How long will my Secret Ceres last?
With regular use (1x per week), Secret Ceres will on average last for 10 - 12 month. However it does not expire after that time. This amounts to an investment of $10/month or 35 cents/day into your intimate hygiene. With each use the healing herbs and Kaolin clay will be dissolved and absorbed causing it to gradually reduce in size. With frequent external use on larger skin parts it will be used up faster.

My doctor says my vagina is self cleansing and there is no need to wash inside of my vagina.
Your vagina is self cleansing but your vulva is not. Culturally hygiene routines and body care regimes vary. In Middle Eastern, African, Asian and South American cultures it is common to use floral vaginal washes to wash inside of the vulva as well as herbal steams and clays to nurture, purify and tone the vagina and sexual organs. In western cultures it is proclaimed to not tamper with the mucous environment of the vaginal flora, whilst oral hygiene on the other hand is widely propagated and practiced. The mucous skin in your vagina is very similar to that inside of your mouth. While the mouth produces saliva to cleanse itself we have developed tools to support a clean oral environment, by cleansing our moth on a regular basis. Before the invention off the tooth brush ulcers, bad breath and bacteria in the oral mucous environment were common, in the same manner that various issues are common among women today due to lack of care of their most precious environment, that is often surrounded by a lot of shame and taboo. Every woman must decide for herself what feels most natural and comfortable to her.
