When it comes to intimate products, it’s essential to be aware of the ingredients used. Personal lubricants are no exception, and with the growing trend towards a cleaner and more natural beauty routine, finding the best natural options has become a priority.


At La Nua, we understand the importance of using products that are clean, safe, and gentle on the body. While personal preference plays a role in choosing the right lube, it’s crucial to prioritize body-friendliness and safety. 


Of course, we can wax lyrical about the fantastic properties of all our lubes…but we know that some lube users may have questions about the ingredients in each lube. That’s why in this article, we’ll delve into the unique ingredients and potential benefits that make our lubes stand out. 

What sets us apart?

What ingredients are used in La Nua products?


We use only the purest ingredients; all flavors are natural and vegan-friendly. Furthermore, all of our water-based formulas (including the unflavored ones) are safe for consumption.


Our carefully selected ingredients include: 

Acorus Calamus Root 


Acorus Calamus Root Extract, commonly known as Sweet Flag, has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its potential health benefits, which include the potential to reduce inflammation and improve circulation.


Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract


Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, commonly referred to as Aloe Vera, has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties and is referred to as the “plant of immortality” by ancient Egyptians. It is widely known for its moisturizing and soothing properties, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products. 


It provides anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiseptic, and soothing benefits. It is also rich in natural vitamins such as Vitamin B complex, folic acid, Vitamin C, and other beneficial compounds.


Cellulose Gum


Cellulose Gum acts as a stabilizer to maintain the product’s original texture and physical characteristics and also assists in retaining moisture. It is a plant-based ingredient and is considered safe for use by the FDA.


Chondrus Crispus Extract


Chondrus Crispus Extract, also known as Red Algae, is a rich source of Vitamins A and E. Vitamin A plays a crucial role in supporting reproductive health and immune function, promoting healthy collagen and elastin formulation, influencing cells to behave in a youthful and healthy manner, and supporting the skin’s immune system and natural moisturizing. 


Vitamin E, an antioxidant, helps protect cells from damage throughout the body, keeps moisture in the skin, and softens it. Red Algae also has high sulfur content, which contributes to its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and non-comedogenic properties and balances the skin microbiome.


Citric Acid 


Citric Acid helps maintain a pH level of 4-4.5, which is within the natural vaginal pH range. Citric Acid is a weak organic acid that naturally occurs in many fruits, such as lemons and limes.


Cocamidopropyl Betaine


Derived from coconut oil, Cocamidopropyl Betaine is known for its foaming and cleansing properties, which help loosen and remove impurities.




Dimethicone is a silicone polymer known for its smooth, silky texture and ability to create a protective barrier on the skin. This makes it an ideal ingredient in personal lubricants, as it can help reduce friction and provide a smooth, moisturizing effect during intimate activities.




Dimethiconol is a derivative of dimethicone and has similar properties with added hydration benefits. In personal lubricants, dimethiconol can help increase the lubricant’s viscosity and provide a smooth, silky feel while helping to hydrate the skin.


Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract


Ginkgo Biloba, also known as Ginkgo, is a plant extract rich in antioxidants. It is known for benefits such as improved circulation and reduced anxiety. Ginkgo Biloba extract can help improve blood flow and reduce discomfort, making intimate activities more comfortable and enjoyable. Additionally, its antioxidant properties may help protect against damage from free radicals.




This ingredient is derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in plants, and is used to create a smooth and silky texture that can help reduce friction and irritation during intimate activities.


Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender)


A flowering plant in the mint family, Lavender essential oil has been used for centuries to promote calm and relaxation. These calming properties of lavender can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation, which can be especially beneficial during sexual activity. It’s also known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help prevent the spread of infections and promote overall vaginal health.


Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract (Maca)


Maca is a root that’s native to the Andes Mountains in Peru. It’s been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties, including as an aphrodisiac, energy booster, and mood enhancer. Maca is also rich in antioxidants and has been shown to improve overall health. These properties can help create a more pleasurable and enjoyable sexual experience.


Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract (Kelp)

Removes toxins, soothes skin and helps regulate skin tone and texture. It can also help regulate the pH balance of the vagina and promote healthy skin.


Natto Gum

This natural ingredient keeps the lube moist and acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells from damage and promoting overall vaginal health.


Potassium Sorbate


This ingredient is a salt derived from sorbic acid, found naturally in some fruits and berries. It acts as an antimicrobial agent that stops the spread of microorganisms, keeping products fresh and effective.



Used to enhance the texture and absorption, this ingredient acts as a carrier for the other beneficial ingredients. Propanediol is derived from corn and is a safe and eco-friendly ingredient.


Sodium Benzoate


This ingredient is an antimicrobial agent that helps prevent the growth of microorganisms, which can help keep products fresh and effective for longer.


Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate


This ingredient is a stabilizer and rinsing aid that helps mist and foam cleaners rinse and cleanse effectively.


Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa)


Cocoa butter is a popular ingredient in chocolate and skincare products due to its moisturizing properties. It is derived from the cocoa tree’s seeds, native to Central and South America. Cocoa butter has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures for its medicinal properties, including as a treatment for skin ailments since it provides a soothing barrier to the skin, helping to preserve moisture and prevent dryness.


Tynanthus Panurensis Extract (Clavo Huasca) 


Clavo Huasca is a woody vine that grows in the Amazon rainforest. This ingredient is considered a herbal aphrodisiac and is traditionally used for its potential mood-enhancing and anti-inflammatory properties.


Know What Your Body Likes…or Doesn’t Like!


It’s essential to be aware of what your body likes or doesn’t like when it comes to personal lubricants. Like fingerprints, each vagina is unique—what works for one individual may not always work for another. If you have specific sensitivities or concerns, it’s crucial to do your research and choose a lubricant that is compatible with your body.


At the same time, recognize and understand that you are the expert on your own body. No matter your sexual orientation or gender identity, you know your body best and what feels good for you. Whether you’re looking to increase sexual arousal, improve lubrication, or promote vaginal health, choosing a product that suits your needs is crucial.

In this article, we’ll dive into the juicy details and discover the unique qualities of the two main lube categories: water-based and silicone-based. Whether you’re planning to use toys, enjoy a solo sesh, or indulge in some oral, say goodbye to bland sex and hello to a world of wet, wild, and oh-so-comfortable play!


Let’s Sexplore the World of Lubes


Finding the right lube can often feel like a bit of a brain teaser. To help you find your perfect lube, here are some questions to consider:


  • When do you plan to use the lube: during sex, solo play, or sex toy fun?
  • Which sex positions are you hoping to enhance with lube? 
  • Where do you plan to get frisky? (Different lubes are suited for different environments, like the shower or your partner’s silk bed sheets!)
  • What are your sex toys made of? Some materials may react differently to different types of lube. 
  • Will you be using condoms or dental dams during sex? Make sure to choose a latex-safe lube. 
  • Do you have any allergies or sensitivities to consider? Lubes come in all sorts of varieties, including vegan and pH-balanced options. 


If you use these questions as a guide, then choosing the right lube should be a breeze. Don’t worry; you’ve got this! 


Gentle (yet versatile) Water-Based Lube


Water-based lube is the most popular and widely used type of lubricant. It’s safe to use with both latex and non-latex condoms, dental dams, and gloves, making it a versatile choice. And it’s gentle enough to use with all sex toys, so it’s perfect for solo play. 


One small drawback of most water-based lubes is that they tend to dry out and get a bit sticky (hint: ours don’t!). Cleanup is also hassle-free since water-based lube washes off sheets, toys, and bodies easily. 


Water-based lube is an excellent choice if you have sensitive skin or are looking for a simple lube option. It’s also made without added ingredients that could cause irritation, so the risk of genital discomfort is low.


Silky, Long-Lasting Silicone Lube 


If you’re looking for a lube that will last throughout a marathon session without reapplication, silicone lube is the way to go! This lube is thicker than water-based lube and provides a long-lasting, slippery experience.


Since the anus doesn’t naturally lubricate like the vagina, silicone lube is a must-have for anal play. Its thicker texture makes it a great option for comfortable and friction-free anal sex.


If you’re partial to steamy shower sex, you’d already know that water washes away your natural lubrication. But there’s a way to get around that little issue… just use silicone lube! (That said, while you’re getting all slippery in the shower, be careful not to actually slip in the shower!)


Cleaning up after using silicone lube may take a tad extra effort, as it doesn’t wash off easily. You need to keep in mind that silicone lube can damage delicate surfaces and fabrics, so choose wisely before applying.


Lastly, it’s important to note that while silicone lube is safe to use with condoms, you should avoid using it on silicone-coated sex toys. The lubricant will break down the toy’s material, leading to damage over time. (Something nobody wants… EVER!) To keep your sex toys in top condition, play it safe and use water-based lube instead.


Fun, Flavored Lube


Ah, flavored lube… kind of like your favorite child, except this is the type of knowledge you don’t share because, you know, unconditional love and all!


Flavored lubes are fantastic because they bring an edible element to the experience that can heighten the excitement. Adding another dimension to intimate play, flavored lube is an excellent option for oral and manual sex, particularly for those who are taste-driven. The addition of flavors and scents set the mood for a sensual encounter, evoking pleasant memories.


For those who like to combine food and sex, flavored lube offers a cleaner alternative to messy treats like whipped cream or chocolate. Lubes come in several flavors (think minty, fruity, or sweet) that enhance the experience for your taste buds while also providing extra moisture where it’s needed most! By incorporating another sense into your sexual routine, you can encourage a more mindful approach to eating and intimate pleasure.


And if you’re looking to spice up foreplay, flavored lube is a great way to do it. Let your partner drizzle some on your inner thighs, and enjoy the sensation of cleaning it up with their tongue. The possibilities are endless!


Some people avoid flavored lubes because it’s assumed that, because they’re generally sweet, they must contain sugar (a massive no-no!) While this may be true for flavored lube brands, there are lubes with ZERO sugar, leaving your vagina happy and healthy. 


Lube: The Safety Scoop 


When it comes to lube, you’ll need to ensure you’re playing safely. While using lube is generally safe for many people, there are some ingredients you want to steer clear of. 


What do we mean by that? 


Well, here’s the thing…the lube market isn’t strictly regulated, which means you can end up with some not-so-great ingredients in your bottle. 


To avoid any irritation:


  1. Stay away from lubes with glycerin, glycerols, parabens, petroleum, nonoxynol-9, or chlorhexidine gluconate listed on the label
  2. Keep an eye out for lubes that are pH balanced


If you forgot the lessons from your high school science class: the vagina has its own pH level that helps keep the good bacteria thriving. The ideal vaginal pH range is moderately acidic, falling between 3.8 and 4.5. However, this can vary slightly depending on your stage of life. For women in their reproductive years (ages 15 to 49), a vaginal pH of 4.5 or lower is considered normal. 


It’s important to note the significance of vaginal pH, as it acts as a protective barrier. If that balance gets thrown off (which can happen with lower-quality lubes), you’re more likely to get yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis. So, when shopping for lube, remember that lube ingredients are just as important as the type of lube you choose.


It’s Your Body… Choose Your Lube Wisely!


Picking the right lube for you can elicit new sensations and take your sex life to the next level. Whether you go for a silicone, water-based or flavored variety, there’s a lube for everyone.


At La Nua, we’re fanatical when it comes to making sure that ONLY the cleanest, safest ingredients are used in all our products. This commitment to quality allows for a superior experience no matter which type of lube you choose.

When it comes to sex, we often rely on the rule: the wetter, the better. Given that lube provides wetness, it’s fair to say that sex is better with lube! Yet, despite its benefits, lube is often viewed as an afterthought.


With several misconceptions about its purpose and use, it’s time to clear things up. If you only associate lube with vaginal dryness, it’s time to broaden your horizons. Instead, think of it as reducing friction, creating smoother skin, and enhancing your overall sexual experience – no matter your age, gender, or preference.


If you’re still unsure about what lube is and why you should be using it, no sweat; we’ve got you covered! Whether you’re new to lube or a seasoned pro, let’s get slick and explore why you need lube in your life.


What are the Benefits of Lube?


Before we dive into the benefits, let’s start with the basics. 


Personal lubricant, commonly known as lube, is a liquid or gel used during sexual activity to reduce friction between body parts or between a body part and a sex toy. Lube increases pleasure and reduces pain during penetrative sex, masturbation, or sex toy play.


A common misconception is that vaginal wetness is an automatic response to sexual arousal. While this may be true for some people, many experience vaginal dryness, a common but manageable concern. Instead of ignoring the issue and pushing through pain and discomfort, lube can help solve the problem.


Although it may be an essential tool for pleasure and sexual wellness, some individuals may be more intimidated by the thought of asking their partner to use lube than they are by the friction caused by dryness! It’s important to remember that lube is not just for people with vaginas; anyone can benefit from using it. 


Don’t be ashamed to use lube to enhance your sexual satisfaction and make things safer and sexier.


Why Lube is Always a Good Idea


The right lubricant can boost your confidence and encourage you to try new things. But most importantly, it makes sex more fun! 


Here’s why you should start using lube today:


1. It gets things moving


It doesn’t matter how turned on you are–there’s bound to be a time that you’re about to get down with someone… but the message to your vadryna is slightly delayed!


There are many reasons you could be experiencing dryness (and yes, they’re all pretty normal!) Whether you’re feeling anxious, taking certain medications, or at a particular stage of your menstrual cycle, vaginal dryness can strike at any time.


But don’t worry, that’s the beauty of lube! It helps get things moving smoothly so you can focus on the experience, savor every moment, and make things feel a whole lot better.


2. It can keep you going for longer


While hot, passionate impromptu quickies are great, nothing quite compares to a long, intense, passionate session. If you want to prevent dryness and chafe from spoiling the fun—lube is a must! 


Guaranteed to keep everything slick and wet, you can go on for as long as you like, allowing you to switch positions, try new things, and enjoy every sensational second.


3. It can heighten pleasure


Lube is more than just a slippery substance; it’s a fun and essential part of any intimate moment. With various textures, sensations, and flavors, lube can take pleasure to the next level. 


In fact, a study by the University of Indiana in 2009 showed that lube made sex more pleasurable for more than 70% of participants.


4. It makes foreplay more fun


If you’ve always assumed that lube is just for sex…think again! While there are many creative ways to incorporate lube into foreplay, we’re particularly fond of a sensual massage. Applying a little lube early on is a fantastic way to get things going.


Dim the lights, put on some relaxing, soothing music, and get to work with the help of your favorite lube. Gently warm it in your hands before working carefully over your partner’s body, paying close attention to the contour and curve. 


5. It can be used with sex toys


Lube is versatile… It’s fantastic with one person, many people, or even when you prefer a little ‘me time.’ One of our favorite uses is with sex toys. Using lube with a vibrator during masturbation can provide new sensations and experiences.


It’s important to note that any silicone sex toy or vibrator will require water-based lubrication since silicone-based lubricants may (most likely will) damage soft rubber.


6. It can stop condoms from breaking


Using lube with a condom is a wise choice. Aside from feeling (ah!)mazing, when lube is used with a condom, there’s less friction, reducing the risk of the condom tearing and ensuring effectiveness when used correctly. 


But did you know that lube can be used inside a condom? Add a few drops of lube inside the tip of the condom before rolling it on to experience a whole new sensation that many people love. Feel free to add more lube to the outside of the condom once it’s on.


7. It’s ideal for anal sex


The anus, unlike the vagina or penis, does not always provide adequate natural lubrication during sex. Apply lube liberally during foreplay for a relaxing effect, during anal sex, or while using anal sex toys for an overall more pleasurable experience.


8. Anyone can use lube for any type of play


The idea that there is a “typical” lube user is inaccurate. It can and is used by people of all genders, ages, and sexual orientations, as well as during masturbation with or without a sex toy.


Here’s a great tip… Lube up before you go down. Producing enough saliva to lubricate oral sex can sometimes be challenging. Having your lube on standby can be a real game-changer for both sexes.
