Curious™ Intimate Massage & Pleasure is the only intimate skincare available that includes an array of potent medicinal plants that rejuvenate, nourish, and protect intimate tissues while increasing pleasure, in a formula that deeply contemplates the science of a woman’s physiology in tandem with respect for a woman’s sexual needs.
Designed to support the healthful function of a woman’s intimate biochemistry, our formulation acknowledges the crucial relationship between cellular health and a balanced microbiome. This is accomplished using exclusively natural oils and botanical extracts, and there is quite simply no silkier, lighter, more natural skincare available. We dispense with the troubling ingredients found in conventional products that cause harm or interfere with intimate ecology, while providing an entourage of plant-sourced oils and botanicals that work synergistically to provide cellular structural support and therapeutic phytonutrients.
Curious™ Intimate Massage & Pleasure promotes a balanced pH, which plays a vital role in overall vaginal health. When vaginal pH increases, odor-causing microorganisms and infections can flourish. Studies show that vaginal issues are more likely to occur when vaginal pH is unbalanced. Unfortunately, most mainstream lubricants, personal moisturizers, and sexual massage products are laden with cheap and toxic ingredients that not only fail to meet the needs of women, but are actively harmful.
Curious™ Intimate Massage & Pleasure is silken to the touch. It feels light and soft and smooth- like a woman. So, when massaging alone or with company, the easy slip and glide enhances the immediacy of sensations. The impulse is to think it won’t last- but it does. Unlike conventional lubricants, which can cause pH imbalance and infections, Intimate Massage & Pleasure contains nutrients that assist your body in achieving a naturally balanced pH, which is one of your body’s most useful tools for fighting infection and maintaining natural lubrication and tissue health. This is particularly important for women who are susceptible to urinary tract infections or bacteria vaginosis post romp. Semen alone can also cause an imbalance in vaginal pH and exposure increases the likelihood of infection, making this an excellent preventative wellness choice as a playtime enhancing product.
Intimate Massage & Pleasure boasts uncompromised therapeutic value and premium performance as a silky, unobtrusive, natural-feeling moisture, for intimate play or for intimate moisture. It’s edible- of course!- but without fragrance/ flavor to interfere or announce itself. The best product is one that allows you to forget it’s there.
All ingredients are GMO free; and free of irradiation, ethoxylation, sulphonation, and chemical extraction. We use certified organic ingredients when they exist; when not, we use certified therapeutic grade materials. Vegan. Gluten-free. Not tested on animals. 100% plant sourced. All ingredients are natural and naturally processed.
Coconut (Cocos nucifera) fruit oil extract, therapeutic grade
Coconut fruit extract is an exceptionally silky, non-greasy oil extract that improves barrier function without harmfully coating the vaginal epidermis. This is a multifunctional ingredient that is produced using steam extraction to eliminate the long chain triglycerides that cause the oil to crystallize and separate. It decreases water loss via the mucosal membranes, transforming dry, irritated and inflamed surfaces into soft, hydrated tissues. Studies indicate Coconut fruit extract is anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant.
Coconut fruit oil is similar to coconut MCT oil, containing a high concentration of medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and non-estrogenic phytosterols. MCTs are more efficiently metabolized than LCTs (long chain triglycerides) because they cross the double mitochondrial membrane rapidly and do not require carnitine (a compound needed for metabolism). This rapid metabolic conversion of MCT into cellular energy increases absorption of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids and serves to protect, maintain, and restore sensitive tissues.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) seed oil
Pomegranate oil supports your body’s ability to maintain pH naturally, by promoting vaginal cell turnover. It’s a spectacular ingredient for punani health. How curiously appropriate, that pomegranate seed should be the source of such a remarkable oil for intimate vitality. We do well to attend to the messages offered in our ancient stories, which tell us that this mythical fruit is beloved of Aphrodite, goddess of love, sensuality, beauty, and immortal youth.
Pomegranate oil contains 70 percent punicic acid, a valuable Omega 5 fatty acid that reduces inflammation and aids in cellular repair. Pomegranate seed oil is the only natural source of this highly beneficial fatty acid.
It’s high in antioxidants--- higher than red wine, and similar to that of green tea---and notably promotes collagen and elastin production. Our pomegranate oil is quite remarkable in that it is a potent keratinocyte proliferation stimulator specific to the epidermis. This means that pomegranate oil notably improves elasticity and increases cellular turnover. So, old skin sloughs off more quickly, increasing tissue integrity and providing a growth medium for the all-important friendly bacteria.
The fact that pomegranate oil assists the body in maintaining pH integrity is a very important feature of our formula, in that vaginal pH is the result of a diverse and balanced ecosystem in the vaginal vault. It’s a complex and elegant system, involving crucial cellular turnover that is supported with pomegranate oil, which leads to a desirable lactobacilli population, and lactic acid production as a metabolic by-product. The lactobacilli and the lactic acid it produces are the foundation of a healthy vagina.
Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) extract
Green Tea is exceptionally high in antioxidant polyphenols that scavenge free radicals that otherwise increase the risk of many cancers, including cervical cancer, and accelerates the aging processes. Green Tea extract plays a valued role in this formula, given that studies indicate its use in the treatment of cervical dysplasia when applied topically. Research supports the use of topical green tea for its antioxidant, chemoprotective and immunomodulatory action.
Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) oil
Jojoba oil is extracted from the seed of a desert shrub that grows in the American southwest and Mexico. Noted for its light feel and its similarity to human sebum, it has a history of traditional use in skincare as well as therapeutic applications. Research indicates that it significantly accelerates the wound closure of both keratinocytes and fibroblasts and stimulates collagen synthesis. Jojoba oil has also been found to combat inflammation while reducing scar formation.
Elderberry (Sambucus Canadensis) extract
In support of a balanced ecosystem, elderberry extract is specific solution against overabundant yeast (Candida albicans), and E. coli, which are pathogenic bacteria that live in the colon, responsible for the vast majority of urinary tract infections. We don't use a broad-spectrum antimicrobial - an abominably bad idea!- but offer an assist to the vaginal microbiome balancing process by addressing the common issue of excess of these two problem-causing microbes.
Of crucial function in this formula, the concentrated undecylenic acid in our extract helps to reduce the fungal and bacterial organisms that are problematic for women in terms of both general vaginal health and sexual health. Elderberry also helps against biofilms associated with Candida albicans (yeast.) Additional research also indicates its protective action against Herpes Simplex Virus.
Olive (Olea europaea) squalane, therapeutic grade
Squalene is one of the most common lipids produced by human skin cells and is a component of human sebum. In terms of sensorial attributes, squalane is as soft and silky and restorative as one may find. Historically, it was extracted from shark liver and highly prized first in Japan and Asia, and then in luxury skin care for the elite in Europe. It is lauded for both its sensual feel and its attributes as a wound healer and regenerative medicine. Fortunately, it is now recognized that squalane may be extracted from plant sources as well, and ours is derived from olive oil. In addition to its moisturizing properties and remarkable silkiness, squalane is also used in treating skin disorders such as seborrheia, dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis.
Damiana (Turnera diffusa) extract
Damiana is an herb that often used to combat depression accompanied by loss of libido. It is also a noted aphrodisiac and anti-anxiolytic. Useful for pelvic stagnation of blood, used for ovarian cysts, fibroids, and confused menses, Damiana was traditionally used in Mayan medicine in a topical application, to increase clitoral sensitivity, and as a treatment for anorgasmia in women. The herb also stimulates sexual behavior in sluggish/ impotent males. A common name for this plant is translated as Old Woman’s Broom, leaving one wondering of the myriad possibilities for the origin of this charming imagery.
Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica) extract
Gotu Kola is an herb specifically used in the treatment of tissue disorders that are hot, red, and inflamed. Gotu Kola is effective for mucous membrane support in general, and particularly for those who struggle with dry, atrophied tissue due to autoimmune conditions, which is common. Gotu Kola has a history of traditional use as a topical treatment for vulvodynia, a painful condition quietly suffered by many women. It also has antiviral properties against herpes virus and may be used topically for this purpose. It has traditional use in formulas increasing sexual capacity and desire. Research indicates that topical application of Gotu Kola also improves skin hydration and epidermal barrier function, and has anti-inflammatory and free radical scavenging properties.
Shiitake (Lentinula edodes) extract phospholipids
Densely concentrated with assorted oil-soluble vitamins and minerals, shiitake mushroom extract is an excellent source of nutrition to the skin. The zinc alone helps bolster our immune system. Additionally, research and traditional use both identify it as a potent immunomodulator with value against lesions and tumors.
Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) extract phospholipids
The German E Commission monographs approve the topical use of chamomile in the treatment of anogenital irritation, specifically hemorrhoids, vaginal membranes, and episiotomy (the surgical cut made at the opening of the vagina during childbirth). It is among the most respected botanicals used for dermal irritation, abrasions and wound repair.
Our Shiitake and Chamomile extracts are carried in non-nano, certified organic phospholipids. Phospholipids form the membrane that compose the outer layer of all cells in the human body. Encasing the botanical extracts in this way allows them to enter the cells more effectively and simultaneously nourish and protect the delicate vaginal tissues.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) sterols
This ingredient contributes additional sterols to those already present in the pomegranate oil, to optimize the barrier and hydration effect. It is deeply moisturizing. According to the British Pharmacopoeia, pomegranate sterol has a remarkable hydration potential, far exceeding other known sterols, and actually increased collagen production when applied topically.
Spray directly, or into palm of hand and apply with fingertips, as desired. One or two pumps is just right for intimate moisture. For sex, the same amount is enough to begin- and research shows that many women just need to feel some wetness to remind their bodies to begin self-lubricating. Sometimes a long session requires some added juice to keep going. Three or four pumps of the sprayer is good for playtime, alone or with a friend.
