    The external vaginal area normally has an estimated pH of 4.7, and Summer’s Eve® products are formulated in line with this pH average. When using feminine cleansing products, it’s important that such products are pH-balanced so that they will not affect the external vaginal pH (by being too acidic or too alkaline). Summer’s Eve® products are designed to not upset the pH of the external vaginal area; upsetting the pH may affect the composition of the normal external vaginal area microbiota needed for protection against infection.

    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.

    Wiping back to front may increase your risk for vaginal infections and/or urinary tract infections because you could introduce fecal bacteria from the anus to your vagina and urethra.

    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. For application to the vagina, they are formulated for mildly acidic pH.
