Navigating Menopause: Coping with Intimate Discomfort

Why did SBC create the Lotus Flower Menopause Range?

Navigating menopause can be a challenging journey, especially when it comes to intimate care. As a women-run company, we recognise the unique needs of menopausal skin and crafted the Lotus Flower Range specifically to address them. Our range has been carefully developed, with both our intimate wash and moisturiser being clinically and dermatologically tested. Ensuring you’re only using the safest and most effective products on your most intimate and delicate area. 

What is Menopause?

Menopause is a hormonal change that all women will experience in their lifetime typically in the late 40s to early 50s. Menopause is the stage in life when you stop having your monthly period, and therefore marking the end of your reproductive years. It all links to hormones and is a result of decreased production of oestrogen and progesterone in your ovaries.

What causes intimate dryness during menopause

There are a lot of functions that are affected by the dramatic change in hormone production, which leads to the symptoms many women experience day to day. The lack of oestrogen makes the vagina and surrounding area weaker, thinner, dryer and easily irritated. 

What are the best products for intimate care during Menopause?

The delicate intimate area requires gentle care, especially during menopause. SBC Skincare's Lotus Flower range is designed to address the unique needs of menopausal women experiencing intimate discomfort. 

Lotus Flower Intimate Wash: Our Intimate Wash gently cleanses while maintaining pH balance, helping to alleviate dryness and discomfort. It soothes and hydrates delicate skin, promoting a feeling of freshness and comfort. Alternatively, this gentle formula can be used as a body wash to comfort and balance as you cleanse without disrupting your skin’s moisture barrier, leaving you feeling fresh, clean, and hydrated.

What else happens to our skin during menopause?

Hormonal fluctuations lead to a decrease in collagen production, resulting in loss of elasticity and firmness. Additionally, the skin may become more sensitive during menopausemaking it prone to irritation and redness.

Why is a gel moisturiser good for menopausal skin? 

A gel moisturiser is particularly beneficial for menopausal skin due to its lightweight and hydrating properties. During menopause, the skin may become more prone to oiliness and congestion, making heavy creams feel uncomfortable and exacerbating the issue. 

NEW Lotus Flower Moisturising Gel (Face & Body - not Intimate): Instantly hydrate, refresh, and restore elasticity for sensitive or menopausal skin with SBC’s Lotus Flower Moisturising Gel. The lightweight formula absorbs instantly, leaving it feeling rejuvenated and hydrated without any greasiness. Additionally, the cooling sensation of the gel can offer soothing relief to hot flushes and skin sensitivity commonly experienced during menopause.
