About Quim | Intimate Self-Care Products

A self-care line for humans with vaginas and humans without vaginas who love vaginas ™

It's High Time We Break The Cycle

Historically, products created for vaginal health and sexual wellness have not been designed to take sustainable, proactive, self-care into account.

We can all agree that lube is a godsend, but the most widely available are glycerin-based and (because bacteria/fungus feed on the sugar in glycerin) can lead to UTIs. The antibiotics you have to take for your UTI wipe out all the “good bacteria” with the bad, leaving you at heightened risk of getting a yeast infection. Over-the-counter medication is relatively accessible and effective, but those suppositories will leave your vag drier than the Sahara, sending you right back to the lube that got you here in the first place. Woof.

The cycle is not working. We deserve more.
This is where Quim was born.

Our Mission

Our mission at Quim is to create products that deepen the connection you have with your own body, and empower you to care for it in a way that makes sense for you.

After years of dealing with persistent vaginal health issues on our own—yeast infections, bladder infections, difficulty climaxing, low libido, allergic reactions to commercial lube—we came together to share what we’ve learned and to bring you formulas that work for us. Happier quims and better sex through the natural powers of plant medicine.

We are not reinventing the wheel here—people (and often women) have been healing each other through plant-based care for millennia. Our formulas are inspired by centuries of folk medicine and, with you, we hope to create a space for people with vaginas to share their experiences and promote shameless self-care. By reconnecting with our own bodily intuition, we can fully tap into our power as the “#1 expert” on living in our own bodies.

“Because it’s high time we start treating our quims with the same TLC as our diligently serumed / SPF’d / charcoal-masked faces.”
