Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
HoneyGifts has recently announced that it will only offer environmentally friendly and completely organic arousal products that make safe and romantic gifts for singles, couples, and provocative toys for him or her. Many synthetic lubricants now available in the market were first designed for use on car or as oven cleaners. The ingredients in the arousal products that people buy for their most sensitive parts could be harmful to their body and the environment. As a result, HoneyGifts aims to discourage the use of such ingredients in its products. The company also ensures that all its lubricant options are water-based natural ingredients that are not tested on animals and do not contain latex, rubber, plastic, and silicone.
Ingredients to Avoid
According to the article by Dr. Laurie Steelmith, a licensed naturopathic physician and acupuncturist with a 20-year private practice in Honolulu, found at http://goo.gl/5n8AZP, there are certain harmful chemicals that all users of arousal products should avoid. The 7 sexual lubricants that Dr. Steelmith advises against are given as follows:
1.Parabens are synthetic preservatives that seep through the skin and imitate estrogen in the body. Such chemicals are known to increase the risk of breast cancer in women.
2.Petroleum-based ingredients, including multipurpose lubricants like petroleum jelly, should be avoided at all costs as they contain impurities that may cause cancer.
3.Silicone oils may have toxic side effects for the body and the environment. Other names of this chemical are dimethicone, highly polymerized methyl polysilozane, methyl polysiloxane, mirasil DM 20 and viscasil 5M.
4.Phenoxyethanol is listed by the FDA as a moderate hazard as it leads to toxicity and skin irritation.
5.Glycerin and glucose found in some lubricants often feed yeast infections, also known as Candida.
6.Propylene glycol is known to be the cause behind burning or tissue irritation.
7.Chlorhexidine is a common ingredient in some multipurpose lubricants, such as K-Y jelly. This harmful chemical can irritate the skin and cause damage.
