What is the vulva?
The vulva is the part of the female anatomy that includes all of the external components of the female genitalia, including the labia majora (outer lips), labia minora (inner lips), clitoris, the opening of the urethra, the opening of the vagina (internal female sexual anatomy), and mons pubis.
Why is vulvar skincare needed?
Vulvar skincare can be used to address various concerns, including dryness and irritation. We believe in reverence for the feminine, at every stage of a woman’s life cycle—and that includes taking care of your most intimate parts. Many women feel that vulvar and vaginal issues are shameful, private, and dirty. We choose instead to honor and celebrate the feminine. Rosebud Woman vulvar skincare products are beautifully package, natural, and—most importantly—effective.
Is the vagina part of the vulva?
The vagina is the internal part of the female sexual anatomy. The vulva includes the external parts of the female sexual anatomy.
Is this just another commercial pitch to get women to buy more stuff?
Self-care is the best care. When in balanced harmony with self and surroundings, women experience a beautiful flow of natural functions. However, from our experience of the cycles of life, things aren’t always in balance. More than half of women [in the USA?] have a complaint about the skin quality of their vaginal region. This includes feeling, function, and/or appearance. We offer our products to create more beauty and joy (they really feel wonderful during application) and to reduce some everyday kinds of suffering—such as dryness, irritation, or discomfort after or during sex.
Isn’t the vagina self-cleaning?
Yes, the vagina is self-cleaning. Soaps and other cleansers should never be used internally unless directed by your health care professional. The vulva (external) however, is not self-cleaning. The best way to clean your vulva is with plain, warm water. Refresh, our pure and gentle cleanser, was created to be used when you are unable to bathe or need a quick, refreshing pick-me-up.
What does “plant-based” really mean?
Plant-based skincare means that the active ingredients in Rosebud Woman products are found in natural herbs, shrubs, trees, vines, and flowers. Our all-natural pharmacopeia includes powerful but gentle compounds such as vitamins, antioxidants, and emollients.
We are fully transparent with our ingredients. Each product page will list complete ingredients and you can find out more on our ingredient glossary at https://rosewoman.com/pages/ingredients.

Are you rated on EWG/Skin Deep?
We have found the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database to be an invaluable resource for assessing the safety of products we put on our skin. The skin is the largest organ in the body. Molecules applied to the skin often enters the bloodstream, and sometimes also the organs. This is why we use nothing synthetic—we want a low body load. Many other product lines are made with less care and attention. They are often highly chemical (containing fake colors and scents, etc.), and can be disruptive to the endocrine and reproductive systems. Rosebud Woman is committed to using impeccable ingredients.
We are not yet rated by Skin Deep but intend to be soon.
Made in the USA?
Yes, our products are formulated in Los Angeles, California.

Rosebud Woman products are packaged beautifully—we want you to enjoy seeing them as much as you enjoy using them! They look lovely on a vanity, a bedside table, or beside a bathroom sink.
Why does Arouse balm tingle? Is it actually stimulating your skin?
A few moments after applying Arouse to the skin, several of the plant extracts create vasodilation: an opening of the pores, which stimulates blood flow to the area. Spiranthes Acmella, one of the plants used in Arouse’s ingredients, activates natural lubrication. The sensation has been compared to tingling or effervescence, like champagne bubbles popping. Though the sensation soon fades, the slight \ plumping and lubrication of the skin remain. The sensation also brings attention to the area, which in itself enhances arousal.
Is Arouse a lube?
No, Rosebud Woman products are skincare, not lubricants. Unlike a lubricant, Arouse is not ‘slippery’ — it is intended for external use and stimulates the vasodilation that makes this product so special. Part of our goal is to move care for the whole vaginome beyond the theatre of sexuality, and into the honoring realm of self-care as well.
Is Arouse safe for internal use?
While our products are not created for internal use, some serum may migrate on the skin due to viscosity or use during sex. When this happens, some internal contact may occur. This is safe and should cause no concern.
How does Soothe work to calm the skin?
Soothe contains a high percentage of medical-grade Arnica, along with a specially crafted blend of other herbs that work to calm the skin. Soothe is also made with natural emollients, to cool and protect the skin.
Are your products safe for use during oral sex?
Yes, our products are safe during oral sex for both the giver and the receiver. If you are lucky enough to enjoy oral sex after Arouse or any other Rosebud Woman product is applied to the vulva and vaginal area, you need not worry about any side effects or adverse reactions in your (or your partner’s) mouth. We’ve even added an all-natural sweetener to Arouse from an extract of licorice (though it has no licorice-like flavor) to ensure a pleasurable experience for everyone involved.
Are Rosebud Woman products safe to use on other parts of the body?
Yes! Due to the superior quality and efficacy of all our products, we encourage you to use them on any external body part you wish. We meticulously formulated each product to a very high standard for their intended use—on the vulvar area—they are safe for use on any external skin.
At home, we use our products in multiple ways. For example, Soothe is an incredible muscle rub. Refresh is a wonderful gentle cleanser anywhere on the body—even your face. Men have also used Refresh, particularly after playing sports or working out. We like to use Arouse on and around the lips for a quick tingle and plump, and on the fine lines near the eyes. Last, but definitely not least, Honor is fantastic for dry skin, making it a marvelous lip and cuticle balm. Honor also feels great on cracked nipples. It really is the perfect product for your nighttime ritual. As you use each product and get a better hand feel for each formulation, you’ll find numerous ways that they work best for you.
Are there times when your products should not be used?
Arouse is a stimulant, so results may vary. Arouse should not be used on aggravated skin, open cuts or wounds, or if any sores are present.
Honor, Soothe and Refresh can be used on irritated skin, as they are formulated to treat just this type of issue.
If you are concerned about a reaction, please do a patch test prior to use in larger quantities. The Company
