Can I use the ®VMAGIC Vulva Balm internally?

®VMAGIC Vulva Balm is intended for external use, however, if it happens to come into contact with your vagina (interior region), there is no need to worry as the ®VMAGIC Vulva Balm products are 100% organic, free of chemicals and lab-tested for safety.

Do your products contain any potentially harmful ingredients?

Our mission is to create the highest quality natural products possible, which is why all Medicine Mama products are made from ONLY pure, certified organic ingredients. In accordance with California’s Toxic-Free Cosmetics Act, our products do not—and never will—contain any of the following: formaldehyde, paraformaldehyde, methylene glycol, quaternium-15, mercury, dibutyl/diethyl hexyl phthalates, isobutyl/isopropyl parabens, any member of the family of toxic chemicals known as PFAS, and M- and o-phenylenediamine.

How often should I use the ®VMAGIC Vulva Balm? When will I see results?

For optimal skin health, use ®VMAGIC daily, reapplying as often as needed or desired.

Immediately after use, you will feel relief from dryness, itching and inflammation. After a few days of use, the overall health, balance and skin integrity will improve. In a clinical trial 92% saw a reduction in dryness after consistent 2-week use.

I'm allergic to bees—can I use your products?

That is a great question and one we get often. Allergies to bee stings actually have no relation to honey and hive products as they are caused by bee venom, a completely different chemical compound. If you are concerned about potential allergies to honey and hive products, we do suggest you try a tiny dab first—but all Medicine Mama products are lab-tested to be 100% zero allergen non-irritant. 

Is any harm done to the bees when you obtain the honey and/or propolis used in your products?

Medicine Mama and our suppliers are committed to sustainable and responsible sourcing practices. Our products are certified cruelty-free and contain ingredients that have been traced back to the point of origin to ensure they have been ethically and legally sourced.

What does "organic" really mean?

Organic means that no chemical fertilizers, synthetic substances, irradiation, sewage sludge or genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were used in or around the raw materials being used, or the facility in which the products are manufactured. We are proud to offer certified organic skincare products that are made with organic oils, beeswax and honey, and free of all parabens, sulfates, fragrances and chemical synthetic fillers.

What is the Medicine Mama 100% Satisfaction Guarantee?

We offer a 30-day 100% money back satisfaction guarantee on all purchases made on our website. If for any reason you don’t love our products, you are welcome to return them within 30 days of receipt for a complete refund of your purchase price (less S&H), with no questions asked.

Where are Medicine Mama products made?

All products are manufactured in the USA.

Where do I find the expiration date?

Each product’s batch date is heat-stamped on our label on the bottom of the container, either above or below the barcode. Most of our products use the Julian date for batch date, which is the production date. This is considered to be the number of elapsed days since the beginning of a particular year. The first two digits of the code are the last two digits of the year, followed by the number of elapsed days. For example, the Julian date in 5-digit format for the calendar date of 06/09/2020 would be 20161.

On some of our products, the batch date is listed in the format using the first digit for the year (for example, 2020 = 0), the following two digits are the month (for example, June = 06), followed by the last two digits representing the day. The date of 06/09/2020 in this format is listed as 00609.

The expiration date is two years after the stamped batch date.

Why do I need a vulva balm?

One in four women across a variety of age groups have experienced vulva pain, irritation and/or discomfort at some point in their life. There are several causes of vulvar dryness, thinning and irritation, with the most common being the following:

  • Hormonal Changes including: Menopause, Pregnancy, and Postpartum
  • Medications like oral contraceptives and steroid creams and certain Medical treatments.
  • Hormone treatments
  • Irritants found in soap, detergent and sexual aids
  • Sexual Activity

The ®VMAGIC Vulva Balm provides instant relief for red, irritated skin and supports skin’s integrity over time to help relieve thinning and irritation while also restoring a healthy balance to vulvar skin to help reduce the following symptoms:

  • Dryness & Irritation
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Pain with sex
  • Chafing

Why has the color and/or scent changed since the last time I ordered this specific product?

Rest assured, the formula has not changed. The reason the color/scent of the products can change is because we source organic raw materials. Depending on the season and nectar/flower source, the honey, olive oil and beeswax can vary in color from bright yellow to greenish brown. The scent and color of our products are never manipulated or processed with de-colorants or deodorants, which allows for this variation, but the efficacy and quality always remain intact.
