Aloe Vera lubricants might just be an answer to your prayers, as they are safe and pleasant to use, and come with added benefits.
OK, let's tackle this delicate subject, because it's worth a few red faces to solve what can be a very common and upsetting problem for many couples.
Many women experience dryness and pain during intercourse, particularly after the menopause and don't want to use Estrogen cream or HRT (hormone replacement therapy) due to reported side effects.
In addition to this, many lubes have a lot of chemicals in them, and some have been reported to encourage yeast and other infections.
Aloe Vera, known throughout history as ‘the miracle plant’ has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. So this wonderful gel based product will help protect against infections which may be made worse by sex. (Don’t rely on it completely, mind you, always use a condom too!).
In addition to that, it cools, softens and moisturises the skin, so it will leave you feeling really lovely.
Aloe Vera is also anti-inflammatory and heals wounds, so it will help with any soreness or tiny abrasions.
Some Aloe Vera lubricants will contain chemicals, so watch out that you get one which is a high quantity of Aloe Vera gel and only natural preservatives.
I was surprised how many different types of lube actually have Aloe Vera in them.
From my research it looks like the big lube manufactures are starting to finally realising that we would rather use natural products on our sensitive parts.
They are slowly coming to their senses, and are realising that using nasty chemical concoctions is just not good for your skin.
Ok, so here it is take on Aloe Lube:
Ok, here is our first choice.
The great thing about 'Sliquid' is that they have so many types of lubes to choose from. They even do these cool combination boxes of lubricants. These are great if your into experimentation and like to try different types of lubes out.

Sliquid Organics Botanically Infused Natural Gel
The 'Sliquid' organics botanically infused gel is brilliant ( my partners favourite)... Sliquid Organics Gel is all nature, and an ultra thick consistency. Sliquid has put in the mixture double amounts of plant cellulose. This creates the uber thick natural gel. We found as its thick, it stays in location and is really long lasting for a natural lube. It also has a nice slickness which is great for a natural lube. Sliquid advertises this gel as Ideal for toy use and for anal play. It has good levels of Aloe vera in the formula.
● Organic All Natural Ingredients● Water Based ● Hypoallergenic● pH balanced ● Easy to clean up● No Harmful preservatives (or any nasty parabens).
Sliquid Organics Botanically Infused Liquid
The Carrageenan, Nori & Wakame lube that Sliquid does is one of my personal favourites :). We have used quite a number of natural Liquid lubricants and if I was to recommend (a non gel) liquid lubricant, I would be suggesting the 'Sliquids' Organics liquid is considered. It has a number of natural organic extracts added to the formula. Sliquid do a number of different variations in this organics range.
● Organic All Natural Ingredients● Water Based ● Hypoallergenic● pH balanced ● Easy to clean up● No Harmful preservatives (or any nasty parabens).● No sugar added.
Maple Holistics Natural Personal Lubricant
This is an all Natural Lube that is well loved and very popular. Its a great allrounder. If you are truly focused on 100% Natural products, you will love this Lube.
Maple Holistics have combined Carrageenan and good old fashioned organic Aloe Vera gel. The benefit of these ingredients is it makes for a great natural lubricant formula that also helps put a stop potential dryness. Its safe for anyone and has been designed for people with sensitive skin.

Aloe Cadabra Organic Personal Lubricant.
This is another great natural all-round lubricant. Its got really good levels of Aloe Vera in its formula. Aloe Cadabra consists of (food grade) 95% Aloe Vera gel. Its Certified Organic (by the NSF). I have been told this is great for Menopause Dryness, and as it is PH balanced, its great for a woman's body.
