It is nice and encouraging seeing such growing awareness among women regarding intimate hygiene. Although, most of this awareness could be attributed to the increasingly aggressive marketing strategies being employed by firms that make such products. This has, however, worked in favour of women as it has helped educate them about the necessity for better intimate hygiene. This is a topic less spoken about in our culture as we live in a more reserved society.
VWash Plus works by balancing the vaginal pH. The vaginal region has an ideal pH of 4.2 to 5. During menstruation our blood discharge, which has a pH of 7.3 to 7.4, disturbs the delicate pH balance of the vaginal region leading to increase in bacterial and fugal growth. This may cause vaginal infections. VWash Plus contains Lactobacilli as well as Tea Tree oil and Sea Buckthorn oil that help maintain the vaginal pH.

Good for sensitive skin
Lathers well and has a pleasant fragrance.
Is slightly thick and does not spill easily.
Suitable for regular use
What She hates
Though the product is very good, there are three things which I personally did not like.
The price! (debatable)
The bottle cap is delicate
Product description is very small on the bottle and we find difficult to read
It should also be available in smaller sizes such a sachets so that it could be taken anywhere, especially places where hygiene may be compromised, such as at public toilets found at restaurants and malls
Overall, I must say that I am impressed with the product ingredients. However, as I said earlier that cost does seem to be a factor. Priced at Rs 140 for 100 ml it does seem costly. This could be highly debated as we do tend to spend more on something as important as a lipstick! I hope the manufacturers make the price slightly reasonable. And as I always say, there is scope for improvement. But for now, VWash seems to be a decent option for meeting a woman’s intimate hygiene needs. Take care, live well…live safe!
