Many oils like petroleum jelly are not good lubes for women - and are a bad mix with condoms and diaphragms.
It's not quite clear which ingredient the OP has allergic reaction to-I'm guessing glycerin, as it's believed to promote yeast infections in some women.

A product that lacks one component (which one is trying to avoid) may substitute another that could cause other irritations or compromise other desired features of the lubricant (such as silicone or petroleum-based)-such as if one is concerned about condom breakage. I'd also second (or third, whatever) the notion of skipping anything that touts "heating/warmth" properties-inflammation of one's personal bits is the opposite of what one wants, in the case of a person who is sensitive to these typical ingredients.

Have you (OP) checked the Wiki page ? It's a start, in terms of giving overview of lube types (and associated pros & cons of each kind)-
Personal lubricant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here's one suggestion, but again, I can't say whether it would be tolerable to someone else-
"Liquid Sex" personal lubricant, "sensitive light" variety.
Ingredients: Glycol, Panthenol, Ascorbic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Chamomilla Recuita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Cellulose Gum, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea.

Of course, people can be sensitive to parabens or other of these constituents-so finding a workable compromise product can take awhile-but I wish the OP luck with it
