    Your Intimate Areas: The Importance of Care

    Whether you’re a bath-taker or you prefer the shower, after a long day of work it’s nice to wash off. The reason for washing our bodies is to prevent bacteria from building up, as well as washing off the sweat and other smells we accumulate throughout the day. Even if you’re simply sitting at home all day, chances are your body has produced a bit of its own oil. You wouldn’t go several days without washing your body, so why would you do the same to your intimates?

    Washing Your Intimate Areas

    The area around the vagina is covered with mucous membranes that – as it sounds – secrete mucus throughout the day. It’s an important function of the female anatomy, as mucus works to block bacteria and viruses, similar to how a runny nose, saliva, or tears do the same for other parts of your body. A decrease in mucus strength is recognized as a sign of weakened immunity; in many cases, it is recommended to see a doctor if you notice dryness around your intimate area.

    To keep your intimate areas from drying out or becoming infected, washing it is important. However, your intimate areas are more sensitive than other places on your body. Having the proper wash is important when it comes to taking care of yourself and preventing harm.

    What to Look for in an Intimate Wash

    When it comes to picking the right wash for your body, you need to consider the label. A clean label with all-natural ingredients are ideal, as chemicals can dry out or irritate the skin of your intimate areas. Consider Waphyto's Intimate Wash, which is designed for your most delicate areas. It was created to support pH balance and proper moisture levels by gently cleansing and purifying the skin, without the use of chemicals as seen in many washes today.

    Made with Someiyoshino Leaf Extract and more, the intimate wash is a cleanser specifically for the delicate zone. It removes dirt while creating a mild lather, which helps to cleanse the vaginal area without ridding it of its protective moisture layer. We recommend lathering well in the palm of your hand, then gently washing by wrapping the area in the lather without scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

    The Waphyto Lubricant can be used once you have finished your initial wash of the area. This lightweight gel is designed to replace lost moisture and prevent dryness, dullness and discoloration, while also nourishing the skin. This all-natural gel has a fresh texture similar to a lotion or serum without leaving a sticky residue. This is perfect for after-wash care or if you are already suffering from dryness in your intimate area.


    It’s imperative to take care of your most intimate areas, as it will prevent the likelihood of infection and keep your private parts running smoothly. The ideal wash aids in moisture generation, as well as balancing pH, without the use of harsh chemicals. The reduction of red, painful or dry skin will result in increased happiness thus increasing peace of mind.  We believe that creating peace of mind for such individuals is the true start of the SDGs. This is the sentiment we put into our brand at Waphyto.
