When it comes to improving our self-care routines, we often focus on upgrading our body care and facial products. It’s no secret that improving the quality of your beauty products and making the switch to green and clean solutions is beneficial for a range of reasons, such as eliminating unnecessary toxins from your blood stream, leveraging the benefits of naturally sourced ingredients and being kinder to our animal friends and planet.
But while focusing on the body and face is great, our vaginas also benefit from some levelled up self care solutions. The vagina care industry is on the up and up and why shouldn’t it be? As the source of our power and femininity, it’s time to treat our vaginas with the love they deserve.
Here are a few of our favourite vagina self-care products from Canadian companies:
