Preservatives and fragrances

The use of preservative agents and fragrances in intimate care products cannot always be avoided, as the products must last and have a pleasant smell.

Still, it is possible to minimise contact with these substances by avoiding premoistened wipes and intimate sprays. Because these products are not rinsed off and so remain on the skin after they are applied, they may promote the development of allergies. If you have a known allergy to particular fragrance and preservative agents, you should read the ingredient list of intimate care products very carefully.
