Every woman has experienced itchiness in the vaginal area at least once in her life. The problem is predominantly caused by hormonal changes in the woman’s body as is common during menstruation.
Although the onset of menopause has also been linked to itchiness in the vaginal area, most of the cases occur shortly before, during or shortly after a woman gets her period.
The following skincare products are very effective in getting rid of vaginal itchiness and dryness. They are mild on the skin and very nourishing. Also, they are free of harmful substances that you want to avoid in the vaginal area…
1. Bee Friendly Vaginal Moisturizer
Bee pollen and beeswax are organic substances that are slowly gaining clout for being very good for the skin (1). For that reason, you can trust that this organic vaginal moisturizer will do just more than get rid of the persistent itchiness.
The organic beeswax extract works in favor of your skin, making it more supple, soft and elastic. The formulation is full of skin nourishing nutrients including organic olive oil which is a source of vitamin A and E. The vaginal moisturizer uses its anti-inflammatory properties to quell any itchiness in the vaginal area.
It also has antimicrobial properties, which means it can also get rid of unwanted bacteria. It is free of chemicals including harmful parabens and dyes and offers instant soothing relief when applied.
The Bee Friendly Moisturizer has worked fairly well for the majority of women although you might need to find something soft to apply it with. It is non-greasy and very emollient so you can rest assured that it is an efficient moisturizer.
2. Vmagic Intimate Skin Cream
This is a fairly popular organic cream that corrects vaginal dryness, thinning vulva tissue and persistent itchiness caused by hormonal imbalance. The 2-ounce jar might seem a bit small considering the price tag. But based on the reviews, it is a worthy purchase to make.
Then formulation of this vaginal cream contains an active moisturizer that combats vaginal dryness and rejuvenates thinning skin. For women who are prone to yeast infections, this cream also contains active probiotics that only allow the growth of the useful bacteria while suppressing the growth of harmful bacteria. Aside from its highly efficient anti-inflammatory effects, the vaginal cream doesn’t contain any fragrances, dyes or synthetic preservatives.
Worth mentioning, however, is that the cream might elicit allergic reactions in some people, so it is prudent to check with your doctor before using it. Also, the cream is very greasy and can easily get onto your undergarments, so wearing a liner would be advisable. All in all, the cream is very soothing, tackles the itchiness effectively and also provides instant relief.
3. Organic Glide Personal Lubricant
You shouldn’t use pure glycerin on the sensitive skin of your vagina for a number of reasons. Not only will it block the pores and cause more problems, most of the synthetic types of glycerin in the market today cause more harm than good to the skin (2).
Organic Glide tackles the problem of dry, itchy skin by using its glycerin-free formulation. Other than being highly effective, you will save yourself from the unpleasant side effects that result from using lubricants that contain the harmful synthetic glycerin. Made of 100 % organic ingredients, Organic Glide has plenty of nutrients in its probiotic formulation. It can also be used to quell UTIs.
The cream is soothing even in small doses, hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. It is oil based, however, and as such, it can be really greasy. This may cause staining on your undergarments and beddings.
4. Bloom Krans Vaginal Moisturizer
If you’re skeptical about the potency of these vaginal creams, this is a nice starting point since you get a 30-day trial period. The Bloom Krans Vulva Harmony Vaginal Moisturizer has very fast-acting anti-inflammatory effects. It is also probiotic and can be used to prevent yeast infections and other bacterial infections in the vagina.
The cream is estrogen-free and does not contain any harmful dyes or chemicals such as parabens. It comes highly recommended by women who claim that its skin rejuvenating properties are surreal. You should, however, expect oily residue on your clothes and sheets, since the oil-based formulation is a greasier than is acceptable.
5. Coconut Oil
This list would not have been complete without this entry: coconut oil. Already, we have seen the benefits of coconut oil on the skin, specifically its skin-rejuvenating and moisturizing capabilities (3).
It’s important that you choose pure organic coconut oil with no chemical additives and no harmful preservatives that may elicit allergic reactions.
Coconut oil is without a doubt the best natural skin moisturizer, and it will do wonders for the dry vaginal skin. It is mild on the skin and instantly soothing, not to mention it has a pleasant coconut scent. What’s more, coconut oil is not greasy and will not leave any residue.
I use coconut oil all the time! I often use Nutiva, but there are many other high quality brands. Check out this post to help you choose coconut oil. Some are cut with other oils, or are cosmetically altered with potentially toxic chemicals…
You can also take it internally for additional benefits. Start with 1 teaspoon per day and gradually increase to 2 tablespoons. Read this post about the best antifungal foods. You’ll learn that coconut oil is a very potent candida killer!
While this list is by no means conclusive, these natural products will go a long way in ensuring that your vaginal itchiness is eradicated completely. Your skin needs to be well-nourished; this is why it’s paramount to choose the right products, especially in the vaginal area.
