Silicone Lubricants, What Is The Difference?

By on June 24, 2015

POMPANO BEACH, Fla.- Silicone has become the star ingredient in the world of personal lubricants. Due to its diverse and numerous benefits, silicone has been used in products for years, including by condom manufacturers to lubricate their condoms. It was not until much later that silicone’s ability to dramatically enhance sexual responsiveness became known and silicone-based lubricant formulas were sold separately on the market. Makers of Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Based Lubricant have invested in this star ingredient, as well.

One constant in our ever-changing society is that everyone grows older. There is always a demand for products that accommodate aging and the unique challenges it brings, specifically when it comes to sexual intimacy. Silicone-based lubricants do just that.

Silicone lubricants are typically formulated with four or less ingredients and do not contain any water. Users report a silky, velvety feeling that is unparalleled by lubricants formulated without silicone. However, not all silicone lubricants are created equal. Better quality lubricants use more of the ingredient dimethicone, which makes the formula denser, providing a much slicker, silkier feel. While this can affect the cost, about only half as much as water-based silicone is needed, making the price about the same in the end.

Silicone lubricants are not absorbed by the skin or mucus membranes, and consequently last longer than their water-based counterpart. For this reason, they are more preferable for menopausal women or women with certain medical conditions causing dryness. Several national television physician shows have come out in favor of silicone use for these groups. Since silicone lubricant is not absorbed and stays outside the body, it does not carry the same concerns as silicone breast implants.

Many silicone-based lubricants are available on the market, all with varying performance and quality. Swiss Navy Premium Silicone Based Lubricant, manufactured by MD Science Lab, uses only the highest-grade silicone to provide a rich, silky feel and leaves the skin velvety smooth. It is also unscented and contains no preservatives, making it safe for sensitive skin. Swiss Navy Lubes comes in several sizes to meet individual needs, ranging from 2-32 ounces.
