We use the term “Intimate Cream” as opposed to “Personal Lubricant”. This makes purchasing the product more comfortable, and this product has multiple uses apart from intercourse! Women can experience vaginal dryness or itching from several causes, such as menopause, breastfeeding, and skin issues. This product is safe to use as a vaginal moisturiser, or for moisturising of other sensitive mucosal tissues such as a protruding prolapse. It may be used to help insert a pessary, dilator or even a suppository.
Personal lubricants are designed to decrease vaginal dryness during intercourse. There are many times when this will be more of an issue, such as while breastfeeding or post menopause.
The vagina is meant to have an acidic environment. This encourages the development of good bacteria. Olive & Bee does not upset this pH balance. Olive & Bee is also naturally antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory, hence helping to prevent irritation. Using an oil also acts as an emollient, which means it seals the skin to keep microbials out and allow healing.
Unfortunately oil based lubricants are not compatible with condoms. To be compatible, the lubricant must be water based, and then needs to have a preservative added. In order to create a 100% natural lubricant we realised that we were not able to achieve condom compatibility.
Olive & Bee is made in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, in South Australia. The ingredients are all Australian, the tubes are made in Australia, and all branding and promotional work is done in Australia. Olive & Bee is 100% Australian made and owned.
