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:
- Boric acid is a pesticide.
- Boric acid is poisonous to humans.
- Boric acid is an environmental pollutant.
- 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. 
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. 
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! 
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 
NeuEve – the non-Boric Acid Suppository
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.
