The hyaluronic acid helps to maintain the structure of tissue, enabling the cells to retain water, and elastin helps to limit stretching of skin. Sweet almond oil is easily absorbed and contains vitamins E and B proteins, glucids, and mineral salts. Vitamin A provides a thin barrier that helps to guard against infections. The cream can be used for daily moisturizing and as a lubricant for comfortable intimacy.

Yes WB has no smell, no taste, and no stickiness, which makes it a natural for sexual pleasure and sensitivity. pH-matched to the vaginal environment, the water-based lubricant is made of pure ingredients, certified organic by the Soil Association. Yes WB contains no synthetic or natural ingredients that cause health issues or concerns; there are no parabens, glycerin, propylene glycol, silicone, or hormones, and no skin irritants like grapefruit seed extract, menthol, or petrochemicals. Available in a variety of sizes.
(Some of you have been long-term users of Yes products. They have reformulated their product so that this one releases water more rapidly, which instantly rehydrates and lubricates tissues to enable comfortable intercourse. If you've used Yes as a moisturizer, you'll want to investigate Yes VM.)
Choose Yes WB personal lubricant to counter vaginal dryness, especially if you prefer to use natural organic products, perhaps because of skin sensitivities or allergies.
We like the Yes emphasis on "purity, performance, and pleasure," and their statement that "Yes has the power to change the world from the inside." We think sexually healthy women have that power, too.
