Feminine odour is not a topic commonly discussed over coffee or cocktails. But we just received a new delivery of feminine wash in store, and it sparked an idea to write a blog about feminine care down there.

Choosing the right feminine wash

The basic idea of these feminine washes is that the pH should be balanced to the right level. A balanced pH level will help maintain the health and freshness of your feminine parts. We all know how a change in pH or bacteria can lead to odour, itching, irritation and thrush. These vaginal problems can cause discomfort and embarrassment. They can even result in serious health problems if not taken care of immediately.

Ingredients to look out for!

There are hundreds of feminine wash brands out there.  Taking a minute to look at the product label is one of the helpful practices in selecting the right product for you. Some ingredients may not be suitable for your skin type. Some ingredients may cause more irritation. Whatever you do, keep the following ingredients in mind when you shop.

Lactic acid

There’s a reason why Cleopatra bathed in sour milk. It is known to contain lactic acid. And lactic acid helps clean the skin and maintain its pH level. 


If you are dealing with vaginal dryness, choosing a feminine wash with moisture-retaining glycerin is the way to go. It is a humectant that maintains moisture to the skin. 

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate

This cleaning compound may be beneficial in killing bacteria and removing dirt. However, it can cause irritation to the skin in excessive amounts. So, check the label before use especially if you have sensitive skin. 

Caprylic/Capric Glycerides

If glycerin attracts moisture to the skin, this ingredient restores the skin moisture. This is the reason why it is ideal in combatting skin dryness.
