I have never been able to find a good water-based lube. The main reason I hate water-based lubricants is because I've found many of them irritate my girly parts. I'm sure we're all aware of the harmful materials found in sex toys, but lubricants can contain harmful substances too.
Let's take a look at some of the sketchy ingredients found in some of our most beloved lubes:
Parabens- An antimicrobial preservative known to have hormone-disrupting effects, and cause allergic reactions.
Glycerin- Used to keep your lube nice and slick without getting sticky, but is also known to cause yeast infections.
Propylene Glycol – A cosmetic form of mineral oil used in lubricants to retain moisture. It can cause skin irritation, or even (albeit rare) kidney damage in more severe cases.
I would really like to see Eden Fantasys carry more organic lubes that don't contain harmful ingredients.

Dodgy ingredients aside, I don't just want some hippie lube that ain't worth a damn either. I want safety and effectiveness. So take a look at some of the most popular water-based lubricants on the EF site, and weigh the pros and cons for yourself.
