Sliquid manufactures one of the most diverse lines of lube (over 100 products!), including water-based lubes, silicone lube, hybrid lube, flavored lube, vegan lube, and more.

There’s no real secret to Sliquid—and that’s the point.

Can’t decide which Sliquid lube to try? Sliquid also makes sampler packs, so you can try multiple lubes for the price of one bottle.

The Sliquid Organics sampler contains 12 packets of four different Sliquid Organics lubricants.

The Ride Bodyworx sampler is a great way to try the whole line of these thicker, more substantial lubes.

What kind of Lube is Sliquid?

Sliquid doesn’t make just one type of lube. But if there’s something that all of their lubes have in common, it’s the cleanliness and safety of the ingredients.

Sliquid was founded on a simple idea—clean, natural ingredients are the only ones you should be putting on or inside your body.

In our interview with Sliquid, we learned that the CEO, Dean Elliott, founded the company “because he recognized a gap in the lubricants market for cleaner formulas that used fewer ingredients and strayed away from less desirable ones, such as glycerin and parabens.”

Some other lube is made with potentially harmful ingredients like parabens, glycerin, and chemicals. But not Sliquid.

When you buy a Sliquid lube, no matter if it’s flavored, warming, silicone-based, or water-based, you know that you’re getting a lube that was formulated for the most delicate parts of your body.

Sliquid varieties

What Types of Lube Does Sliquid Make?

Sliquid makes just about every type of lube you can think of. Here’s a quick breakdown of Sliquid’s line-up. 

👉 Water-based lube: Water-based lube is the most versatile of all lubes. You can use it for all types of sex, with sex toys, with condoms, etc. We love Sliquid H2O and Sliquid Organics Oceanics

👉 Silicone lube: Silicone lube is much slicker and longer-lasting than water-based lube, but it’s also a bit costlier and tougher to clean. Try Sliquid Silver or Ride Rocco Silicone

👉 Oil-based lube: Oil-based lube is super slick and water-resistant. It’s amazing for massage, and it’s very skin-friendly, but it’s not safe to use with latex condoms. Try Sliquid Soul, a moisturizer made from a base of organic coconut oil. 

👉 Hybrid lube: Hybrid lube is a blend of silicone and water-based formulas. It’s slicker than water-based lube and easier to clean than silicone. Try Sliquid Silk.

👉 Anal lube: Bring on the butt stuff. Anal lube is formulated to keep your back door moist and comfy. Sliquid Sassy is an extra-thick water-based anal lube. For a longer-lasting formula, use a silicone lube. 

👉 Organic lube: Organic lube is made with certified organic ingredients. The Sliquid Organics line is made with ultra-premium ingredients like aloe and seaweed extract. 

👉 Vegan lube: Vegan lube is 100% cruelty-free. All of Sliquid’s lubes are vegan! 

👉 Warming lube: A little extra heat can intensify the feeling of closeness with your partner and bring more blood to your most sensitive places. Try Sliquid Organics warming lube.

👉 Cooling lube: Bring a minty-fresh feeling and a cooling tingle to hot nights with a cooling lube like Sliquid Spark.

👉 Flavored lube: Add a little zest to your foreplay and oral adventures with flavored lube. Sliquid makes some of the tastiest concoctions, including flavors like piña colada and blackberry fig.

👉 Arousing lube: Stimulating lube contains ingredients that boost the feeling of arousal. Try Sliquid Organics O Gel for women or Ride Bodyworx Rise for men.

👉 Desensitizing spray (for men): Desensitizing spray reduces sensation so you can gain control over your O and go longer and stronger. Try Ride Bodyworx Rocks for men.

How Many Sliquid Products Are There?

When Sliquid began in 2002, it produced just two sex lubes.

Today, it produces over 100 products, including its flagship Sliquid brand, Ride Bodyworx, bath products, moisturizers, sampler packs, and more. You can find all of Sliquid’s best-selling lubes at Condomania.

What’s Special About Sliquid Lube?

How is Sliquid lube different from the lube you find on the shelf at the pharmacy? The Sliquid team is extremely picky about its ingredients.

In fact, the brand was founded around the idea of making the cleanest, most body-safe lube on the market.

In our interview, we learned that the brand produces “the cleanest and most natural personal glides, massage oils, and body products on the market.”

How do they do it?

Sliquid is dedicated to using natural ingredients in its lube products. This is different from other brands that use potentially harmful chemicals and sugar-based ingredients.

This is especially true for the Sliquid Organics line, which is made with 95% organic ingredients.

Sliquid also tries to use as few ingredients as possible, believing that simple formulas are better for the body and for performance.

You’ll never find harmful ingredients like glycerin, parabens, or petrochemicals in Sliquid products. Unfortunately, this is not true of many other lube brands.

Oh, and Sliquid lube also gets the job done when it comes to slicker, slipperier, and more comfortable sex. This is why it’s one of the most popular lube brands in the country.

If you’re looking for a sex lube, but you’re not interested in squinting at the ingredients label, you’re always safe going with Sliquid.

What’s the Best Sliquid Lube?

There isn’t one best Sliquid lube. Different products are suited for different activities.

However, the top Sliquid lube, according to the Sliquid team, is Sliquid H2O. This is the original Sliquid lube, and one of the highest-rated lubes on the market.

It’s a water-based lube, so you can use it for all types of sex, masturbation, toys, etc. And it’s slicker (and cleaner) than most of the water-based lubes we’ve tried.

If you’re looking for lube for a more specific sex act, try the following:

👉 For vaginal or anal sex: Sliquid Silver, an extra-slick silicone lube.

👉 For masturbation: Sliquid Silk, a less messy hybrid lube.

👉 For massage: Sliquid Soul, an oil-based moisturizer.

👉 For oral: Sliquid Pink Lemonade, a flavored lube.

Is Sliquid Lube Popular?

Yes, Sliquid lube is incredibly popular. It’s hard to find a “Best of” lube list on the internet that doesn’t include at least one Sliquid product (many contain more than one).

Sliquid has been featured as a top lube by Women’s Health Magazine, GQ, New York Magazine, Men’s Health, and countless others.

It has also appeared on the big and small screen.

It was featured in the Comedy Central Show Awkwafina is Nora from Queens and Netflix’s How to Build a Sex Room. And it’s playing a big role in the upcoming movie, Half-Baked 2.

More importantly, sexual health experts and medical professionals recommend Sliquid lubes for their body-safe formulas and natural ingredients.

Sliquid reviews

Are Sliquid Reviews Good?

Sliquid has racked up thousands of reviews over the years, and its products are still pushing 5 stars.

On Amazon, Sliquid H2O has a score of 4.4 stars from over 6000 reviewers. On Condomania, Sliquid lubes are consistently rated between 4.5 and 5 stars.

Let’s take a look at what a few real reviewers have to say about Sliquid:

“This is my go-to lube!! It's clean and slippery, with easy cleanup. I mainly stick to Sliquid.”

-B.P., on Sliquid H2O 

“Feels very natural, not too watery, but very lightweight. No strong smell, and doesn’t get sticky. Lasts a good amount of time—longer than other water-based lubes.”

-R.O., on Sliquid Organics Natural Gel 

“Sliquid products are excellent! Great personal lubrication that lasts a long time is water-based, and the light flavoring tastes great too!”

-R.N., on Sliquid Swirl Tangerine Peach 

Is Sliquid Lube Safe?

Yes, Sliquid lube products are safe. In fact, they are safer than many other lube brands because Sliquid never uses potentially harmful ingredients like parabens and glycerin.

If you have sensitive skin or are prone to UTIs or yeast infections, Sliquid lube is a safe choice.

However, it’s important to remember that certain types of lube, regardless of brand, are not safe to use for certain activities.

For example, it’s not safe to use silicone lube with silicone sex toys. And it’s not safe to use oil-based lube with latex condoms.

You can learn more about lube safety in Condomania’s Ultimate Guide to Sexual Lubricant.

Can You Use Sliquid Lube with Condoms?

Yes, Sliquid lube is safe to use with all types of condoms.

The only product you should not use with latex condoms is Sliquid Soul, an oil-based moisturizer. Oil-based lube is not safe to use with latex condoms, as it can cause the material to tear.

For a safe Sliquid lube to use with condoms, we recommend Sliquid Silk

Can You Use Sliquid Lube with Sex Toys?

You can use water-based Sliquid lubes with all sex toys. But you can’t use silicone or hybrid lubes with silicone sex toys.

Silicone lube degrades silicone toys, which may lead to bacterial growth on your toys and an infection in a place where you don’t want one.

Silicone and hybrid lube are safe to use with sex toys made from other materials, such as metal or glass.

If you’re looking for a Sliquid lube to use with sex toys, try Sliquid H2O

Who Makes Sliquid Lube?

Unlike other lube brands, there’s no faceless corporation behind the scenes at Sliquid. Sliquid was founded by lube enthusiast and businessman Dean Elliott in 2002.

Elliott’s wife, like many women, is sensitive to the ingredients in standard lube (especially glycerin). These ingredients were disrupting her natural pH balance and causing discomfort.

Elliott set out to develop a cleaner, safer lube.

The simple, pure formula he developed for Sliquid Naturals H2O, the company’s first product, soon became more popular than he ever imagined.

Today, it’s featured on many “Best of” lists, and it’s one of the best-selling lubes in the country.

Over 20 years later, Elliott is still the company’s CEO. Now, Sliquid employs a diverse team of lube professionals that produces over 100 natural and super-sexy products.

Sliquid lube is made in the USA.
