Your daily feminine protection.


Dr. Jennifer Kasirsky, Specialist Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Welcare Hospital Dubai, discusses the causes of vulvovaginal infections and how we can avoid them with the right feminine cleanser.


What are the main causes of vulvovaginal infections?


Vulvovaginal infections are common in this region. They are generally caused by yeast or Candida, bacterial vaginosis or other opportunistic bacteria. Hot and humid environments as well as the use of synthetic underwear represent some risk factors which may lead to infection.


What are your


recommendations in case of vulvovaginal symptoms?


If symptoms arise, such as irritation or bad odors, it is important to first visit your gynaecologist who will be able to diagnose and prescribe the appropriate treatment. In addition to the treatment, the doctor could also recommend the use of a feminine hygiene product.


How can a feminine hygiene cleanser prevent vulvovaginal infections?


Proper feminine hygiene refers to the maintenance of a clean and balanced feminine area. But feminine hygiene does not mean internal hygiene! Washing inside the vagina, or douching, could kill the normal


bacteria and expose women to infection. The usage of an external cleanser, specially formulated to keep the normal pH balance, helps women to strengthen their natural defense against harmful bacteria and also to prevent infections.


Why is a pH-balanced feminine cleanser an important component of proper feminine hygiene?


Each part of your body has a different pH level and requires different cleansing products. Your feminine area is naturally protected by a pH that is different from your body’s skin. Soaps or shower gels have a high pH level. Due to their harsh ingredients, they leave your feminine area’s pH level unbalanced which can cause a proliferation of bacteria. A slightly acidic feminine cleanser is specially formulated to preserve a naturally protective environment, every day.


Lactacyd works in harmony with your feminine area’s natural pH.


Formulated from natural ingredients, Lactacyd, with its delicate fragrance, helps you maintain a fresh, comfortable and confident feeling while providing you with a natural defense against irritation, tenderness and infections.
