Coconut oil is packed full of magical healing benefits and there are many ways you can use it to enhance your life and beauty routine. I wondered myself if coconut oil was safe for women and men to use on a daily basis as an intimacy oil. So I went on a yearlong extravaganza finding any information I possibly could about this matter. Is coconut oil safe for our intimate parts?
We worked with scientists, doctorates, and studied at the Medical School of Irvine digging into all the research that’s ever been documented and made available all over the world.
After diligent study our conclusion was this; its been proven in many countries across the world that the oil helps prevent herpes and other viral infections due to its potent antiviral lauric acid. Another way to think of it is as a skin protectant. When having intercourse there are tiny micro tears that occur from friction witch is natural but hydrating the skin and tissue properly prevents this and creates a protective barrier between two bodies. This is not to say that coconut oil is good for everyone. Some are more sensitive than others and need to make decisions based on their own body knowledge.
We truly believe coconut oil is one of the best products out there because its made from natures grace, it’s incredibly moisturizing, and provides amazing nutrient and health benefits while being wonderfully versatile and antiaging.
So many lovers new and old wonder if you can use coconut oil between the sheets instead of other personal lubricants. Whether you want to try it out- even as massage oil,( I mean- using it for both is key here) Here we will detail as much as we can for you about using coconut oil in this nature so you can make the decision for yourself if this is something you would like to incorporate into your love life.
A Totally Natural Preservative
Other personal lubricants you can buy in the store contain many ingredients and chemicals that you may not be familiar with but truly cause harm to the body. Those ingredients are not ones that we want to put into our bodies. Using something natural is such a better choice if it is something that works for you. Not all coconut oil is created equal. Coconut oil is totally natural and free of any preservatives or toxins as long as it’s processed in a safe way without using heat or chemicals. We ensure 100% virgin organic coconut oil that is harvested sustainably. Vitamin E & K are naturally found in Coconut oil and sustain the shelf life of the oil. This magic pot protects it's self.
Anti-Fungal and Anti-Bacterial
Coconut oil contains natural anti-fungal properties, which help most women keep yeast infections at bay. Because of the antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, there is a slight chance that it could briefly disrupt your vagina’s natural pH balance, which could cause a yeast infection if you are prone to getting them. Any woman who has had a yeast infection in the past knows that is not something you want to deal with, so Women who are more prone to getting them, may have a sensitive balance of good and bad bacteria, making it easier for coconut oil to disrupt the balance.
Not Safe To Use With Latex Condoms
Coconut oil is considered an oil-based lube so it is not safe to use with latex; you are not able to use coconut oil with traditional condoms as well as some latex sex toys. The oil can break down the reliability of the condom and make it less efficient. There are condoms which are not made from latex and these may be suitable and safe for use with coconut oil. Please do your own research but here are the top brands:(COMING SOON)
Science of smell
Our noses are closest to our brain which is the largest sex organ we have as humans! 90% of our arousal begins with fascination and imagination.... You know when you walk by a store or get a whiff of a candle that catapults you to an island you visited years ago or to a childhood memory that’s so warm and cozy. That is the power this sense. Our pheromones are what attract us to our lovers and can drive them absolutely crazy.
Coconut oil has been used for centuries by island cultures to heal and protect the body on top of that the natural aroma of toasted vanilla coconut with a hint of Hawaiian tropics all while being completely holistic and hormone balancing for women. You probably have a few different products lying around the house that you use on a daily basis. Coconut oil could replace them all.
COCO LA VIE is what you need if you’re ready to ditch the toxic products in your life.
WHAT is “fragrance?”
Well, for starters it is the #1 chemical to avoid in skin products.
More than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals. These chemicals include: benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates, and a slew of other known toxins that are capable of causing cancer, birth defects, nervous-system disorders and allergies—some of which are cited on the EPA’s hazardous waste list.
Environmental Working Group (EWG) researchers found more than 75 percent of products listing the ingredient “fragrance” contained phthalates, which have been shown to disrupt hormone activity, reduce sperm counts, and cause reproductive malformation, and have been linked to liver and breast cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Fragrance can also cause inflammation in the skin (which leads to aging) and even trigger asthma and allergies. Additionally, studies by Dr. Philip J. Landrigan of the Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Center, link fetal exposure with autism, ADHD, and neurological disorders. So fragrence can be especially dangerous for expecting mothers.
In May 1999, in response to repeated complaints of respiratory, neurological, and other toxic effects following the use of Calvin Klein’s Eternity perfume, the Environmental Health Network of California hired two testing laboratories to identify the ingredients in the perfume. Analysis of these results by the Cancer Prevention Coalition, summarized in the author’s 2009 Toxic Beauty book, reveal the following:
26 ingredients whose “Toxicological properties have not been investigated,” or “toxicology properties have not been thoroughly investigated.”
- 25 ingredients that are “Irritants.”
- 5 ingredients that are “Skin sensitizers,” or allergens.
- 3 ingredients that show “Fetal, hormonal, and reproductive toxicity.”
- 2 ingredients that “May cause cancer.”
Despite fragrance known to be potentially dangerous, it is still not even required by law for companies to disclose the specific ingredients used to produce these fragrances. In the U.S., manufacturers can legally hide hundreds of synthetic chemicals in the one word—“fragrance”—without revealing what those ingredients are.
Many of us work hard to make good food choices—such as eating organic and avoiding hormones and GMOs—and we read nutrition labels. But how many of us read the labels of our bottles, sprays, and jars. Well with fragrance it is even more difficult, as it can even be found in products marked “unscented”. Even if the front label screams “fragrance-free,” products can still contain fragrance ingredients as a masking agent to cover unpleasant chemical smells.
Fragrances made out of “essential oils” can also be a problem because a lot of oils are adulterated and contaminated with chemicals, while some essential oils are not even natural, instead consisting of man-made ingredients and scents; fragrant oils. For instance, if you find a company claiming to use 100% natural watermelon or pineapple fragrances derived from oils, they may only be telling half the truth; there are no 100% natural watermelon or pineapple essential oils that smell like most people would want. These are fragrance oils man made to smell like watermelon or pineapple. It may seem sexy and natural, but it is far from it. It is really important to do research on a cosmetic company to find out how they are sourcing essential oils and choose products that don’t have the ingredients labeled “fragrance” or “parfum”.
The only way to really know the truth is to read the labels! If a manufacturer isn’t willing to list ALL of a product’s ingredients on its label, we must ask why?
With all of the research we have and the incredible knowledge readily available today, we must ask ourselves why we continue to subject ourselves to these unhealthy, and potentially dangerous ingredients. Brands have also done an amazing job in creating 100% natural products that smell and feel great.
