Dec 2016 Q & A about Nature Fresh Intimate and oral Hygiene
Intimate personal lubricant – for conception?
Q ) I was told to contact you regarding one of the Nature Fresh lubricants. Please could you confirm if the odourless version is sperm friendly as my husband and I are trying to conceive and this is the only lubricant I can use and like on the market?
A ) Our lubricant is not a spermicidal gel but we have no guarantee that it does not trap a few little sperm cells. I should imagine there are plenty of them, so relax and enjoy. I worked for Dr Zeelenberg, a Gynaecologist who helped me formulate these products and he never mentioned it as being a problem. Obviously, use as little as possible. The contraceptive type has a large mass and has to trap all the sperm. If anything, it would be harder to guarantee is as a contraceptive! He used to tell ladies that for girls, his recipe was an acidic vagina. (Our product is acidic.) So, for boys, the chances are increased by more alkalinity. He used to advise a good rinse out with a solution of bicarbonate of soda, prior to intercourse. For girls he recommended adding a little apple cider vinegar to the douche. http://naturefresh.co.za/product-categories/intimate-hygiene/
God bless, looking forward to the new family! Love Sue
A ) Thank you so much for the feedback and insight – definitely my favourite product on the market for lubricant and the rooibos intimate wash. So good to see quality products like this out there.
Toothpaste for teething
Q ) Thank you again for excellent products. I was wondering – could I use the sensitive toothpaste as a teething gel for my little one? I assume I needn’t be concerned about it containing bee products seeing as it is purified (I am steering clear of honey until my baby is 1 year old)? I would appreciate your insights.
A ) We make Junior toothpaste – especially to double up for teething. The aniseed oil helps to soothe the gums. It can be accidentally swallowed. (My Grandchildren eat it with a teaspoon!)
Babies love it on their dummies and it is free of mint and thus suitable to use with Homeopathic remedies. Especially the ones for teething,
Rescue remedy and teething powders are very helpful. Love, Sue
Response: Thank you Sue. I was able to get away with using only chamomilla teething powder and tissue salts with my daughter, but my son seems to be a bit of a troublesome teether. Thanks, I will def try the toothpaste! Blessings
Q ) Me again, sorry. I am familiar with your kiddies toothpaste as I use it for my daughter. My son has very sensitive tummy….he reacts to many things in my diet with the breastfeeding. I was therefore just worried that the xylitol might upset my son’s tummy if I use the toothpaste as teething gel, hence my thinking of using the sensitive toothpaste instead?
A ) Try it – they are not ingesting very much xylitol? The aloe one is minty, so not recommended for Homeopathy.
pH balanced products for sensitive skin
Q ) We travel in Africa extensively and I use your hygiene wash as a body wash. This sometimes is impractical. Do you have any other ph balanced products in a bar of soap or wet wipe. I have a very sensitive skin and find your product absolutely fantastic.
A ) You can use our personal lubricants, applied to a wad of cotton wool for swabbing. Post op treatments like this work well, also for babies, so why not for travel? Enjoy your roaming!
Love the toothpaste, also for pets. How much mouthwash?
Q ) I purchased the nature fresh toothpaste at Dischem – absolutely a must have in any home – I also use it daily for my furry baby as he is Having gum problems – it really works Yesterday I got the breath buster antimicrobial mouth wash . How much should I use at a time – would one cap full be sufficient for daily use. Thanking you kindly
A ) Hi, glad you and your best friend like our toothpaste. Aloe, the one without xylitol is made especially for animals. The mouthwash is used anytime as a quick rinse or to freshen up, so a tiny sip does the job as a rinse. Follow with a rinse of water for 100% removal of food particles.
We also keep some in a small spray bottle to use when out and about. It has been used to cure acne, believe it or not! Yesterday I had a spider bite that began to swell up and get angry. I sprayed it with the mouthwash, as it was all I had in the car. It worked!
