Why don’t we use water in our It’s Nirvana Natural Personal Lubricants? At the heart of it, this product is something that you use on your skin and it should nurture the skin. We use natural oils, essential oils and herbs. The ingredients include natural antioxidants and botanicals that will nourish the skin.
Water is natural too but is usually used in personal lubricants because it is dirt cheap and it will dilute the product so the amount of product looks larger. Preparations with water though, can have a shorter shelf life as oxidation of the active ingredients occurs. Personal lubricants with water also need preservatives to keep harmful bacteria from developing.
Natural personal lubricants made with natural oils, essential oils, and herbs will be more concentrated and come in smaller bottles. This is a sign that what you are getting will have natural good properties and retain those properties for a good long while. Go ahead and check out other skin products in the bigger bottles. Check out the ones with water and then look for the chemicals that go with it to preserve freshness and kill bacteria. Then compare that to the list of natural oils, essential oils and herbs in It’s Nirvana natural personal lubricants.
