The Philadelphia native currently owns Atlanta Premier OB/GYN Associates, where she provides quality care to women of all ages. Rogers recently developed a laundry detergent specifically for women’s underwear — Clean and Cute Panty Wash. We spoke with her about feminine hygiene and more.
Why did you develop Clean and Cute Panty Wash?
Clean and Cute was developed purely by listening to my patients and trying to solve a problem. Many women find themselves dealing with bacteria and yeast. I’ve found that sometimes, the odor is not an infection, but poorly cleansed or soiled panties. It’s not that these ladies aren’t cleaning their panties, but that there’s a build-up of bacteria, yeast, blood, and mold in the panties that isn’t being addressed by standard detergents. I saw a need and the chemist in me got to creating.
What are some of the effects that harsh detergents can have on feminine hygiene?
People don’t realize the most common things like swelling, itching, discoloration, boils and even worsening ingrown hairs are from detergents. It can look or feel like yeast or herpes.
How is Clean and Cute Panty Wash different than others in the market?
It’s the only detergent designed specifically for women’s panties. It’s all-natural, nonGMO, sulfate-free, paraben-free, vegan, animal cruelty-free and perfume free. It smells of lemongrass, which is the essential oil that’s added. It rids the panties of bacteria (vaginitis), yeast, blood, and mold. Mold develops when we remove our panties and leave them in the hamper until the next laundry day. The moisture grows the mold. Standard detergents are not designed to specifically clean these things. It will just continue to grow in the cotton crotch of the panties.Click here to continue.
