There’s a significant difference between the overall health of a woman who chooses to use the “popular” feminine washes on the local drug store isle vs. a woman who chooses organic feminine hygiene products such as what you can find here at The Honey Pot Co. Some of the consequences of using chemically-laden feminine care products include itching, irritation, recurring infections, heavy bleeding, and the onset of cervical abnormalities.
There are hundreds of products available to women that advertise such things as “odor blocking,” meaning the wash is packed with artificial perfume scents designed to mask odor rather than use ingredients that keep the vagina healthy enough to stop or prevent unnatural odors. You will also notice that most popular feminine wash products do not publish their ingredient decks on their website. If you want to know what's in their products, you must hunt them down and take the time to research the ingredients. Most manufacturers bank on the fact that consumers will not actually take the time to research so many ingredients that are hardly recognizable or difficult to pronounce. They also rely on the fact that most consumers assume that if it's on the shelf, it's safe to use which couldn't be further from the truth.
Also beware of marketing-savvy words that aim to nab consumer attention under a false concept. After further research, an article about the potential health hazards that may come with using feminine care products caught our eye. Women’s Voices for the Earth shared that, in regards to feminine wash, “Hazardous ingredients may include unknown fragrance chemicals, parabens, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, DMDM Hydantoin, D&C Red No.33, Ext D&C Violet #2, and FD&C Yellow #5. Exposure concerns include endocrine disruption, allergic rash, and asthma.” Those long scientific words are not a good sign that what you are using is healthy and natural.
It should be simple to understand what you are using on your body. Everything you use on your exoskeleton seeps into your cells and affects the way your body operates. The Honey Pot Co. cares about women's intimate health, which is why we use all-natural ingredients such as lavender water (which provides a lovely natural scent among other healing properties), grapefruit seed extract, and coconut oil.
The best part of using The Honey Pot Co's organic feminine hygiene products is that a woman’s vagina and body will stay healthier than if she were using chemically-enhanced cleansers that weren't created with long-term health and sustainability in mind.
