extremely useful review
Some of you may have read my scathing review of Astroglide. Is there no love in the love industry? Well, here is the answer for all the complaints I brought up in that review. A natural lube that is propylene glycol-free, glycerine-free and contains a safe, non-paraben preservative. The following has been lifted from the Good Clean Love website and I feel it is relevant to note their stance on the personal lube industry.

"As a member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics – a branch of the Breast Cancer Fund, all of our love products are petrochemical and parabens free – which have been identified as potentially carcinogenic and identified in breast cancer tissues.
Good Clean Love is an approved Coop America Green Company and strives to reduce its impact while providing the highest quality ingredients and recyclable packaging materials available.
We are continuously working to educate women, physicians and retail stores about the importance of clean and healthy ingredients in love products.
We believe that it is vital to replace the use of petrochemicals and parabens in all intimacy products. We provide samples to health care professionals across the country."

The company also stands by its product and promises a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.

Good Clean Love (GCL) personal lubricant is a high-end natural water-based lubricant that is a good compromise between safety and performance. It has a high proportion of aloe in it which is good for the skin, and while it does dry out quickly, it does not become sticky like glue. It rubs into the skin and is absorbed and you can decide to add more lube or re-moisten it with saliva or water. Saliva seems to work the best, but you can only re-wet a couple of times before you are working with all saliva and no lube. I used this for vaginal, blow jobs, toys, and anal. I find it doesn't work well for anal, as it is hard to re-wet without contamination. GCL really is the best for a quick jump start early on in a lovemaking or masturbation session when you just need a little juice to get going. Once you start producing your own juices, you are home-free. If it is one of those parched, dry days, more product will inevitably be necessary.
The texture of GCL is loose enough to spread quickly, but thick enough to hold it's shape. It is pretty much aloe gel, and that is what it looks and feels like.
The lavender/rose scent is quite mild and very natural. I think I might prefer the Almost Naked flavor, but Eden doesn't carry that one for some reason. That one is completely scentless and tasteless. I have not tried the cinnamon, but it sounds delicious. GCL washes off very easily and actually when it is rubbed in, you don't really notice it enough to want to wash it of your hand or whatnot. It comes off toys easily and, of course it can be used with silicone.
The ingredient list on Eden says it contains glycerine, but my tube doesn't list it as an ingredient and the GCL website advertises that the product is now glycerine-free. I can't say for sure what you will get if you order from Eden since maybe they have some of the older stock that doesn't contain the new formula.
Experience
I use this all the time for regular vaginal intercourse and playing with toys. It is not so much an anal lube, since it doesn't have the staying power that anal requires. For toys it can't be beat and even though we have to add saliva or add more product during sex, it doesn't take much- less than a dime size blob to re-boot and maybe a nickel to start things going. I am so grateful that somebody made a natural lube that I am willing to put up with a few minor annoyances. The cosmetics industry is unregulated to a frightening degree and it is heartening to see a few righteous companies out there that have their customers' safety in mind.
Follow-up commentary
I have fallen out of love with Good Clean Love. Water-based formulas just don't cut it for me anymore. I don't enjoy the sensation of a product drying on me and my partner and turning sticky - which is what pretty much all of the water-based products do. If you have to use condoms, this would be a great product, but for skin on skin contact, silicone or oil-based are my favorites for long-lasting glide.
