Good daily hygiene is important to prevent the appearance of burning, itching, irritation, redness and burning sensation in the intimate area.
However, it is important to choose the right intimate hygiene product(s), to maintain and strengthen the physiological defense system of the female body. The main defense mechanism of this zone is the pH and the saprophytic flora.
The pH (potential of hydrogen) is a unit of measurement that determines whether a medium (or a solution) is rather acidic or alkaline.
The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14.
When the pH is 7, the medium is neutral.
If the pH is below 7, this solution is acidic, and if it is above 7, it is considered basic or alkaline.
All parts of the body have their own physiological pH: for example, the pH of the skin is around 5.5 (slightly acidic) and the pH of the vagina is around 4.5.
What role does pH play?
At puberty, the production of estrogen hormones begins. This production of estrogen will lead to the release of lactic acid, responsible for the stability of the vaginal pH, around 4.5. This pH of 4.5 promotes the development of good bacteria, fungi and other micro-organisms ("saprophyte flora"), responsible for protecting our privacy against bacteria and diseases.
The physiological vaginal pH varies throughout a woman's life:
The pH of the intimate area can also change due to:
