A pH scale measures acidity in a substance on a range from 0 to 14. Below 7 is increasingly acidic while anything above 7 indicates increasing alkaline. Your skin has a normal pH between 4.0 and 5.5. However, your intimate area has an ideal pH that is less than 4.5. The normal pH balance of intimate skin is regulated by good bacteria in the vagina called lactobacilli. If your vaginal pH increases (making it less acidic), the quality or amount of lactobacilli can fall and other bacteria can multiply. This can result in vaginal infections.
Yes. FDS products are hypoallergenic (do not contain allergens). Products with allergens are known to irritate the skin.
It's recommended to use wash or spray specifically designed for your intimate area, versus a shower gel, soap, or perfume that is not. Body washes that are not specifically designed for intimate areas can bring about dryness or unhealthy bacteria.
Our products do not prevent UTIs. If you suspect you have an infection, please see a doctor.
We recommend that all FDS products be used within the first 3 years of purchase. If you have any questions about your product(s), please feel free to contact us.
Yes. We find it very important to have our products tested by professionals who understand feminine hygiene well.
Yes. All of our products are safe to use while on your period, which helps you control any natural odors you may experience.
Menstrual blood doesn't contain odor on its own, but when it mixes with your body's bacteria, an odor can develop. It's times like your period when a wash or spray can feel more crucial.
Yes. Our products are designed to neutralize odors, keeping you feeling fresh and clean throughout the day!
We recommend using our Intimate + Body Cleaning Wash as a part of your daily routine, and freshening up throughout the day with spray as needed.
No. Our products are cruelty-free and are not tested on animals.
Intimate + Body Washes
Many standard body washes aren’t formulated for vaginal health, and can irritate or unbalance pH levels.
FDS Intimate + Body Cleansing Wash is specifically designed to work with your body and not affect your pH and bacterial balance. And, it's safe for your entire body!
Yes! We encourage you to use FDS Intimate + Body Cleansing Wash as a part of your daily routine. It's gentle and designed for your intimate areas, but strong enough for the rest of your body without stripping away your skin’s natural moisture.
No. We designed our Intimate + Body Cleansing Wash to work with your entire body, and that doesn't include ingredients that will leave you feeling dry, like parabens, sulfates, or other drying soap agents.
Our wash includes Glycerin, which is a natural ingredient derived from plant oils. It acts as a moisturizer, drawing water from the air into the skin's outer layer to nourish the skin from within.
We recommend using our spray as a part of your daily routine. You can take the spray with you to freshen up throughout the day as well.
The FDS spray will help control odors but does not cleanse the vaginal area like a wash does. We recommend pairing the use of an FDS spray with our Intimate + Body Cleansing Wash.
The light fragrance will leave you feeling fresh throughout the day. If needed, feel free to take the spray with you to freshen up later in the day.
