Genital pelvic health regulation has become the new norm and there remains a growing public concern and awareness regarding ingredients for vaginal products. These changes have empowered women to be more selective in the products they choose as part of their vaginal and health care regimes. Sexual intimacy, vaginal health and physical connectedness are many positive aspects of sexual contact and of vital importance for the humanistic bonds with a partner. Ingredients have moved to the forefront of importance. Some pelvic care products are marketed as “natural” yet often contain harsh chemical additives, warming compounds, bactericides or spermicides that can have the detrimental and potentially damaging effects on the delicate vaginal lining.
Parabens are common preservatives added to cosmetics and vaginal products. Some experts feel that parabens may indeed demonstrate weak estrogenic effects. Scientific data is emerging concerning parabens and their activity as endocrine or hormone disruptors. While parabens are far less biologically active than estrogen or xeno-estrogens, many women prefer to avoid paraben containing products. Some publications have demonstrated five different types of parabens found in women with breast cancers. Parabens in high concentrations in the blood stream of men may be linked to lowered or reduced sperm counts.
Despite the emerging evidence that parabens may be linked to medical concerns, the American Cancer Society (ACS) issued the formalized statement which indicated that there was insufficient scientific evidence to support that cosmetics increase cancer risk and that larger well-designed studies were needed. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration said that the debate is ongoing. Currently they do not have sufficient information showing that parabens, as they are used in cosmetics, have any detrimental effect on human health.
In our current day, plastics and parabens are almost unavoidable and paraben exposure even to small amounts is almost unescapable. While the health risks may be minimal, most women prefer to use vaginal products that do not contain them. A label wise female often opts for pure vaginal products that do not contain parabens.
Many women are disparaged for thinking about sex, and quality, safe and effective intimacy products are not easily accessible for them. Women are becoming more empowered by methodically reading labels Not all vaginal products or creams are created equal.
