While knee deep in research for DivaWash, we discovered that women in the 1950s were encouraged to use household cleaning products as vaginal cleansers. That’s right; the same products used to polish floors were also used to care for women’s feminine hygiene needs.
Although vaginal cleansers have come a long way from being the same composition as floor polish, the chemicals and perfumes of cleansers sold today continue to cause irritation, dry skin and overall discomfort for many women. They are also guilty of leaving behind harsh residues that can compromise the composition of The DivaCup as well as the health of your vagina.
To ensure the integrity of The DivaCup and our bodies, we created DivaWash, a botanically-based, all natural cleanser specifically designed to protect the silicone material of The DivaCup – and your body. The gentle formula leaves your body clean, soft and never dry and can even be used by the whole family as a daily facial cleanser and shower or bath gel.
Gentle, fragrance-free formula makes it ideal for sensitive skin.
Concentrated formula that helps to reduce our eco-footprint.
Made of 100% plant-based ingredients.
Manufactured with no animal testing or animal ingredients.
Safe for your body with no added parabens, sulfates or petrochemicals.
Many women do not realize that the feminine hygiene products they use are the culprits of their vaginal discomfort. The vagina is self-cleansing and continually produces fluid that “flushes” the vagina. When a tampon is inserted, its composition of rayon and cotton absorbs your vagina’s protective fluid, drying out and disrupting its normal pH levels.
When used as directed, The DivaCup is a more sanitary feminine hygiene solution to tampons or pads. Latex-free, plastic-free, BPA-free, odor-free and free of colors and dyes, The DivaCup is made from healthcare grade non-absorbent silicone, which means it will not dry out or disrupt the natural environment of your vagina.
Just like your vagina needs regular care, so too does your DivaCup. By following our care and cleaning tips in our User Guide and the tips below you can ensure a pleasant DivaCup experience.
