Social media users have criticized Kourtney Kardashian's Poosh website after posting a feature on non-toxic vaginal washes.
Frustrated Twitter users called the lifestyle site because they referred to the vagina as & # 39; je yoni & # 39; and & # 39; your hoo-ha & # 39; – with many the feeling that the phrasing was condescending to women. Others suggested that the term & # 39; vulva & # 39; would be more appropriate.
Some also noted that the vagina as a self-cleaning organ does not need to use other products to support the cleaning process.
Experts have advised that it is & # 39; absolutely necessary & # 39; is to be careful when using any product on your vagina, as they may disrupt the delicate PH balance and increase the risk of infection.
The Poosh website of Kourtney Kardashian came under fire after launching a list of the five best hygienic car washes
Twitter users raged when the site named the vagina as a & # 39; yoni & # 39; and & # 39; hoo-ha & # 39; with the feeling that the term was condescending to women
Kourtney, 40, launched Poosh in April of this year in an effort to educate, motivate, create and manage a modern lifestyle that everyone can achieve & # 39 ;.
Sharing the article on Twitter, Poosh wrote: & # 39; Keep your yoni healthy with these non-toxic feminine washes that won't harm your hoo-ha. & # 39;
The introduction to the list is: & # 39; Friendly reminder that traditional car washes and soap are full of chemicals that seep into your skin, and if you use them … down there, it can kill good bacteria that keep your vagina healthy. & # 39;
It continued: & # 39; Although the vagina is a self-cleaning machine, some extra love for the external areas is sometimes needed. Each wash ensures that you continue to feel fresh without irritation (usually caused by artificial scents and ingredients that are difficult to pronounce). & # 39;
Social media users were quickly able to share their opinion about the list, and many were angry that the website was unable to use the correct terminology for the female genitalia.
Blogger Caroline Hirons wrote: & # 39; And while I'm here, how exactly do you push a line if you can't get yourself to & # 39; To say VULVA & # 39; F *** sake. F **** g people do my good. (Sic) & # 39;
Blogger Caroline Hirons called that the site should have used the term vulva instead of & # 39; yoni & # 39; or & # 39; hoo-ha & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; Yoni and hoo-ha? Would like to meet the advertising team that decided your target market was 5 year olds … (sic) & # 39;
A third wrote: & # 39; Where would you say my yoni and hoo-ha are in relation to my vagina, gang (sic) & # 39;
A blogger corrected the list by simply writing: & # 39; ** v a g i n a (sic) & # 39;
Another culprit stated: & # 39; LMAO "hoo-ha" is not mysterious, it's childish (sic) "
Write later: & # 39; And there is nothing at all & # 39; disrespectful & # 39; about using the right words (sic) & # 39;
Other bloggers went to social media to rave about the fact that the site could not use the correct terminology for the female genitalia
Some users also claimed that the products are not needed because the vagina cleans itself in your body with natural secretions.
One said: & # 39; We are adults, you can just say VAGINA without getting panicked. And my VAGINA does great to stay healthy without "female washes" thank you very much. (Sic) & # 39;
Another raged: & # 39; vagina & # 39; s cleansing itself, that's why we get fired … why should I pay ten dollars for vulva perfume (sic) & # 39;
A third said: & # 39; It's called a vagina. Just use the word. These products are also unnecessary and dangerous. (Sic) & # 39;
London Gynecology, a private gynecology clinic in the capital, suggested that the best way to wash your vagina is & # 39;once a day with water and avoid perfumes, dyes, preservatives and harsh chemicals. & # 39;
& # 39; Regarding washing the genital area, I ideally recommend plain water or perfume-free soap and then dry it with a soft cloth or tissue.
Some users found the list unnecessary and the products unnecessary because the vagina is a self-cleaning organ
The article also states that it can give your hoo-ha a gift with a delicate, non-toxic rinse that will help maintain a healthy vaginal pH balance.
However, experts have argued that the use of a product on your vagina can actually disrupt the delicate PH balance of your vagina.
Cosmetic doctor and intimate doctor Shirin Lakhani insisted that it is absolutely necessary to be careful & # 39; when using feminine hygiene products.
The expert warned that any product used on your vagina can disrupt the pH level and increase the risk of infection.
She told Femail: "The growing trend towards more extreme pubic care is exposing the labia more – something that has helped more women become aware of the appearance of their vulva.
This site suggested that their products could help maintain a healthy vaginal pH balance, but Dr. Shirin Lakhani says that any product used on your vagina can disrupt the pH level
& # 39; As with any beauty product that has contact with a vagina, it is imperative to be careful.
"The vagina is a self-cleaning organ and nothing needs to be done to help with the cleaning process.
& # 39; Too much cleaning or showering with scented products, whether they claim to be non-toxic or not, can upset the delicate balance that helps maintain health.
& # 39; If the pH rises and becomes less acidic, the vagina may be susceptible to infections, including bacterial vaginosis or thrush. & # 39;
Zoë Dunn, head of sales and marketing at YES, one of the products on the website, explained that the website could easily have confused their terminology and was not clear enough about distinguishing the vagina from the vulva.
Zoë Dunn, head of sales and marketing at YES, says online users are often not clear enough about distinguishing the vagina from the vulva
She said: & # 39; A common mistake that bloggers, social media users and indeed many people make is not to distinguish between the vulva and the vagina.
Ja Yes, the vagina is self-cleaning, the vulva – also known as the female external sexual organs – does not clean in the same way.
Vooral Especially after a long day, exercising, during a period etc. A gentle cleaning of this area can be beneficial.
& # 39; For bloggers and influencers, we say it's important to do your research thoroughly and not advise women to use products that can damage or infect the vagina. & # 39;
