Recommendations for use

Use Gentle Cleansing Care as a liquid soap, for external use on the intimate area and body. Lather, then rinse with clean water.

With a mild formula for use once a day, and suitable for sensitive skin, Gentle Cleansing Care is also recommended for discomfort in the intimate area (irritations, feelings of discomfort, etc.).

Avoid contact with the eyes.


Can I use Gentle Cleansing Care on a daily basis?

Yes. Its soap-free formula enriched with softening agents makes it an ideal daily hygiene product. Its slightly alkaline pH protects the pH and flora of the vulvar area (5).

Why should I use a specific personal hygiene product such as Gentle Cleansing Care rather than normal soap?

It is essential to use a suitable hygiene product to ensure your personal hygiene routine does not cause irritation. Gentle Cleansing Care is soap-free and formulated with gentle surfactants to protect the sensitive intimate area.

Can Gentle Cleansing Care be used all over the body in the shower?

Yes. Gentle Cleansing Care is indicated for sensitive or irritated skin. Its formula is enriched with softening agents and burdock for a gentle body hygiene routine. It has been tested on skin under dermatological supervision.

Can I use Saforelle as a vaginal douche?

Vaginal douches are not recommended unless prescribed by a doctor. They can alter the vagina’s protective flora and mucosa.

Should Gentle Cleansing Care always be rinsed off?

Yes, Gentle Cleansing Care should be used like a soap. It is important to rinse skin and the intimate area thoroughly after use.

My 13-year-old daughter is experiencing irritation in her intimate area. Can she use Gentle Cleansing Care?

Minor concerns in the intimate area are common when girls start puberty. Wearing underwear and clothes (such as trousers) that are too tight, as well as certain sports (cycling, horse riding, etc.) that cause repeated rubbing can cause intimate discomfort. As Saforelle is designed for the intimate area at any age, your daughter can use Gentle Cleansing Care on a daily basis to soothe her irritation(4).

    First it was suggested by my gynaecologist, but Saforelle has quickly become a must-have for my personal hygiene. I’ve been using it every day already and I’m really happy with it. I recommend it to all women.

    A product I’ve been using for several years, really gentle, kind to the skin, my sensitive skin tolerates it perfectly, a product I’d recommend to everyone.

  • Francine

    I use Saforelle Gentle Cleansing Care and it’s really good. I buy it as a pack of 2 when there’s a promotion at the pharmacy.

  • Gaelle

    I love this product. My gynaecologist suggested it to me and I wouldn't be without it now. It’s gentle for your skin and has a gel texture that lathers up really easily. It smells nice and leaves you feeling clean for the day.

  • Geraldine

    I’ve been using it since 2012, it doesn’t make you dry, it smells fresh. It was recommended to me after I had an operation

  • Hélène

    I use Saforelle Gentle Cleansing Care every day and I’m very happy with this product that suits my delicate skin really well! I suggest it to everyone!

  • Pauline

    My doctor prescribed this product for me after I had repeated bouts of cystitis about 3 years ago. I’ve used it every day since then for my whole body! I like the moisturised feeling it leaves after my shower, its smell and that I’ve never had cystitis since then. I buy them as a pack of two when there’s a promotion. So I really recommend using this every day
