Hygiene of a woman In the care of the female body, intimate hygiene -one of the most important components. She deserves special attention, because caring for the intimate area has a direct impact on the reproductive function of the woman's body. Few people know that the protective barrier of the intimate area is subject to many stress factors. It can be weakened: pregnancy and feeding, menopause and menstruation, hormonal disorders, medication and contraceptive use, and even intimacy. Even more, the protective function of the intimate area is weakened by improper hygiene, which can not be done with soap and ordinary shower gels. The thing is that the pH of the woman's intimate area is 4.6, and the pH of tap water and soap is 7 and 9, respectively.

That's why, choosing the means for caring for intimate hygiene, it is important to choose products containing a substance with a close intimate pH zone, for example, lactic acid. In view of these requirements, NIVEA experts have created a SENSITIVE intimate hygiene gel with lactic acid, as well as an aloe vera extract that will soothe and moisturize sensitive skin.
