FAQ - Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion

If you have any other questions, send us an e-mail.

Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion is intended for daily use for intimate hygiene and cannot replace drug therapy. If you have a yeast infection, please consult your doctor or pharmacist. Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion can continuously be used to cleanse the external genital area – like a shower gel – during treatment for a yeast infection.

Yes. Men also enjoy its pleasant freshness and gentle cleansing.

Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion is generally very well tolerated. However, there is no guarantee against the possibility of adverse reactions in isolated cases. In order to determine whether you can tolerate Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion, you must test the product first. Naturally, you should not use the product if you have a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Compare the ingredients of Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion with your list of known allergies.

Use like a shower gel or wash lotion:

Rinse the area first, then apply a peanut-sized amount of Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion directly into your hand, or onto a damp flannel or disposable washcloth and apply to the external vaginal area. Then rinse off.

If using cotton flannels, these should be washed regularly in hot water (60° C). In case of the presence of vaginal infection, use the cotton flannel once only and then wash before using again.

No. We advise against vaginal douching, as it can disturb the vaginal flora and thus weaken the body’s natural defences against infection. Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion is intended for external use only.

No. It is a wash lotion which must always be rinsed off after it is applied.

Yes. It is a mild and very well tolerated wash lotion.

No. Whilst studies show that the pH of the skin (in the external intimate area as well) is about 5 in younger women and increases with age, a higher pH value reduces the skin's ability to fight bacteria. Therefore, skin cleansing and skin care products (also for the external intimate area) – for younger and for older individuals – should have a pH of around 5 (not higher) to prevent alkalising the skin and to maintain its natural acid mantle.

There are many different causes for recurrent vaginal yeast infections. Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion alone cannot prevent yeast infections. But since one of the possible factors that contribute towards vaginal yeast infections is insufficient intimate hygiene, the regular use of Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion can support your body’s natural defences. Many users report that they develop yeast infections less frequently since using Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion.
