Top V FAQs

What does “pH-balanced” mean?
The pH number measures on a scale of 0 to 14 based on how acidic or alkaline something is – anything below 7 is acidic, anything above 7 is alkaline (or basic). Pure water has a pH of 7, which is neutral. You might be surprised to learn that skin does not have a neutral pH. In fact, pH can vary based on the part of the body, and even from person to person. Summer’s Eve’s pH-balanced products are formulated to be in harmony with the areas on which they are used. For topical application to the skin, they are formulated for a slightly acidic pH (about 5-6). For application to the vagina, they are formulated for mildly acidic pH (a pH of about 3.0-3.5).
What can I do if I experience vaginal itching?
Sometimes relief is as simple as switching from bar soap to a feminine wash that is pH-balanced and especially formulated for your external vaginal area (like Summer’s Eve). However, feminine itching can be caused by a variety of factors, so you should always talk to your doctor about any itch-related issues.
Are Summer’s Eve products tested on animals?
Summer’s Eve does not test cosmetic products or their ingredients on animals, nor has it funded any such activities by third parties within the past 13 years.
Do your products expire?
