The external genital skin is very delicate and sensitive, which makes it vulnerable to irritation. That’s why it’s essential to keep the area free of secretions and protect it from chemical irritants. You may already know that the external genital skin cannot be cleaned with water alone, so what should you use.
What Should I Use for Sensitive Genital Skin?
Hypocontactant skincare products are the best option for sensitive genital skin because they are free of chemicals, dyes, and fragrances that can irritate this area.
When cleaning the genital skin, it is critical to avoid products with potentially allergic ingredients that could irritate the tissues. The vast majority of over-the-counter hygiene products such as wipes, douches, creams, and lubricants contain chemicals that can disrupt the delicate pH of the vagina and lead to infections.
A healthy vagina is home to a natural balance of bacteria dominated by beneficial bacteria that produce lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide and a host of bacteriocins to protect against infections.
FeminaRx Pure SkinCare Collection For Sensitive Genital Skin
FeminaRx is a collection of hypocontactant hygiene products specially designed for women with sensitive genital skin.
These products are the result of many years of clinical research and observations conducted by Dr. R. Stuart Fowler, board-certified gynecologist and founding physician of FGI. Over the years, Dr. Fowler has treated thousands of women with vulvovaginal symptoms and has found that many of these symptoms can be traced back to chemical exposure.
FeminaRx Pure SkinCare Collection contains the following:
- Hypocontactant soap
- Moisturizing skin lotion
- Astringent skin rinse for the external genitalia
- Nonreactive water-based vaginal lubricant for intercourse
- Non-water based labial emollient for sports and exercise to prevent tissue friction
- Special blend shaving cream for the genital area.
Cleaning the genital tissues regularly with hypocontactant soap washes away the secretions that naturally build up between the labial folds. A buildup of secretions can cause harmful bacteria and yeast to grow and lead to an infection.
The FeminaRx Collection supports vaginal health as it contains soothing ingredients that don’t irritate the skin.
