This post is for the ladies or maybe for the men who cares for their wives. What comes to your mind when you think of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)? Perhaps pain, burning sensation and emotional trauma, but not for me.
I know of someone who has died from UTI and she was only in her early 30s with a whole life ahead of her. Certainly, many UTIs are not life threatening but if the infection reaches the kidneys and bloodstream, serious illness, sepsis and sometimes death, can occur.
Many women had neglected taking care of their intimate area and I am also guilty of this. Do you know that the epidermis of our V-Area is even more delicate than our face? Hence using a normal body cleanser is not good enough as it will stripped the skin there of its much needed hydration.
V-mina range of feminine care products are made in Taiwan and are clinically proven to improve the V-area pH to the ideal 3.8-4.2 range to promote a healthy V-area. Most conventional cleansers only try to maintain the existing pH of the V-Area but do not improve it to its ideal pH range.
Conventional body cleansers may also contain traces of harsh surfactants such as SLES, SLS or ALS which will affect the long-term pH level and micro-flora of the area, thus stripping it of its natural protective layer to result in dry, irritated skin.
V-mina products are formulated with Lactobacillus Probiotics made from Yoghurt Extract to help improve the beneficial micro-flora balance, eliminate foul odour and prevent the growth of harmful micro-organisms.
1. Cleansing Mousse | $23.50
The cleansing mousse is a creamy soft mousse formulated for gentle and effective cleansing of the external V-area. The mousse is enriched with Tea Tree extract for a natural disinfectant benefit and Aloe Vera to help soften and hydrate the V-area. It is gentle enough for daily use.
The mousse has a really refreshing yoghurt scent and feels really gentle on the skin. V-mina is clinically proven to pass the sensitivity test and will not cause any irritation or stinging sensation on your skin.
I may not use the other products religiously but I would definitely use this cleansing mousse every day when showering.
2. Lightening Intimate Gel | $15.50
Simply apply adequate amount on the intimate area gently until fully absorbed and use as and when necessary. The gel feels slightly watery and dry up pretty fast on the skin without feeling sticky at all.
I rather like the idea of having a product to lighten and whiten the V-area. It reminds me of the cold gel light treatments I always have after my Brazilian sessions to help whiten and hydrate that area.
3. Cleansing Wipes (4-Pack) | $10
This non-soap and non-irritant feminine wet wipes help keeps the area clean and maintain the micro-flora balance and natural pH of the V-area. This product is also enriched with hyaluronic acid and probiotic balance for youthfulness of the V-area.
This hygienic cleansing wipes is also very essential for travel and on-the-go, especially during menstruation and after passing urine when there is no toilet paper available in some remote public toilets.
4. Deodorant Intimate Mist | $13.50
Overall, I think taking care of ourselves and maintaining the health and micro-flora of the V-area is important no matter what phase of life you may be in, be it during menstruation, pregnancy or menopausal stage.
You don’t want to suffer from a yeast infection or any kind of infection, prevention is better than cure!
