Inquiring Minds Want to Know…”What Should a Woman’s Proper pH Be?”

 ssl_phlevel1 

As you can see, it depends what stage of life you are in as to the proper pH your sweet spot should have.  Now I don’t need to use a pH testing strip to see if I am off as there are other tell tale signs, but you may need to buy some if you want to know how to correct it.  If you are in the 6 range you are heading toward too akaline and if you are in the 2-3 range you are leaning toward being too acidic.  On a scale of 1-14 we have determined the best range to be between 4-5 to be less cause for irritation and less of a breeding ground for unwanted yeast and bacteria.

Love it when people find our products and have that a-ha moment, and you see they totally get it!  Then I think they must take another second and wonder what they have been using all of their life.  Donna definitely did her research and she lays it out line by line in a 3 page wonderfully written article titled “Feel Refreshed, Not Embarrassed: If you Are Washing Yourself ‘Down There’ with Soap, You Must Read This“.

The World According to Oz, Dr. Oz that is

Known as America’s doctor on Oprah, Dr. Mehmet Oz is one smart cookie.  While vice-chair and professor of surgery at Columbia University he also directs the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital. 

Though his research interests are in the area of the heart, he helps women by discussing issues on Oprah that sometimes are at the “heart” of a women’s existence, her sweet spot. 

When asked if douching was a good way to stay clean, he made the now so popular statement that the “vajayjay” is a self cleaning oven.  He was quoted on Oprah as saying “”You have your own bacteria in there. They’re for you. You’re supposed to have them there. When you wipe them out with a vinegar douche, then you’re left with repopulating it with whatever happens to be nearby. It may not be what’s best for you,” he says.

Douching, Dr. Oz says, may even make you more likely to have some problems, such as ectopic pregnancies and infections that can cause infertility. “It’s a big problem. That’s why I don’t think there’s any really good reason to douche. Period,” Dr. Oz says.

Keeping the vagina clean externally is important, and Dr. Oz says you should always wipe front to back to prevent urinary tract infections. And if you are worried about something in that area, you should go to a doctor and get treatment—Dr. Oz says that covering up problems with a douche won’t solve anything.

Oh Dr. Oz, tell them about SweetSpot Labs wipettes!

Men’s Personal Care Anyone?

anthony

SweetSpot Labs knows how to take care of a woman’s needs, but what about the men, who is taking care of them?  I am not talking about organic, anti-aging, wrinkle defying, self-tanning skin care products, but real keep me clean all day long products.  Billy Jealousy has a whole line of products for a man, unfotunately, most stop at the neck.  They’ve got pre-shave treatment, hair strengthening shampoo and wipe-out eye cream, but what about the rest of the body?  Molton Brown and Baxter of California both create luxury items for grooming while for a more rough and tumble sort of product Anthony Logistics has you covered, with products like the mud scrub exfoliating bar that I just might have to check into.  But if you are looking for something more rustic and even less expensive try Woody’s Meat and Potatoe Soap, you can pick it up for $6.95 at Brighton Beauty Supply.  Better yet, buy one of each, give it to the man in your life and reclaim your bottle of SweetSpot Labs gentle wash this Super Bowl season.

by Tami Chase

We knew it and now the statistics proved it, sales of personal care items are on the rise!  When people are struggling mentally they need a mood booster and personal care products might be just the thing to do it.  Surpassed only by food and beverage according to Skin Inc, beauty industry sales were up by 5.65% compared to the same period in December 2007.

We tend to let ourselves go a little during the winter because so much is covered up, but Spring is just around the corner, so don’t let your lack of daily rituals get too out of control.  Nothing picks me up better than a good mani-pedi…well maybe a good facial 🙂

Enough day dreaming, get out there to your favorite beauty supply, salon or day spa and fill up on a bag full of mood boosters.

And as always, don’t foget to keep your sweet spot set!

What’s in Your Boudoir?

a_boudoir_28louis_xvi__period29

by Tami Chase

While me may not equate a boudoir with the stylings of the Louis the XVI period pictured above, we do each have our own individual style and products we like to keep stocked in it.  Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet

For me, no matter how elaborateluxury-bath1 or not, my boudoir must contain some luxurious lotions to keep my skin hydrated like Lollia’s Grenadine and Tonic Shea Butter Handcreme, a plush robe and slippers for me to lounge around in while I get ready, fabulous brushes and mirrors by Ziba Beauty and last but not least my SweetSpot Labs balancing mist in citrus galbanum.

No matter what your taste or style it is sure to make your time more luxurious surrounded by the things you love. 

What’s in your boudoir?

Jock Soap

soap

Clearly the men of The Jock Soap Company were jealous that women now have a soap alternative to use in the shower for their sweetest spot.  SweetSpot Labs revolutionized the world of intimate grooming by formulating pH balanced products specifically for women, now The Jock Soap Company has done the same for our counterpart.  Meet their soap, So Fresh So Clean Jock Soap, Towel Fight Jock Soap and Score Jock Soap to name a few.  With ground almond meal on one side for exfoliation and sage/rosemary/basil/nutmeg blend for aroma you may want to use it in the kitchen instead!  We should be so happy a man is showing the way with his “Grooming Simplified” mantra, making the world a cleaner place one man at a time.  Thank you Josh Harrell.
