November 30, -0001

U.S. Patent No. 7,405,186 B2: Chemsil Silicones, Inc., Chatsworth, CA, has patented a method of using a lubricant. It entails placing an effective amount of a warming lubricant composition on a moist part of the body. The warming lubricant composition is comprised of a first polyalkylene glycol component portion having a first molecular weight, a second polyalkylene glycol component portion having a second molecular weight reduced relative to the first molecular weight, and an effective amount of a viscosity inducing component other than a cellulosic derivative. The first and second polyalkylene glycol component portions together comprised at least approximately 50% by weight of the warming lubricant composition, which is substantially clear and substantially anhydrous. The warming lubricant composition is effective to generate heat when placed on a moist part of the body.
