As the vagina is a self-cleaning organ, it doesn’t need any help to stay clean. In fact, cleaning can disrupt the natural balance of the vagina’s ecosystem, which can lead to infections like thrush and – if the pH level changes – BV.
The vulva (all the outer parts of the genitals) can be washed with water (using a pH-balanced, unscented washing product with water is also fine). Scented products, deodorants and soaps should be avoided, as these can also disrupt the natural balance of the vagina and change the pH level.
The wellness and beauty industries can use language claiming to ‘fix’ or ‘beautify’ things, when in fact they may not even need it.
