If you’re shopping for intimate care essentials, but are not sure what to purchase, we’re here to help! Most of us don’t learn about feminine care products in school, so it’s natural that we need a little help. Here’s your basic intimate care essentials shopping list to get you started. 

Buy: Feminine Wipes

The first must-buy feminine care essential is a feminine wipe. Why? Because your delicate tissues deserve something softer than toilet paper, especially after you’ve had a baby, are coping with hemorrhoids, are on your menstrual cycle, have a vaginal infection or are struggling with hormone changes. Feminine wipes will keep you feeling clean and comfortable by calming itches, soothing skin, and helping maintain a healthy vaginal pH. 

Unfortunately, not all feminine wipes are created equal. Many drug store feminine wipes are made with harsh chemicals and ingredients that can disrupt the delicate pH balance of the vagina and severely irritate a woman’s intimate skin. 

byDr.Poucher’s Wonderful Wipes are biodegradable, flushable and pH balanced. Made with nurturing ingredients that leave skin soft, clean and fresh, our Wonderful Wipes can be stashed in your bathroom drawer, nestled into your desk at work, or tucked into your purse. They’re the on-the-go feminine wipe and vaginal moisturizer that helps you feel your most fresh - any time, any where. 

Buy: Feminine Wash

Did you know that many feminine washes on the market contain phthalates and parabens that can be absorbed through a woman’s intimate skin? It’s disappointing to find harsh ingredients in drug store feminine washes - but luckily, there is an alternative. 

Our favorite feminine wash is the byDr.Poucher Foam Wash. Crafted with a convenient pump that helps the natural feminine wash solution feel fluffy and soft with each use, the byDr.Poucher Foam Wash is pH balanced for your most delicate skin. 

Use the Foam Wash as your only feminine wash - because it does it all! If you need a feminine wash for after childbirth, after surgery, during your menstrual cycle or for everyday use, you’ve found it! Let the gentle lather of this feminine wash soothe your intimate skin by applying directly or - if you’ve recently had vaginal surgery - indirectly by applying to your lower abdomen and letting the soft suds dilute and drift down over your vulva.

Buy: Balm for Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness can affect all women - not just women in perimenopause and menopause. If you're a woman buying intimate care essentials, don’t leave feminine dryness products off your list!
