The Butters is an oil lube made by Jerome Stuart Nichols, he also makes his own line of natural bath and body products. I always try to find lube with the least amount of chemicals in it. So a natural lube was a natural pick for me to want to try.
The Butters is an all-natural oil-based lubricant. The ingredients are super simple aloe vera gel, raw shea butter*, pure coconut oil, pure extra virgin olive oil, pure grapeseed oil, pure palm kernel oil*, pure soy lipid emulsion*, apple cider vinegar, and guar bean powder.
Each ingredient is picked because of beneficial properties that they have.
- Aloe provides pure, easy to absorb moisture.
- Coconut and grapeseed oil give your skin essential vitamins and lipids while offering immediate lubrication.
- Shea, palm, and soy condition tissues melt into slick long lasting lubrication and offer healing properties for delicate areas.
- Apple cider vinegar balances pH manages bacteria, prevents yeast infections, and gently cleanses.
- Guar gum increases the feeling of softness and helps mix any lubrication your body makes with The Butters.
All of this makes it 100% vegan, edible, wheat/gluten free. Plus users with vaginas have also reported less UTIs and yeast infections. With just the description of the ingredients, I was in love with this lube at first sight.
You know how to Butter me up
This just might be my new favorite lube to use! That is not something that I say lightly as I have been in love with lubes before such as Silquid. But there is just something about The Butters that it has become my preferred lube during masturbation and toy testing. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling afterward, I am almost certain that after such extensive use I have certainly moisturized my vulva quite a bit and even my pubic hair feels softer from use.
The ingredients are all familiar, having worked in a particularly popular natural band and body store in the past. Many of them are in those expensive lotions and I would be a liar if I said that I hadn’t used at least one of them in the past for the purposes of lubrication at least once in the past. It was mostly coconut oil so I didn’t fear for it to be harmful. However, it is not a thing I actually recommend.
It worked so nicely with the natural wetness that I felt like it just added to what I was already creating without being different from how my natural wetness feels. This was a wonderful feeling because sometimes I actually dislike the gel feeling of lines.
Also, I need to talk about the taste! I am the kind of person who will sometimes suck on my fingers during masturbation or sex. It seemed to give my natural taste a bit of a boost Almost like kettle cooked popcorn. A pleasant surprise really. But there is, of course, no sugar. The Butters enhanced my natural sweetness from what I could tell. But it was a surprise I wasn’t quite expecting.
The Butters has become a staple of my bedside table, while I may keep a bevy of lubes at my disposal not only for myself but my partners as well, this one will be my go-to before I pick anything else. But not only will I have it at my bedside, I will be sure to keep my smaller samples in my bag as it works as a wonderful balm for my lips as well as to get the fine flyaway hairs I sometimes get. The Butters is hands down for me one of the best organic lubes.
