FAQs about Wash & Wipes
Vaginal pH can be influenced by all sorts of things; menstruation, sexual activity, soaps and douches, and more.
Wash: Lactobacilli bacteria (the healthy bacteria) in the vagina release lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide. These compounds keep the pH of the area low (acidic). We’ve included lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide in our wash inspired by the same pH range they appear in a healthy vagina to support this natural function.
Wipes: Our hypoallergenic wipes can help to keep you clean, fresh, and balanced - without any nasty ingredients.
When showering, dispense a dime-sized amount into your hand. Use your hand to apply to your vulva, lather and rinse. For best application, shake before use. You can use Wash any time you’re in the shower. Note that this cleanser is designed for your vulva, the area that surrounds and includes the vaginal opening. It’s not intended to be used for internal use (aka in the vagina).
Use any time you want to freshen up. That might be after sex, exercise, long plane rides — you know your body better than anyone.
We know—it’s confusing. There are a lot of bad washes out there and way too much vagina & vulva shaming. Our take? If you haven’t used a wash and haven’t felt like you needed one, then skip it! We just want to provide a safe option for anyone that is looking for one. Many body and intimate washes currently on the market include a lot of unnecessary ingredients ranging from preservation and emulsification chemicals to essential oils and plant extracts, which can all influence vaginal pH. Uqora Wash is a clean formula inspired by the natural chemistry of the vagina for anyone looking for a reliable and safe option.
Considering the sensitivity of the area, essential oils and fragrances just aren't needed and do not have clear benefits. That's why Wash is fragrance and essential oil free. Wash effectively cleanses the area using the naturally-occurring ingredients already found in a healthy vagina.
The vulva environment (external) can affect the vaginal environment (internal). A healthy vagina naturally produces lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide to maintain its optimum pH level. Our Wash formula includes lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide inspired by the same pH range they appear in a healthy vagina to cleanse the vulva area without compromising your vaginal health. Vaginal health is a key component of urinary health — it really is all connected!
