Which category can we help with?


  • What is intimate skincare?

    When it comes to our skin, we all use different products for different parts of our bodies. Just like shampoo could irritate your face and body lotion may leave your hair feeling less than perfect, using the wrong products on your intimate vulval skin – that protects your vagina – may result in itching or irritation. That's where intimate skincare can help.

    The femfresh range is specifically designed to love your bits to bits. It's a pH-balanced collection with formulas designed to protect your vagina's natural environment, avoid irritation and leave you feeling pHAB!

  • Is femfresh tested by gynaecologists?

    Yes. All femfresh products are dermatologically and gynaecologically tested by experts. They're also hypoallergenic, soap free and alcohol free.


  • Is femfresh suitable for cleaning inside my vagina?

    femfresh intimate washes should never be used to cleanse the inside of your vagina, which is also known as douching.

    Douching is a method of spraying water or specific douche formulas upward inside the vagina to wash and flush out secretions. There is much discussion around vaginal douching amongst health experts and we recommend that you discuss your specific health needs with your doctor.

  • How can I care for my bikini line post-shaving?
