How do I choose the best feminine wash for me?

Find one that: is recommended by doctors, has natural ingredients (such as lactoserum and lactic acid), and is not strongly-scented2. Try Lactacyd® feminine wash. It’s made especially for every woman’s intimate needs.

How should a feminine wash be used? Can I use it on a daily basis?

Put a small amount on your hand and apply it on your external vaginal area during a shower, a bath, or in-between on a daily basis. But make sure that your feminine wash is very gentle and has natural ingredients to protect you from a vaginal pH imbalance, which causes infections. Lactacyd® feminine wash was made for everyday use. So use it as often as you want to keep you fresh and protected (2).

I’ve been using liquid soap and soap bars for years to wash my vagina, and I haven’t had any trouble yet. Do I really need to use a feminine wash?

You’re lucky you haven’t had any problems yet using those harsh substances for your vagina. Or probably, you’re just not showing symptoms of a bacterial infection. Since, studies have proven that almost 50% of women are asymptomatic when it comes to bacterial vaginosis (BV). Soaps in any form (liquid or bars) usually contain a high pH value that are very far from the vagina’s own natural environment. Products like these will damage the vagina’s natural acidic layer, which serves as its protection from bad bacteria. Frequent use of irritant chemicals like soap will gradually destroy the vagina’s sensitive environment, so only the gentlest cleansing is needed. Use the right feminine wash everyday.

What is Lactoserum?

Lactoserum is a natural ingredient refined from milk. It is used to stabilize and maintain the vagina’s natural levels.

What is Lactic Acid?

Lactic acid is also called “milk” acid. This syrupy, water-soluble liquid is very important in the vagina’s self-defence cycle since it works to keep the vagina’s natural environment at its perfect balance. Through this, the good and bad bacteria present in the vagina are each kept at their right levels keeping the intimate area safe from all kinds of infection. Lactic acid is produced by the good bacteria lactobacilli, whose growth is in turn also facilitated by lactic acid.

What are Lactobacilli?

Lactobacilli are good bacteria, which produce lactic acid that keeps the vagina safe from germ invasion. The lactic acid produced by lactobacilli creates an acidic environment to guard the vagina from an overgrowth of harmful bacteria, which leads to different infections. The greater the number of lactobacilli, the more stable the natural acidic environment is for the vagina.
