I wasn't sure whether this would be better in Sexual Ethics and Politics, if the staff think so they can move it. I am not here to pass judgement on anyone for which lube they use, and I want to make that quite clear before I continue this post.

Basically, see thread title. I am not concerned with whether the product has been tested on animals in the past, as far as I'm concerned what's done is done. But I would prefer to use a lube that is not tested on animals now, I currently use KY Jelly and I'm not sure if that is or not. I can't promise I'll switch as soon as I get a suggestion, I have limits to what I can afford and also I have developed thrush from certain lube brands in the past so I want to exercise caution. I am looking for plain, water based lube, but if anyone has suggestions for silicone-based and/or flavoured lube, please post them here as well, as they may be of help to others, but remember to mention those details about it.

Some of the lubes I'm aware of that don't do any animal testing are:
• Pjur Eros Bodyglide
• Yes lubricant
• Slippery Stuff
• Velvet
• Sliquid lubes
• Good Clean Love
• Emirita lubes
• Pink lube
• Oh My lubes
• Hathor lubes
• Astroglide

Thankyou so much Heather, I did do an internet search before asking but a list didn't come up.

That's because, for the most part, we still can't internet search my brain. [Smile] But someday!

So, those are just some of the ones I know about: there are likely more.

Full disclosure - I work for Blossom Organics, so I might be a little biased [Smile]

We never test any of our formulas on animals.

Also, our lubes are pH balanced to the vagina, so they will not lead to thrush, yeast infections, bv or any other imbalances.
