Here's How Feminine Wash Is Different From Regular Soap
After you hit puberty, you might have noticed certain changes taking place in your body. For instance, you may have encountered different odors or types of discharge in your intimate area. Don’t worry! These are perfectly normal and are mostly nothing to worry about.
But as your body matures, your feminine area will require special care that your regular soap bar might not be able to provide. This is why many women turn to feminine wash when taking care of their V.
How does a feminine wash differ from soap?
To answer this question, we first need to discuss vaginal pH level. The vagina maintains a pH level pegged at about 4.5 to prevent bacteria from breeding down there. Following the pH scale, this means that a healthy V is slightly acidic.
Washing your feminine area with regular soap can upset this natural pH balance as many bath soaps are basic or have alkaline at a pH level pegged above 7. When this happens, odor-causing bacteria can thrive down there and make you feel uncomfortable. In worse cases, it can even lead to bacterial vaginosis, which can cause an abnormal amount of discharge or a foul smell. Yikes!
On the other hand, a wash specifically formulated for the feminine area matches the vagina's delicate pH so it doesn’t stand in the way of your body’s natural barrier against bacteria. This also makes feminine wash safe for daily use.
What should you look for in a feminine wash?
While there are many options for feminine wash available in the market nowadays, your best bet is an anti-bacterial product that's also gentle on your V, like pH Care Naturals Guava. There’s a reason Filipino moms swear by guava leaves and extracts and that’s because its antibacterial properties are backed up by Filipino tradition and actual science. With regular use, this wash will help protect your vag from itch and irritation, in addition to bacteria and odor.
But while pH Care Naturals Guava is tough against bacteria, you’d be pleased to know that is gentle on the skin, making it safe for everyday use. Plus, its mild scent will help keep you feeling fresh all day when used regularly! Even better: pH Care Naturals Guava is also available as feminine wipes for ladies on-the-go.
Have you ever gone from 'oh em! nakahihiya' to owning it real quick?
Let's be honest: Getting a whiff of foul odor from your feminine area when hanging out with friends can be downright embarrassing. But you can easily turn this experience around with regular use of pH Care Naturals Guava and a dash of confidence.
