Personal Lubricant

Things in the bathroom🛀🏽 - lubricant. Yep 😂. I’m all about being classy, so don’t worry. But, lubricant does go in women, and they should know what’s being absorbed into their body!

Many lubricants have parabens, phthalates, and even petrochemicals.

Why is this important to know?
“..it is well known that the vaginal ecosystem is more sensitive and more absorbent than typical skin”. That sensitive area can easily be irritated and the good bacteria can be harmed by those chemicals. (1)

In fact, parabens alone show up in the bloodstream in as little as one hour after a dermal application! (2) Even though the body breaks parabens down quickly, these chemicals show up in urine, breast milk, blood and breast tumors. Women are particularly at risk because they are more heavily exposed to all the parabens that are so common in beauty and hygiene products. (3, 4, 5, 6)

This is just another reason to be thankful for companies coming out with better products!

Because lubricant is used on a highly permeable skin area, look for something that is:

made with natural ingredients
petroleum free
alcohol free
preservative free
fragrance free
hypoallergenic

Coconu is made from ingredients like organic coconut oil, organic coconut water, organic beeswax, organic Shea and cocoa butter, and more.
