Here at SurgiLube®, we create superior products to help ease patient discomfort during invasive procedures by offering a product that helps lubricate whatever instrument is being inserted into an orifice. Our intent is to provide a safe, sterile product that makes the job of the medical professional smoother while making the patient as comfortable as possible. However, we know that when a high-quality product is available, people find other uses for it. Here are some of the off-label, alternative uses we have heard our product being used for.
While we cannot speak to the effectiveness in any of these scenarios because our product testers do research on the label uses, we are proud to provide a useful product for multiple settings.
One of the most obvious alternative uses for our water-soluble bacteriostatic surgical lubricating jelly is to increase comfort and pleasure during sex acts. We are convinced that some people prefer our lubricant over other products that are designed specifically for sex because our product is fragrance and dye free, which causes less irritation, and is kosher and bacteriostatic in addition to maintaining superior viscosity. SurgiLube® surgical lubricant is safe to use in any orifice; however, it should be noted that our product is not spermicidal and does not prevent pregnancy or the transmission of STD/STI.
Additionally, SurgiLube® surgical lubricant makes an excellent massage oil for many of the same reasons it makes a quality personal lubricant. The features that make is safe to use inside the body make it safe to use on the surface as well. However, our product does not include any warming properties, relaxing scents, or nutrients for your skin that other massage oils may boast.
Well, sure, if you want to give it a shot! We have been praised by some life-hackers for providing a product that smoothes flyaways without damaging the hair follicle. This use strays pretty far from its intended use, but we can assure you that if our lubricant is safe enough to use inside orifices, your hair will enjoy the moisture, worry-free.
Similar to some other products that are intended for this use, SurgiLube® surgical lubricant certainly provides a slick, smooth surface for your razor to glide right over, taking the hair and leaving moisturized skin behind. This is not the intended use of our product, and we would recommend not using this in the shower, as it will make the shower floor as viscous as your legs.
Along with some other household products, the slick texture of SurgiLube® surgical gel does allow for the easy removal of sticky messes. We have been told that hospital staff uses our product to remove difficult bandages and that people have used it to remove stickers from car bumpers and windows. One mother even cited us in her blog about how our lubricating jelly makes an excellent product for removing chewing gum from hair and waterproof mascara from eyelashes — we will take her word for it!
Unsticking the Stuck
In the hospital or at home, lubricating jelly can be used to help unstick things that are stuck but are not safe for other products, such as WD-40. It can be used to remove rings off of swollen fingers or to help wiggle limbs out from between banister posts. Of course, it can also be used in areas that don’t necessarily need the safety SurgiLube® surgical lubrication offers the living, such as locks and bike chains.
Improving Sport Performance
Endurance athletes, such as marathon runners and Iron Men, have sent us thank you letters for our product helping them go the extra mile. When other topical anti-chafing solutions wear out and require reapplication or turn into a sticky mess, SurgiLube® surgical lubricant’s superior viscosity keeps going! Place a small amount on nipples and inner thighs, or anywhere else that tends to chafe along the route. Although, we cannot speak to how our product will affect your clothing.
At HR Pharmaceuticals, we take pride in creating quality products for the use in the healthcare industry that helps keep patients safe and comfortable.

Our product is safe enough to use in a variety of ways, and we are proud that our product has uses outside of the hospital and can be a staple in any household. If you have any other uses for our products, we would love to hear from you!
