ABOUT US

Momotaro is a pH balanced vaginal care line that believes that when it comes to vaginal wellness:

Clean is an adjective, not a verb.

Inspired by our own experiences, we've created products by selecting certified organic ingredients that have been shown to clinically address bacteria and fungal infections (like berberine and tea tree). We aim to safely support the vagina's natural ability to relieve symptoms associated with uncomfortable and unexpected issues like infection and itching stemming from yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, pH imbalance, and general irritation from sex, clothing, and exercise — without disturbing friendly bacteria.

The vagina is complex; we keep it simple.

The things we say...

We aim to be a part of the positive and compassionate conversation with our community about how gentler, systemically more effective, natural products can support our ability to address physiological and quality of life issues associated with various types of vaginal issues.

and how we say them.

We compassionately support the body's natural ability to resolve physiological issues while supporting the psychological challenges that accompany them. By using anatomical words to describe body parts (never nicknames or vague terms like “your special area,” or “you know where”),

How we got started

Inspired by our own experiences, we set out to create a product that could break the recurrent cycles of Bacterial Vaginosis. When we started research, we realized that many others had similar experiences. We set out to create an inclusive and discreet product that didn't leave you feeling gross. Thus our salve was born, and we've been adding new products to our family ever since.

What's in a name?

Lindsay's paternal grandmother is of asian descent and has her own personal connection with the naming and etymology of Momotaro Apotheca. Specifically the word “momo” is peach in Japanese and and “taro” is a root crop from the Pacific Islands, however these words have their own personal colloquial connotation. Furthermore Momotaro is an important character from Japanese Folklore - though that story has no connection to our brand.
