Men and women are different in their anatomy, and the needs of their bodies are also different, which is why the same intimate wash cannot be used by both.  An Intimate wash for women usually contains lactic acid which is used to exfoliate and moisturize with the pH balance between 3.5 – 4.5 , which is suitable to female genitalia. On the other hand a hygiene wash for men contains glycerin which is very similar to the intimate skin and is not harsh.

The pH level of men’s intimate skin is between 5 – 5.5 , which also means that you cannot use a women’s intimate hygiene wash, because it would disrupt the pH level and cause irritation and infections.
