Do you have advice on how to compare different wipes for my vaginal health?
First, you definitely want to start with something that is hypoallergenic and from a brand that you trust. Then, you can do something known as a patch test by using the wipe on a thinned skin area of the body (like the inner wrist). Wait a few days and if you don’t have a skin reaction and seem to tolerate well, try it on the vulva.
I’m biased, but absolutely LOVE the LOLA wipes. One of the things that I love most about them is that they don’t alter the pH of the vulva so that the microbiome doesn’t get thrown out of balance.
