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.
Healthy skin in the vulvovaginal area (the area just outside of the vagina) has an acidic pH in the range of 4 to 6. True soaps have an alkaline pH in the range of 8 to 10, which can can be harsh on vaginal skin. Washes at the appropriate pH level will be the gentlest on the delicate skin of your vaginal area.
Vagisil® Sensitive Plus Daily Intimate Wash gently cleanses plus soothes, moisturizes and helps protect sensitive intimate skin, especially when it becomes dry and irritated. Scentsitive Scents™ Daily Intimate Washes cleanse and provide all-day freshness with skin-friendly scents that are gentle on delicate skin–because women shouldn’t have to compromise between scent and sensitive skin.
A prebiotic is a food or nutrient source for bacteria. As an ingredient in Vagisil® pH Balance Daily Intimate Wash, the prebiotic lactitol can provide nourishment for the vulvar lactobacillus, a strain of friendly bacteria that naturally occurs in the vagina.
Vagisil® ProHydrate® Moisturizing Gel’s unique bio-adherent formula coats the vaginal wall and slowly releases moisture over time. This helps to relieve vaginal dryness so you can feel comfortable and ready whenever the moment is right. It includes Hyaluronic Acid, which is a naturally occurring ingredient in the skin and is known to attract and retain moisture.
Vagisil® ProHydrate® Moisturizing Gel was specifically formulated to slowly release moisture over time. The formula is designed to contribute to natural moisture feel and should be used once every three days for best results. If the product is used more often it is not a safety concern but you may experience discharge as the vagina will expel what is not needed.
Vagisil® Prohydrate® Moisturizing Gel contains a small amount of glycerin and works together with Hyaluronic Acid and other water-loving (Hydrophilic) ingredients, that provide instant and time-released moisture, lubrication when needed, and comfort for any activity with less mess and convenience.
Both Vagisil® Maximum Strength Anti-Itch Creme and Regular Strength Anti-Itch Creme + Prebiotic have 2x the itch-fighting medicines or active ingredients: benzocaine and resorcinol. These formulas form a protective coating on the skin and numb instantly to provide temporary relief from pain and itch. The main difference between Vagisil® Maximum Strength Anti-Itch Creme and Regular Strength Anti-Itch Creme is the level of active ingredient. Vagisil® Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Creme for Sensitive Skin uses hydrocortisone acetate as the itch-fighting medicine or active ingredient. Gynecologists recommend hydrocortisone because it helps the natural healing of the skin and provides fast relief from itch and pain. This Vagisil® Creme also contains soothing oatmeal in a dye-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic formula.
