Wylde One Intimate Lubricant
Wylde One, is a luxurious, certified vegan and organic botanical lubricant, designed to be actively beneficial for a healthy intimate environment. Made from five dynamic botanicals, Aloe Vera, Marigold, White Deadnettle, Green Oat Straw and Marshmallow Root, it has an intimately balanced pH, is 100% plant-based, and has a ‘body-identical’ feel so you can connect with confidence, even when your climate down under is sensitive.
It contains no glycerine which can often be found in most intimate lubricants, and even at low concentrations can feed Candida albicans which is responsible for most cases of vaginal thrush.
It is pH balanced with the vagina – the vagina is naturally acidic at around pH 3.8 – 4.5. This is so that it can keep itself free from microbial infections – if the vagina becomes more slightly alkaline it can become more hospitable for opportunistic infection.
It has a low osmolarity, meaning it is less drying and damaging to vaginal mucosa. It contains lactic acid – which is produced naturally by the vagina as one of the defence mechanisms to help maintain its acidity and support a healthy vaginal microbiome.
Containing no chemicals thought to be toxic which is incredibly important as vaginal mucosa is some of the most absorbent tissue on the body. This means that it’s especially important that we know what is going on and in us. Lovingly made in the UK without glycerine, parabens, SLSs, hormone disrupters, cyclomethicone, cyclotetrasiloxane, chlorhexidine gluconate, Nonoxynol-9, propylene glycol, petroleum, petroleum-based ingredients, silicone oils, benzene, benzoic acid, benzocaine, flavours or fragrances.
It is 97% organic and is registered with the Soil Association – Wylde One is water based and has a lasting slick feeling whilst being non sticky and non-staining. Compatible with condoms and all types of toys.
The bright and lovely packaging is a composite material made from renewable sources of plastic and wood and is 100% recyclable as plastic (2 HDPE) or wood (81 paper and cardboard/plastic).
