    Momotaro Apotheca – Say Goodbye to Femcare, Hello to Vaginal Health

    Reach out and touch somebody’s hand. It’s ok to feel shameful if you can’t do something on your own or you need help from someone else. The fantastic thing is you don’t have to live in that shame. We all need help from time to time. A question is to ask yourself — when you feel ashamed, are those feelings hurting or helping you? What are those feelings telling you about yourself, and are they appropriate?

    Propelled by purpose and a shared compassion for supporting people with vulvas, Momotaro Apotheca aims to address the physiological and psychological challenges affecting people from puberty to menopause and beyond. Transform healthy habits into daily rituals with proactive sexual self-care. Sustainably sourced, certified organic, vegan, and gluten-free formulated without fillers. Experience simple, safe, and effective Sexual Wellness, without shame, stigma, or scare tactics. Their best-selling salve soothes sensitive skin with natural anti-inflammatories Echinacea and Goldenseal while the restorative Tincture’s botanical hemp infusion mellows stress in body and mind. Momotaro Apotheca put them together for complete mind-body balance.

    Natural Yeast Infection Treatment

    In many traditional cultures, before harsh chemicals and 24-hour prescription creams became commonplace, anyone trying to support vaginal and pelvic health considered goldenseal and Oregon grape to be powerful, safe, and gentle ways to help address candida infections. Today, Momotaro Apotheca selected organic botanicals rich in berberine for the products. As a key alkaloid in goldenseal and Oregon grape, berberine works to quickly treat yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis.

    About Momotaro Apotheca:

    Unable to find a safe, effective over-the-counter product that wasn’t full of harsh chemicals or offensive language that often did more harm than healing, co-founders Lindsay Wynn and Taylor Samuelsen set out to create simple solutions for vulvovaginal self care. The consequence of that curiosity is an accessible and discrete suite of products gentle enough to be used on every body, every day. Learn more about Momotaro Apotheca’s story here.

    The word “momo” is peach in Japanese and “taro” is a root crop from the Pacific Islands, however, these words have their own personal colloquial connotation. While Momotaro is also the name of an important character from Japanese folklore, that story has no connection to the brand.
