At low concentrations, glycerin is a breeding ground for fungi, and in higher concentrations it causes damage to the mucosa. Glycerin is a key factor of high osmolality. Lubricants with high osmolality dry and damage the cells, it makes tissue more susceptible to infection.
Parabens (Paraben, methylparaben is, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben) Many people nowadays are trying to avoid the content of these synthetic preservatives in all that use. Despite the fact that parabens mimic the action of estrogen on the tissues, there are studies suggesting that they are related to increase risk of cancer of the breast. Parabens can irritate the skin and cause an allergic reaction.

They act as a sealant and drain so the necessary lubrication. Components oil-based can also contain impurities, the use of which is the cause of health problems, including cancer.

Grease is made of petroleum-based can destroy latex condoms, and to create an unfavorable vaginal environment, vulnerable to infection.
Menthol (Menthol) – irritating to the skin and can damage mucosa.

A side effect of toxic poisoning may be irritation of the skin. The high content of Phenoxyethanol can cause harm to the reproductive system, weaken the immune system and compromise the nervous system in newborns. Phenoxyethanol – chemical preservative that is used as a retainer in the production of perfumes, repellents and solvent binding cellulose acetate. Avoid this substance.
Propylene Glycol (Propylene Glycol) Is a potentially dangerous substance prohibited for use by many certification systems natural/organic cosmetics. Propylene glycol, and glycerin, is a key factor of high osmolality. Distinguish among the symptoms of burning and pain, irritation and allergic reactions. The lubricants often the composition includes propylene glycol. This substance is used as a solvent and preservative in food and tobacco, but also the main component used in electronic cigarettes.
Synthetic fragrances (Fragrance, Parfum) — are the most irritating ingredients. They include chemicals such as phthalates, which are irritants and can cause allergic reactions or interfere with hormone functions. Phthalates are associated with lower sperm count in men and reproductive defects in the developing male fetus (when the mother is exposed to phthalates during pregnancy). Laboratory analysis of top selling colognes and perfumes showed that the product contained an average of 14 chemicals not listed on the label, which can cause allergic reactions or interfere with hormone functions.
Alcohol (Alcohol, Ethanol) – may cause dryness and irritation. If a woman suffers from vaginal dryness, its presence in the composition of lubricants should be avoided.
Chlorhexidine (Chlorhexidine) the substance Is often included in greases and may cause irritation. Chlorhexidine – primarily antibacterial substance contained in antiseptics. Hlorgeksidin with frequent use it kills all the healthy bacteria, disrupting the natural balance of the vaginal flora and helping to irritation and increase the risk of development of infectious diseases.
Silicone (Methicone, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone) has a synthetic origin. Components of silicone can affect the functions of normal skin, enveloping her.
