In our blog posts,
we try to speak in a medically informed but accessible way about intimate
discomforts that many of us struggle with from time to time. We want to make
the subject discussable, take it away from the realm of problems, and offer
solutions for everyone (young and not so young). We hope we succeed in doing so
in whole or in part.
Since our launch in early July, we received a lot of great feedback on
our brand and product, which makes us very happy. Very gratifying! We also
received a number of interesting questions from medical circles about the role
of the Intimate Oil Spray in a doctor's practice. In what follows, we are going
to try to answer those questions in human language (and as little doctor jargon
In addition to the general applications already covered in the previous
blog posts, our product can also be included in specific medical treatments.
Intimate Oil Spray is an emollient or soothing agent. As such, our spray
can be used as a supportive measure in the treatment of various skin
The main component of our product is hydrogenated olive oil. This
ingredient has emollient, softening and moisturizing properties and protects
the skin. The application of this emollient component will help strengthen the
skin barrier and reduce discomfort. The other ingredients such as tocopherol,
bisabolol and chamomile also have similar and soothing effects.
The effectiveness of an emollient is closely related to the intensity
with which it is used and therefore to its ease and pleasure of use. Therefore,
we opted for a nice 'look and feel', a hypoallergenic perfume, an upside-down
misting pump, and a light, non-greasy and fast-absorbing texture. Our oil was
also successfully reviewed for contact allergies.
Our spray is a soothing care
product for the intimate region that can be used daily, with or without
ailments. Genital skin is delicate and has its own character with a higher
temperature, higher humidity, a pH of 4.5, and a specific bacterial flora. In
order not to disturb these characteristics, a unique olive oil-based formula
was chosen with no addition of water.
This way, we managed to keep out emulsifiers, silicones, dyes and
preservatives (which often lead to skin reactions) and the uniqueness of the
genital region is respected. For the full composition of our product, please
refer to the blog post 'Intimate Oil Spray, nourishes, protects and restores
Intimate Oil Spray can therefore be used broadly for minor discomforts
as well as recommended for specific conditions. At Shinn, our aim is to write
formulas and develop products that everyone is comfortable with, regardless of
the final use. After all, everyone deserves good and pleasant skincare.
Of course, we advise anyone suffering from specific skin complaints to
consult a doctor or pharmacist. Our blog posts in no way replace a doctor's
Meanwhile, Shinn continues to work on a wash oil with the same features
as the Intimate Oil Spray with additional cleansing properties. This is
something we hope to tell you more about soon.
Finally, we are proud to announce that Shinn will be attending the
National Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology on 1 October. For some of you,
