Did you know around 30% of people with vaginas suffer from bacterial vaginosis and 75% of them will experience at least one yeast infection in their lives, with recurrence rates ranging from 40%-50%? Vaginal wellness is important for everyone. No one wants to experience discomfort or see a loved one in pain. However, that doesn’t mean you have to turn to ineffective and outdated products.

Sexual wellness and vulvovaginal care now have a new BFF that gets it. Momotaro Apotheca offers amazing, plant-based products that address the very common issues people with vaginas experience. Let’s face it. Bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, irritation after sex, exercising, or wearing specific clothing can interfere with our daily lives and well-being. 

The brand is on a mission to inform consumers about natural choices for vulvovaginal care through certified organic products, educational campaigns, and philanthropic causes they champion. By being transparent and inclusive, this LGBTQ+ queer-owned brand is easing many people’s discomfort when discussing their sexual health regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

Founders Lindsay Wynn (she/her) and Taylor Samuelsen (he/him) reframe how everyone thinks about vaginal wellness. When Lindsay couldn’t find a safe, over-the-counter product for her yeast infection that wasn’t filled with harmful chemicals or offensive language, she created her own line out of her kitchen, eventually turning that into Momotaro Apotheca. 

The brand is at the forefront of intentionally crafted certified organic products, with healing ingredients such as Oregon Grape, Chamomile, Tea Tree, Jojoba, Goldenseal, and Calendula. These proactive, plant-based products target common vaginal infections as well as dry skin, pelvic pain, gut health, and stress.
