Sexual lubricant, when made well and with healthy and natural ingredients, is a wonderful aid for more pleasurable sex that involves penetration. But lube is also great for foreplay and sensual massages or touch, especially in our erogenous zones. Depending on the ingredients, lube can increase arousal, intensify pleasure, and even reduce pain or inflammation. 

There’s no shame in needing or wanting to use lube—or sex toys, for that matter! Our only recommendation is to use products that are as healthy and eco-friendly as they are potent. Here are our favorite nontoxic lubes to try:

Best Overall | Best CBD | Best Subtle Scent 

1. Tabu

Sexiest Feature | Recommended by top OBGYNs and pelvic floor experts
Ingredients | Plant-based and vegan ingredients including organic aloe leaf, organic passion flower, and organic peony root; free from parabens, fragrances, hormones, and glycerin; water-based
Cost | $39

Tabu is a firm believer that pleasure never comes with an expiration date (say it louder for the people in the back!)—which is to say, this California-based brand is destigmatizing sexual wellness for older women. The science-backed and health-first company addresses common concerns like dryness, atrophy, low libido, and more with its personal massager and natural lubricant. We love that the Aureum Lubricant is clean, natural, made in the USA, FDA-cleared, and hypoallergenic (among many other things). Snag a Golden Hour Kit for the whole package.

2. Foria

Sexiest Feature | Only two organic ingredients
Ingredients | Organic MCT coconut oil & broad-spectrum CBD
Cost | $44

Liven up your “play” time with Foria’s natural CBD lube & sex oil. It’s formulated with just two ingredients—organic coconut oil and USDA organic-certified, regeneratively-grown USA hemp—but they sure are effective. If you don’t believe us, check out the reviews that say you’ll be “out of your own body” or “seeing sounds and hearing colors.” 👀

3. Playground

Sexiest Feature | Bottle and cap made from 50% post-consumer recycled plastic
Ingredients | Safe and natural ingredients, superherb adaptogens, vegan, water-based, clean fragrance formulas (fragrance-free options)
Cost | $24

Playground’s clean and water-based lubricants are perfect for spicing up your next date night—though we also recommend them for a solitary sesh. 😉 The ph-balanced formulas offer a lasting and silky slip, and the subtle scents invite intimacy without being overbearing. This lube is made with full-sensory superherb adaptogens too, increasing blood flow and enhancing orgasm. Best of all, Playground has the most fun and—yes—playful packaging! Less stigma, more stimulation for the win.


Sexiest Feature | Hemp-based botanical CBD lube
Ingredients | Organic, food-grade ingredients; natural oils
Cost | $48

TOCA’s (Spanish for touch) plant-based lube and oils are perfect for stimulating, warming, and aiding in sexual pleasure. We love this natural lubricant for its hemp-based botanical CBD properties that increase arousal and prolong orgasm. Moreover, TOCA’s lube helps balance vaginal flora and is a perfect tonic for daily use. Compare or combine with Qulo, their warming CBD intimate oil specifically designed for anal play but safe for all erogenous zones.

5. Maude 

Sexiest Feature | Naturally hydrating
Ingredients | Organic, aloe-based, glycerin- & paraben-free
Cost | $25

We love this lube’s beautiful, discreet bottle design, making it perfect to keep on your nightstand. Maude’s pleasure potion is made in the USA with organic ingredients, including aloe, for natural and pH-balancing hydration.

6. Sutil

Sexiest Feature | Biodegradable tube
Ingredients | Eco-certified ingredients, water-based, glycerin- & paraben-free, taste-free
Cost | $16–$43

Sutil’s water-based lube is made from eco-certified ingredients; doctors, pelvic floor specialists, and sex therapists have recommended this lubricant for a healthier and longer-lasting glide. Choose from organic flavors like coconut, vanilla, or mint in their classic formulas, or try one of their Love Potion massage oils for a rich and aromatic experience.

7. Lola

Sexiest Feature | One-click lid pump
Ingredients | Made with 100% natural ingredients
Cost | $13

Lola’s organic lube is water and aloe-based, helping to mimic the body’s natural moisture and maintain vaginal pH balance. It is also free from fragrance, petrochemicals, and parabens, and includes organic vanilla and lemon for natural flavor.

8. Coconu

Sexiest Feature | Stimulates the body’s natural lubrication
Ingredients | Organic coconut oil, organic coconut water, organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, organic sunflower oil, and organic shea butter
Cost | $25–$35

Coconu is a leader in the natural lube field, the first company to create a coconut oil-based lubricant that is USDA certified organic. Using the highest quality certified organic ingredients, these lubes are designed for internal and external use, with or without toys, and safe for vaginal or anal penetration. They are also 100% edible and cruelty free! Shipped in discreet packaging, the brand also works in partnership with Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance, donating a portion of its profits toward research.

9. Quim

Sexiest Feature | Cannabis-infused oil that intensifies sensation and increases libido
Ingredients | Plant-based oils & natural ingredients
Cost | $20–$48

Quim (taboo slang for vagina) is a line of plant-based lubricants infused with soothing ingredients, including apricot and hazelnut oils, as well as passionfruit extract. This lube also includes CBD and cannabis to intensify sensation and nourish our bodies. We love the empowering message behind this brand and likewise believe in deepening self-connection by giving our sensitive parts a little extra love.
