Dear Kindra Community,
Over the last year, our Kindra Innovation Lab has been working behind the scenes with leading chemists, women's health experts, and OB/GYNs to test new estrogen-free health and wellness solutions that our community (you!) felt were needed. That's why we developed the only gentle bath soak specifically formulated with the shifting pH of menopausal intimate skin in mind: Soothe Bath Soak.
Did you know that as we get older the pH of vaginal skin can shift? Pre-menopausal vaginal pH ranges around 3.8-4.5 and increases throughout menopause becoming more alkaline to around 5.5 or even higher during post-menopause. Why does this matter? When pH rises, the acid mantle (a protective barrier against bacteria and infection) becomes disrupted and unable to function as effectively. This can result in dry and irritated intimate skin. Current bath products on the market often do not specifically consider the particular needs of menopausal skin. And those “fizzy” or “bubbly” elements in a bath? They are formulated with ingredients that may be high in pH, which may contribute to vaginal dryness and irritation. No thanks!
We felt passionate about developing Soothe as current bath products on the market do not specifically consider the needs of menopausal skin. Your Lady V deserves the gold standard for her night-time ritual, so we created the perfect, silky soak, that’s also backed by science.
I can’t wait for you to try Soothe and to hear about how you’re incorporating it into your self-care routine. You can read more about Menopause & Bathing here.
As always, if you have any questions feel free to call us at (973) 636-1177 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Excited about Soothe but have some questions? Here is a list of the answers to our most frequently asked questions.
Is Soothe Bath Soak estrogen-free?
Yes! In line with Kindra’s ethos, Soothe is formulated with ingredients known to be free of estrogen, phytoestrogens or progesterone.
Why does vaginal pH matter when it comes to bath products?
The pH of vulvar and vaginal tissue can increase as menopause progresses, as a result of estrogen decline. This may contribute to higher risk of vaginal discomfort, dryness, and even infections like UTIs or yeast infections. Synthetic fragrances and preservatives popular in many bath products can also further irritate an already sensitive intimate area. Kindra's Soothe Bath Soak is a first of its kind, designed specifically for the shifting pH of vulvar and vaginal tissue during midlife. You can read more about Soothe, pH and bath products here.
How long should I soak for?
We recommend at least 20 minutes to feel the full stress relief benefits plus skin hydration and nourishment. If you prefer, Soothe may also be used as a shower gel to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin, especially when you are feeling dry and sensitive.
How many baths will one bottle last for?
At the recommended use of 2 oz per bath, you will be able to enjoy 4 full bath soaks.
How often should I be bathing with Soothe Bath Soak?
We recommend adding Soothe to your self-care ritual, ideally 1-4 times per week.
Should I rinse off after taking a bath?
Soothe has been specifically formulated for deep skin hydration and nourishment - you can leave it on, or do a quick shower rinse, and gently pat dry.
Is Soothe a bubble bath?
Soothe is not a bubble bath. Many bath products on the market do not consider the particular needs of menopausal skin, often formulating with ingredients that can create “fizzy” or bubbly” elements - while sometimes a fun experience - can be extremely drying and cause further discomfort.
How does this help with hot flashes and night sweats?
Hot flashes and night sweats can be triggered by stress, feelings of anxiety, or simply as a result of estrogen decline due to menopause. Helping to calm the body and mind is known to be beneficial to help manage the discomfort of hot flashes, as well as preparing for sleep to support reducing night sweats.
Is this product fragrance-free? It smells so good!
Soothe is free of synthetic fragrances. The mild and calming fragrance is from natural botanical extracts, chamomile and rose.
Can this only be used by menopausal women?
Soothe is formulated with ingredients known to be safe, effective, and nourishing for anyone experiencing dry skin, sensitive skin. If you are experiencing discomfort or sensitivity in intimate skin for reasons other than menopause, Soothe can be a gentle, calming soak to hydrate without irritating ingredients.
