Not all feminine wash are made the same. 8 reasons why THIS is the best!
Some may say "best" is subjective and hard to define by everyone's standards. Nevertheless, we say THIS is the definitive best feminine wash out there. Of course, that's a lofty claim, and here are 8 reasons why we say so.
Vagina ≠ Vulva
The intimate female area is a mysterious one. There's only so much we can see from the outside. Some may mistake this visual representation for the vagina. Vagina ≠ Vulva.
Well… simply put, the vagina is a self-cleansing muscular canal that connects the uterus to the exterior part of our bodies. This channel is also known as the birth canal.
The vulva is none other than the exterior part! This is the part we see. While the vaginal canal is self-cleaning, the vulva is not. The vulva consists of labia majora (outer lips), labia minora (inner lips), vaginal opening, clitoris and surrounding clitoral hood, and urethral opening.
Backed by science
This feminine wash, AKA the best one ever, was developed in partnership with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Creteil Hospital (European leader in gynecological surgery). The results? A quality range of effective feminine care products approved by gynaecologists, tried and tested by women.
Lab tests (on world's unique 3D intimate mucosa) and clinical trials on volunteers under gynecological supervision showed that this feminine wash has benefits, including moisturizing and 24-hour protection against irritations and infections.
We say NO to SLS!
Usually listed as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, this nasty extra is typically added for its foaming property to give washes a lush, creamy texture. But research has shown the adverse effects using sulfates can cause skin sensitivity, allergic reactions, and cancer. In addition, SLS can cause area dryness and upset the floral balance when it comes to our intimate area.
Address and fix problems with the right product
Using the wrong thing can cause a lot of problems. On the topic of our very personal zones, we may experience area irritation, dryness or more severe issues like Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). Bacteria can breed in the folds on our vulva and affect our other opening, the urethral opening. At least 1 in 2 women will experience UTI, and from personal experience, it is NOT FUN. Burning up in my head and between my legs are the last thing I expected and hoped for during my holiday in Taipei! The worst part was staying in bed for 2 days in the magical city of food and fun.
Using the right products, we can keep the nasties like yeast infections and UTIs at bay, keeping our secret garden the way it should be; loved and cared for.
Menopause ≠ Life on pause
The following massive change our womanly bodies will experience is menopause. When this phase of life comes at us, our vaginas’ normal pH levels of 3.5 to 4.5 will shoot up to 5 or 6. So naturally, this messes with our feminine floral, and using the best feminine wash can help to rebalance and reset pH levels.
Soft, supple skin for intimate beauty
Because soft skin is just the best. And suppose you'd have to choose one care product dedicated to our womanly bits. In that case, an all-compassing feminine wash is the best option. Besides ensuring our pH levels are in check, a quality wash can care for your skin and keep it moisturised. How's that for redefining inner beauty?
The star ingredient: The purple orchid
The purple orchid, featured as the star ingredient in the best feminine wash, is best known for its regenerative property. Polyphenols extracted from this flower provide protection against UV and prevent skin disorders, in addition to their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
