Company founders Stephanie Elias and Hannah Hutton, frustrated by the retail market’s underwhelming selection of sexual wellness lubricants that contain harmful ingredients such as propylene glycol, benzene, benzoic acid and glycerin, decided to take advantage of 2020’s Covid pandemic downtime and create a fresh alternative to lubes that stain, leave a residue and negatively impact the body’s pH and hormone balance.
Enter Personal Fav sex serums: Whet, a silky-smooth water-based lube made with aloe, chamomile, ginseng, horny goat weed and hemp seed extracts, and Pique, a rich, CBD-infused formulation of natural oils, plus hemp, chamomile, horny goat weed, ginseng and rose.
“We have always wanted to create a self-care product that people could enjoy freely without concern for irritation, allergic reactions, hormone disruptors or infections in delicate areas,” said Hutton, who noted that many people she and Elias have spoken to over the past two years were unaware of the health risks of common lube ingredients.
“We decided to explore our options with gentle, clean ingredients and learn more about the power of plants and CBD to benefit users in terms of sensation, pain relief, calmness and orgasm intensity. I’m happy to say, we have succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.”
Elias added that “2022 has definitely been our breakout year – maybe people are feeling more frisky and buying more wellness products, maybe it’s been the praise Whet and Pique have received from media outlets such as Goop, Men’s Health, Glamour, Refinery29 and Authority Magazine, but we are so grateful to our customers for making this a year to remember. The past two years have been such a wild ride and we appreciate the support so much.”
In addition to its serums, Personal Fav also offers an online blog, “The Good Good”, that’s chock-full of articles, advice and ideas to inspire and educate about the complexities of the modern sexual landscape and how to improve intimate relationships.
