Wet Personal Lubricants, manufactured by Trigg Laboratories in Valencia, California, has a new line of jelly personal lubricants. Many people prefer jelly lubricant over other water-based lubes because it is extra thick and not runny.

These two new jelly lubricants – Wet Original Gellee and Kiwi Strawberry Gellee are water-based. This means that they are safe to use with latex condoms and sex toys. An additional perk, these jelly lubricants have a sweet smell that can mask the smell of latex (if you happen to be in a position where this added benefit could be useful!).

The Wet Gellee personal lubricants are often enjoyed because of their ultra-thick consistency. These jelly lubricants have staying power. Wet Gellee stays where you put it, so Wet Gellee is also a great choice for toy play. Their thick formula helps to solve the "mess" issues associated with the use of liquid and gel lubes. Because Wet Gellee doesn’t run, you don't have to worry about it dripping all over you, your clothes, and your sheets.

Wet Gellee also has a silky smooth feeling and can keep up with the best of you. It’s long-lasting formula promises to endure even during rather rigorous activity. Plus, this lubricant tends to not cause irritation (sometimes common when switching lubes).

This jelly lubricant has the extra advantage of being sugar-free, stain-free, and non-sticky. It may be helpful to know that if Wet Gellee happens to reach your tongue, it's colorless, clear formula is not harmful if ingested.

Wet Kiwi Strawberry Gellee:

This gel-based lubricant is scented with a sweet, fruity flavor. It can be a fun and yummy twist to oral pleasures. The scented and flavored Wet Kiwi Strawberry Gellee is the perfect choice if you anticipate that your face may end up somewhere that you’d prefer smelled and tasted more like fruit! You can use this jelly lubricant to add a little flavor to your sexual activities without the worry of the stickiness that comes along with using real fruit.

Possible Interactions:

Both Wet Original Gelle and Wet Kiwi Strawberry Gellee have a sweet taste because they contain sucralose. These personal lubricants may not be the right choice if you or your partner is allergic to sucralose.

Keep in mind, these jelly lubricants also have glycerin and parabens. Parabens are used in these lubes because they assist in stopping microbial/bacterial growth, but parabens could impede normal, hormonally-regulated processes and can cause a variety of toxic and physiological effects.

Wet Gellee also contains glycerin, a sweet-tasting preservative. Some women may be more prone to yeast infections when using glycerin-containing lubricants.

If you are concerned about the ingredients in your personal lubricants, you can look into Wet Company’s Wet Naturals line (such as Wet Beautifully Bare). This line of lubricants are free of parabens, glycerin and sugar. However, they have a more liquid consistency – so they do not offer the thickness that many are looking for in the Wet Gellee lubricants.

Wet Gellee Quality and Safety:

All Wet's products are manufactured and tested in compliance with FDA's strict Medical Device Quality System Regulations and current Good Manufacturing Practices. This means that both Wet Original Gellee and Kiwi Strawberry Gellee meet the highest industry standards.
