Tampons are not the only feminine care products that can be home to a plethora of unwanted irritants and pH un-friendly chemicals. You’d be surprised just how dirty your down there wash really is!
Chemicals of concern commonly used in feminine care products include carcinogens, reproductive toxins, endocrine disruptors, and allergens.
There is a multitude of reasons you should tend to your lady garden using natural products but chances are your body’s has been telling you all along. Have you ever washed at your SO’s house and felt a little extra dry down there or perhaps shaved with a new shaving cream and was left irritated? What about some of the more sensitive scaries that tend to happen with your complicated cocoon? We’ve all had those moments where, maybe it turned out to be nothing but..., poorly made/marketed feminine care has caused dryness and rashes all the way to more serious, crippling conditions like chronic yeast infections.
It is estimated that up to 40% of women use washes, douches, wipes or other cleansing products for down there, but most of the everyday products for the modern woman are made with a heavy list of unmentionables that can irritate your intimate areas. In an article by Dr. Joseph Mecola, he called feminine care a ticking time bomb of unsavory ingredients. He gave special call-outs to the fact that traditional personal care brands use a multitude of endocrine-disrupting ingredients that have direct links to reproductive issues.

Let me speak completely honestly. As a female, I have had my fair share of intimate area issues and mishaps ranging from shaving nicks, that had the optics of the special fx in the shower scene scene from Pyscho, to your run of the mill yeast infection that seems to be camping out for much too long. Lady Suite has been something of a savior for me. The products are great, but moreso, the information is essential. It’s a relief not to have to turn to google for more info on an odd bump in a netherregion and read a self-diagnosis online that I may be dying of the ancient Bubonic Plague.
Feminist and sexual health issues aside, this silky cleanser truly softens and washes the most delicate of areas. If swan kisses on a cloud were a thing, this is what they would feel like. The formulation itself is pH-balanced for true balance and includes a thoughtful blend of probiotics for full circle feminine health. The fact that the packaging is discrete and modern makes it easy to display anywhere or carry in my gym bag for on-the-go “bird-baths.”
