What is the difference between WB and VM?
Both YES VM vaginal moisturiser and YES WB water based lubricants are pH matched to typical vaginal pH which means both are ideal for vaginal use. A perfect vaginal lubricant’s osmolality would be hypo to iso-osmotic, this means it would release water more rapidly, rehydrating tissues and enabling intercourse
YES WB is slightly hypo-osmotic which means it is designed to release water more rapidly than YES VM, to instantly rehydrate and lubricate dry tissues to enable intercourse immediately.
YES VM is Iso-osmotic which means it is a perfect vaginal moisturiser because its osmolality is iso-osmotic, this means it is identical in water concentration to vaginal tissues and will release water as and when it is needed over extended periods, such as 1-3 days.
YES VM Vaginal Moisturiser is designed to release water to rehydrate dry vaginal tissues as needed, over extended periods, such as 1-3 days. YES VM will instantly sooth and calm irritation, itching and burning as does YES WB. YES VM is more of a slow release moisturiser, the rate of moisturising is determined by the degree of vaginal tissue dryness. The drier they are the more water will be released. YES VM puts your body in control of rehydrating herself.

Why are Osmolality and pH important?
Osmolality – defined by The Yes Yes Company Ltd (with thanks to Smitten Kitten too)
Osmolality, a more formal definition, is the measure of dissolved particles per unit of water in a solution or plasma (also called the concentration). The osmolality of a lubricant is important because the epithelial (outer) layer of skin is constantly trying to maintain an equilibrium of osmolality (remember Osmosis from school biology lessons?) between the skin cells and the lubricant on the outside wall of that cell.
Therefore in our view:
