A new intimate lubrication cream is now available online.

The lotion's inventor - a Colorado woman called Shadi Ramey - said she hadn't previously thought about the ingredients in standard lubricants until she found herself reaching for her homemade hemp lotion one evening in the heat of the moment.

As a self-described culinary anthropologist, Ramey is passionate about food - and health. She created her hemp lotion because of her love for plant-based products. 

All the five ingredients within are organic or GMO-free; organic coconut oil, avocado oil, organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, organic hemp seed oil. 

After spontaneously using the cream one evening, she thought it was better than its shop-bought equivalent and decided to market it, and branded it Kama Cream (after the Sanskrit word meaning pleasure or desire).

'Toxic'

Digging deeper into the ingredients list of shop-bought creams was an eye-opening proceedure.

She says: "Knowledge is power, but it's also painful. They say they only have seven ingredients, but those seven ingredients are adrenal, hormonal and menstrual cycle interrupters ... by-products of the oil and gas industry not to be used on our skin or inside of our bodies — our intimate, precious parts of ourselves. 

"We are having these intimate experiences with toxic chemicals."

'Force for good'

Ramey has not assigned the official tittle of 'lubricant' to Kama Cream - partly because of the expense of the qualifying procedure but also because she says a lubricant 'insinuates something needs fixed' - she prefers the idea of enhancing rather than fixing.

She is a huge believer in her own product. "There's nothing like it. It's like whipped butter that melts when you put it on," she says, adding that hemp - the key ingredient - is the 'most amazing plant on the planet'.

The cruelty-free product is also eco-friendly, with one per cent of all proceeds going toward environmental causes. In additional, all waste is composted and recycled. It is also a woman-owned and run company.

Ramey says: "I am using it as a force for good and as a direct action against these big companies who have entered the realm of our sexuality."
