Natural Intimate Washes by YAKA

Natural Intimate Washes by YAKA Female intimate hygiene is extremely important for vulvovaginal health because it helps to prevent infections in the vagina and urinary tract. Unfortunately, mass-market intimate washes may cause irritation due to disturbing the natural pH balance of the vagina. In order to prevent this unfortunate side effect, you should stick to natural products, such as herbal intimate washes by YAKA.

A lot of women use soap or shower gel for intimate hygiene but this is not advisable. The matter is, the natural pH balance of the vagina and vulva differs from the pH balance of the skin. An average vaginal pH of healthy women of fertile age is ranging between 3.8 and 4.5, which means that it’s acidic. The acidic pH of the vagina normally prevents the growth of pathogenic microbes.

Soaps and shower gels are designed to clean the skin so they may disturb the acidic balance of the vagina, which, in its turn, may affect the vaginal flora. Besides, they often contain fragrances and dyes that may irritate the sensitive skin and mucosae of female intimate parts. The pH balance of a good intimate wash is the same the as pH of the vagina, and it doesn’t contain ingredients that may cause irritation.

Most intimate washes contain lactic acid. This is a natural organic compound produced by the bacteria that form a big part of a healthy vaginal flora. The lactic acid produced by vaginal bacteria inhibits the growth of pathogenic microorganisms and provides a natural defense against irritation, itching and infection. Intimate washes with lactic acid contribute to maintaining the natural pH balance of the vagina and produce an antimicrobial, anti-irritant, and anti-inflammatory effect.

Alongside lactic acid, intimate washes usually contain herbal extracts and low concentrations of essential oils that have soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Common ingredients include chamomile extract, calendula (marigold) extract, sage extract, green tea extract, aloe vera extract, and tea tree essential oil. Ingredients that you should avoid include synthetic surfactants, parabens and fragrances, such as SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), SLES (sodium laureth sulfate), methylparaben (E218), ethylparaben (E214), propylbaraben (E216), and others. They may irritate the skin of your intimate parts and cause other unpleasant side effects.

Ukrainian beauty brand YAKA presents a line of herbal intimate washes based on mild surfactants, lactic acid, and natural extracts and oils. Its products don’t contain any hazardous synthetic ingredients and are cruelty free. Thanks to lactic acid, the pH balance of YAKA’s intimate gels is 4.5, which means that they won’t disturb the natural acidic balance of your vagina.

The brand offers three intimate washes: Intimate Wash for Daily Use, Soothing Intimate Wash, and Intimate Wash for Menopausal Women (the last one has a neutral pH level of 6–7, which corresponds to an average vaginal pH level in menopausal women). They are formulated with highly effective natural ingredients that are valued for their soothing, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and bactericidal effect: aloe vera leaf juice, panthenol, grapeseed oil, white tea leaf extract, tea tree oil, chamomile extract, calendula extract, bisabolol (derived from chamomile oil), and allantoin.
