The sex educator in me screams with horror every time I need to pick up a prescription from the drug store. Why is that? See, the prescription pick up is facing the section with condoms and lubricants. And every now and then I will see a person buying a KY jelly and my heart sinks. I can’t be that crazy person who talks to random strangers purchasing lubes, about the pH and the osmolality of the product. I can throw at the stranger glycerin and propylene glycol arguments and quote studies. This is a privilege I can exercise when someone consents to talking about sex or intimate health with me. That poor soul just wanted better sex, and not a stranger telling them that the great “deal” they got on the KY is at the expense of their own health. What I can do though, is talk to you. From another post of mine you might already know how important the ingredients of a lube are.
Luckily, everything created by Sliquid has always been glycerin, propylene glycol and paraben-free. Their products are also not tested on animals. Their lubricants are all pH balanced, but the acidity of the products varies slightly. One of the lubes that has a little higher pH, but it’s also approved as a daily intimate moisturizer, not just a sex lubricant, is the Sliquid Satin. Beautiful on the outside, but also created with care and ingredients that help with lubrication in long-term. It’s one of the fanciest Sliquid lubes created so far!
Ingredients and Health Benefits
Sliquid Satin, like most Sliquid products, comes in 2 oz, 4 oz or 8 oz bottles, which are recyclable. While Satin is water-based, it’s also infused with Aloe, Carrageenan and Vit E. These three ingredients are not only essential to healthy natural moisturizing, but Carrageenan is linked to lower risk of HPV (papillomavirus infection).
Full list of ingredients: Purified Water, Plant Cellulose (from Cotton), Carrageenan, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), Natural Tocopherols (Vitamin E), Cyamopsis (Guar Conditioners), Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid
Sliquid Satin is a slick water-based lube that’s runny and has a similar consistency as Sliquid H2O. It’s colorless, odorless and tasteless. It never gets sticky or hard to wash off. And as I mentioned, it’s designed to be an intimate lubricant as well, making it perfect for people who experience vaginal dryness, due to menopause, drug side-effects, chemotherapy or a number of other reasons.
I love using it daily for my kegel balls exercises. It’s great for vaginal intercourse too, or combined with oral sex, because it doesn’t have any taste. It’s safe to use with all sex toys and latex products. I don’t find it thick enough for anal sex, but if you are using a smaller anal toy, or putting extra lube with a lube shooter, it could be used for butt play too.
Sliquid Silk is a great body-friendly water-based lube and intimate everyday moisturizer for sex and masturbation; it is also great during menopause or in cases of vaginal dryness. It has some of the best natural ingredients one can expect from high-end Sliquid lubes. It’s a little too runny for me as my go-to lube is actually Sliquid Organics Gel. But I can happily recommend it because of the Carrageenan it contains and the long-lasting, non-messy lubrication it provides. But if you are looking for a good anal sex lube, I would pick Sliquid Sassy or Silver instead.
