about

Made in small batches in Portland, Oregon, Momotaro Apotheca is an 100% organic, non-binary vaginal wellness company that supports the physiological challenges and quality of life issues associated with the nuanced aspects of sexual and reproductive health. Launching with their hero product, the Multi-Use Salve and shortly after adding a Bath Tonic and Hydrosol Spray, each product is developed with specific consideration of issues such as Bacterial Vaginosis, Yeast Infections and general discomfort and irritation from sex, exercise and clothing.Products are always plant based, organic and intentionally crafted to be a part of a positive and compassionate conversation about how gentler, systemically more effective, natural products are essential for health, wellbeing, and self care.

founding story

“Momotaro Apotheca was inspired by my own experience dealing with recurrent yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis, along with what seemed like a string of bad luck with big-brand over-the-counter and prescription options,” said Momotaro Apotheca Founder, Lindsay Wynn. “With simplicity in mind, we created the Salve and future products to safely support the vagina's natural ability to relieve symptoms like infection and itching stemming from yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, pH imbalance, and general irritation from sex, clothing, and exercise — without disturbing friendly bacteria. We’re a direct-to-consumer company that takes people out of the feminine care aisle with products that acknowledge that feelings, scent, and discomfort are not things to be covered up; rather they’re to be discussed and taken care of in a realistic way.”

Bios

Lindsay Wynn
Momotaro Apotheca was co-founded by Lindsay Wyn and Taylor Samuelson in Portland, Oregon in 2019. The seed was first planted a few years back when Lindsay began experiencing chronic yeast infections and Bacterial Vaginosis and was left to rely on conventional, over-the-counter medicine that inhibited long-term healing of her symptoms.After countless trials and tribulations, Lindsay and Taylor (who were in a committed relationship at the time) took a deeper dive into self education on all things vagina-related and found that people have been successfully using natural homeopathic remedies for years. After months of prototyping products, speaking with experts, experimenting with ingredients and formulas and expanding their understanding of the issues they aimed to support, one of Momotaro Apotheca’s first products was born, the Multi-Use Salve.
