A very good quality intimate lubricant is essential so that you are not too confronted with repeated vaginal dryness. Whether for prevention, for comfort or as a one-off treatment of deeper intimate dryness and discomfort related to painful intercourse, you will need to choose a personal lubricant that is perfectly compatible with your vaginal intimacy. Yes, now is the time for you to ask yourself the right questions. Is your current intimate lubricant really in symbiosis with your vagina in what it claims to be? Take some of your precious time and take an interest in the osmolarity of your vaginal or anal intimate lubricant. 

Osmolarity is neither more nor less than a phenomenon of osmosis between the mucous membranes of the vaginal epithelium and your intimate lubricant which will constantly maintain a balance between the pressure of the water contained in your cells and your lubricant. We invite you to remain vigilant and to continue to inform yourself more in order to gather all the elements of comparison that will allow you to choose your ideal lubricant.

YESforLOV invites you in this article to find out more about the importance of knowing the osmotic concentration of your lubricant and to warmly come and meet the youngest of its intimate cosmetics: a natural intimate lubricating gel made from organic algae, iso-osmotic and so full of beautiful promises.



The natural lubrication of the vagina and vulva ensures the necessary humidification so that the mucous membrane retains all its flexibility and the comfort it deserves. In the excitement, the woman will naturally secrete through the glands and pores a liquid and clear fluid. Unfortunately, vaginal secretions largely depend on estrogen , which explains the appearance of vaginal dryness during important events in a woman's life: during menopause, postpartum, during pregnancy or during feeding with milk. In addition, certain antidepressants, cancer chemotherapy or tobacco and alcohol can also be involved in this phenomenon of vaginal dryness. If you want to better understand the process of lubrication and the mechanisms to preserve it, it's here in this article .

The use of an intimate lubricant is therefore necessary and a practical solution to fully allow you more comfortable sexual relations and relieve your intimate discomfort (burning, itching, irritation) likely to settle over time and spoil you. the joy of the pleasures of the flesh and of sex. Whatever the motivation behind your decision to purchase an intimate gel, the high-quality intimate lubricant you have chosen will not only bring you a lot of relief and comfort , but it will also help you to re-establish in your couple the sexual atmosphere that you love so much and which has evaporated, the trust in yourself and in the other that you have lost, the complicity and reciprocity of desires, however legendary between you two and which had somewhat diminished. Philosophically and "vaginally" speaking, but without opening the doors of a well-being market that is too disparate now, the lubricating gel has been imagined and skilfully formulated to bring you more pleasure and comfort whether in solo or during your very intimate and privileged relationship with your partner. Your fears and your fears of having pain, your very real pains that should not be concealed in overly aggressive relationships will lessen.



Many intimate lubricants and gels are sold each year on the shelves of sex shops and supermarkets, but few if any of them take into account a fundamental fact that has a major impact on the cellular health of the vaginal mucosa: c is called osmolarity .

Let's not play sorcerer's apprentices or physics-chemistry teachers to try to understand this somewhat abstract notion of osmolarity. Osmolarity is easier than it looks, don't worry. To clarify the story and without having to debate, let us all remember for the record that the osmolarity of any product is only an order of magnitude . That being said, and as far as we are concerned here, it is everyone's health that is at stake. We therefore leave the corridors of chemistry without regret to go to the essential, namely: what is the osmolarity of the intimate lubricant?

Osmolarity can be defined as the measure of solute concentration expressed in number of particles. Osmolarity makes it possible to measure the osmotic pressure of an aqueous solution and thus to determine the diffusion of the product through a membrane such as the vaginal epithelium.

Osmotic concentration ? This is osmolarity for scientists. And for us who want to take care of your vagina, it clearly indicates the variation in osmotic pressure likely to occur in the cells of the body and more particularly in the strategic areas of the vagina and vulva. Any preparation containing water therefore contains a quantity of dissolved particles, this quantity is measured in mOsm/Kg and literally influences the osmosis between the cell and its external environment.

If the osmolarity of an intimate hygiene product is significantly higher than that of the body cell , the body cell will dilute the solution and end up saturated with water until it explodes and dies. If, on the contrary, the osmolarity of the intimate gel is clearly lower than that of the mucous membrane , the opposite occurs, the interior of the cell is literally emptied of its substance, this is called dehydration . intracellular .
In blood plasma , the physiological value is between 280 and 300 mOsm/l . For rectal and vaginal tissues , they are 270/290 mOsm . Note that the rectal epithelium is much thinner and more fragile than the vaginal tissue. The osmotic nature of your anal lubricant is therefore more important if you want to avoid tissue damage.



Vegan, organic, edible, warming, moisturizing or refreshing… Water-based, cosmetic active ingredients and fragrance-free. In terms of intimate products, cosmetics for intimacy and sex are complete without giving the assurance of top quality and transparency.

Stop on the image of lubricants that dare to present themselves with an indecent osmolarity oscillating between 3 and 8,000 mOsm/kg. It's no ! Nothing to negotiate beyond 1200 mOsm/kg . So, without any trial of intent, it's an automatic stop to unidentified lubricants in their true chemical base formulation and which inconsiderately pollute the well-being market.
Place on the other hand but with a lot of tweezers with hyper-osmotic, hypo-osmotic lubricants based on glycerin. To consume with eyes closed, iso-osmotic lubricants , the most promising of them. Never lose sight, however, that the osmolarity of your intimate lubricant is too important a factor to neglect and it must be taken into account for your vaginal health: in this respect, never forget that the cells of the vaginal mucosa and vulvar make every effort to maintain this fragile balance between the pressure of the water contained internally and the surrounding environment.

Choosing a hyper-osmotic intimate lubricant means admitting to seeing the cells of your vaginal membrane cruelly dry out . The result is dehydration of the mucous membrane and a wide open door to the most unhealthy bacterial infections. Conversely, and this is fortunate for your well-being, the hypo-osmotic lubricant appears to be the natural leader and the faithful and so solid ally in the duration of your well-being. be. Your body's cells will never stop trying to capture this holy water nicely hidden in your lubricant to better rehydrate the most exposed tissues. A red line not to be crossed, however, and no slippage allowed: the extreme hypo-osmotic choice is to be ruled out for its dangerousness due to the possible bursting of the cells involved in this process. More specific attention to be paid concerning as a whole hypo-osmolar and hyper-osmolar lubricants likely to increase the risk of transmission of HIV and STIs. Wouldn't the best of intimate lubricants ultimately be this new generation iso-osmotic lubricant that dares to gently tickle your vagina with an osmotic pressure perfectly compatible with your vaginal mucosa? As well say it out loud, having a lubricant that has the same osmolarity as the cells of the body is still the best .

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends to manufacturers of intimate lubricants that an osmolarity of between 32 mOsm/kg and 380 mOsm/kg is too simple. This is very disappointing because beyond this minimum threshold, the risks of damaging the vaginal epithelium are very real. It's up to you to make the right choices of lubricants and stay for your well-being and your health. One study among others but perfectly targeted from the physico-chemical world (their authors are Edwards and N.Panay) point a reproachful finger at this incredibly negative degree of lubricants conveying without hesitation an osmolarity greater than 5,000 mOsm/ kg. Forget all those cheap lubricants that silently impose a non-compliant osmolarity rate, negative on a daily basis, worrying and dangerous in the long term for your health.

YESforLOV intimate lubricants: A guarantee that your mucous membranes are preserved, protected and well hydrated

Who else but YESforLOV could develop the first iso-osmotic intimate lubricant ? Formulated with organic seaweed, this glycerin-free intimate lubricant has been specifically developed to fully harmonize with your vaginal or rectal epithelium . With an osmolarity of 160 mOsm/kg and this is proven by a very serious clinical study, this new intimate lubricant made in France is suitable for all sexualities to offer you healthy and natural lubrication and preserve the health of your intimacy. .

In the YESforLOV range of intimate lubricants , you can also find lubricants based on water and vegetable glycerin. Vegetable glycerin and glycols are generally very well tolerated by the mucosa. If the lubricants you use tend to irritate and overheat you, you may be among those allergic to this active ingredient. Glycols in general have the unfortunate tendency to dehydrate and irritate the mucous membranes at concentrations above 20% or to nourish candidas and de facto trigger mycotic episodes. Glycerin and all its derivatives (propanediol, etc.) also seem to potentially damage the cells of the mucosa through their negative impact on the osmolarity of the intimate lubricant.

Don't worry about the water and glycerin-based lubricants in the YESforLOV range. All our products are automatically subjected to a rigorous clinical study responsible for evaluating the ability of the intimate lubricant to induce a cytotoxic effect on a reconstituted human vaginal mucosa, to evaluate the cell death rate and to determine the irritability of the product. In the same way, the effectiveness of the antimicrobial activity and the evaluation of the risks of mycoses are evaluated as well as the relevance of each claim made on our products, by constant bio-metrological measurements and by clinical tests. All our intimate lubricants are gynecologically tested and first go through a rigorous clinical study which must ultimately identify the degree of non-toxicity of the formula. It's clean and flawless at YESforLOV!

The extremely thorough analyzes which have in their sights the punctual evaluation of the cell death rate are a guarantee of quality that YESforLOV claims with a certain pride. Microbial activity is harmful to you, and on the other side of the mirror of life, so is your partner. Offering you the best for your privacy is our motto at YESforLOV.

So be perfectly reassured, dear readers, about the quality and total transparency of YESforLOV lubricants! We just regret    that there is so much casualness and lack of professionalism in this well-being market which only asks to grow healthily and to fully satisfy you!
