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.

The younger generation is becoming aware of personal lubricants and other sexual wellness products because they are more independent and open to experimentation. Manufacturers are looking to ride this wave of change and help in changing the society's mindset through marketing strategies. Sexual wellness is becoming less of a taboo and more of a requirement for today's population.
