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 defense 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 gynecologists and dermatologists.
Why would I use a vulvar powder?
Vagisil® Odor Block® Powder, made with corn starch, absorbs moisture and odor to keep your intimate area fresh and comfortable. It contains Odor Block® Technology for up to 24 hour odor protection. Its smooth, silky feel also helps prevent chafing wherever you need it — between the thighs, under breasts and underarms. It's gentle enough for intimate skin and all-over.
