Lube scientists-Your thoughts on this experimental formula
  • Hi Guys,

    Found an organic body balm that is composed of Olive Oil, Beeswax, and Castor oil. All ingredients are organic.

    2 ounces, 6 bucks.

    Now, I think, as in food, the ingredients listed first, represent the highest percentage of the total. Could be wrong. What are your first impressions on how this might work as is? It has almost the same properties as Shea butter, however, the beeswax keeps it from fully absorbing into the hands, which may be the key to super slickness. Melts a bit faster than Shea to the touch, not that much though. Will follow up after testing.

    What is the brand name of the product you are using? Badger?

    At 3 dollars per ounce, that is one expensive lube! In terms of the ingredients themselves, I don't see any problem, but it would seem to me that the "Royal Jelly" recipe that folks have been cooking up here in the forum is far more cost effective. Granted, there is more of an investment up front, but in the long run it will save you money. If price is no object, perhaps your product is worth looking into. Let us know how it works out.

  • Yeah, you hit the nail on the head J4, that is the brand.

    Ok, here is the report: It is muchhhhhh better than my brand of unrefined shea butter, which was O ut o f A frica. My shea was not well suited for our particular application, lol, it was just too thin and melted right of the aneros. This castor/beeswax/olive oil trifecta is slick, but not slick enough for my taste. I'm going to have to blend my own. I may just do castor and beeswax. Any ever try just beeswax??

    Like I said, my brand of shea was bad for this app. So, I prefer this. My .02.

    My personal favorite is Slippery Stuff Gel; get the big 16 oz pump, it's the best deal. It's really thick and lasts and lasts. I use one- to two shots from a Lube Shooter, which is not made anymore, but there is a blue one called the Lube Launcher Blue, that is almost the same that should work just fine. I also smear a thin film of Vaseline on the Aneros to make it extra slippery and help in cleanup.
  • Thanks for the input Badger, I'm going all natural. I think that Slippery stuff is probably a manufactured product. Just throwing out some of my experiences on these natural finished products. I'm sure some of you are dead sick of lube posts......haha.

    Slippery Stuff is designed for Medical anal use. It's even been tested and proven in a medical test to see what lube is safest for extended anal use, and Slippery Stuff won hands down; in fact, it was the only one the medical test discovered was safe enough for extended anal use. Here's the article:

    AEGiS-CATIE News: Intriguing findings from study on lubricants - March 29, 2007

    And there was a thread a while ago about which lubricant is safest, which can be found here:

    An informed choice is always the best, and natural is not always the safest.
