Just like synthetic fragrances in beauty products are a huge NO NO, the same goes for the products you use when cleansing your precious lady parts!
Many of the scented cleansers, soaps and wipes marketed towards woman today may have you feeling embarrassed of your natural scent;influencing you to buy their products in the hopes of smelling fresher. The problem with these “smell fresh” products is the harsh chemicals they contain which will throw off your pH and potentially cause infections,allergic reactions and vaginal dryness. Sure, it may sound appealing to have your vagina smell like fresh roses or lavender but not at the cost of your pH balance.
The vagina has its own ecosystem which is mildly acidic due to the growth of lactobacilli (good bacteria.) The acidic environment helps to prevent bad bacteria from overgrowing but if you use scented products to wash your vagina or even douche, you’re killing off the good bacteria and disturbing your delicate pH.
Although your vagina is a sensitive area, it possesses the power to self-cleanse which means you don’t need the addition of fancy, smell good soaps. However, the vulva (the external genital area) is ok to wash with water or all natural cleansers.
Our pH Balancing Cleanser is not only formulated with 100% natural ingredients but it’s OB/GYN recommended, gentle on skin and will have you feeling confident knowing you’re not altering your pH!
When it comes to washing your vaginal area, don’t overthink it ladies! Keep your products natural and remember to dry off well after your shower!
