NUNII is known for the quality products it markets to medical physicians and dermatology professionals. It is now tackling the issue of intimate area pigmentation, which has become a growing concern among patients and individuals who now also feel worried about these parts of their body, as social habits encourage them to expose more of themselves.

As a growing number of patients and dermatology professionals are now familiar with NUNII skin care and depigmenting products, they may not necessarily encompass the full scope of NUNII’s product ranges. Nunii is now well known for significant investments in the research and development of less controversial, less irritating ingredients in its depigmenting products. Beyond this ethos that has permeated the company’s development since its inception, NUNII is also keeping up with the times; lifestyles have evolved over the past years: clothes and fashions have become trendier and bolder; as a result, more skin is exposed for people to see. Yet, patchy intimate skin under those bold clothes psychologically reduces the confidence of many individuals: mostly women but increasingly also men.

With behaviours and mentalities evolving at a fast pace, skin lightening is no longer limited to the face, hands or legs; treatment goes beyond these conventional areas. It has become truly important for some individuals to deal with uneven, patchy skin pigmentation around their intimate areas. The most common source for concern, for women mostly, is the skin surrounding the vulva, groin, upper inner thighs, underarm and anal areas.

No individual wants to have to face the stigma of being considered ‘unclean’ or being perceived as someone who doesn’t hold proper body hygiene. And since it has become increasingly fashionable to disclose more of our skin, the situation of someone having uneven skin tone, possibly dark pigmentation around these areas may very well be frowned upon.

In an attempt to help those individuals who wish to also appear spotless while at the beach or in situations when more skin is socially exposed, NUNII is currently marketing a product range which perfectly addresses such issues, and thus can relieve many patients from social and psychological pressure of having patchy skin pigmentation in their intimate body areas.

Main causes for darker skin in intimate areas

Before delving into the benefits the NUNII products can bring, it is worth noting the most common causes of darker skin for intimate areas. Although we aren’t all born the same in terms of skin pigmentation, darker skin in intimate areas may arise mostly from external factors:

However, the first cause may very well be internal – or genetic. Incidentally: women’s vagina skin tends to be naturally darker, as it holds a larger number of melanocytes – the melanin-producing cells – which are the main skin pigmentation producing cell.

But there are other causes, which are external. Age is one of the main external factors causing this type of skin to darken: when an individual reaches puberty, female sexual hormones have a tendency to boost the amount of melanin in a woman’s body, thus darkening the intimate areas. But this isn’t all: pregnancy also enables melanin to accumulate in some tissues, such as in the nipples of a woman who has been pregnant and given birth. This is caused by oestrogen hormone levels that soar during pregnancy, leaving this type of area more pigmented.

Yet, there are some more unexpected causes, such as lack of ventilation of our intimate parts: most of the time covered with fabric, the skin can’t really get the ventilation it needs. Directly connected to lack of ventilation, repeated friction between tight clothing – such as underwear – and the skin may also bring darker skin over the years.

Intimate area shaving, waxing or depilating may also greatly enhance the odds of seeing one’s intimate area skin go darker as years go by: excessive heat due to clothing entrapment and/or friction between garment and skin, along with sweating – which contains bio-chemical substances which exacerbate the condition – may go as far as developing what is referred to as Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH).

The wide range of internal and external causes for skin darkening of intimate areas, along with the specific nature of the skin in intimate parts – much more sensitive and fragile than the skin on most of our body –  prompted NUNII to react and suggest a series of products which could suit individuals wishing to reduce the pigmentation  while being gentle enough to use on these intimate body areas, as most of them are located near mucous membranes.

How NUNII UNIQ-WHITE can bring appropriate solutions

Intimate skin darkening is by far not a recent phenomenon, but as we are more socially inclined to expose more of our skin, NUNII is marketing the Uniq-White System, which can safely be used as part of an overall treatment strategy to help improve and reduce unwanted pigmentation in the intimate areas. The treatment has been clinically proven to target and reduce skin pigmentation. What’s more, it doesn’t contain any of the ingredients that could harm the skin, such as Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, or Azelaic Acid. What’s more, Uniq-White System contains no parabens and is fragrance-free.

This professional treatment is administered only through medical supervision, and by certified aesthetic physician or dermatologist: this is designed to ensure the best-possible protection for the patient. When the patient meets with the practitioner, they both discuss the desired objectives, and the patient’s specific expectations. The physician then suggests a combination of skin lightening products within the Uniq-White patient kit to be applied daily by the patient at home. Possibly, and to supplement the home treatment, the dermatologist may also resort to chemical peels conducted in the physician’s office to provide extra exfoliation, in areas such as the groin, upper inner thighs or underarms.

When the patient returns to the physician’s office for a follow-up visit 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment is completed, the results are most often quite impressive. Although it is NUNII’s general policy to market its products via a network of identified distributors and certified physicians, it reveals particularly appropriate for this type of treatment, since intimate areas are often close to mucous membranes and made with thin, highly sensitive skin. Obviously, such delicate skin areas prohibit the use of lasers or acids for depigmentation purposes, as they would cause irreparable burns and/or inflammation.
