Getting intimately acquainted with our lady parts
We (so) get it. Knowing the lady landscape isn’t exactly common knowledge, let alone something we feel comfortable talking openly about versus other body parts. And we can certainly relate to lady parts insecurity.
Yet, in our pursuit of bringing better intimate skin care to ourselves and ladies across the country, we found that even a simple daily intimate skin care regimen can be extremely empowering. Just knowing how our bodies work on a deeper level can help undo the taboo, boost confidence and minimize the negative self-talk.
Lady Suite products are designed to help you feel your best. Enjoy healthy, revitalizing skin care in the place that needs some special attention.
Let’s talk about the lady garden
We want to make sure you understand the difference between your vagina and your vulva. The vagina is on the inside. If you look at your lady parts with a mirror, the only visible part of the vagina is the vaginal opening. The vulva is the external skin that protects your vagina.
Keeping the vulva healthy and resilient can better prevent ingrown hairs, provide more padding for normal wear and tear from grooming, spinning or cycling, sex, tight jeans, harsh detergents and skin care ingredients, chlorine, the wrong underwear, and not to mention the miracle of birth. She goes through so much!
So essentially, if the vagina is a home, the vulva is the garden (wherever your hair grows.) Lady Suite skin care tends to your garden… all year round.
What does that mean? Lady Suite Botanical Oil is meant to nourish and support the vulva - whether you have hair or little to no hair. It can be very soothing, conditioning and rejuvenating to sensitive intimate skin and it can also condition pubic hair to be softer. But our Botanical Oil is not meant to be used inside the vagina as a lubricant or vaginal moisturizer. It's still safe for the entire vulva and vaginal area, but it has only been tested for external use.
This (very) simplified diagram represents the vulva. The pink colors represent the areas where you can safely apply the Lady Suite Botanical Oil. Apply to pubic hair and any areas where you ladyscape — wax, sugar, shave or laser.
Take a look for yourself
VULVA: The proper name for a women's outer genitals is the vulva, which is often mistakenly referred to as the vagina. Just like any other part of the body, vulvas are unique and come in all shapes, textures and sizes.
CLITORIS: Front part of our sexual organs known as the pleasure spot. Full of nerve endings — 15,000 of them — the tip of the clitoris is usually the most sensitive area on the vulva and is the only organ in the entire body that's sole purpose is sexual arousal.
LABIA MINORA: Known as the "inner labia" or two small folds of skin tissue inside the labia majora. They protect the vagina and provide sensation and lubrication during sex. The inner labia are rarely symmetrical; one side can be longer than the other or can stick out of the labia majora. Even color can vary. These variations are completely normal and healthy!
LABIA MAJORA: Known as the "outer labia" or outer folds of skin surrounding the vagina orifice. These outer lips also protect the vagina, and also vary in color, size and texture.
VAGINA: The passage between the uterus and the external genitals. The only part of the vagina that's visible from the outside is the opening. Most of the vagina is actually on the inside and it leads all the way up to the cervix.
VESTIBULE: The vestibule is the vagina opening.
URETHRAL OPENING: This is how we wee.
