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.


Founders

Lindsay Wynn & Taylor Samuelsen

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.

Press Articles

Is vaginal health still a taboo in business?
Forbes

The word “vagina” is either medicalized or sexualized in today’s world, and it’s certainly not a popular term in Silicon Valley.

This product claims to stop yeast infections, BV, and UTIS—here’s how it works
Byrdie

Intimate health is, for better or worse, an issue that takes up a fair amount of my mental real estate.

The best solution to an irritated vulva, from personal experience
Sunday Edit

If you ask me, our vaginas don’t get the TLC they deserve — nor do we talk about it enough.

Lindsay Wynn: “The biggest thing for me is getting people to be honest with themselves”
Thrive Global

Can I aim to inspire world peace, and if not that, at least amicable cohabitation? (Just kidding, kind of haha). In all honesty I think “great influence” gives me more credit than I deserve.


Testimonials

“I’ve struggled with yeast infections and bladder infections my entire life. The struggle is real and uncomfortable. I was so happy to find Momotaro. Almost immediately the pain and irritation goes away once I use it. I 100% recommend this to my friends.”

“I will be forever grateful that this salve came into my life. After suffering with chronic vaginal symptoms for years, I tried everything. I was put on prescription drugs that gave me a severe allergic reaction that I’ve been trying to heal ever since. This salve is MAGIC. Within the first use, I could feel it working. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without it but it is the most healing product on the market for any symptoms ranging to severe or mild!”
