Choosing which base is best for you - water based cream or silicone serum

Choosing a water based or silicone base to personalise your Lover's formulation can be as simple as a matter of textural choice. Both feel different and both feel incredible. Both are safe for use with condoms. Both are beautifully clean, won't stain your linen, and don't require a tidy up. 

Reasons to try silicone:

  • Our bespoke silicone formulations are long lasting and great for delicate and mature skin.
  • They can be used in water which can be a lot of fun.
  • Unfortunately Silicone lubricants should not be your go-to choice for silicone sex toy play.
  • Silicone is both slippy and sensuous. If you are into anal sex, silicone may be your most comfortable choice.

Reasons to try water based:

  • If you are using your Lover as a daily treatment, our aqueous formulation is designed to melt into skin to trap moisture, leaving skin supple.
  • It's a great choice for daily application for people who have removed pubic hair and whose delicate vulval skin is crying out for some extra love.

Reasons to try Lovers

Lovers formulations are bespoke and free of micro-flora hurting preservatives many over-the-counter lubricants contain.  Our formulations are pH perfect for the vagina.   You can customize your lover's formulation to suit your wants, needs and desires and to bring you pleasure. We apply lessons from science and western medicine to create unmatched formulations that are fit for purpose, practical and feel beautiful.
