We know, you heard it from a friend, read it somewhere on Pinterest, and if you're like us - use it for EVERYTHING.
But the short answer here is no, coconut oil is not an ideal lubricant. Let us explain!
Coconut oil has gained the reputation of liquid gold, having multi-uses from skincare to cooking - and has also made its way into the bedroom as an alternative for lube. We get it, coconut oil is super accessible. Picking up a jar while grabbing some groceries definitely seems much more discreet than popping into your local naughty shop and the price seems unbeatable. But coconut oil shouldn’t be your go-to for a number of reasons.
So now that we’ve steered you away from coconut oil, here are some alternatives:
Sutil Luxe : So you love the natural and organic perks that come with coconut oil? Sutil is full of natural ingredients such as lotus root, oat beta, and plant sourced hyaluronic acid. It’s long-lasting and water-based, so it’s easy to clean up and safe to use with your fave vibes! Try it in the original Luxe or if you’re looking for something a bit thicker - Sutil Rich.
Sliquid Silver: Want to keep the sleek, smooth, and oily feeling that comes with using coconut oil? Give Sliquid Silver a try. It’s a long-lasting silicone (but still easy to clean) lube that’s best for skin on skin action!
