Four Reasons Why NeuEve Does NOT Contain Boric Acid


Boric Acid crystals (H3BO3)

NeuEve cares deeply about the health and wellness of our customers. The ingredients we use reflect our belief in the scientific healing power of wholesome, natural ingredients.

We strongly recommend against using boric acid vaginal suppositories, for these four reasons:

  1. Boric acid is a pesticide.
  2. Boric acid is poisonous to humans.
  3. Boric acid is an environmental pollutant.
  4. Boric acid actually makes bacterial vaginosis worse.
What you read next may surprise you:

Boric acid is a pesticide.

Boric acid has the nickname "the gift that keeps on killing." Cockroaches coming in contact with boric acid get an effect like shards of glass slowly cutting them apart. A tiny bit of boric acid can wipe out an entire whole roach colony, something even atomic bombs can't do. [1]

Boric acid is poisonous to humans.

In 1988, in a tragic accident at a festival in Malaysia, 13 children died from food poisoning after they ate a dish containing boric acid. Their symptoms included: vomiting, pyrexia, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, anorexia, giddiness, seizures, and eventual coma. [2]

Boric acid is an environmental pollutant.

Environmental experts in Australia have concluded that "chronic intoxication with boric acid may give rise to anorexia, loss of strength, confusion and loss of hair. Reproductive effects, such as low sperm count, were seen in men exposed to boron over the long-term." Yikes! [3]

Boric acid actually makes bacterial vaginosis worse.

Boric acid vaginal suppositories kill all bacteria indiscriminately. There are actually a lot of good bacteria called lactobacilli. Lactobacilli are the unsung heroes, they work hard to keep your vagina healthy and smelling fresh. When you have a strong population of lactobacilli, they actually help keep out the odor-causing bacteria. Boric acid destroys your entire vaginal microbial population; it's extremely disruptive. After using boric acid, scientific studies show that ~50% of women soon get recurrent BV [4]

NeuEve contains no boric acid

It's for all the reasons stated above that NeuEve contains no boric acid. All of NeuEve's ingredients are 100% all-natural, food-grade and nontoxic.

If someone ingested a boric acid vaginal suppository, they would have to call Poison Control. If someone ingested a NeuEve vaginal suppository, absolutely nothing would happen.

Tens of thousands of women have safely found permanent relief from BV using NeuEve.

Image credit: Alex Martin When Samantha from Sex in the City was entering the United Arab Emirates, her luggage was searched for drugs, which can carry the death penalty. Her bags filled with creams and vitamins were confiscated. But Samantha was still very worried because of her belief that the cosmetics control her hormones and hold off menopause, the abrupt end to fertility commonly known as change of life.

Female Libido and Sexual Dysfunction

Hot Flashes Female Sexual Dysfunction Once women enter menopause, they often talk loudly about hot flashes and night sweats. The elephant in the room is loss of libido. Interest or desire for sex declines. Some women are unable to become aroused, while others cannot achieve orgasm. Moreover, vaginal dryness and atrophy, as well as painful sex, can also result in a loss of libido. The incidence of female sexual dysfunction is high, about 40% among normal aging postmenopausal women and close to 100% among breast cancer survivors who have been on an anti-hormonal therapy. Female sexual dysfunction can have a profound impact on quality of life, but it has been largely ignored by the healthcare community. Major reasons may include: traditional social conservatism, gender inequality, and cultural suppression against women’s sexual desire. Because truly effective remedies are not available, even if women openly seek care for sexual dysfunction, they are often given ineffective treatment…
