Women are exposed to constant vaginal infections, so it is possible to find products on the market with the intention of providing a solution to problems such as itching, odor or irritation. While it is true that these products eliminate infectious bacteria, they also eliminate the good bacteria that intimate parts need, causing the vagina to fall into a vicious, endless and dangerous circle, provoking another undesirable infection.

Besides dealing with non FDA approved low quality vaginal cleansers that only cover the odor, women also suffer the pain of not having pleasant sexual activities all the time. To help women have or reconnect to a healthy sex life, Good Clean Love’s CEO, and “Sex That Works” author, Wendy Strgar, advices and introduces her organic intimacy line, that features a line of lubricants, aphrodisiac oils, and feminine hygiene products.

Strgar was trying to save her marriage when she opted to try mainstream sexual products on the market, when she suddenly started getting sick and thought that she was allergic to them. Doing research and learning more of the industry, she found out that it never was an allergic reaction, but something even worse. “A group of biophysicists started studying all the gels on the market with the intention of coming with a buffer solution for the HIV,” said the entrepreneur to Latin Times. “But what they found was these products were so heavily concentrated in petrochemicals that a single use of them made a women 13 times more likely to get bacterial vaginosis.”

Bacterial vaginosis or vaginal odor is the most common vaginal infection in women ages 15-44, is not dangerous, but it can cause disturbing symptoms and can increase your chance of getting an STD .

According to Strgar, 84% of females has or has had BV. For the same reason, with the help of one of those biophysicists, she started learning how to create a product that would be good for women.

To avoid creating the perfect environment for vaginal odor, women need to stay away from lubricants and cleansers that contain heavily concentrated petrochemical ingredients that disrupt the natural salt balance and immune protection in the vaginal area, causing genital tissue damage.

Good Clean Love is the only feminine care brand FDA and PETA approved, and the only brand mentioned in the United Nations Conference for Personal Lubricant Safety.

Products like the Balance Moisturizing Personal Wash offer you a gentle botanical intimate wash to help cleanse, refresh and eliminate odor. Unlike other feminine hygiene wash products, Balance organic vaginal wash contains no artificial fragrances and is Bio-Matched to optimal vaginal pH levels. This pH balanced soap is 100% vegan, petroleum-free, & paraben-free.

With the intention of not only helping women in their vaginal hygiene, but also empower women to stop inhibiting their sexual freedom, report their sexual dissatisfaction and demand more pleasure from their partner, Wendy created a line of personal lubricants, that infused with the spicy-sweet scents of cinnamon and vanilla, like Guilty Pleasure, will provide a long-lasting glide without all the irritating chemical additives and sticky cleanup associated with conventional lubricants.

In her book, Wendy offers the tools you need to save your sexual life, plus the many benefits of self-pleasure. She also invites women to choose when, where and with whom they wants to have a sexual encounter. 

“People are always asking me about consensual sex and why always all these girls are having sex with someone who they really don’t want,” said Strgar. “And here’s the thing, when you don’t have a language of what you want, you also don’t know what you don’t want.”

"Sex That Works" it's the guide you need to make sex better and finally get out of the shell without feeling that you are being judged for wanting to enjoy sexuality as much as men.
