VISTA, Calif., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Astroglide, maker of the one of the world's best performing personal lubricants, today announced the launch of its new Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel, a thicker personal lubricant formulated without common ingredients known to irritate sensitive skin.
The International Society of Dermatology reports that nearly 50% of the total American population*, over 132 million people, suffers from skin sensitivity, with more women suffering from this affliction than men. Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel addresses the needs of this large population of people who have either never tried a personal lubricant because of sensitivity concerns, or who have stopped using personal lubricants because of irritation.
Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel is free from alcohol, glycerin, fragrances, or parabens, which have been found to cause irritation among those with sensitivities. This formula also contains Aloe Vera and Chamomile flower extract. Plus, this ultra-gentle Sensitive Skin Gel Personal Lubricant has been Allergy Tested and Dermatologist Reviewed.
Lisa O'Carroll, CEO at BioFilm, Inc. (the makers of Astroglide) said, "Approximately 45% of personal lubricant sales are gel formulas. We wanted to provide our users a great gel option that is very gentle and made with natural ingredients."
Astroglide Sensitive Skin Gel comes in a three-ounce tube. Visit www.astroglide.com for more information and to find local retailers.
