The Scoop: Single women can feel insecure and uncomfortable if they don’t feel fresh, and it can throw off their flirtation game when on a date. Women need a back-up plan to help them feel clean and ready to go if the public restroom is out of toilet paper or they’re heading to a coffee date after a workout. Goodwipes offers a biodegradable and hypoallergenic solution for those moments. The easy-to-use wipes and washes can be stashed in a purse and pulled out any time before, during, and even in the middle of a date to feel confident fast.

There’s a lot of talk about that “not-so-fresh feeling” in women’s products, but what that means and how to avoid it can be a little confusing. Fortunately, Goodwipes is on the scene to make self-care down there much easier. 

Here’s the thing: The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services — along with doctors around the nation — maintain that women absolutely should not douche or wash out the interior of their vagina. That’s where the marketing phrase about not feeling so fresh came from, and so it makes sense that women are confused.

The insides of women’s bodies are self-cleaning and should not be rinsed with any sort of liquid as it can disrupt the fragile pH balance of the microflora. But many women struggle with not feeling clean in their most sensitive area. The truth is the outer vulva area sweats just like any other part of the body. If it’s not cleaned properly with the right kind of cleanser, well, your date may notice a smell.

Staying clean and fresh is a lot more than just trying to impress a date, of course. Regular cleansing can help prevent urinary tract infections and stop yeast from building up. It’s important to use a product that is made from natural ingredients, rather than the harsh chemicals in bar soaps that can throw off the body’s natural pH levels. 

Goodwipes is a product that can help women feel fresh and healthy, whether they’re on a date or simply wanting to be confident in their daily lives. The team behind the products can educate ladies about their bodies and offer simple solutions to potentially embarrassing circumstances.

“We’re focused on breaking through previously taboo topics and uniting people through shared experiences — and laughing about it all along the way,” said Goodwipes spokesperson Maria Guilbault.

A Diverse Team Works to Support Customers

Maria said Goodwipes team members are diverse in terms of gender, background, and skill sets, and they all love to support women on a journey to feel confident and stay healthy from top to bottom.

“We all love to laugh and to embrace the realities of life. There’s no such thing as TMI in our world,” she said. “We are constantly seeking to empower each other and those around us and to serve the greater good of humanity.”

Down There Wipes are plant-based, cruelty-free, and flushable.

The team includes operations managers, copywriters, brand-building experts, and community support professionals. Together, they work toward a common mission of simply helping people feel good.

Customers vary in demographics. While the wipes are designed for women, they can be used by anyone and in all sorts of awkward situations.

“We have a loyal community of college athletes, high school teachers, nurses, corporate hustlers, super moms, super dads, and their families,” Maria said. “Anyone can prioritize their hygiene, self-care, and that fresh, clean confidence.”

The company has discovered that many people throughout the U.S. see feminine hygiene as a taboo topic and don’t always feel comfortable asking questions or sharing experiences. If they’ve come from an especially stressful or active day and aren’t feeling their freshest, some women have a feeling of shame. That’s something the Goodwipes team actively works to dispel. 

They even make light of the completely natural situation with funny titles for their team members.

“We want to completely destroy those taboos, as they should have never been something taboo or shameful in the first place. Let’s normalize and embrace our incredible bodies!” she said. “We are Massterpieces. Vageniuses! And we’re here to help you confidently own that fact.” 

Plant-Based Products are Safe for All Bodies

Goodwipes are an excellent alternative to harsh chemical cleaners and bar soaps. All Goodwipes products are made with natural ingredients designed to cleanse and nourish the body, including its most sensitive parts. 

Maria said that bar soaps and body washes, in general, have a pH of 9, which is much higher than the vulva’s natural pH that’s usually between 3.5 and 4.5. When a woman uses a product with a pH that’s too high, the body can become unbalanced, dry, and irritated.

“We’ve created specialized Down There Wipes and Washes with a pH of 4 that pairs perfectly with the vulva, in combination with natural and nourishing ingredients like aloe, vitamin E, chamomile, calendula, and sage,” she said.

The wipes are made of plant-based fibers, which are fragranced with hydrosol scents. The team creates the scents by soaking botanicals (i.e. roses or lavender) in water. The result is a soothing and sweet-smelling treasure that can fit nicely in any woman’s hygiene regimen.

“​​We love to keep things all natural, hypoallergenic, and incredibly gentle and safe for the super-sensitive skin we’ve all got going on down there,” she said.

The individually wrapped body wipes are especially good for women who are on-the-go. A popular product is their collection of three scents — fresh, cedar, and lavender — that are made from natural tea tree oil, cooling peppermint, aloe, and ginseng. They’re free from parabens, phthalates, and alcohol, and the wipes are completely biodegradable and hypoallergenic. 

Best of all, they’re 9.5 inches by 11.5 inches, big enough for almost any situation down there.

Goodwipes Can Provide a Self-Esteem Boost

A woman on a date can feel her best when she’s packing Goodwipes. Even if she loses some freshness along the way, she can quickly remedy the situation and carry on having fun.

“You can even sneak into the bathroom in the middle of your date for a quick refresher. Our individually-wrapped wipes are super discreet and made to stash and dash,” she said. “We get numerous write-ins — thousands, in fact — from our consumers discussing their confidence when meeting someone new for the first time or squeezing in a date night or a sweat sesh with their significant others in the midst of their busy lives.”

Those testimonials come from singles and couples alike and mean everything to the Goodwipes team. One woman said the wipes were a lifesaver for her when she finally got a date with a guy she had a crush on for four years.

“They literally saved me from having the most embarrassing moment in white jeans,” she wrote. “I’m so thankful for the wipes. Not only did they make me feel clean, but I smell great and they helped me feel more comfortable about it finally being over. I carry them around everywhere and offer them to friends when they need a little pick me up.”

Another customer said she appreciated having a Goodwipe on hand at the end of a long day.

“I love having them with me, especially during the summer cause the hotter it gets the sweatier I get,” she wrote. “They are good for on the go and even when you are about to have sex after a date but haven’t showered since that morning.”
