Dr. T Recommends: Favorite Lube Picks Across The Globe

If you have been following my work here and, on my socials, you know I emphasize on why not all lubes are good lubes and why choosing the right one really matters. Lubricants can come in different types, those being water based, silicone based, oil based and hybrid types.

If that wasn’t easy to choose from, we have a multitude of brands globally trying to make their mark in sexual wellness domain by claiming to create lube formulas that are best for your body. While it takes an extensive research and experimentation to find which lube suits your body the best, I’m here today to highlight some of my favourite lubricant (products and brands) globally that I and research can definitely vouch for being:

  • within body tolerable osmolality levels

  • pH considered

  • made with all the good ingredients and

  • focus and/or sustainability

If you do not know what I’m talking about, you can watch the video below where I unpack about what these types of lubes are and why osmolality, pH and ingredients matter in lubricants.

Now, let's dive in, shall we?

1. That Sassy Thing:

A brand created with love and grown in Indian by Sachee Malhotra is everything this country needs to throw away those obnoxious ointments as That Sassy Thing comes with a range of sexual and menstrual wellness. They are made with all the good ingredients, balanced according to the vaginal pH and curated by keeping the bodies with vulvas in mind.

3. Good Clean Love:

Good Clean Love began back in 2003, when founder Wendy Strgar began experimenting with oils she found in her kitchen, and Good Clean Love’s line of aphrodisiac Love Oils was born. Soon after, she learned about the harmful ingredients most personal lubricants contain and set out to create a safe, organic personal lubricant: Almost Naked, which is by far one of the few iso-osmotic lubricants that’s out there.

7. Yes Lube:

The idea that started The Yes Yes Company Ltd in 2003 arose between two friends, Susi Lennox and Sarah Brooks. Their ideology is simple- making a product with purity. By purity they mean all Yes products are free from hidden synthetic chemicals (harmful or not) and mucosal irritants, made from all the natural ingredients that look good and feel great on skin with complete transparency about the ingredients. And the best part they cover all the body parts by regulating lube pHs that suit the genitals.
