Now Available: Kosher Lube
certified a line of lube as kosher for Orthodox Jews.
The US-made Wet range of lubes now has eight lines that have been given a religious stamp of approval, including its "Ecstasy" product. This means that rabbis from the Rabbinical Council of California have inspected Wet's 52,000 sq ft production plant and researched the origins of every ingredient to check none comes from items prohibited by kosher rules. As with many great innovations, the lubricant resulted from personal motivation. Sean Smith, president of Trigg Laboratories, which produces Wet, converted to Judaism after marrying a Jewish-Israeli woman.And why does lube need a kosher certification, while other products such as sunscreen and moisturizers do not? Because lube could be swallowed. (Tipped by JMG reader Kevin)
