Estrogen

Estrogen is a set of chemical hormones that affects reproductive function and development. Estrogen primarily regulates the female reproductive system; while both men and women produce estrogen, women have a far higher concentration.

When a woman’s body cannot create enough estrogen, the walls of the vagina can become excessively dry. This often occurs as a side effect of birth control medications. Properly pH-balanced lubricants can help women with estrogen deficiencies have healthy, pleasurable sex.

DID YOU KNOW?

Menthol

Menthol is a concentration of oils derived from peppermint and other types of mint. It can also be made synthetically.

In personal lubricants, menthol serves several functions. It creates a tingling, cooling sensation when applied to the skin, and lubes with menthol are often marketed as sexual enhancers. Menthol can also act as a mild anesthetic. It is a safe substance, but people with mint allergies should avoid lubricants that use organic or synthesized menthol.
