DAILY INTIMATE WASH pH 5
Water is great, but you don’t only shower your armpits with water to get them clean, do you? Therefore we recommend the use of an intimate daily wash with pH 5.
ONLY WASH YOUR VULVA
The external vaginal area (vulva) is the only part to be washed. Douching is not needed, since the vagina is self cleansing.
For a touch of daily freshness – use DeoDoc’s intimate deodorant spray.
If you’re on the go, use the wipes instead – they’re both cleansing and keep you odor-free.
Lace underwear look great, but save them for special occasions. Instead, use cotton underwear. Cotton is a breathable fabric and will keep your vagina healthiest.
SHOWER GELS & SOAPS
Regular shower gels and soaps is not recommended or intended for the sensitive intimate area.
These products have a pH of 8 which is waaay too high. Remember, the external vaginal area has a pH of 5 so using products with a pH of 8 will destroy the natural pH-balance and cause vaginal discomfort.
Never douche or wash inside of the vagina. The inside of the vagina is an acidic environment with a pH of 3,5. It is also self cleansing, so there is no need for water or an intimate soap IN there.
REGULAR PERFUMES OR BODYLOTIONS
Never spray any regular perfumes or bodylotions in the intimate area. That’s vaginal suicide!!!
Washing the intimate area too many times a day will ruin the natural pH-balance, and thus cause vaginal irritation and discomfort.
