Nature is nurture, they say.
As a brand and a business, we have made it our mission to create certified organic products that prioritize a gentler and more holistic approach to vulvovaginal health. One way in which we do this is by bringing the healing properties of plants to your fingertips.
Our products take an all natural, plant based approach to vulvovaginal health.
Our solutions can be used as a first line of defense before hitting the drugstore where we often see chemical laden and preservative rich options. While some of these options are crucial and quality of life saving solutions we do know there are many products that often do more harm than good, often exacerbating our vulvar tissue and vaginal microbiome rather than healing it.
While vulvovaginal health is not one size fits all, and prescription and traditional over the counter methods have their place in the pantry, it is our mission to provide alternative options that work with your body, not against it. We aim to soothe, comfort and of course deliver antimicrobial and antibacterial benefits that address everything from bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections and general irritation from sex clothing or exercise. All through the power of plants.
Each ingredient in every one of our products was selected to promote, maintain and help your body heal.
