Do you need special products for your vulva?
Even if you already have a hygiene routine that works well for you, you might be curious about the different ways to care for your V-zone.
Questions from, “Is it OK to use normal soap and water down there?” to “Which areas of my vulva should I wash?” are common.
Your vulva is unique, and so is the way you’ll look after it. You might not want or need any ‘special’ care for it at all. But say you’re sporty, and are looking for something to handle the sweat around your V-zone that won’t mess with your natural pH. Or on busier days, you want something that’ll give you a quick freshen up without having to wash.
Our V-Care™ washes, wipes and liners [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] should be treated like anything else in your bathroom: the shampoo that suits your hair-type, the toothpaste that makes your teeth feel squeaky clean, or the moisturiser that best nourishes your skin.
Intimate Wash Gel vs normal soap
You should only ever clean your vulva (the external genitalia), because washing your vagina can upset your pH balance and levels of good bacteria, making you more prone to infection. If you’ve found that normal soaps and shower gels have made your V-zone area itchy, dry or irritated, it might be worth trying out products that have been made for more sensitive areas of your body.
Our Daily V-Care™ Wash Gels [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] are gentle enough for cleaning without making you dry or itchy, plus they support your vulva and vagina’s natural pH, so you’ll feel fresh and comfy after your shower.
If you’re looking for something to ease drier skin, our shea butter and almond Intimate Gel Wash [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] will help your vulva to feel soft and moisturised. We’ve also created a Gel Wash with aloe vera [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE], and because we haven’t added any perfume to it, it’s ideal if you’ve got sensitive skin [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE].
Daily V-Care™ Wipes
Our Daily V-Care™ Wipes [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] are perfect for the times you want to give your V-zone a freshen-up without washing. They’re especially handy for festivals, after you’ve done sport or if you’ve just had sex. And if you’re on your period, you can have a quick clean up during bathroom trips, without needing any water.
Daily V-Care™ Liners
Discharge is healthy, and normal. If you find on some days you’re a little damp, our Daily V-Care™ Liners [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] can come in handy. They absorb moisture and allow your skin to breathe, so they’re ideal if you have occasional spotting, or for times when discharge is heavier in your cycle.
If you’re a teenager
You might have irregular periods or spotting if you’ve recently started your periods. This is totally normal, but can mean you’re sometimes unprepared. Popping some of our Daily V-Care™ Liners [LINK TO PRODUCT PAGE] into your bag means you’ll have something handy until you can get a pad or tampon.
