Dr Karan said the product perpetuates a ‘myth’ that women need specific products for ‘feminine hygiene’.

He said: “Our consumerist society has become an expert at creating products that we don’t need and then making us think that we need them.

“Specifically when it comes to feminine hygiene products, they perpetuate this myth that women’s bodies are dirty and need to be cleaned and fresh.

“Doing so can actually upset the bacterial balance down below, increasing the risk of yeast infections, vaginosis and other conditions.

“This product is trying to jump on the idea of trying to control feminine odour but you don’t see the same thing for scrotal odour.

“A vaginas natural PH is around 4.5, this is a little more acidic than it is basic.

“This helps to limit the growth of harmful bacteria and makes its own antibiotics, to stop external bacteria entering the system.

“Douching, feminine hygiene products, all that kind of stuff stops the balance of the vaginal microbiome. Leading to infections and all sorts of badness.”

The video certainly struck a chord with viewers and it has now accumulated more than 560,000 views and 85,000 likes as well as thankful comments for the doctor’s advice.
