Petroleum-based lubricants are made from petroleum jelly, mineral oil, or petrolatum. These products include Vaseline® and baby oil.

Petroleum-based lubricants destroy latex and should never be used with condoms, diaphragms, or cervical caps.

In addition, petroleum lubricants should not be used inside the vagina. They are difficult to wash out, may irritate the vaginal lining, and change vaginal chemistry, increasing risk of infection.

They should not be ingested, and may cause allergic reactions. Finally, petroleum lubricants may stain linens and bedclothes. Despite these drawbacks, many couples still like petroleum-based lubricants, particularly for anal play.

NOTE: Both yeast and bacteria can grow in water and vegetable oils, but they cannot grow in mineral oil.
