TOCA (Sp. for Touch) is a plant based, gender fluid, freaky, nature-loving product line that is high quality and based out of the desire to bring pleasure and eros to the forefront of our well-being and self expression. TOCA believes that when we increase our desire we do everything better.
TOCA developed out of a collaborative artistic and therapeutic dream of making products that sink into our natural systems, explode our senses and sizzle our loins. We want to make you tingle. TOCA is a one of kind project fusing clinical herbalism, sex education, nutrition, sexual health and trauma healing into dance routines and multiple orgasms.
We are plant lovers, sex lovers, and ultimately passionate about enthusiastic consent, authentic desire, and all the tools that make us more connective, fulfilled, and generous- to ourselves, our environment and each other. Our team is made up of experienced clinical herbalists, farmers, medicine makers, nutritionists, sex educators, formulators, and teachers. We believe that plant medicine acts in subtle and complex ways that provide meaningful shifts in the body so that you may facilitate your own healing and well being.
We create organic plant extracts from high quality ingredients, using infused oils, essential oils, flower essences, stone essences, saltwater and wind. We trust the elements, the plants, and the ecologies that we live in and are designed for. We create high potency, low dose products that are formulated to create a lasting and penetrating effect on the body.
