Your Questions

Application

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?

Because we use extremely pure ingredients, pjur personal lubricants generally have a shelf-life of five years. An actual best before date is shown on every product package. This shows the recommended period by which the product in question should be used. Once the product has been opened, it can be used for a further six months, unless the best before date expires at an earlier point in time.

Which products are best for massages?

Our pjur SPA products are the best option for massages. The five pjur SPA massage lotions are real innovations – they feel like massage oils but do not contain oil, silicone, fat or water. This means that they do not leave a greasy film on your skin after a sensuous massage. They can be wiped off easily, quickly and - most importantly - without leaving behind any residue, leaving your skin feeling dry yet also soft and enriched. What's more, pjur SPA ScenTouch products are breathable as they do not clog pores. Their subtle, pleasant fragrances make them the perfect choice for your next massage. Our personal lubricants are also great for massages thanks to their outstanding lubricating properties.

Which personal lubricants can I use for having sex in water?

Silicone-based personal lubricants are the best choice for having sex in water. They provide extremely long-lasting lubrication even in water.

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 products 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 products and ingredients developed and used by pjur are dermatologically tested to ensure they are completely skin compatible.

What pjur products would you recommend to someone who frequently suffers from fungal infections?

Many women suffer repeatedly from fungal infections. Water-based products are not always the best solution here as the ingredient glycerin can promote the growth of these bacteria. In this case, it makes more sense to use silicone-based products that do not contain glycerin. We recommend our pjur med PREMIUM glide. Its pure ingredients make it the ideal choice, even for highly sensitive skin. The personal lubricant forms a protective film on the skin. It does not clog pores and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth while providing extra long-lasting lubrication. Furthermore, numerous tests have confirmed that this product is allergy friendly.

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.


Ingredients

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 caffeine have?

Just like in coffee, caffeine also has a stimulating, exciting and invigorating effect in our pjur espresso personal lubricant. As such, caffeine can enhance your pleasure.

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.

What effect does menthol have?

Menthol has a light, cooling effect, and provides a tingling, cool kick in our pjur COOL lubricant.

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 has an anti-inflammatory and regenerative effect and promotes the development of new skin cells.


Product differentiation

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 hear. 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 take an entirely new approach to reducing sensitivity. They work by creating a neutral, invisible protective film on the skin that helps reduce sensitivity. 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.


Others

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, we offer pjur products in a range of sizes from 1.5 ml sachets for one-time use to 100 ml bottles. Some products are also available in larger bottles. 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.


SPA ScenTouch

Oil, grease, silicone and water-free – what does it really mean?

pjur SPA ScenTouch massage lotions use a new formula, specially developed for sensual massage using pjur SknTec quality procedures. The formula uses a base of organic diols, which has been optimized to keep all the benefits of a high-quality massage product and eliminate the drawbacks of other bases, such as oil or grease. ScenTouch Massage Lotions don't block pores, can be easily wiped away without leaving a trace, make your skin silky smooth, and don't leave stains on your clothes.

How is the pjur SPA massage lotion's scent created?

The scent is created using food-grade aromas.

Do the massage lotions contain preservatives?

pjur SPA ScenTouch Neutral Way massage lotion is preservative-free. We use food-grade aromas, but to get these scent notes, the other massage lotions have to use substances that must be labeled as "preservatives" according to regulations. In fact, they do not act as preservatives, but as carriers for aromas or perfumes.

Are the pjur SPA ScenTouch massage lotions glycerin and paraben-free?

Yes, the products are glycerin and paraben-free.

How are the new pjur SPA ScenTouch massage lotions different from personal lubricants?

Using pjur silicone lubricants for massage is still fine – with our massage lotions, we are simply expanding the possibilities using fragrance and precise dispensing and spreading.

Are the pjur SPA ScenTouch massage lotions more suitable for massage?

The massage lotions are solely and specially designed to be used for massage. The difference is in the viscosity. The Massage lotions are thicker, making handling and dispensing simpler. This enables precise application and spreading over the desired body areas. The formulas can be more easily measured than a lubricant, which optimizes their usefulness in massage.

Naturally, pjur silicone lubricants can also be used for massage. But if you would like to enhance purely erotic or relaxing massage via sensual scent and improved measuring, the pjur SPA ScenTouch Massage series is for you!

If the massage becomes more intimate, pjur lubricants are naturally the right choice and the perfect match.

The package says, "The warmth you feel is not caused by the product's ingredients." So, what is it caused by?

The massage products have no warming ingredients. However (!): The higher viscosity creates more friction during massage than, for example, a personal lubricant. This can cause a warming sensation (without damaging the skin).

Do a warming sensation happen, after the lotion is applied?

Yes! The higher viscosity creates more friction during massage than, for example, a personal lubricant. This can cause a warming sensation, without damaging the skin, of course.

Is the pjur SPA Series dermatologically tested?

Yes, the pjur SPA ScenTouch massage lotions are dermatologically tested.

What does Vitamin E do for the skin?

What does the ingredient jojoba do?

The massage lotions contain jojoba. This hydrates the skin, nourishes it, and makes it more supple.

Can the massage lotions be ingested without any risk?

Yes. There is no concern if they are ingested. They are not toxic, nor do they have a laxative effect.

Do the products taste like anything?

In order to focus on a seductive, relaxing, and sensual massage experience without compromise, the product's taste was not prioritized. The product has a neutral taste, and because taste is, naturally, very personal, one person might perceive it differently from another.

The formulas do not dry up. You can remove them from the skin by simply wiping with a cloth (or rinsing with water, of course). Remove them from clothing and other textiles by simply using water and a scrubber.

How do I remove the product from textiles?

Remove it from clothing and other textiles by simply using water and a scrubber.

Are the products UV protective?

No, the massage lotions provide no UV protection.

How much lotion should be used for a massage?

This is up to you as individual user! It depends on the massage intensity, the area to be massaged, and personal preference. The more lotion is used, the longer the scent and massage properties will last.

How can I best preserve lotion that is already opened?

Opened products should be kept at room temperature with the cap on. They should be kept out of direct sunlight. They should not be refrigerated, because they will get thicker. The formulas will not be ruined by refrigeration, though.

Can ScenTouch products be used with condoms?

No, the products are formulated strictly for use in sensual and erotic massage. They are not lubricants, and are not compatible with condoms(!). For this use, we recommend pjur love and pjur med personal lubricants.
