The respondents were asked to describe drawbacks in using the cream. Ninety three per cent had no issues. 2 had issues related to price/volume, 1 described “too much good bacteria/overuse” and 1 said the “cream irritated the outer genitalia slightly”.

All the answers were from women.

 

The cream was developed also to help men with bad smell from the penis (smegma). We are still short of a reaction from these intended users.
