Three Things You Need in Your Intimate Care Checklist

Gone are the days of nonchalantly picking up the products that had the prettiest packaging or smelled the most like bubblegum. You are now unapologetically discerning of what you stock your bathroom shelf with – and rightfully so. In fact, you might have already passed an important milestone in every woman’s life – you’ve made the switch from regular body cleanser to a product dedicated to your intimate area.

But the question remains: How do you choose your intimate care product? Do you fall back into old habits and choose the one with the flashiest box or do you actually take the time to do some research?

We understand the business of figuring all of this out can be daunting. Just the thought of having to pore over product labels may already be giving you a headache. Not to worry. We’ve done the ground work for you. In our search for what makes a feminine care product worthy of a woman like yourself, we discovered the three things you should consider looking for in your intimate care checklist.

Does it have antioxidants and moisturising properties?

Let’s start with an easy one. Of course you want a feminine wash that keeps you clean. But did you know that there are products that have antioxidants and maintains the moisture in your sensitive intimate area’s skin?

One ingredient to look for in your feminine wash is Immortelle. Derived from nature, it is extracted from a plant called Helichrysum italicum – the Everlasting Flower. Its components serve as antioxidants that repair free radical damage. 8-10 What more could you want?

Is it sensitive to your skin’s needs?

Well, you also want a product that soothes. Itching and redness is a common occurrence in the intimate area and while they aren’t always a cause for concern, they can be irritating enough to put anyone in a bad mood.

The good news is another natural ingredient can take care of these annoying inconveniences and keep them away with regular use. SyriCalm™ is an extract of the Phragmites communis plant. It has been shown to relieve itching and redness all while protecting your skin’s barrier function.

Last but not least on the checklist…

Is it effective in neutralising odour?

Odour is a concern for all women. Our intimate area can sometimes make us feel less fresh than we want to be. With all the measures we take to keep the rest of our body as fresh as a daisy, why wouldn’t we do the same for our intimate area?

Once again, nature comes to our rescue with Deoplex®. This natural ingredient keeps odour at bay. It is so effective that it is even used in underarm deodorant and hand washes.
