FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Why opt for a water-based lubricant? (click for more info)
There are various types of lubricants available on the market, ranging from silicone-based lubricants to oil-based lubricants. Not all lubricants are equally suitable. Oil-based lubricants, for instance, have a negative impact on the rubber condoms are made from which means that condoms tear more easily. Silicone-based lubricants, on the other hand, do not dissolve naturally, have a less natural feel to them and are in some cases not indicated for use with condoms. For that reason, a water-based lubricant, such as Lubrilan, is highly indicated.

Can I also use products other than Lubrilan as a lubricant? (click for more info)
We strongly advise against the use of products such as baby oil, Vaseline, massage oil, moisturizers, sun-tan lotion, butter or even yoghurt and ice cream as these may cause irritation and do not have any qualitative lubricating properties. More often than not, they can affect the quality of the condom, causing it to tear.
