Why use a personal lubricant?

There are many benefits to using personal lubricant, from making sex more comfortable, to making condoms safer, to adding fun flavors to your sex life. Whether you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, looking for the male g-spot or just wanting to heat things up Astroglide has the personal lube for you.

What makes Astroglide unique?

Astroglide’s trade secret formula is soothing, moisturizing and long lasting. Our personal lube provides the highest level of slipperiness and retains its lubricating property for hours without irritating the skin or leaving residue. It doesn’t develop a rough, gritty feeling or become sticky. No other personal lubricant provides the same level of comfort, ease of use and natural feel.

Who needs Astroglide personal lubricant?

Anyone who wants to take their sex life up a notch! Let’s face it, when it comes to sex, wetter is better. Astroglide allows couples to ramp up their pleasure, and our latex-safe water based lubes and silicone lubes make condom use safer and more pleasant. You can use Astroglide to help ease into a new sexual position, or to add heat and flavor to your sex life. Women can use Astroglide not only as a personal lubricant, but also to help relieve vaginal dryness.

Is Astroglide safe to use with condoms?

Whether you choose a water based lube or a silicone lube, most Astroglide personal lubricants are latex safe (check product packaging for more info). Petroleum-based products like Vaseline, baby oil or mineral oil can break down the latex in condoms, increasing the risk of pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. In addition, moisture creams and lotions can interfere with vaginal pH levels, and can cause irritation or yeast infections.

What causes vaginal dryness?

If you have problems with personal lubrication, you’re not alone! Many factors, including menopause, childbirth/nursing, menstruation, certain medications, cancer therapy, strenuous exercise and emotional stress can affect a woman’s production of natural lubricants.

Life is too short for bad sex. If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, personal lubricants can help make sex wetter, more comfortable and more satisfying.

Is Astroglide safe to use during pregnancy?

Pregnancy hormones spiking your sex drive? Use caution when getting it on. Formal studies have not been conducted to test the safety of personal lubricant use during pregnancy. Please consult your physician before using Astroglide during pregnancy.

Do Astroglide products contain parabens?

Each formula of Astroglide has its own unique blend of ingredients. Our silicone formulas, Astroglide X Liquid and Astroglide X Gel , Astroglide Organix , and Astroglide Ultra Gentle Gel do not include parabens. Parabens are included in some Astroglide formulas to protect against microbial growth, both for consumer safety and to maintain product integrity. The FDA deems them safe and the American Cancer Society says there are no clear health risks associated with parabens in cosmetics. That’s why parabens are the most widely used class of preservatives in cosmetic products.

Is vaginal dryness a common problem?

According to health experts, 20 million women in the U.S. suffer from vaginal dryness. Over half of all women between the ages of 18 and 29 will experience vaginal dryness, as will 80% of all menopausal women. Personal lubricants like Astroglide provide an easy, effective way to relieve the discomfort caused by vaginal dryness.

Can Astroglide cause irritation?

Astroglide does not contain fragrances, colorings or other ingredients that are common irritants. However, any topical product can cause irritation. If you feel that you may be sensitive to one of the ingredients, test the personal lubricant on a small patch of skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. Many people who are prone to skin irritation prefer allergy tested and dermatologist reviewed Astroglide Ultra Gentle Gel or a natural lube such as Astroglide Organix.

Can Astroglide cause a yeast infection?

While some women’s journals cite personal lubricants containing glycerin as a source of yeast infections, this is not true. In fact, some yeast infection cures contain glycerin. However, an existing yeast infection can be made worse by products containing a large percentage of glycerin. This is because the sugars in glycerin act as a food source for the yeast.

Women who are prone to yeast infections may choose to use natural lubricants free from glycerin and parabens, like Astroglide Glycerin & Paraben Free Liquid or Astroglide X Silicone Gel.

Are there animal products in Astroglide?

Vegans deserve great sex, too! There are no animal products in Astroglide personal lubricants. Enjoy long-lasting satisfaction with a clear conscience.

What happens if Astroglide is swallowed during intimate activity?

We know that Astroglide products may taste great, but you should not drink the bottle. That said, there’s no shame in a little swallowing. Astroglide personal lubricants are non-toxic and ingesting small amounts should not be harmful.

Has the formula for ASTROGLIDE Liquid changed?

Yes. If you’ve noticed any subtle changes in the product’s consistency, we’ve replaced one of the ingredients, Polyquaternium-15, with Polyquaternium-7, a more common ingredient used in personal care products such as shampoo, conditioners, skincare, etc. The switch was necessary due to Polyquaternium-15 being no longer available.
