If you are looking for a vaginal wash that is gentle, safe, potentially healing and locally made, try Bylsan. Formulated by former King Fahd Medical City researcher and gynecologist-turned-entrepreneur, Dr. Ahmed Al-Badr, the product has been approved by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority.
Made with myrrh and lavender extracts, the 200 ml bottle has clear liquid inside that lathers nicely without feeling heavy or sticky. The product is free of sulfates, silicone, parabens, and artificial fragrances.
Acting as an acidity neutralizer, the wash is suitable for daily use. Its main aim is to help cleanse the sensitive area and reduce the risk of infection. It is safe for new mothers to use post-surgery and promises to help relieve delivery pains.
Al-Badr told Arab News: “Leveraging my background in research and gynecology, I meticulously formulated Bylsan wash with a deep understanding of women’s intimate health needs.”
“Knowing the lack of such products and through scientific investigation and clinical expertise, I ensured that Bylsan not only meets the highest standards of safety but also addresses specific gynecological concerns effectively.”
Al-Badr is committed to creating a line of products to advance “women’s well-being, combined with a strong research foundation,” and said he has 15 new products in the pipeline. His only hurdle, so far, has been securing funding.
Available at Whites for SR90 ($24), the price tag is a bit steep compared to similar imported offerings on the shelves, but it is well worth a try.
With a vibrant presence on social media, Al-Badr has become a pioneer in normalizing conversations about women’s body health and creating products to support them in the Kingdom.
