Wet Platinum Silicone Based Lubricant

The Bottom Line

Wet Platinum is a high quality, condom compatible silicone lubricant. It’s great for long play as you don’t need to keep applying more lubricant, and can be used for sex in the shower or other water as it doesn’t break down in water. The main drawbacks to Platinum as with other silicone lubricants is that it has a bitter taste, and you need soap and water to get it off.

Cons

  • Distinctly bad “chemically” taste.
  • Wet Platinum doesn’t come off the skin with water, requires soap to remove completely.

Guide Review - Wet Platinum Silicone Based Lubricant

Wet Platinum is a good premium silicone based lubricant. It has a very “lush” feeling to it. While the consistency is very thin it feels smooth and slick, not watery at all. When it is applied it almost feels like it is coating the skin, and it makes everything glide. This feeling may not be for everyone, and if you are used to a water based lubricant you might not like it at first (or you might not like it at all).

Platinum is glycerin-free and paraben-free, making it a safer choice for those prone to yeast infections and reactions to chemical preservatives.

Never use Wet Platinum or any silicone based lubricant with silicone sex toys as they will destroy them. Some people who prefer the feel of water based lubricant but like the long lasting quality of silicone lubricants mix a little Wet Platinum in with their water based lube. This works well, but it means you can’t use that mixture with your silicone sex toys.

Wet Platinum is good for a variety of other uses:

  • Great for an oil free body massage
  • It can be used to shine latex and rubber clothing
  • It can be used as a skin moisturizer

Ingredient List: Dimethicone, Hexamethyl Disiloxane, Docosamethyl decasiloxane, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate)
