We're so excited to hear from you!
It's so refreshing to get your thoughts, feedback and encouragement!
We've been getting quite a few questions regarding the balm & the vulva, thanks to our vulva balm questionnaire.
Questions as to WHY you should use intimate care ? Doubts that you should be cleaning your "Down-there" parts? IS Douching THE only way to clean your V...?
We wanted to answer all of them. Let's dive right in.
1. Do I have to use an intimate product every day and not only when I need it?
Luckily, there is no rule of thumb when it comes to intimate care.
Exactly like you do your face cream, you are not bound to it and can decide when and how often you want to use it.
The important thing is to keep your Vulva (not Vagina!) clean: Any unscented & pH balanced soap will do the trick.
As for our balm, it's there to help soothe any chaffing, dryness and irritation on your Vulva (ONLY the outside bits).
No strings attached!
You can use it as often as you like and when you feel the need!
2. Studies have shown that douches are not good for VJJs, will a balm be?
In the US, one in five women 15 to 44 years old douche. However, most doctors recommend that women don’t douche.
Douching can upset the natural balance of bacteria in the vagina and it is associated with various reproductive health problems.
"A healthy vagina has good and harmful bacteria. The balance of bacteria helps maintain an acidic environment. The acidic environment protects the vagina from infections or irritation."
The Vagina is self-cleaning. It does NOT need help. By cleaning it, you may imbalance your Vagina's natural pH levels and leave the door open for infections, STIs, etc.
On the Other Hand, the VULVA (outside bits) NEEDS ALL your attention to get clean!
We created our balm to soothe your Vulva, not the vagina.
Our Vulvas have to deal with a lot: jeans, sex, waxing, shaving, birth, menopause...
Our Balm helps you relieve any discomfort in a safe way, without disrupting your pH balance!
3. Just make sure it’s all natural and doesn’t leave a mark on my underwear ;)
We're only using plant-based ingredients (oils essentially- list soon to come)!
- 100% natural = Organic.
- The formula is 100% #clean (no toxic chemicals).
- Cruelty-free - NO TESTING ON ANIMALS
- Eco-friendly packaging and containers (recyclable)
Although we use oils, the texture is lovely and the balm is quickly absorbed by your vulva. So... your underwear is safe.
We've got you ;) You don't want it to be more gross than you feel it sometimes is. And who would want to ruin a pair of perfectly enjoyable panties?
That's it so far, Peach! We'll be sure to update this blog post should there be any new questions! :)
