General

  • A

    The external vaginal area is different than other parts of your body – its delicate, and has a different pH than other areas of the body – and so it needs a different kind of care.  After all we don’t use regular soap on our face or hand cream on our arms!  All SE cosmetic products are designed especially for intimate care – pH balanced, safe for sensitive skin, tested by gynecologists and gentle enough to use every day. We know if you give it a try you’ll feel the difference it makes! And with a range of products that are as diverse as the women who use them, there is something for everyone!

  • A

    Millions of women use Summer’s Eve® products each day to freshen up. The Cleansing Wash is perfect for your cleansing routine, whether it be shower or bath. When you don’t have time to shower or are on-the-go after moments like a hard workout, hot yoga or it’s “that time of the month”, Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Cloths offer a quick and refreshing solution.

  • A

    Short answer – yes! Just using ordinary soap can throw off the external vaginal pH balance and may cause resulting irritation. Fortunately, all Summer’s Eve® products are pH balanced, gentle and soap-free for optimal comfort. Many women tell us once they experience the gentle comfort, clean rinse and fresh experience of Summer’s Eve® washes they can’t imagine going back to regular soap and water!

  • A

    A lot of women think the vaginal area is self-cleaning, which is only partly true. Think about this metaphor – even though your oven at home is self-cleaning, you still need to clean the stove-top! The vagina itself is self-cleaning, but the vulva (the external vaginal area) is exposed to bacteria daily and should be cleansed only with products specially formulated for this sensitive area.

  • A

    The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 based on how acidic or alkaline something is – anything below 7 is acidic, while a number 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 Cleansing Washes and Cleansing Cloths are formulated especially for the external vaginal area. A healthy external vaginal area, or vulva, by definition, has an acidic pH. The acidic nature is important to your body’s natural defense and maintaining a good environment for a healthy external vaginal area. That’s why it’s so important not to use ordinary soap in your external vaginal area, since the pH of ordinary soap, can actually be very basic (high pH) and may not complement the natural pH range of your external vaginal area. Basically, you want to cleanse with a product that matches a woman’s external vaginal pH range and Summer’s Eve® Cleansing Wash does just that!
