Here are some of our FAQs from parents, but you can always drop us a line or visit Vagisil.com to learn more.
Is OMV! safe for my teen?
Yes. Our products are gynecologist tested and contain safe and gentle ingredients. They’re also pH balanced, which means they won’t upset the pH levels of the vulvar area. Unlike many body washes or soap that aren’t formulated this way, our pH level makes OMV! a great choice for your teen to use for cleansing all over. All-Day Fresh Wash contains no dyes, parabens, or MIT preservatives. OMV is for external use only.
Why would my teen need an OMV! product?
Most teens have grown up using washes and wipes – usually something mom, or the whole family, uses. Teens are feeling more independent and making more of their own personal care choices, from their shampoo brand to their underarm deodorant. Teens told us they’d really like a personal care line of their own that was designed to their specifications, in scents they like, so the shower experience is an enjoyable one. All-Day Fresh Wash and No-Sweat Wipettes are made to meet teen’s requests for in the shower or on the go. Bikini Anti-Itch Serum soothes irritation caused by shaving or waxing (if your teen does that) and any vulvar itching they may experience from wearing pads during their period. All OMV! products are for external use and should not be used inside the vagina.
Why did Vagisil® make the OMV! line?
OMV! was created for teens by the experts at Vagisil to give them personal care products designed with benefits they wanted. Most body washes have a fragrance, but usually tailored to Mom’s preferences. OMV! is as safe and gentle on a teen’s skin, but in scents all their own, in packaging selected by teens, and in formats requested by teens. Moms and teens told us personal care is important to them, and a line that feels ‘like my own’ would spark conversation around personal care their changing bodies, and beyond. PS: You don’t have to be a teen to use OMV!
Yes! In fact, we think that’s the best way to use it. It’s pH-balanced, which means it’s gentle enough for your vaginal area, and smells so good you’ll want to use it all-over.
What does OMV! smell like?
All three of our products have a light vanilla-clementine scent. It’s kind of sweet, kind of fruity, and totally delish.
Why would I need the Bikini Soothing Serum?
Shaving or waxing your bikini area can cause irritating bumps or redness. Our serum has oatmeal, vitamin E, and chamomile and helps to soothe skin.
Can I use OMV! No-Sweat Wipettes daily?
Yes, they are safe and gentle for everyday use.
Why does the pH level of an intimate wash matter?
Healthy skin in the vulvovaginal area (the area just outside of the vagina) has an acidic pH between 4 and 6. True soaps have an alkaline pH between 8 and 10, which can be harsh on vaginal area skin. Washes at the appropriate pH level (like OMV! All-Day Fresh Wash) will be gentler on the delicate skin of your vaginal area. And that concludes our chemistry lesson!
What’s the difference between a body wash and the All-Day Fresh Intimate Wash?
OMV! Intimate Wash is specially formulated to be gentle on vaginal area skin. Regular body washes may not be pH balanced for sensitive intimate area skin.
Will OMV! be harsh on my skin?
No! Our products are formulated within the proper pH level for intimate area skin and contain gentle ingredients and skin-friendly fragrances. Our skin soothing serum has oatmeal, vitamin E, and chamomile.
How should I use OMV! No-Sweat Wipettes?
Wipe from front to back and then discard in trash bin. Like most wipes, they are not flushable.
Do all OMV! products contain fragrance?
Yes, each of our products contain a light vanilla-clementine fragrance, which is tested so we know it’s safe on sensitive vaginal skin.
Are OMV! products tested to ensure they’re safe for use?
Absolutely! All of our products are gynecologist and clinically tested.
Can I use OMV! while I have my period?
We created OMV! with this exact situation in mind. Our wash, wipes, and serum are designed to help you feel fresh and comfortable, especially when you have your period. But you can use them any time of the month.
Who can use OMV! products?
You can use OMV! no matter how you identify—be it her, him, or they. And while OMV! Is designed for teens, all ages can use it.
Why did Vagisil make the OMV! line?
OMV! was designed by teens with the experts at Vagisil. We know how important it is for you to have a product that’s all your own, that smells the way you want it to, and that meets your specific needs. It’s as safe and gentle on your skin as Vagisil, but made with you in mind.
Can I use all of the OMV! products at the same time?
When needed, you can use the products simultaneously.
