We are not surprised that recent research on lubricant use and potential HIV infection found Wet® Platinum® to be one of the two safest lubricants in terms of the toxicity tested. All of our 80+ products have been developed, tested and manufactured to comply with stringent FDA Medical Device regulations, in our state-of-the-art facilities, for exceptional purity, consistency and comfort levels. According to the study, ingredients in some of the lubricants tested were found to be responsible for stripping away cells on the rectal tissue, thus increasing the risk of transmitting disease. The subject of the research study, the Wet Platinum product we market, does not contain these dissolved salts or sugars and was found by the study to have no toxicity. We look forward to further research on this topic and ask that specific questions regarding the study should be addressed to Lisa Rossi at RossilL@upmc.edu.”
