This intimate wash is formulated without detergent compounds. Only 100% natural and organic Yucca is used to create a foaming and cleansing effect. The human skin's pH value is somewhere between 4.5 and 6. Ordinary soaps (in most commercially available skin care lines) have a pH of between 9 to 11 which causes the skin's pH to be more alkaline and promotes the growth of bacteria. Normal skin has a pH of about 5.5. SMN Intimate wash has a minutely more acidic pH of 4.5 thus gently reducing bacteria levels. 100% natural and organic. No pesticides. No animal testing.
