How about follow none of this advice.
Your vagina is naturally fresh, anyone who says otherwise is representing the patriarchy.
Feminine washes are a scam.
I'm the expert.
The end.

I use CeraVe facial cleanser for dry skin on my vulva. It is about $5 and is great. None of these products on @pooshdotcom will do anything health wise except lighten your wallet and maybe make you irritated. Also, lavender is an endocrine disruptor. Why is that "non toxic?"

I am so sick of genital tract profiteering.
It is all based on the patriarchal ideal that a vagina and vulva are dirty and need to be prepped for men.
Calling it "natural" changes nothing except the price. The destructive messaging is the same.

I have 4 chapters on basic vulvar/vaginal care in The Vagina Bible. One of the reasons I needed SO MANY is the faux feminism of celebrities gritting off of medical misinformation and using the patriarchy’s playbook to sell crap.  https://drjengunter.com/social-media/ 

Also, I make no money from CeraVe. I have just done the research and a cleanser is better than soap and I like their product. I hate paying for unnecessary products, especially those that support the patriarchy.

Using baby names to describe the vulva and vagina tells me that @pooshdotcom are aiming for the pre teen, teen and young adult market. Their vaginas and vulvas are terrific, that is the only message they need to hear!

I always come back to this:
My Vagina is Terrific, Your Opinion about it is not.
