Yoni Soap: A Guide to Safe Personal Hygiene

With the tremendous availability of knowledge, information, and technology, you'd think that answers to simple questions like general hygiene, anatomy, and biological processes would be widely available and easily accessible to half of the world.

Even in 2021, many women are still unfamiliar with their own anatomy and physiology, which has resulted in a great deal of misinformation and sometimes hazardous behaviors. Misinformation has been used by societal conventions, global and social media, and multimillion-dollar marketing campaigns, which have reinforced erroneous and misleading standards about women and their bodies. One of the most controversial topics searched online is "yoni soaps."

What exactly is ‘Yoni Soap’?

Yoni refers to female sexual organs such as the vagina, vulva, or uterus in modern translations. The vagina, labia, vulva, and clitoris are the lady parts termed as yoni. These are the portions of the body that one should wash because they have the same qualities as the rest of the skin. Because women's yonis are sacred, one must be cautious of what comes in contact with them. 

Menstrual cycles, sexual intercourse, hygiene, workouts, diets, medicines, clothing styles, pregnancy, and other factors can all affect a yoni. Although the yoni (or vagina) can successfully self-clean, yoni soap is about comprehensive natural support and total vaginal health, not necessarily meant for cleaning something dirty in the vaginal area. 

 Yoni soap is a lovely method to self-pamper regularly, as it is typically made up completely of natural herbal elements designed to prevent and eliminate common diseases.

Benefits of using Yoni Soap

  1. Keeps it feeling fresh all-day

Yoni bars are detoxifying, aiding in the removal of pollutants from sensitive areas. The benefit of feeling incredibly fresh is that it allows one to tap into feminine energy, while also being emotionally relaxing. 

  1. Helps stimulate vaginal wellness

Many women have regular vaginal itching as a result of dry skin, hair renewal, friction, or infection susceptibility. Yoni soaps help detoxify the womb and assist in the release of toxins from the body.

  1. Reduces menstrual cramps

Yoni bars help treat dryness or pain during intercourse, as well as common symptoms of menopause. Vaginal dryness is a typical side effect of stress, hormone imbalances, and can even be a natural part of the aging process. 

  1. Helps soothe razor bumps/burns

Razor burn can occur when shaving the bikini area, causing skin irritation and pain. Yoni bar helps to maintain a healthy vaginal pH while also healing and soothing the sensitive region which may also be related to vaginal rip, episiotomy, or C-section scar heal. 

  1. Balances the pH

The ideal pH of the vagina should be between 3.8 and 4.5 for a healthy level of vaginal acidity. If the vagina is not acidic enough owing to the shortage of lactobacilli, then fungi and “bad” bacteria are enabled to reproduce more than they possibly would. Yoni soaps have formulations that are pH-balanced and hypoallergenic. 

  1. Treats infections

Many yoni soaps contain antibacterial ingredients and other bioactive compounds which work to deter undesirable bacteria, making them particularly useful against recurring yeast infections and urinary infections.

  1. Increases the amount of moisture in the body

An increase in the level of moisture is one of the primary benefits of yoni soap, which is why they are composed of moisturizers and emollients that keep the skin hydrated and nourished.

  1. Prevents ingrown hair

Regular application of a yoni soap enriched with essential oils with antibacterial and relaxing anti-inflammatory characteristics can function as both treatment and preventative for people prone to troublesome ingrown hairs. It prevents the hair shaft from becoming too thick and becoming caught in the hair follicles.

  1. Relieves pain and inflammation

Yoni soaps work to improve cell turnover, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation to treat discomfort, irritation, or general inflammation. The ingredients are antibacterial and antiseptic herbs that are soothing and gentle to the vaginal skin. 

 Things to keep in mind while using Yoni Soap

  • Always wash hands thoroughly before using the soap, and keep the bar clean and dry after each use to avoid the spread of mould and bacteria! 
  • Don’t use it internally.  Yoni soap is intended for use on the vagina (including the labia and clitoris), but it should not be applied to the vaginal canal.
  • Try not to get any soap inside the vagina itself, to avoid drying and irritating and can cause an infection by disrupting the yoni's delicate pH balance. 

Directions for use

  • During a shower or bath, apply yoni soap to the exterior intimate region (around the vagina) using your hand or a washcloth.
  • Clean the folds surrounding the clitoris and spread the outer labia. For 1-2 minutes, gently massage the area.
  • Rinse the area with water and pat it dry.
