Reduce Your Exposure

  • Look for brands that disclose all ingredients, including what’s in fragrance.
  • Reduce your use of feminine care products.
  • Eliminate use of products that may be unnecessary to a healthy vagina.
  • Choose unscented products where available (particularly tampons and pads).
  • Choose chlorine-free bleached or unbleached cotton tampons and pads.
  • If you are having allergic symptoms, switch brands! When you do switch – call the company’s 1-800 customer service to tell them why!
