well, since I don't have a tv, and even if I did, I'm in another country and have no idea what you are talking about...I'd have to say that, um, yeah, oh well. But, USUALLY companies give out samples. Truthfully, I'd call up the company and ask them if you can get a sample size (and where and how) so that you can find out if you are allergic. Really.
I'm sure you could make your own. I made my own "lube" that I felt was safe based on my research (but do your own research because many people feel that oil based lube is NOT great to use and blah blah blah) that had sweet almond oil...or something like that as a base (olive oil would be even SAFER!!!) and I just put in a drop or two of some essential oils in a huge bottle and it was great.
B"H I haven't had a problem with "dryness" or something like that, but I DO have trouble getting back into the swing of things after having a baby and that can last for a while, so it really helps with that.
Of course, now we are talking about the exact opposite thing this thread is supposed to be about. Lol. Although, if you use certain eo's in it, you MIGHT be discouraging sperm from surviving (neem oil comes to mind...) So there ya go.
Good luck at your induction tomorrow. xoxo
