5 Myths About Your V, Busted

We straighten out the most common misconceptions about your lady bits.

Myth#1: You only need water and bath soap to keep your V clean.

Although it's more convenient to use only one product for your whole body, it’s important to realize that soap can be too harsh for your vagina. Even if your favorite soap is labeled as a “mild” product, it probably isn’t mild enough for your intimate area. The good bacteria that protect you from irritation may be getting killed off by your soap, which leaves you vulnerable to infection. Wisen up, and start using a mild cleanser specifically formulated for your V.

Myth #2: Feminine washes cause infections like UTI.

Women have shorter urethras than men do, which increases their risk of contracting urinary tract infections. These infections are mainly caused by bacteria—such as E. coli—that invade the urethra, and can eventually spread to the bladder and kidneys. The most common way for bacteria to transfer to your urethra is by wiping from back to front after using the bathroom. Another cause of UTI is infrequent urination, so make sure you go to the bathroom no matter how busy you are—never hold it in!

Myth #3: You can’t use feminine wash on a daily basis.

It really comes down to choosing the right feminine wash. Lactacyd is made with milk-based ingredients, making it mild and gentle enough for your V. It’s also dermatologically tested, so you know that it’s safe for daily use.

Myth #4: Feminine washes make you dry down there.

Your V needs a good dose of moisture to stay supple, just like your lips and skin do. Lactacyd's natural milk extracts refresh your vaginal area and keep it soft and moist, so it looks and feels its best!

Myth #5: Your V doesn’t need special care.

It may be true that your V can clean itself—some even say that it’s cleaner than your mouth—but you still need that boost of protection to ensure that it's healthy. A gentle feminine wash like Lactacyd keeps your intimate area clean and fresh all day, so you don’t have to worry about feeling gross down there and you can just be your fun, fearless self!

Your V is just as important and integral to your health as any other part of your body. Give your intimate area the care it deserves with a partner that serves up its daily dose of much-needed freshness and comfort. Forget the myths, and remember this: Every day is your best V-day with Lactacyd All Day Care!
