To be organic, the item must be free of synthetic additives such as harsh or toxic chemicals, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and dyes. Also, according to the USDA, the product must not be processed using industrial solvents, irradiation, or genetic engineering. The remaining percentage of the product may only be comprised of foods or processed with additives on an approved list.
Manufacturers, regulators, and consumers look to NSF® International for the development of public health standards and certification programs that help protect the world’s food, water, consumer products, and environment. This certification is important because it means that the product offers users optimum performance without the hazards associated with dangerous chemical additives, fertilizers, or control agents
What's the main difference between Aloe Cadabra® lubricant and moisturizer and other organic/natural lubricants?
No. Cold is not good for the product. The product has an open shelf life of up to at most two years or through the expiration date on the box (which ever comes first).
How does a plant-based lubricant like Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer differ from a water-based or oil-based lubricant?
Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer has been used by many couples intending to conceive and is highly recommended by professionals in the fertility industry, in particular Alisa Vitti of FLO Living. The great thing about Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer is that it contains 95% organic aloe and other organic/natural, food-grade ingredients without potentially harmful chemicals. In other words, if you aren’t willing to eat it, you shouldn’t be putting it on your most sensitive areas! Of course, with questions like this it’s always best to consult your OB/GYN, who should have no concerns at all; however, please have your health professional give us a call right away for more information from us.
We are particularly grateful you are thinking like this because we are concerned with how toxic other lubricants are, and that many likely interfere both with vaginal health and sperm activity. Be careful what you use as some leading brand-name lubricants may kill sperm. That’s right: some personal lubricants are not fertility friendly and can act like a spermicide! Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer was designed to mimic vaginal mucus in its pH, which is critical to supporting healthy sperm. Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer is also glycerin-free to allow sperm to swim freely and help support sperm on their journey to fertilize the egg. Proper lubrication also allows things to just “work better” to achieve the goal.
According to standards published by the World Health Organization, our product has such a good “osmolality” rating that it is actually considered a moisturizer rather than all the other personal lubricants which are shown as partially or severely drying in effect. Our web site features an article by Dr. Laurie Steelsmith regarding osmolality for the benefit of you and other women in similar situations. This information is absolutely vital to you; don’t hesitate to contact us after you’ve read it with any additional questions or comments about the nature of personal lubricants in general.
Most menopausal women who experience extreme dryness find that applying 25-33% of a tube of Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer to the vagina during sexual activity which otherwise could be quite uncomfortable. You’ll find that your intimate moments will be even more pleasurable with Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer. If you are using Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer strictly as a moisturizer, you will want to apply it at least once daily in the morning and once in the evening and then massaging the material into the tissues (more frequently as needed, and don’t worry since it is organic and FDA-cleared you can’t use too much). Your applications will moisturize the tender and dry vaginal area. You may observe that the first few times you apply Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer to very dry skin, it will be rapidly absorbed. Use more as needed and feel safe applying multiple times daily for comfort and to help soothe irritated tissues. The product is 95% organic Aloe Vera so it acts better as a moisturizer than most facial creams. If after applying this way for three to five days you experience more comfort, reduce your moisturizing to the frequency that suits you best, including it on a daily basis if necessary. Just as with facial moisturizers, when the skin is already moist you will require much less. Be certain, however, to apply very liberally as noted above if you engage in intimate activities, which could cause soreness due to what would otherwise be dry skin.
Should internal dryness be an issue for you, it is possible to purchase an applicator at our on-line store or at many drug stores. If after repeated moisturizing you are still intensely dry, seek the advice of a physician to determine the reason. We urge you to bring your tube of Aloe Cadabra® lubricant & moisturizer to your doctor appointment so that s/he can see what you’ve tried to address your situation.
