This is not a straightforward question to answer as there are dozens of different lubricants on the consumer market.
Not all lubricants are created equal. Personal lubricants are highly regulated requiring certifications and registration with the FDA and similar governmental regulators in other countries. All of überlube's locations are FDA registered and the products are 510(k) approved. It is important to check that any lube has this registration before purchasing.
Überlube is also manufactured by Überlube allowing for the careful selection and oversight of the ingredients and manufacturing processes. Many lubricant brands outsource their manufacturing and bottling processes to factories they do not own or manage - not überlube!
It is our mission to have superior performance and be transparent in all that we do (like our clear bottle!). We don't market with gimmicks. Our product both feels and looks good and we continue to focus on reducing the stigma tied to lubricants and promoting sexual wellness.
This device is a personal lubricant, for penile and/or vaginal application. It is intended to moisturize and lubricate, to enhance the ease and comfort of intimate sexual activity and supplement the body’s natural lubrication. This product is compatible with natural rubber latex and polyisoprene condoms. This product is not compatible with polyurethane condoms.
Überlube is silicone with a trace of vitamin E to improve the finish and leave a smooth sensation.
- Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E)
Lubricants can be made of several different ingredients. Typical formulas include water, silicone or oil-based ingredients.
Überlube is a premium silicone lubricant. Silicone lubes differ from water-based versions in their feel, water resistance, and longevity of use. Silicone lubes do not contain water, greatly reducing the opportunity for bacteria to grow and preventing the need for chemical preservatives.
Überlube has only 4 ingredients, no preservatives and has been developed and tested for an optimal smooth, silky texture. It lasts longer on the skin surface without drying out or getting sticky. With silicone's natural water resistance, überlube is also well suited for water play.

We package überlube in a high-quality, sealed glass bottle. Glass is inert and impermeable and we use only borosilicate grade glass (also known as Pyrex), which tends to be more durable. This type of glass is commonly used in pharmaceuticals to store liquids for long periods of time.
The crimped top ensures überlube is biostatic, meaning once we bottle überlube, it stays the same throughout the life of the product - nothing can contaminate or be added thus guaranteeing you a consistently excellent experience down to the last drop.
Lastly, we believe and many of our customers agree that the glass bottle brings beauty to the product which you are not ashamed to keep on your nightstand!
All überlube ingredients are free of gluten, glycerin, alcohol, parabens, scents and flavors.
Überlube is designed to be directly dispensed so you don't have to worry about fumbling (or losing) a cap when timing is important. Each bottle is crimped at the neck to preserve the biostatic nature of überlube preventing anything from getting inside.
If you are looking for ultimate durability, our Good-To-Go travelers come with a protective case and a cap since they are meant for mobility and everyday use.
Überlube is compatible with natural rubber latex and polyisoprene condoms. Überlube is not compatible with polyurethane condoms. These statements have been verified by a third party lab for FDA registration.
Überlube's intended use is meant to enhance the ease and comfort of intimate sexual activity and supplement the body’s natural lubrication. We cannot recommend ingesting large quantities of any lubricant as they have not been tested specifically for ingestion. However, if your lube contains harmless ingredients, our position is that it can be used for oral sex. It is important that you use a reputable, high-quality lubricant and understand each ingredient to make sure it is safe for you (it's easy with überlube's simple ingredient list). If you have questions, consult your health care provider.
Osmolality and pH are generally more of a topic related with water-based lubricants. Überlube is anhydrous, meaning without water, so it doesn't have pH or osmolality.
While überlube has been tested for its safety and biocompatibility, it has not been tested for impact on fertility. Überlube does not contain any spermicides and makes no claim to improve the likelihood of pregnancy. Please consult with your healthcare provider before using and have a discussion about your particular situation.
While some women report adequate arousal and lubrication during pregnancy and breast-feeding, some women do not. Hormonal changes at these times may cause vaginal dryness.
Before, during and after a pregnancy it is even more important for many women to know which products they can use safely.
Überlube uses inert ingredients that meet the highest quality standards. In addition, our formula has been tested for biocompatibility and is a registered medical device. It may be a good lubricant choice during these times. We would always advise you to consult your healthcare professional if you have any concerns.
We do not recommend the use of any silicone lubricant with silicone toys unless the toy manufacturer specifically states their toy is compatible. Although you may hear that it works from others - its not their toy at risk. Compatibility depends on the type of silicone used to make the toy and almost always demands immediate washing after use. If you are uncertain, we highly recommend you test überlube on a small area of your silicone toy and look for any differences. Often times if not compatible, the toy may swell or get sticky in the test area.
If you want a stress-free decision, look at the toy manufacturer, Love-Not-War. They have developed a proprietary silicone called NeoSilcone that has been independently tested for safe use with überlube.
Of course, überlube may be safely used with any plastic, glass, ceramic or stainless steel toys but our advice is to do your homework with silicone toys.
Überlube has been shown in a clinical study to be non-sensitizing to skin.
Überlube is silicone-based with a small amount of Vitamin E. Silicone allergies are quite rare and the type of Vitamin E used (non-seed oil derived) in the formula is specifically selected to avert any irritation or allergies.
Überlube prides itself on simple ingredients with superior performance without preservatives or added ingredients like scents, flavors, or spermicides, which may cause irritation.
This will vary depending on preference and type of play. Each person should experiment and figure out the amount that’s right for them - have fun with it! We recommend starting with a minimal amount - a little goes a long way!
Once you learn your amount, our signature metered pump helps you repeatedly dispense your preferred amount every time!
Überlube has an expiration date of 3 years from the production date. This date is conveniently engraved on the bottom of your bottle or Good-to-Go insert.
The specific lot number for traceability is also engraved in this location as well.
When your bottle of überlube is low and you want those last few silky drops, we recommend the following technique:
1) Position the pump nozzle to be aligned with the bottom of the dip tube
2) Tilt the bottle slightly so the dip tube is in the remaining liquid.
3) Now pump! Voila! You'll get überlube instead of air.
When you buy a new bottle of überlube you'll notice that the dip tube is already aligned with the pump nozzle. It sometimes rotates when used and can be rotated back into the aligned position when needed.
We also have this handy tutorial on YouTube to help illustrate the technique.
