Why should I use a personal lubricant?
Personal lubricants ensure your intimate area is well lubricated and prevent painful friction. As a result, you can have more intense sex using a personal lubricant and also explore more exciting techniques. This is because personal lubricants are extremely versatile. You can use them to enjoy sensual foreplay, a relaxing massage or to enhance pleasure during sex. Furthermore, personal lubricants are a must with anal sex because this area of the body does not produce any natural lubrication.
Can I use pjur personal lubricants while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes. We only use carefully selected, pure ingredients in our personal lubricants that meet extremely high quality standards. During this time, we particularly recommend using pjur med NATURAL glide with natural ingredients as well as pjur med PREMIUM glide and our pjur WOMAN Nude, which does not contain any preservatives.
Can I use pjur lubricants if I want to get pregnant?
pjur lubricants are absolutely neutral with regard to sperm activity. Our lubricants contain no spermicide substances and are not a contraceptive. The formulas are optimally aligned with the pH value of the woman’s genital area and thus do not affect the mobility or life expectancy of spermatozoa, nor does it have any influence on the natural vaginal fluid. pjur products stand out for their “neutral” behavior and optimal compatibility and have neither a positive or a negative influence on a desired pregnancy.
Are all pjur personal lubricants condom compatible?
All of our personal lubricants undergo a condom test. So you can rest assured that all pjur personal lubricants are also compatible with latex condoms.
What is the shelf life of pjur lubricants?
pjur lubricants generally have a shelf-life of three up to five years (depents on water or silicone based). An actual use by date is shown on every product package. This shows the recommended period by which the product in question should be used.
Can pjur silicone-based products also be used with sex toys?
After conducting long-term tests, well-known toy manufacturers have confirmed that our silicone-based personal lubricants are suitable for use with their products. We are not aware of any cases where problems have occurred. pjur only uses extremely high-grade silicones that are also used, for example, in the cosmetics industry for the production of hair care and skincare products. However, to be sure, you can test our personal lubricants beforehand on a small area of your sex toy. pjur water-based personal lubricants are, of course, perfect for use with sex toys.
Are there special products to delay premature ejaculation?
We have developed products specifically for men that can delay ejaculation and prolong pleasure. The active ingredients in our pjur superhero PERFORMANCE spray are combined to specifically target this problem. They are absorbed into the top layer of the skin and can prevent premature ejaculation. The spray does not contain lidocaine or benzocaine. Our pjur med PRO-LONG spray is for external application on the penis and can reduce oversensitivity. It contains the active ingredient tannic acid from oak bark. In combination with panthenol, it can soothe the skin.
Which products can I use for intimate hygiene?
When it comes to intimate hygiene, less is more. Many women who suffer repeatedly from vaginal discomfort and infections wash themselves with products that are too aggressive or simply use the wrong kind of products. As such, it's best to wash your intimate area just with water. If required or if you suffer from unpleasant itching, you can use intimate washing solutions that help combat itching and relubricate your intimate area.
What materials can pjur CULT products be used with?
Our pjur CULT products can be used with all materials made of rubber and latex.
Have all pjur lubricants been tested for skin compatibility?
Before they can impress users with long-lasting lubrication and other special properties, personal lubricants must be skin compatible. After all, they come into contact with skin and mucous membranes. Mucous membranes are particularly unforgiving if we don’t treat them properly. So it's crucial that we pay extra special attention to ingredients here. This is why all pjur lubricants and their ingredients are dermatologically tested to ensure they are completely skin compatible.
Are there any products for highly sensitive skin?
We recommend using our pjur PREMIUM glide if you have sensitive or highly sensitive skin. It is extremely gentle to skin thanks to the purity of its ingredients. Once applied, it creates a protective film that does not clog pores but leaves your skin feeling silky smooth, while providing extra long-lasting lubrication. Our pjur med PREMIUM glide is also the perfect product if you suffer from allergies or neurodermatitis. It has been confirmed as allergy friendly in multiple tests. Furthermore, a dermatological test conducted under clinical conditions on people suffering from neurodermatitis (eczema free) showed "very good" tolerance levels. Our five-star seal from dermatest further underscores this result.
Can personal lubricants help with vaginal dryness?
Regular use of a personal lubricant can help relieve the symptoms of vaginal dryness. A personal lubricant can help compensate for the lack of moisture in your intimate area. Our products in the pjur med range are particularly well suited for this. Comprising pure, extremely high-quality active ingredients, these products can provide valuable support here - which is why they are also recommended by gynaecologist to help combat vaginal dryness.
Why do I need a personal lubricant for anal sex?
The anal area of the body is not naturally lubricated. The use of a personal lubricant is therefore a must for pleasurable anal sex. This is the only way of compensating for the lack of natural lubrication in this area. Our anal products also contain certain additives such as jojoba and hyaluron to make anal sex even more enjoyable.
Is it safe to orally ingest pjur personal lubricants?
pjur personal lubricants are Made in Germany using carefully selected, pure ingredients. They do not contain any critical substances and are safe to orally ingest. Our products are subject to strict quality control measures. Our commitment here is backed by certifications, external tests and quality seals from independent organizations. Nevertheless, our personal lubricants should not be ingested in large amounts as this may have a laxative effect.
Can I use delay sprays if my partner is pregnant?
As we do not have any test results or field reports on this topic, we must unfortunately recommend that you do not use the delay sprays during pregnancy.
Is silicone harmful to my body?
No. We only use the highest quality, purest silicones that are not harmful to the human body. Silicone molecules are larger than skin pores. As a result, they remain on the surface of the skin and are not absorbed. They form a breathable protective film that ensures long-lasting lubrication. The body then breaks down the personal lubricant as part of the natural process to regenerate the vagina's mucous membranes.
What pjur products should I use if I frequently suffer from fungal infections?
Many women suffer from recurrent fungal infections. In these cases, water-based products are not necessarily the best option as the ingredients glycerin and glycol can be a food source for candida albicans (pathogen for fungal infections). This is why we recommend using silicone-based products that do not contain any preservatives in these instances, for example our pjur med PREMIUM glide. Its pure ingredients make it the ideal choice for even highly sensitive skin. The personal lubricant creates a protective film on the skin that won't block your pores, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth and delivering extra-long-lasting lubrication. It has also been proven to be allergy friendly in multiple tests. We also recommend our water-based products that are free from preservatives such as our pjur WOMAN Nude or pjur med SENSITIVE as these have been specially developed for sensitive skin and are guaranteed to be extremely skin compatible.
What products do you recommend for diabetics?
Women with diabetes have higher levels of sugar in their tissue and tissue fluid. This can promote the reproduction of bacteria and fungi, which, in turn, can result in infections. The glycerin and glycol in water-based products can be used as a food source by candida albicans (pathogen for fungal infections). As such, we recommend using our silicone-based, preservative-free personal lubricants to prevent any risk of infections. This includes our pjur med PREMIUM glide, pjur med SOFT glide, pjur LIGHT or our pjur ORIGINAL.
What pjur products should I use if I am allergic to preservatives (glycerin/phenoxyethanol)?
For users who are allergic or sensitive to preservatives, we recommend using our silicone-based personal lubricants, which do not contain any preservatives, to prevent any potential allergic reactions/irritations. For example, our pjur med PREMIUM glide or pjur med SOFT glide with jojoba. Alternatively, you can use our preservative-free, water-based personal lubricants such as pjur med SENSITIVE glide or pjur WOMAN Nude.
What products should I use if I suffer from vaginal dryness?
For women who suffer from vaginal dryness, we recommend using our silicone-based personal lubricant or our water-based products that do not contain any glycerin or glycol to prevent any possible irritation of the mucous membranes.
In line with state-of-the-art technology, the focus here is on methods for alleviating vaginal dryness that
- make intimate sexual activities more comfortable,
- complement the body's natural lubrication,
- reduce the symptoms of vaginal dryness.
Glycols and glycerin/glycerin are used as preservatives in water-based personal lubricants and can affect osmolarity.
To maintain appropriate osmolarity, the amount of glycols and glycerin is kept at a certain threshold.
Excessive amounts of glycerin and glycols are toxic for lactobacilli and promote herpes simplex infections as well as bacterial vaginosis.
In addition to this, glycerin/glycerin can be used a food source by candida albicans. (WHO 2012, Cagnacci, Gallo et al. 2019)
We can never fully eliminate the possibility of adverse reactions like this in individual cases with sensitive users. An existing irritation in the mucous membrane with small, invisible tears in the skin can result in slight sensations when the personal lubricant is applied.
Based on the information at our disposal, it can be assumed that a temporary, mild effect will occur, which is typical in the case of an allergy or oversensitivity to ingredients as a result of an existing inflammation or minor, undetected skin irritation.
Do any pjur products contain flavourings or colourings?
No. Due to our extremely high quality standards, all of our products are manufactured without colour additives and they are all neutral in taste.
Are there any products that are free from preservatives, glycerin and parabens?
We've developed a product specifically for health-conscious women that is free from all additives: pjur WOMAN Nude. It does not contain preservatives, glycerin or parabens and was developed specifically for women with delicate and sensitive skin. Our pjur med SENSITIVE glide is another product that does not contain preservatives, glycerin or parabens.
Why do some of our products contain additives such as ginkgo, ginseng, caffeine and menthol?
In addition to providing outstanding lubrication, some of our products contain special additives that deliver a tangible dual effect for that extra-special something. This is why we call these products dual-effect glides. The additives are natural or naturally derived ingredients such as ginkgo, ginseng, caffeine or menthol extracts.
What effect does ginkgo have?
Ginkgo has always represented growth, strength and power. It has an invigorating and stimulating effect in pjur superhero glide.
What effect does ginseng have?
Ginseng can enhance desire through its warming, invigorating effect. We use it specifically for female stimulation in our pjur myglide product.
Are lidocaine and benzocaine used in pjur products?
No, none of our lubricants or sprays contain lidocaine (an anesthetic). None of our products contain benzocaine.
Are there any products that do not contain preservatives?
All pjur silicone-based personal lubricants and the water-based personal lubricant pjur WOMAN Nude are free from preservatives. Our pjur med PREMIUM glide, pjur med SOFT glide and pjur med SENSITIVE glide from the pjur med range also do not contain preservatives. In addition, our pjur SPA ScenTouch Neutral Way massage lotion is free from preservatives.
What effect does jojoba have?
Our silicone-based products for anal intercourse contain high-grade jojoba extracts. The soothing, nurturing properties of jojoba can relax the anal muscle and leave the skin feeling much softer and more supple.
What effect does hyaluron have?
The natural ingredient hyaluron in our water-based anal products can bind large amounts of water. This allows it to form small cushions of water that significantly boost the lubricating effect of these products. This is particularly important in the anal area as the body does not produce any natural lubrication here.
Are pjur serums silicone-based?
Yes, pjur serums are silicone-based. However, the silicone in these products has a different function to the silicone in pjur personal lubricants. The film does initially have a lubricating effect. However, its main purpose is to protect the skin and reduce sensitivity. In contrast to silicone-based personal lubricants, the silicone in the serums is only used as a carrier for the film-forming agents. As such, we recommend using the serums in combination with pjur personal lubricants as these will provide long-lasting lubrication.
What effect does aloe vera have?
It promotes cell regeneration and is therefore recommended for treating wounds. It is also used as a moisturiser in cosmetic products.
What effect does panthenol have?
Panthenol supports the skin's elasticity and protects stressed, irritated skin. It accelerates cell renewal and also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
What does camomile do?
Camomile soothes and cares for sensitive skin in the intimate area. Personal lubricants with nurturing properties are particularly important in the anal area as the body does not produce any natural lubricant here and it is particularly easy for skin in this area to become stressed. The active agents in camomile have an anti-inflammatory effect and regenerate the cell structure of stressed tissue.
What is the difference between water-based and silicone-based products?
pjur water-based personal lubricants ensure your intimate area is well lubricated and also care for your skin. They are our classic personal lubricant formulas. They are absorbed into the top layers of skin and leave the skin feeling great while at the same time delivering outstanding lubrication without any stickiness. Water-based personal lubricants can also be used with all toys. pjur silicone-based personal lubricants contain the highest-grade silicones that provide extra long-lasting lubrication and a host of other benefits. Silicone molecules are larger than the pores in human skin. As such, they form a breathable protective film that makes the skin soft and smooth. What's more, our silicone-based personal lubricants do not contain preservatives, are highly skin compatible, allergy friendly and dermatologically tested.
What makes pjur superhero DELAY serum different to other delay products?
pjur superhero DELAY serum works without any anaesthetics. It reduces sensitivity in the penis without numbing! What makes this product so special is that it does not reduce sensation. It also takes effect in just a few seconds unlike competitor products that need 15 - 20 minutes. And because this product forms a protective film on the skin and is not absorbed, it is highly compatible with different skin types. The serum can easily be applied multiple times, enabling you to determine the level of intensity you want.
What's the difference between pjur superhero DELAY serum and pjur superheroPERFORMANCE spray?
The pjur superhero DELAY serum takes an entirely new approach to reducing sensitivity. It works by creating a neutral, invisible protective film over the penis that helps reduce sensitivity. In contrast, the pjur superhero PERFORMANCE spray contains special natural ingredients. Both products work without any numbing agents and take effect after just a few seconds. They provide a similar level of intensity and so it is entirely a matter of personal taste as to whether you choose the gel-like serum or the gently cooling spray.
What's the difference between pjur CULT Dressing Aid and pjur CULT ULTRA SHINE?
pjur CULT Dressing Aid is the perfect aid for all fans of rubber and latex clothing. It makes it easier for you to slip into outfits, even if you have lots of body hair. It also protects the material, helping it last longer and feel smoother. pjur CULT ULTRA SHINE is a spray that brings a shine to your rubber and latex clothing and helps preserve the material. It gives clothing a lustrous shine and also makes the material softer, helping it last longer.
What's the difference between pjur BACK DOOR and pjur analyse me! Relaxing Anal Glide?
Both products contain premium-grade jojoba extracts that help relax. The soothing, nurturing properties of jojoba can relax the anal muscle and leave the skin feeling much softer and more supple. The added silicone ensures extra long-lasting lubrication. The ingredients in pjur BACK DOOR Glide are more highly concentrated, however, to meet the needs of more intensive anal intercourse.
What's the difference between pjur BACK DOOR and analyse me! Comfort Water Anal Glide?
Both products contain hyaluron, which binds moisture and creates small cushions of water that enhance the lubricating effect. This provides added lubrication, which is particularly important in the anal area as this part of the body does not naturally produce any lubrication. The ingredients in pjur BACK DOOR Comfort Water Anal Glide, however, are more highly concentrated than in pjur analyse me! Comfort Water Anal Glide, making it ideal for intensive anal sex.
What's so special about pjur BACK DOOR Anal Comfort serum and pjur analyse me! Anal Comfort serum?
Both serums for the anal area work without any anaesthetics. They have been developed to reduce sensitivity during this particularly fun activity without limiting the pleasure you experience. What makes these products special is that they take effect after just 15 - 20 seconds and not 15 - 20 minutes like many competitor products. The serums are not absorbed by the skin. Instead, they form a protective film, which means they are particularly skin compatible and help protect the skin.
What's the difference between pjur BACK DOOR Anal Comfort serum and pjur analyse me! Anal Comfort serum?
The difference between the two anal serums lies in the concentration of their formulas. pjur BACK DOOR Anal Comfort serum is more highly concentrated and was specially developed for intensive anal sex. It is particularly popular among gay users. In contrast, pjur analyse me! Anal Comfort serum is also suitable for first-time users.
What's the difference between pjur BACK DOOR and pjur analyse me! Anal Comfort serum and pjur BACK DOOR and analyse me! Anal Comfort spray?
The anal serums reduce sensitivity by creating a neutral, invisible protective film on the skin. In contrast, the anal sprays contain special natural ingredients. Both products work without any numbing agents and take effect after just a few seconds. They provide a similar level of intensity and so it is entirely a matter of personal taste as to whether you choose the gel-like serum or the gently cooling spray.
What's the difference between pjur ORIGINAL and pjur WOMAN?
pjur WOMAN and pjur ORIGINAL are very similar as both products have the same ingredients. The only difference lies in their concentration. pjur WOMAN has been designed specifically for women with sensitive skin and leaves the skin feeling especially soft, which is particularly important for women.
What are the differences between the personal lubricants in the BACK DOOR range?
The pjur BACK DOOR personal lubricants are designed for intensive anal sex. pjur BACK DOOR Relaxing is the silicone-based anal personal lubricant in the range. It contains jojoba extract, which helps relax the anal muscle. High-grade silicon ensures extra-long-lasting lubrication. pjur BACK DOOR Moisturising is a water-based anal personal lubricant that harnesses the moisturising properties of hyaluron to ensure outstanding glideabilities. It is very efficient and suitable for use with anal toys. pjur BACK DOOR Regenerating is a water-based anal personal lubricant that can be used with anal toys. The ingredients panthenol and camomile regenerate and soothe the skin in the anal area.
What does "Panthenol+" stand for in BACK DOOR Regenerating?
The plus sign in BACK DOOR Regenerating (Super REGENERATING Panthenol+) refers to the camomile it contains, which works with the panthenol to soothe and nurture the anal area and skin structure.
What packaging sizes does pjur offer?
To ensure we provide the right amount of personal lubricant and massage lotion for every customer and every need. Take a look in our shop at the different sizes available for the product you want.
What quality controls are pjur products subject to?
The name pjur is a by-word for premium-quality products "Made in Germany". All products are made and bottled in Germany. Some pjur products have been awarded quality seals with the rating "very good" by independent consumer organisations. Product quality and safety are a top priority in all areas of the company – from choosing ingredients through production to the delivery of our products to our customers. This is why our customers trust us and it's what our partners rely on. To ensure this never changes, all of our products are subject to a rigorous quality and safety management system.
What's the best way to get rid of stains?
Unfortunately, our experience shows that silicone stains will not come out of textiles with a single wash. However, they can be removed after 3 - 4 washes using commercial washing detergent at the right temperature. If necessary, you can remove silicone stains more quickly using a silicone/oil stain remover from your chemist.
Where can I buy pjur products?
Our products are available online from platforms such as Amazon as well as from our online shop and in specialist erotic shops.
Why do pjur bottles have a screw cap and not a pump dispenser?
In our product development process, when we look at ways of ensuring hygiene and preventing our products from leaking, safety and quality are always our top priorities. Unfortunately, there is always a residual risk in this area with pump dispensers. This risk is currently too high for our standards. We do use a pump dispenser with our slightly thicker pjur Toy Lube and this has proven to be a good solution for this product. However, we have not been able to use this type of closure with our less viscous pjur products due to the consistency of their formulas.
Are pjur products delivered discreetly?
We ship your order in completely unmarked packaging.
What does vegan seal mean?
It demonstrates that products do not involve or contain animal-derived ingredients and have not involved animal testing.
Why do some pjur personal lubricants smell even though they do not contain any perfumes?
pjur does not add synthetic flavourings or perfumes to any of its personal lubricants. There is always a risk with these kinds of additives that they could trigger skin reactions or even allergic reactions. Our top priority when it comes to our ingredients and additives is to ensure they are compatible with users' bodies. However, some pure ingredients may have a slight inherent odour. This may be noticeable when you open the bottle but it dissipates when you use or apply the product.
