oven cleaner, says Wendy Strgar, founder of Good Clean Love.”
“The founder of the sexual health company Good Clean Love, Wendy Strgar built her first lubricant laboratory in her Oregon kitchen. In between making meals for her family, she experimented with aromatherapy and homeopathy recipes to concoct an all-natural lubricant that would whet the appetite for some slick lovemaking.”
“There seems to be a popular misconception among young women that we should be able to get wet on command. When we can’t, we assume we’re old, asexual or weird instead of, you know, just human. Strgar explains there are plenty of reasons why you could have trouble getting wet.”
“There are a lot of men who become dependent on this kind of stimulation to such a degree that they become unable to respond to intimacy with their partners,” – Wendy Strgar talks porn and relationships.
Once you try organic, you never go back. “What I did notice about Restore is that it really felt natural. There was none of that sticky-thick-ultrasound-esque feel that I had with the KY Jelly. The organic lube really felt like what I’m used to feeling down there, just even more lubricated.”
In ‘6 Techniques to Become Multi-Orgasmic Every Time’, Wendy Strgar shares tips from her book Sex That Works: A Woman’s Guide to Embracing the Erotic, Awakening Arousal, and Deepening Intimacy.
The Evening Standard teaches Londoners how to have a green sex life, from eco-lube to bio condoms: “Good Clean Love use organic aloe leaf juice to keep everything moving smoothly.”
“Wendy Strgar, founder of Good Clean Love, said she wished that she had had a place for her business and access to other entrepreneurs when she was starting out. So last year when she leased more space for Good Clean Love’s headquarters on West Fifth Avenue in Eugene, she remodeled a suite of offices and set up Bloom — a shared work space for women-owned ventures.”
“If you’re the type who obsessively reads the labels on food and beauty products and gets a bit of a lady boner from phrases like ‘phthalate free’ or ‘ethically sourced,’ then all-natural lube is for you,…Good Clean Love is a woman-owned and run, certified B Corp company with the goal of fostering both ethical and emotional responsibility. Their lube is free of petrochemicals and parabens.”
Anastasia Strgar (Wendy’s eldest) speaks about growing up with Good Clean Love and it’s liberating impact. “There’s a misconception that lubricant isn’t sexy. And a lot of times women my own age will sort of brag, “Well, I don’t need lubricant.” Everybody needs lube, even if they don’t think they do. We use the phrase, “Wetter is better.”
“I really believe that in the next two years, this whole category is going to be turned upside down,” Strgar said. “I think a lot of those products are going to come out as being bad for people. My whole goal is to pioneer the truth about sexual health… I feel really fortunate to be able to do this kind of work.”
