Recent research studies have shown that over 43% of women have suffered from some level of sexual dysfunction at least once in their lives. Female sexual dysfunction is an elusive issue, encompassing everything from loss of arousal response, to pain during sex. For many women, sexual dysfunction is a challenging topic to discuss, leaving many to feel isolated without hope of resolution. This problem is further exacerbated by the lack of high quality, healthy products that help to improve physical intimacy and arousal response.
Common Issues of Female Sexual Dysfunction and Menopause
Vaginal Dryness: Ranks as one of the top ten problems afflicting women with sexual dysfunction as reported by over 40% of women who have pain with sex. Certain activities including menopause, childbearing & nursing, certain medications, even high stress levels can often be the cause of vaginal dryness and its associated pain in sex. The most common cause of vaginal dryness is declining estrogen production, which leadsto thinning and drying of the vaginal wall. Other factors include reduced muscle tone and the longer time needed for sexual arousal.
Lack of Arousal Response: Dealing effectively with the physical pain associated with sex is not just a mental issue. The production of natural lubrication serves as an important emotional and mental cue for sexual arousal. When this lubrication function is compromised, the primary internal messaging system for our libido is lost.
Pain During Physical Intimacy: Often caused by irritation of the mucous tissues from lack of sufficient lubrication or the use of synthetic lubrication containing petrochemicals and parabens which further irritate these sensitive tissues. A lack of vaginal lubrication can make intercourse painful. Women who suffer from vaginal dryness often dread intercourse and avoid sex as a result. It is no wonder many women suffering vaginal dryness experience a drop-off in libido.
The Good Clean Love Solution
All Natural and Organic Lubricants: Our lubricants mimic the natural mucous produced within the body. Without the use of petrochemicals and parabens, they provide long lasting lubrication without additional irritation to the mucous tissues. As a member of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics � a branch of the Breast Cancer Fund, all of our love products are petrochemical and parabens free – which have been identified as potentially carcinogenic and identified in breast cancer tissues.
Creating a Sensuous Bridge: Our natural love oils respond to the body chemistry of each individual and are blended with therapeutic grade essential oil formulas that activates and strengthens the neural-biological pathways to the limbic system of the brain, where the arousal mechanism is situated, creating a ‘scent bridge’ between partners.
Activating the Arousal Response: By stimulating the arousal mechanism through scent and providing a natural substitute to a women’s own lubrication, pain during sex becomes a distant memory. The mind-body connection functions in both directions and the body can teach the mind.
Sustainable Love: Good Clean Love promotes sustainable love for couples by providing both organic and healthy products and educational tools for couples to work through the emotional and physical issues that keep them from the relationship that they long for.
Doctors and relationship counselors agree a healthy sex life is a vital part of overall physical and emotional well being. Medical Studies support the fact that an active sex life leads to a longer and happier life: Benefits include stronger immune response, better heart health, and reduction of chronic pain and lower incidence of depression. Sexually active people experience less fear and anxiety and have a greater sense of well-being.

-Michelle Sugg,AASECTCertified sex therapist
‘I had been to my OB-GYN repeatedly and talked with my primary care physician. Their basic message was, “Its menopause; deal with it.” I tried acupuncture and even went to a well-known holistic care practitioner. I was given over-the-counter creams, prescriptions creams, progesterone, testosterone and birth control pills. Everything either made me itch or did nothing positive for me. Finally, someone who really knew women’s health (you) came into my life and introduced me to all natural products that smell wonderful and are pleasant to use–even fun. Your lubricants are notsticky and don’t make me itchor burn like everything else I tried. Best of all, intercourse doesn’t hurt any more. Thank you so much.’

The Importance of Ingredients

Our organic lubricants are the cleanest, truly natural, water-based personal lubricants on the market. All of our lubricants are free of propylene glycol, parabens, synthetic fragrance or other petrochemicals!
Harmful Chemicals Found in Most Personal Lubricants
The vast majority of personal lubricant and other topical sexual enhancement products are made with chemicals originally invented for industrial uses, not for the body. Many people have adverse reactions to these toxic chemicals, and don’t understand why. We believe education of our customers is essential. The following list includes the top 5 ingredients, sourced through MSDS (material safety data sheets) on the web; we encourage you to do more research.
Propylene Glycol: Used as humectants. Found in automatic and hydraulic brake fluid. Used to make industrial anti-freeze and de-icing solution for cars, airplanes, and boats. Used as a solvent in paint and plastic industries. Also used to make polyester compounds. May be harmful by ingestion, inhalation, or through skin contact. Irritating to the eyes and skin.
Methylparabens and Propylparabens: Used as preservatives. Parabens are currently under scrutiny as they have been identified as estrogenic and disruptive of normal hormone functions; many studies are linking them with breast cancer tumors.
Polyethylene Glycol/PEG: Used as a thickener. Strips the skin’s natural moisture. An eye irritant, possible carcinogen and can produce severe acidosis, central nervous system damage and congestion. It is recommended to avoid all unnecessary exposure to the chemical substance and ensure prompt removal from skin, eyes and clothing.
Phenoxyethanol: Used as a preservative. Harmful if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. May cause reproductive defects. Severe eye and skin irritant.
Polyscorbate 60/Carboxymethylcellulose: Used as a thickener. The first of these compounds has been shown to cause cancer in animals. Inhalation of these products could cause chemical pneumonia. They have been shown to cause antibody reactions.
Creating a Sensuous Bridge
The scent of desire, it turns out has more to do with our biological imperative than we might have ever imagined. Our sense of smell and what attracts or repels us, is blueprinted in the immunological gene structure called the MHC. Every individual’s own genetic scent makeup is as unique as their fingerprint. MHC compatibility is a predictor of not only bearing healthy offspring, but relationship longevity. Even more remarkable than the biological compatibility of scent between partners is the new recognition that our ability to smell is completely intertwined with our ability to feel. ‘Our sense of smell and our emotional experience are fundamentally interconnected, bi-directionally communicative and functionally the same.’
Waking up the Arousal Response with Good Clean Love Oils
Love Oils are aphrodisiac blends of therapeutic grade essential oils in a base of apricot kernel and organic jojoba oil. Unlike fragrance oils, essential oils register in the limbic part of the brain, where sexuality, memory, and emotion are stored.
As the Love Oils are inhaled and the layers of scent registered in the brain, the brain chemistry is actually changing, so that both partners are sharing the same experience. The scents are layered from top to bottom, it may take ten minutes for the brain to register all the scents in any given blend.
Good Clean Love Oils respond to each individual’s personal chemistry and pheromones, so the scents are distinct and change according to where they are used on the body. This creates a personal scent bridge between partners that helps to revive the arousal response.
Great alternative to taking supplements daily, in addition to enhancing every kiss, they awaken the body’s own sensual drive.
The essentials are diluted to 1%, so they are safe to use anywhere on the body�they’re great for kissing, sensuous massage, oral pleasure, or internal lubrication (though oils are not latex condom compatible, which is printed on the bottle, they can be used with polyurethane and sheepskin condoms).
With three distinct blends, our love oils are specifically blending to not only recreate the scent path to arousal, but also act as an emotionally healing force within the relationship.
Origins Love Oil – The first note of scent most people recognize is a spicy layer on top, which is black pepper (this oil is naturally warming). The middle note is a woody, deep smoky scent, which is sandalwood and clary sage. These are both ancient aphrodisiacs. The bottom note is a sweet flower ylang ylang, which may take a moment for them to recognize.
Indian Spice Love Oil � The first note of this scent that is most easily recognizable is cinnamon bark which is sweet and warming, the middle notes are made up of Frankincense and Clary Sage, which are earthy and woody, the base note is cardamom and clove. Cardamom was once more valuable than gold for its aphrodisiac qualities.
Caribbean Rose Love Oil: The top note of this oil is three different forms of rose which opens the heart. The bottom note is a grounding mossy earthy scent which is vetiver, an ancient Caribbean aphrodisiac. The middle note is a Frankincense, which has meditative and heart opening qualities.
All Good Clean Love Oils are made with a vitamin E antioxidant which keeps products fresh at least two years.
