FAQs

CBD Intimacy Body Care

Unlike many companies who make CBD body care products, we start with the highest quality ingredients to make a great product. Then we add in locally grown hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD). We take great pride in our attention to how the various ingredients work together to provide an exceptional experience to our customers. 

The oils, butters, and other skincare ingredients that we use are designed to nourish, soothe, and moisturize your skin while simultaneously delivering the benefits of CBD. Our raw ingredients are responsibly sourced, minimally processed, and are food grade when possible. Most municipalities will readily accept our packaging for recycle too.

CBD Product FAQs
How do I use your products?
Please see the page specific to the product you are interested in for suggested use.

 

Are your products safe to eat?
Although the ingredients we use are not toxic or harmful if ingested and most of them are food grade, they are not manufactured in an environment that the FDA considers to be “food safe.” We do not recommend eating your body care products.

 

Are your products safe to use around/on/in genitals?
Yes! Our Soothing Salve Sticks and Body Glides are designed to be gentle and avoid ingredients that can irritate these sensitive areas. Our Soaking Sand Bath Shots need to be diluted in water and should not be applied directly to the skin out of the container. Like any new product, we recommend you test it on skin that isn’t quite so sensitive to make sure that you don’t react poorly to any of the ingredients. Although our products work well for most people, everyone’s skin behaves differently and we can’t predict allergies or sensitivities .

 

Can I use your CBD products with your intimacy devices and toys?
Yes! Our CBD body care products work great alongside our toys. They can be used with quality toys that are made from body safe materials such as silicone, ABS plastic, and borosilicate glass. CBD products are not compatible with latex or latex condoms.
Cannabidiol (CBD) FAQ
What is CBD or cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a naturally occurring non-psychoactive compound found in hemp and marijuana. Many people use it medicinally but it also feels wonderful when applied directly to the skin. It can also enhance intimacy and increase sexual pleasure. We use pure CBD from Colorado grown hemp.

 

What does CBD feel like?
Everyone responds to CBD differently. It can be soothing, relaxing, calming, or tingly (in a warm and fuzzy kind of way).

 

Can using CBD products get me high?
No. CBD (cannabidiol) does not provide a high or cause impairment in judgement.

 

Do your products contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)?
No. We use pure cannabidiol (CBD) isolate in our products which does not contain any meaningful amounts of THC or other cannabinoids or compounds.

 

Is CBD legal?
Yes. It is legal in all 50 states and as of January 1, 2019 it is also legal at the federal level in the USA. For other countries, please refer to your nation’s laws.

 

How do I know that I’m getting quality CBD?
Our cannabidiol comes from Colorado grown hemp plants and is independently lab tested to ensure purity.

 

Are hemp seed oil and CBD oil the same thing?
No! They do both come from the cannabis sativa plant but they are different. CBD oil is an oil that specifically contains cannabidiol and produces that soothing and relaxing effect. Hemp seed oil is used both in skin care and for culinary purposes but is similar to olive oil and does not contain any cannabinoids.

 

How long does it take for CBD to take effect?
Typically you’ll feel the effects within 5-15 minutes. It varies depending on the person. If you’re using intimately, it is best to apply it during foreplay or the beginning of your session.

 

Why would I want to apply CBD to my skin?
Many people reap the benefits of CBD by consuming it, but it can also be highly beneficial when applied topically. Our products include a variety of additional ingredients to moisturize and soothe dry or irritated skin. When it is used intimately, it enhances sex for many people and provides some fun and exciting foreplay options too.

Intimacy Devices

Intimacy devices, like many other mechanical creations, are driven by motors and electrical current. The way they feel to the touch and respond to a person’s body is determined by the basic fundamentals of materials science. It is our belief that all of the components that go into making intimacy devices should be of the highest standard and that the resulting product should meet specifications that will ensure both its quality and effectiveness.

Product Care

How to Properly Care for Your Intimacy Device

  • Wash with soap and warm water or use antibacterial intimacy device cleaner.
  • Dry with a clean, soft cloth.
  • If your intimacy device is powered by replaceable batteries, we recommend removing the batteries when not in use.
  • In order to preserve the appearance of your intimacy device, we recommend storing it in a soft, cloth pouch when not in use. If your intimacy device came with a storage pouch, we recommend using that for storage.
Body Safe Materials

What does “body safe materials” mean and why is it important?

The adult toy and intimacy device industry is unregulated and, unfortunately, that means that many toys are being made with unsafe materials. Products containing TPE, TPR, and other “jelly” materials are inexpensive to produce but can be dangerous, especially for people with sensitivities. These materials are porous and cannot be properly sanitized which provides a breeding ground for bacteria and increases transmission of STIs. They also contain phthalates which have been linked to birth defects, infertility, and cancer. 

When you buy your next toy or intimacy device, you should look for materials like silicone, ABS plastic, and borosilicate glass which are non-porous, can be completely sanitized, and don’T contain phthalates. (All EngErotics toys are made with body safe materials.)

Materials We Use

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)

ABS is a plastic that is used widely across a number of different industries and in a myriad of products everywhere. From musical instruments, to sports equipment, to intimacy devices, ABS plastic is quite popular when it comes to molded products. This rigid material is smooth to the touch and is often given a polyurethane coating to give the final product a soft, velvety feel. ABS is compatible with all types of lubricants, hypoallergenic, and both phthalate and latex free. An anti-bacterial cleaner that is made especially for intimacy devices can be used for easy cleaning.
Silicone
Silicone is a polymer that is composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. While there are multiple formulations for silicone, its basic elements remain the same. In its purest form, this material is hypoallergenic, heat resistant, and completely inert causing no reaction with a person’s natural body chemistry. It is phthalate-free and easy to clean using an anti-bacterial cleaner designed for intimacy devices. Use only water-based lubricants on silicone intimacy devices as a silicone-based lubricant will ruin the product.
Materials We Do NOT Use
Phthalates
Phthalates are a group of chemicals used to make plastics more flexible and harder to break. They are often called plasticizers. Some phthalates are used as solvents (dissolving agents) for other materials and are also used in hundreds of products, such as vinyl flooring, adhesives, detergents, lubricating oils, automotive plastics, plastic clothes (raincoats), and personal-care products (soaps, shampoos, hair sprays, and nail polishes). While the effects of Phthalates are not yet fully known, we at EngErotics would rather protect your health by sticking with materials that have been proven safe. For more details on Phtalates, please check out these sites: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; U.S. Food & Drug Administration; ToxTown (from the U.S. National Library of Medicine)
