Silicone Lubricant Brands

Find a Personal Lubricant for You

By

Updated May 28, 2014

Silicone is a synthetic substance. A lubricant containing it stays slippery longer than those that are water-based. A silicone lubricant is safe to use with condoms but may be difficult to wash off your body, clothes, or sheets since they are water-resistant. Those with sensitive skin may especially want to consider them; they typically do not cause allergic reactions or skin irritations. These personal lubricants are more expensive than water-based options. When choosing a silicone-based lubricant, know that the higher quality brands should list the ingredient dimethicone first. Here, some picks worth considering:
