Vaginal itching could be caused by various reasons such as dryness, allergic reactions, sexually transmitted infections, diseases, or fungal and bacterial imbalances.
Intimate care is often neglected due to misconceptions. The genital area is moist and warm, making it the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, especially with vaginal discharge, perspiration, and urine build-up.
When you are shopping for intimate care products, it is important to read the labels as our intimate area is extremely sensitive and the skin is thinner than elsewhere on our body. Our recommendation would be to go for something that is 100% natural origins, avoiding petrochemicals as the intimate skin is very delicate.
Products that are 100% natural origins may cost more than those that contain petrochemicals which may irritate the skin, leading to irritations and infections.
When considering the long-term benefits, it is definitely a wiser choice to go for the all-natural option, to prevent complications in the future.
Cleansing the genital area with our Cleansing & Moisturising oil helps control bacteria growth and limit irritation rashes and infections.
Itching may also occur when the skin comes into contact with irritants, such as the chemicals in the swimming pool, or even the laundry detergent. As a general rule of thumb, anything harsh, or anything that contains alcohol, artificial fragrances, sulphates, and parabens should be avoided.
For those who use panty liners, sanitary pads, or tampons, do remember to change them regularly.
Vaginal dryness can result in many cases of itching, both external and internal. Hormonal shifts during menopause, as well as douching and certain medications, can also cause dryness which can lead to chafing and skin inflammation.
