    Re: Will Aloe gel ruin my fleshlight

    Just remember that KY and it's generic alternatves likely have methylparaben as their preservative. At least that's what my tube says.

    But as long as you're not eating it!

    Re: Preservative for Xanthan lube

    Update: I've had a bottle last WELL over 5 months, unrefrigerated, with this ratio of methylparaben before being used up. I may have used a tad over. It is a VERY 'puffy' powder, if that makes any...

    My 8 oz bottle of XG lube with methylparen may last over 6 months..
    I mixed it quite thick (1 tsp for 8oz).

    Re: Xanthan Gum

    The thing is - iif you look at most store-bought bottles of lube, they almost ALWAYS include methyl/propyl parabens as a preservative.

    Re: Xanthan Gum

    Of course if you can get liquid glycerin, mix the xanthan with that first. It'll dissolve right away. THEN mix it with water.

    It doesn't matter either way IMO.. If it's already wet from soaking, you'll just have to use less lube.

    In the US, at least, you can also get liquid glycerin behind the pharmacy counter.
    $3 for 4 ounces at Walgreens.

    Or you can get a 32oz bottle of liquid glycerin at Snowdrift Farms for like $7-8.....
