Body-friendly and earth-friendly too.

This is a great choice for anyone who is concerned about the ingredients found in lubricants. This is a pretty average water-based lube, performance-wise, but the ingredient list helps it to stand out from the crowd. Not only is it glycerin-free and paraben-free, but it contains only natural ingredients, many of which are from certified organic sources. The plant-based ingredients give it a noticeable floral aroma, but it's not objectionable.

Use

Water-based lubricants are great because they can be used for pretty much anything. They're safe to use with all toy materials, including silicone, and when made from the right ingredients, they're safe for your body as well.

Many water-based lubricants have glycerin, or other sugar-like molecules which can provide food for yeasts and other nasties which can cause problems inside the vagina. Other water-based lubes use parabens (as preservatives), which cause allergic reaction in some people, and have become controversial recently.

The Sliquid Organics line contains neither glycerin nor parabens, making it a good choice for those who are prone to yeast infections or allergic to parabens. It is a good general purpose lubricant, appropriate for intercourse, masturbation, toys, etc.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

As its name suggests, this is a gel-type lube, thicker than the average water-based lubricant. It's not super thick, like some of the gels targeted specifically for anal use, but it does tend to stay where you put it, which is nice. It's very slick, but like most water-based lubricants it does eventually dry out and become sticky.

Taste / Aroma

It's important to me that a lubricant not have an objectionable flavor. Some lubes are way too sweet (due to sugary ingredients such as glycerin) or have weird odors. Sliquid Organics is not too sweet, thanks to its lack of glycerin, but it does have a fairly strong floral taste (and to a lesser extent, smell). The ingredient list includes both rose and hibiscus extracts, and I can definitely taste both. It's not at all unpleasant, but it is somewhat distracting until you get used to it. Those who insist on a very neutral flavor will want to avoid this one.

Performance

The Sliquid Organics Gel performs pretty much like any other water-based lube. It works well at first, then becomes a bit sticky as it starts to dry out. Adding a few drops of water makes it slick again, or you can just add more lube. It washes off easily in water, making it easy to clean off toys or yourself. Like other water-based lubricants, it won't work well for underwater sex, as it just washes away too quickly for that.

Packaging

Sliquid packages this product in a dark brown plastic bottle with an attractive label. At first glance it looks like any toiletry, so you could leave it out without it attracting much attention.

The bottle is quite wide, and made of thick plastic, so it's harder to squeeze than some other bottles. I have the bigger 8.5 ounce bottle, and I'm not sure how easy it will be to squeeze out the thick gel after I get halfway through the bottle. I usually prefer pump-style dispensers, but this product isn't available in that type of packaging.

Special Features

The idea of organic ingredients will attract many to this product, given its name. The ingredient list indicates that many, but not all of the ingredients are certified organic. The label promises that this lube is not tested on animals, as well as pointing out that it's vegan friendly, as it contains no animal products.

    I thought this lube sounded good from its description. Your review confirms it.

    Another excellent review! This was next on my "to try" list. However, I'm concerned that this particular lubricant contains Phenoxyethanol, or Rose Ether. A quick search comes up with a few studies concerning toxicology breakdowns of this ingredient. Though it seems there is still a large amount unknown about Rose Ether, it is stated in various sources that it may be hazardous if swallowed. For this reason I'd like to caution against using it in oral stimulation. There is also a warning that it may be hazardous if absorbed through skin, but I couldn't find enough sources to back up that statement.

    A word of caution: Just because a product is organic doesn't mean it's safe. "Organic" beauty & cosmetic products have no regulations to adhere to, unlike Organic produce or meat. A brand can flaunt the word "organic" or "all natural" all they want, and still contain potentially harmful substances in their soap, shampoo, makeup, and yes, even lube. Just a word to the wise.
