Helix Syn and Coconut Oil…safe?

Ive read oil based lubes are not good for silicone or latex, but Ive also read that coconut oil is not a mineral/petroleum based oil and is therefore typically not an issue for silicone based oys.

Does anyone have any experience using coconut oil with the silicone line of aneros products? Did you notice any damage or changes to the silicone coating?

  1. Yes, I used coconut oil dozens of times with my Helix Syn, it’s still fine. IMO coconut oil is the best damn lube – easy slide, and fantastic feel. The one to really worry about with the Syn is the silicone lubes, as you noted.

  2. I have used it for a while, but I haven’t seen any big advancements in general coconut oil or not. I think it’s probably cheaper than lube, haven’t done the math and I can just pick it up casually at the supermarket instead of ordering online. It sure works as a lube though, be aware that your vicinity is going to smell like coconut oil for an hour or two.

  3. Thanks just wanted to double check. Coconut oil is just amazing stuff all around.
