Unlike what Gwyneth Paltrow has alluded to, vaginas aren’t meant to smell like a geranium, citrusy bergamot and cedar blend. Moreover, you probably already know that any “cleaning” product that involves inserting something could mess with your pH balance and cause more issues than it solves (we’re talking yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, etc.) That said, while the vagina is a self-cleaning organ, there’s no denying that, in particular when we sweat, there can be some funky odors. Sure, these odors are natural, but that doesn’t mean we all want to embrace them.
So, while wipes and washes aren’t necessary, they’re a welcome addition to many of our beauty routines.
