CAN I USE PRIVATE WITH A CONDOM?
PRIVATE IS COMPOSED OF LIQUID COCONUT OIL ALSO KNOWN AS MCT OIL. AS WITH ALL OILS, LATEX CONDOMS/SEX TOYS ARE NON-COMPATIBLE AND CONTACT CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF BREAKING DOWN THE LATEX. IF USING A CONDOM IN CONJUNCTION WITH PRIVATE, WE RECOMMEND CHOOSING A NON-LATEX CONDOM SUCH AS A POLYURETHANE OR NITRILE CONDOM.

WHAT IS LIQUID COCONUT OIL?
LIQUID COCONUT OIL IS MADE FROM ORGANIC COCONUT OIL THAT HAS BEEN PROCESSED TO REMOVE THE SATURATED FATS (INCLUDING LAURIC ACID) THAT ORDINARILY CAUSE COCONUT OIL TO STAY SOLID AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. THIS LEAVES THE OTHER TYPES OF FATTY ACIDS PRESENT IN COCONUT OIL INCLUDING OLEIC, LINOLEIC, CAPRIC AND CAPRYLIC ACIDS. LIQUID COCONUT OIL, OR MCT (MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDE) OIL, AND HAS BEEN USED IN COSMETICS AND DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS.

COCONUT OIL IS KNOWN TO HAVE ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES WHEN USED TOPICALLY AND IS ALSO NATURALLY SLIGHTLY ACIDIC WITH A PH OF 5-6. A HEALTHY VAGINAL PH IS ALSO SLIGHTLY ACIDIC, BETWEEN 3.8 AND 4.5. IT IS ALL NATURAL, NON-GREASY, NON-TACKY, ANTI-BACTERIAL AND ANTI-FUNGAL.
