It is important to maintain pH balanced of our body. Check your vagina is in the optimal pH range.
We cannot simply use the same cleanser for all body parts. We use different products for the face and the body. Same logic can be applied here for female intimate area that is so much sensitive and needs to be treated carefully. Prepare a RIGHT product for your intimate area!
We should be cautious about choosing personal care products. Women’s vagina is sensitively pH balanced. Harsh soap or body wash can disrupt the balance and cause irritation or dryness of the intimae area. As personal care products are closely related to hygiene, WT recommends you to choose a soap-free, with natural ingredients feminine cleanser.
In a healthy female body, the vaginal pH levels are slightly towards the acidic side, somewhere between 3.8 and 4.5. This is natural and for the protection of the genital organs. Certain beneficial bacteria stay there and help to maintain normal vaginal pH.
A slightly acidic pH is essential and guards the vagina against infections. It does not let harmful bacteria and fungi grow there. So the vagina is healthiest when it has an acidic pH level.
pH is a scale of acidity and alkalinity.
The measurements range from 0 to 14: a pH lower than 7 is acidic, and a pH higher than 7 is considered alkaline.
An imbalance in the vaginal pH may cause itching, burning while urinating, excess discharge and even infections.
