Why choose healthy hoohoo®?
Of all the soaps, shampoos, body washes, conditioners and moisturizers in your shower, which one do you use on your vulva? We’re guessing you probably don’t use body wash on your face. Imagine the feeling of your facial skin if you did. So why disrupt the delicate balance of your vulvovaginal ecosystem by exposing her to body cleansers and soaps that often contain harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfates, fragrance and parabens?
healthy hoohoo®'s natural feminine hygiene products gently cleanse our most precious parts, naturally promoting a healthier vaginal environment. By avoiding harsh cleansers, you can help prevent those unpleasant side effects of odor, itching and discharge.
Do's and Dont's of Washing your Vulvovaginal Area
Sometimes when we’re out of balance “down there” our knee-jerk reaction is to over cleanse. This, however, is not recommended as it further erodes what Mother Nature put down there (lactobacilli) to keep things in harmony.
healthy hoohoo® is formulated to walk this fine line. It leaves you feeling clean while its targeted pH level preserves your protective vaginal flora while a touch of aloe moisturizes. So we recommend following these guidelines below.
Wash: Vulva the outside bits
Don’t Wash: Vagina the inside bits
Wear 100% cotton underwear
Wash with water or mild pH cleanser
Sleep bare to get airflow
Change out of sweaty yoga pants
Wash from front to back
Pee after having sex
Eat yogurt / take probiotics
Limit use of thongs
Antibacterial or deodorant soaps
Scented hygiene products
Let’s talk about odor
We’re not going to beat around the bush. A woman’s body can get hot, bothered and sweaty, but that’s just part of being a living, breathing, beautiful human being. You know how you’re supposed to smell when you’re clean—more like a woman and less like a meadow. Any feminine hygiene product that tries to make you smell like jasmine, honeydew or moonbeams isn’t doing you any favors:
First, think about all of the chemicals your body is exposed to while you’re simply trying to clean yourself. Added fragrance is just one more you really don’t need.
Second, sadly, we're lead to believe the vagina is smelly and dirty but your vagina has it's own unique scent that can change on account of many factors. Go with the flow but know when something is out of whack and when to see your doc.
Third, you may be a passionate woman, but that doesn’t mean your hoohoo should smell like passion fruit or any fruit for that matter. Let your natural pheromones reel them in!
Let’s talk about suds
Where’s the thick lather? healthy hoohoo® products are created without harsh chemicals, in particular, sulfates. These are the chemicals added to make your shampoo bubbly and your face wash lather. While sulfates may play an important role with your brain (as in making you think the more lather the better), they do not belong “down there.”
