We all know my love for The Butters as a lube made by The Butters Hygienics co. Which is run by Jerome Stuart Nichols. Not only did I rave about it in my review, but I have been quoted on the packaging!
Needless to say. When Jerome reached out for me to review their Cocoa Butter forumal I was excited. Then I moved. The holidays happened and it got caught under a wave of other things. Yet through all of my other reviews. The Butters was there. Why? Because 9 out of 10 times I am using it. It stays on my bedside table as my preferred personal lubrication. Both the AleoxShae formula and the Cocoa Butter. Why? Because they are so different for me!
The Butters with Cocoa Butter
Let’s start off with the change in ingredients. The Butters with Cocoa Butter has not only the addition of Cocoa Butter. But it is also soy and palm oil-free! The fact that it is palm oil free excites me the most because of how much we are deforesting a lot of the rainforest for palm oil alone. When there are so many other amazing alternatives. So the fact that The Butters Hygienics Co offers this is fantastic.
The rest of the ingredients are organic aloe vera, raw shea butter, pure coconut oil, pure extra virgin olive oil, pure grapeseed oil, apple cider vinegar, guar bean powder. This makes a much thicker lube than the original recipe. Making it less drippy and softer in feeling against the skin. All of the ingredients also make it hypoallergenic.
However, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients, please do not use it. There are those who have allergies to things such as aloe vera. So keep that in mind!
So What Do I Think?
As I said before, I use both formulas. However what I use the Butters with Cocoa Butter for is much different. For me, it is my preferred lube for doing anything anal! From dildos to butt plugs, if it is going in my butt I am using it. I find that the thickness makes it much easier to use. Nothing is getting too slippery on my hands. Also, the thickness for me creates a barrier. Meaning things stay slick for a good while. I don’t feel like I have to keep applying my lube.
This also makes the process for me actually a lot less painful. This, of course, may not be something everyone experiences. However, for me, I believe that because my skin is staying moisturized that it is able to hold its elasticity easier. Making for a much smoother entry. Because of The Butters with Cocoa Butter, I can enjoy anal play far more than before. It has opened a whole new avenue of sexual pleasure for me.
This lube is amazing for an all-natural lube. Yes, many lubes say they are all-natural but still do use synthetic preservatives that for some skin is harmful. So it is great to have one that does not.
I would like to see where they go next with their lubes. However! Recently there has been a lot of talk about Aloe Vera allergies and how it often gets used in lube. I have to wonder, is there a way to have a natural lube without it? Because I for one would love for as many people as can to have access to this amazing stuff.
Thank you The Butters Hygienics Co and Jerome Stuart Nicols for letting me review The Butters with Cocoa Butter in exchange for this review!
