There’s a huge market out there for feminine products but not every product is great for you vagina. Some of these products are going to mess with your vaginal pH and could even cause an infection. You definitely don’t want to deal with that when you don’t have to.
But the good news is there are plenty of products out there that won’t affect your vaginal pH at all. They’re formulated to make sure to give you the benefits you want without any other negative side effects. Are you curious about what products won’t change your vaginal pH?
Let’s take a look at some products you can use to care for your Vee without changing your vaginal pH.
1. Lola Cleansing Wipes
From mylola.com these cleansing wipes are everything you’re looking for when it comes to wanting a quick freshening up down there. They’re formulated without dyes, fragrances, or other common vaginal irritants. They’re also made out of 100 percent bamboo and purified water.
These wipes are great to use during your period when it’s time to change your tampon or pad. You can wipe yourself clean and feel a little better than normal during that time of the month. They’re also individually wrapped so you can carry them with you for freshening up on the go too. Toss some in your gym bag or purse to feel clean while you’re out and about.
2. Dove Sensitive Skin Bath Bars
Dove’s Bath Bars aren’t made specifically for your vulva but they’re still a great option. They’re fragrance free and extremely gentle. You can use them while you’re showering and safely wash your external areas down there. (Remember, you don’t need to put anything inside your vagina to clean it. Including douches.)
When your doctor tells you that you should be using a gentle soap and warm water to wash your vaginal area, this is exactly what they mean. In addition to being gentle they’re also hypo-allergenic so you won’t have to worry about reacting to them either. You’ll love this bar and may find that you use it all over your body too.
3. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
If you want something different than a bar soap but still gentle then this is a great option. It’s unscented and made to be extremely easy on your skin. It comes in a pump bottle and you can use a small amount to clean your vulva without worrying about irritating anything down there.
Cetaphil is also made to be non-drying. That means it won’t dry out your skin anywhere, including your vagina. This is great news for your comfort and well-being.
4. Sweet Spot Labs Body And Feminine Wipes
Another wipe that is great for cleaning quickly is this one by Sweet Spot Labs. They’re already pH balanced so you don’t have to worry about them changing anything about your vaginal pH. They’re made to protect that for you. It’s great news for anyone who is a huge fan of vaginal wipes.
These do come in a few different scents but most of the time your best option is to go with an unscented wipe. If you do want to choose a scent then this is one of the best brands to do that with. The ingredients are more natural and many doctors are okay with these ingredients already.
