In case you need a little reminder, your vagina is one of the most absorbent and sensitive parts of your body. So, what exactly are you putting into it? OSKE’s ingredient approach is that less is always more and, after extensive research, we chose six essential ingredients that are absolutely safe without compromising on quality and feel. All you need and nothing more.
Also known as… water, and the preferred base for our lubricant. We specifically chose a water-base because it’s the least likely to impact negatively on your body’s natural state.
Where to begin? The healing properties of Aloe Vera are extensive and still being discovered. We’ve included it in OSKE because it is widely considered to be gentle for all skin types and its natural gel feel lends itself well to a silky lubricant. OSKE uses Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice to ensure absolute purity.
When it comes to creating the perfect gel-like consistency, we’ve chosen to use Xanthan Gum. Created through bio-fermenting the bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris, Xanthan Gum is sustainable and, when produced on corn like ours, totally vegan. It’s also edible and used in many foods (seriously, you’d be surprised where it pops up!) which means it’s tried, tested and perfectly safe for human consumption.
The vagina is about as complex as the female psyche. In other words, don’t mess with it! Whatever you’re putting into your vagina, it's important not to disturb the natural balance of flora, hormones and acidity. We’ve included pharmaceutical grade Citric Acid to harmoniously match the vagina’s natural PH levels.
Preservatives have a bad rep, and in some cases, that’s fair. But there are preservatives which are natural, harmless and ensure your safety. Let’s be clear, we’re asking you to apply OSKE to your most sensitive body parts, there’s no way we’d give you a product that isn’t undeniably safe. We’ve chosen to include two salts, anti-fungal Sodium Benzoate and anti-bacterial Potassium Sorbate which are both naturally derived, food grade and FDA approved. FYI, we only use these preservatives in tiny proportions. Like we said, only the essentials and nothing more.
