Personal lubricants are liquids or gels that women or their partners apply during sexual intercourse and masturbation to reduce friction, enhance pleasure, or reduce pain. Personal lubricants are also commonly used as a remedy for vaginal dryness. It is considered to be the easiest and most effective method of overcoming dryness and chafing during sex. It can be applied to any part of the body based on desire. These are also applied inside or outside condoms. These can be classified into water-based, oil-based, and silicone-based lubricants based on their composition.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio's team said: "In an attempt to distinguish their products from the rest of the market offerings, manufacturers are experimenting boldly with new flavors, ingredients, and even packaging and design. Personal lubricants using aloe vera are the most talked about. In early 2014, Astroglide introduced 'Aloe Cadabra', a personal lubricant with 95% organic aloe and vitamin E, setting a trend in the market for aloe-based personal lubricants. A more recent launch was 'Foria', a personal lubricant that contains marijuana or cannabis extract. However, only a person with a marijuana card or a doctor's prescription will be able to purchase it in the US."
