FAQs

One woman's questions are every woman’s questions

Think you’re alone? Think again. Millions of women are asking the same questions you are, and we’re here to give you the answers you need.

What is pH, and why does it matter?

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 based on how acidic or alkaline something is – anything below 7 is acidic, while a number above 7 is alkaline (or basic). A healthy external vaginal area, or vulva, has an acidic pH. The acidic nature is important to your body’s natural defence and maintaining a good environment for a healthy external vaginal area. That’s why it’s so important to use products formulated to complement the natural pH range of your external vaginal area. 

Do I really need special products for my vulva?

Products formulated for your entire body can throw off the external vaginal pH balance and may cause discomfort or even irritation. All Vagisil® products are designed especially for vulvar use – pH balanced, safe and effective for sensitive intimate skin, and tested by gynaecologists and dermatologists.

Why would I use a vulvar powder?

Vagisil® Ultra Fresh powder is made with corn starch that absorbs moisture and odour to keep your intimate area fresh and comfortable. Its smooth, silky feel also protects from irritation due to chafing.
