The female genital area is protected by the natural production of Lactic Acid in the vagina. When young women begin to menstruate, the level of estrogen in the body starts to rise. The pH level of the genitals starts to decrease to a more acidic pH value of 3.8. The gentle pH3.8 formula of Feminine Intimate Wash pH3.8 supports the micro-flora balance of the intimate area. Therefore, it helps to protect against harmful micro-organisms, infections and odour formation. This non-irritating formula naturally soothes and moisturizes with botanical bisabolol and aloe vera. Gentle enough for daily use.
