Cocoa butter and vaseline?

callsignhusker callsignhusker
So we have tried water based lubes many times, several brands. We even used them for a whole month or two several years ago. They irritate both of our skins, pretty much all brands, some more, some less. We always return to vaseline and have had no health problems with using it. We find it long lasting almost COMPLETELY odorless and it doesn't get sticky or dry quickly or or quickly turn into crusty stuff. Recently we started using cocoa butter vaseline it's slightly smoother and more moisturizing. We haven't had any health issues and it plays well with our glass and silicone toys. It lasts a long time to because you only have to use a little bit and it doesn't rub off easily. Have you ever tried this product? What are your experiences with cocoa vaseline or vaseline in general?

I would recommend it personally since it seems much safe than some people seem to have been led to think about oil based lubes. It also cause less skin irritation, is more moisturizing and need only be applied once unlike other lubes.. Frankly I feel like companies stand to make much more money from water based lubes since they need to be reapplied so much. So many people speak highly of water-based but whenever we try them they fail to compete. Do you think it's a women's health concern to use vaseline?

Before I discovered the joys of lube, I used a store brand cocoa butter lotion. This was about 3 years ago or so. I STILL smell it on me sometimes. My skin really soaked it up. I used it for about 10 years, through my late teens and twenties.

I have sensitive skin, but I haven't had problems with most water based lubes irritating me. I also almost never have to reapply them. I tried using vaseline as lube 1 time, before I had tried actual lube, and I would never use it again. The texture is a complete turn off to me. It's too thick and greasy and almost tacky at the same time. It just isn't slick and didn't seem to reduce friction very much. And it is difficult to wash off so I felt like there must have been residue left in my vagina for a long time. I might give an oil based lube a try in the future, but would never use vaseline, lotion etc.

We love cocoa butter formulations - however recently Shea butter has entered the formulations and it's now our favorite. We use Yes link - a Shea & Cocoa butter formulation from England.

It has other good stuff like almond oil and vitamin E - can't say enough good things about it.

I could see how water-based lube would irritate sensitive skin. I guess there would be a concern about petroleum content with Vaseline. I have used Vaseline to lubricate tampons when nothing else is available.

I love cocoa butter on my skin, but I've never tried it on my genitals.

be careful if you use condoms because some lubricants, i think like baby oil, will ruin the condom

We don't use lube. I hate it! Also, vaselline is not appealing to me because it's so greasy and it's damn near impossible to wash that stuff off. I've tried it for shaving before on my crotch as well as baby oil gel and holy hell that stuff was a mess. Nothing was worse than vaseline. I had an extreme reaction to a lube in tha past with an ex partner and I was in so much pain. My entire crotch was so swollen I was terrified and hurt to sit down. I dont know what it was, but I'd rather use that crap again before I use vaseline. It felt dirty when I used it just to shave. I even tried the good dish detergent to wash it off since dish detergent will cut through just about any greasy type of residue no matter how thick, and nope! It wouldn't budge. I would feel like germs and stuff was trapped for some reason. I just don't like the idea and plus I'd have a real fit if I had to feel that greasy crap on my cooter! I hate slimy feeling down there from lube and stuff and I would go crazy if a greasy residue was left especially vaseline because it lasts for what seems to be a lifetime on your skin. EW!

Also, I've heard it's very unsafe on the cooter, but I DON'T remember what I heard or where I've read it so I can't say that's true. It just feels nasty and does not seem clean to me. I am a clean freak. :^

Carrageenan lubricant has gotten rave reviews from my friends who get chronic UTI's or rashes from other lubricants. It's also known to lower risk of sexually transmitted diseases being transmitted through play. Much better for your vagina, and your penis as well.

Look it up for yourself and decide what you think!

Also, both cocoa butter and vaselina can irritate your body unless they are organic with no additives. So be careful what you put down there. I would not even recommend using it organically.

One of the problems with Vaseline or any petroleum product (Vaseline is a by product of the fuel oil industry) is that the body doesn't absorb it, nor can the vagina shed it like a water based or silicone based lube.

Also, petroleum jelly will break down the fabric of condoms, which can lead to breakage or micro holes in the condom. Latex based toys as well as some other materials sex toys are made from.

I have a pretty sensitive to chemicals body. I probably tried 7 or 8 or more lubes before I found one that works well and doesn't bother me. Sliquid H2O Ride has only 4 ingredients, and lasts a long time and doesn't irritate either myself or My Man. It's our favorite lube. I find the cheaper lubes, especially flavored or "sensation" lubes cause the most irritation.
