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.

What are the different types of intimate odor?

We all have our unique scent. It's natural. But there are factors that can create external odors that you may find unpleasant. The vulva has sweat glands just like the armpit, and sweat bacteria leads to odor. Bodily fluids including menstrual blood, urine, and semen also create external odor. Noticeable odor may be a sign of a pH imbalance. Internal vaginal infections such as BV produce a strong fishy odor which should be discussed with your doctor. If an odor is particularly strong or lasts for several days even with regular hygiene, speak with your doctor about it.

Why should I use an intimate wash?

We all use many products specially formulated for a specific area of the body -- toothpaste to clean teeth, shampoo to clean hair. Vagisil® washes are no exception. They are designed especially for vulvar use – pH balanced to vulvar skin, safe and effective for sensitive intimate skin, and tested by gynecologists and dermatologists. 

Are Vagisil® wipes flushable?

No. Please do not flush wipes. Please follow disposal directions on package.
