After so many years, breast cancer is still a taboo subject that people prefer not to address or talk about openly. In Malaysia, about 1 out of 5 females has been reported with breast cancer and it is the most common cancer from 2007-2011.
Betadine Feminine Wash Turns Pink for MAKNA
Since October is the Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Betadine Feminine Wash made a point to #breakthesilence as the topic of cancer is something that we have learnt not to shy away from. They are giving their support to the National Cancer Council Malaysia (MAKNA) and spread awareness regarding cancer prevention. One of the ways to prevent it is to look after your health, as early prevention saves lives. Every single effort, no matter how small, can make a huge difference.
Staying healthy is not just about what you eat and how you live; it’s also about maintaining your personal hygiene at tiptop level.
Our vagina is home to healthy bacteria known as Lactobacillus which works to protect our intimate area’s micro-environment. Under healthy conditions, this beneficial bacteria in the intimate area environment can help to maintain an optimal pH balance, while preventing bad organisms from thriving.
In order for the beneficial microorganism to have a healthy population level, prebiotics or good germs play an important role. Most people know that prebiotics are good for the digestive system, but in fact, they can also be beneficial to other parts of our bodies, such as the intimate area.
This is especially important for women’s personal hygiene, as prebiotics help to populate these beneficial organisms in the intimate area micro-environment, thus could help in protecting against feminine discomfort due to pH imbalance. With prebiotics, normal flora of vaginal micro-environment can be restored to help maintaining vaginal health.
Ideally, the female intimate area should have a pH level of 3.8 – 4.2. This means that at pH 9 – 10, most soaps and body cleansers available in the market can disrupt pH balance of the intimate area, which can result in infections caused by thriving unfriendly organisms.
|Beneficial Organisms (Lactobacilli)||Unfriendly Organisms (Others: Bacteria/Fungi/Protozoa/Viruses)|
|✔ Help maintain normal vaginal pH 3.8-4.2||✖ Overgrowth can lead to infections in the intimate area|
|✔ Suppresses the growth of unfriendly organisms||✖ Can cause infections and disrupt vaginal pH|
|✔ Keep vaginal flora in healthy balance||✖ Create an unfavorable intimate area micro-environment by displacing beneficial organisms|
