Made with: Purified water blended with an Organic Aloe vera gel, forms the base. Maceration of Calendula in Olive Oil is added to promote healing, and as a gentle moisturiser. This floats on the top, and is why the bottle needs a good shake before use. Cider vinegar acts as an anti-fungal, and will help to keep thrush away. A small amount of S.L.S.-free, castille soap is added for cleansing, and Essential Oils of Lavender & Manuka which are antiseptics.
