So, I do get this question a lot, even in the course of my work as well as from friends – what is the best feminine wash on the market these days…?
For me, it’s pretty straightforward. Something that keeps me fresh and clean all day long, and keeps me confident when I am around people even at the end of a long day.
Also being a sports woman, being comfortable during hectic aerobic activities, as well as during the time of month, is key for me when picking the right feminine wash. When a woman has her period and is exercising AS WELL (!) this becomes even more crucial! The vaginal pH level goes up because blood is highly alkaline in nature, exposing that area to higher risk of infection. Normal vaginal pH is 3.8-4.2, which is more on the acidic level, but this is thrown out of whack during the time of month. Throw in the discomfort of sweating in your gym wear or running shorts, and you have the recipe for catastrophe if you do not take care of your intimate parts well. Imagine the germs just going to town in your knickers (yikes! I’d rather not!)
And so far, having used BETADINE® Daily Feminine Wash Foam now for several weeks, I have to say that it meets all the criteria I look for in a good feminine wash. Unlike other feminine wash brands which commonly use lactic acid, BETADINE® Daily Feminine Wash is gentle on the private areas of a woman. It supports the intimate area’s natural pH balance as it helps to maintain a healthy environment for the growth of beneficial flora that protects against feminine discomforts. It is in my opinion a comprehensive feminine solution for women with active lifestyles.
Not only that, but unique to the category of feminine wash products, the BETADINE® Daily Feminine Wash Foam has a pump-action foam format that is designed to bring convenience to women. In addition to its easy usage, the pump saves the step of having to lather resulting with a foam format that is luxurious and gentle to apply.. I love the scent and the soft billowy foam that glides as soft as silk! OO-la-la.. super comfortable and incredibly feminine.. make me feel all 100% woman, with the confidence & poise to boot!
Knowing that natural ingredients are essential in making women feel confident and comfortable, BETADINE® Daily Feminine Wash Foam and BETADINE® Daily Feminine Liquid Wash promote an optimum environment for the growth of beneficial flora. Formulated with Tri-Care™, which features Immortelle, SyriCalm™, and Deoplex®, with prebiotics, these solutions maintain a healthy environment for the intimate area to support a natural pH balance .
Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum extract) has a long-standing history of being used for its medicinal properties. It also comes with a range of antimicrobial properties and is a natural antioxidant that repairs free radical damage and stimulates cellular regeneration. Immortelle serves as a natural anti-oxidant that helps improve skin’s natural moisture .
SyriCalm™ (Phragmites communis extract) is a natural active ingredient that soothes the skin and reduces skin redness and irritation. SyriCalm™ also reduces erythema, relieves itchiness, protects and improves recovery of the skin’s barrier function .
Deoplex® (Sacharromyces extract) is a natural extract that delivers effective odour neutralization. Deoplex® also contains enzymes that provide bioconversion of a wide range of malodorous substances.
To fortify the Tri-Care™ formula, the BETADINE® Daily Feminine Wash consists of the prebiotic known as Biolin, which helps promote the growth of beneficial flora and protects the intimate area. Prebiotics are ingredients that promote growth for these friendly organisms and can be found in honey, bananas, garlic, onions and whole grains, amongst others. Biolin provides the natural nourishment for healthy flora to thrive and stimulate their growth. On top of maintaining optimal pH balance, Biolin supports and restores the immune function and prevents unfriendly organisms from developing.
All in all, it’s the only foam application in Malaysia at the moment, conveniently packaged and delicious in fragrance. Folks ask me why I use it, and I say.. why not? 🙂
