If you have a vagina, you’ve probably felt itchy in that area at some point in your life. Vaginal itch is so common, in fact, women experience it more often than the common cold. And as you may know, itch isn’t a one-size-fits-all sensation. The feeling ranges from slightly bothersome to very irritating to OMG-my-vagina’s-on-fire. Needless to say, we’re of the mind that vaginal itch is less of a dirty little secret and more of a shared experience of womanhood. However, when itch does happen, it’s important to know what may be causing it so you can get relief.
Let’s talk about vaginal dryness, shall we? Firstly, it’s more common than you think! Vaginal dryness has affected 70% of women at some point in their lives. And contrary to popular belief, menopause isn’t the only culprit. Dryness can start as early as your 20s. (Yikes!). Stress, birth control, antihistamines, childbirth, breastfeeding, and even dehydration can cause vaginal dryness. It may also be a symptom of vaginal atrophy, a condition in which vaginal tissues become thinner and more easily irritated. And what about sex? When your heart says one thing but your vagina says another, it’s a recipe for unwanted interruptions. Vaginal dryness doesn’t have to keep you from feeling like yourself or looking forward to intimacy.
Fact: Your vaginal area has a lot of sweat glands. And we all know what happens when we sweat. Vaginal odour happens to all of us, but it shouldn’t stop you from doing you. So the next time you’re wondering if you’re the only fragrant woman in Pilates, know that you’re not and that there’s no shame in your game. When you do want a freshness solution, we’ll help you find one.

Aside from bringing back memories of science class, pH measures a degree of alkalinity or acidity. Healthy human skin, including the skin in the vulvar area, has an acidic pH in the range of 4 to 6.1. Vagisil® daily intimate washes are formulated to skin’s optimal pH level, unlike conventional cleansing products like some bar soaps and body washes.
