As a blogger, I love trying out the newest products & sharing my two cents with you, whether it’s fashion, makeup, skincare or in this case feminine hygiene! Women’s health, menstruation & feminine hygiene are still things that we shy away from discussing openly, even though they’re very important. Today I talk about the importance of a good intimate wash & my experience with the Medimix Ayurvedic Intimate Hygiene Wash.With an approximate pH value ranging from 3.8 to 4.5, the vagina functions in a relatively acidic environment. The acidity is due to the production of lactic acid by Lactobacillus in the vagina. This pH range is required for a healthy vagina for protection purposes. Any pH value higher than 4.5 potentially leads to serious problems. The vagina is typically at or slightly above normal body temperature. This acidic environment is important to maintain so that certain pathogens can not cultivate in that area. But usually this is not an issue because the acidic environment makes it impossible for the pathogens to survive. It is important to maintain moisture to prevent dryness and irritation.
As stated above, the vagina functions pretty well at keeping itself clean & bacteria free most of the time. However, it is also quite a delicate area & susceptible to all kinds of infections, the risk of which would be higher in the summer, with accumulation of sweat, etc.
A lot of women make the mistake of cleaning their vaginal area with soap – that can lead to a lot more problems as it can disrupt the pH balance & dry out the area, causing further irritation.
Which is why I was excited to try out the new Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash – It is the world’s first Intimate Wash formulated using the expertise of Cholayil and the rich secrets of ancient Kerala Ayurveda. Made using only the choicest natural ingredients like: Lime, Rosemary, Neem, Sage, Aloe, Thyme, Vetiver & Bisabolol, it is the idealchemical-free cleansing wash for the vagina.
Additionally, it also contains lactic acid which encourages the natural vaginal acidity. Not only this, it conforms to a pH level of 3.5-4.5 which is an ideal level according to prominent Gynaecologists around the world.
Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash is an Ayurvedic formulation and all its ingredientsare natural as opposed to synthetic components in beauty products. Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash is free of chemicals like:
- SLES (Sulfate free)
- Nitrosamine free
- Paraben free
- Soap free
To use it, take a few drops of the product on your palms & apply and lather on your intimate areas, then rinse off with water.
It has mild baby care product surfactant which foams just enough. While I don’t use intimate wash daily most of the time, I feel it’s especially useful during periods, where there’s that uncomfortable feeling of wetness & even the best quality maxi pads tend to irritate the skin. I found the wash to be gentle, soothing & it leave you feeling clean but not dried out.
The Medimix Intimate Hygiene Wash is very affordable at ₹150 for 100ml just & it can be purchased online here.
