YES Organic Intimacy Week
What is Organic Intimacy Week?
Organic Intimacy Week is our chance to shout about the importance of organic and why product purity matters. Our certified organic status is at the core of our value system and our mission to ‘change the world from the inside’.
When it comes to skin care, we’re very good at paying attention to our face. It’s a no-brainer to seek out a moisturiser if our skin is dry, or invest in a blemish buster when acne appears. If we’re particularly health conscious, we may even opt for natural ‘clean’ skin care products. But when it comes to our intimate health, chances are most of us won’t give the products we’re using much thought, let alone the ingredients within them. After all, surely the products designed for use on our delicate tissues, only contain the best ingredients for our bodies? Sadly, that’s not always the case.
Many ‘mainstream’ products actually contain potentially concerning chemical ingredients, such as parabens or hormones which can cause irritation, burning or tissue damage. Statistics suggest that around 60% of what we put onto our skin (particularly the mucosal membranes such as the vagina or penis) can get into the bloodstream, just as oral medications can when swallowed. It’s no longer just a case of ‘you are what you eat’ but also ‘you are what you put onto your skin’. When you choose an organic product certified by a third party organisation, such as the Soil Association, you’re guaranteed to be making not just the best choice for the environment, but also the best choice for your own wellbeing.
We are passionate about ‘doing the right thing’ for our customers which is why our Organic Intimacy Week campaign aims to educate others on what to look for when choosing an intimacy product, placing importance on:
Brand transparency – choosing a brand certified by a third party such as the Soil Association in order to guarantee their integrity and purity of ingredients.
Familiarising oneself with the ingredients on a label, in order to make informed decisions about products purchased and understanding the effects of these ingredients on the body.
Understanding the importance of ‘voting with your wallet’ and how swapping to organic also supports a system that respects animals, wildlife and the environment.
When is the campaign?
The campaign will run from 1st September to 8th September 2019 (with World Sexual Health Day on 4th September).
