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 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 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 will help your vulva to feel soft and moisturised. We’ve also created a Gel Wash with aloe vera, and because we haven’t added any perfume to it, it’s ideal if you’ve got sensitive skin. 

Daily V-Care™ Wipes

Our Daily V-Care™ Wipes 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 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 into your bag means you’ll have something handy until you can get a pad or tampon.

After sport or on the go

After exercising, jumping into the shower might not always be an option. Our Daily V-Care™ Wipes are perfect for times like this, when you might want a quick freshen up.  If you’d like something to deal with any dampness in your underwear, or to keep you feeling comfy when you’re running around, our Daily V-Care™ Liners are always a good call.

If you wax or shave your pubic hair

Hair removal can cause skin to become sensitive, dry or irritated. Our Daily V-Care™ Wash Gel (perfume-free) contains aloe vera extract which can help to calm sensitive skin. Regular, gentle exfoliation during showertime and moisturisation afterwards will help keep your skin smooth and make you less likely to get ingrown hairs.

If you’re a new mum

If you’ve given birth vaginally your V-zone area might be tender or inflamed. Our Daily V-Care™ Wash Gel gently cleanses, soothes and calms your skin in the shower or bath.  
When your periods return, they might be irregular. Our Daily V-Care™ Liners are great for discharge or occasional spotting, when your cycle might be irregular. And our Daily Intimate Wipes will also mean you can give your V-zone a quick clean when you go to the bathroom.
