What to avoid?
A rule-of-thumb-adviceAvoid any intrusion into the vaginal vestibule for any purpose other than keeping it clean with water fit for intimate hygiene and a vestibular and clitoral cleanser of certified quality; remember that the most sensitive place in the female body requires safe clothing and proper ventilation.
Every personal care product on the market must list the ingredients on the label. Non-existent law enforcement or weak law enforcement make this legal requirement massively violated. Hiding dangerous ingredients, deceiving consumers and other tricks of the trade are a very common practice. This is why even slight, mild signs and/or symptoms of adverse cosmetic reactions call attention to possible harmful effects of noxious ingredients.Specific Advice on other than triclosan and triclocarban harmful ingredients found in soaps
FDA, U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 09/02/2016When you buy soaps and body washes, do you reach for products labeled “antibacterial” hoping they’ll keep your family safer? Do you think those products will lower your risk of getting sick, spreading germs or being infected?
" Antibacterial Soap? You Can Skip It -- Use Plain Soap and Water
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there isn’t enough science to show that over-the-counter (OTC) antibacterial soaps are better at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water. To date, the benefits of using antibacterial hand soap haven’t been proven. In addition, the wide use of these products over a long time has raised the question of potential negative effects on your health.
After studying the issue, including reviewing available literature and hosting public meetings, in 2013 the FDA issued a proposed rule requiring safety and efficacy data from manufacturers, consumers, and others if they wanted to continue marketing antibacterial products containing those ingredients, but very little information has been provided. That’s why the FDA is issuing a final rule under which OTC consumer antiseptic wash products (including liquid, foam, gel hand soaps, bar soaps, and body washes) containing the majority of the antibacterial active ingredients—including triclosan and triclocarban—will no longer be able to be marketed."
