After various experts, doctors and fans all slammed the product she cheekily named Purr, Kourtney, 43, responded with a TikTok defense featuring Dr. Kathleen Valenton – a board certified OB-GYN and owner of the Rodeo Drive Women’s Health Center in Beverly Hills.
“The vagina is self-cleansing, and generally takes care of itself,” the doctor said in a TikTok posted on Lemme’s page.
“But there are few things that can throw off the vaginal flora. Things like stress, sex, excessive vaginal bleeding, douching and antibiotics.”
Kathleen reasoned that a probiotic like Purr can help the effects of these setbacks.
However, various medical professionals have slammed the product, with one even calling it a “vaginal scam.”
Fellow OB-GYN Dr. Melanie Bone told Cosmopolitan: “Overall, the probiotics in the gummies could prove beneficial.
“However, certain elements of the marketing campaign for these gummies are harmful.
“The notion that there is something we should be doing to alter the natural taste and smell of our vaginas is not something we should be concerned with, and the idea that pineapple, for instance, can alter the way our vaginas taste is a myth.”
Author of The Vagina Bible, Dr Jen Gunter, called the Kardashian a “misogynist” and “awful person” for suggesting that the “vagina isn’t fresh or needs an improved taste.”
Others have advised that women who have any changes in odor or discharge should seek medical advice.
A U.S. Sun reporter who tested the product first-hand found it to be “nothing more than an enhanced lifesaver gummy with an unnecessary amount of sugar.”
Comedians have had an ample supply of new material since the pills popped.
Chelsea Handler was recently a guest host on The Daily Show on Comedy Central.
On one episode, she guided a roundtable discussion with two other comedians about a new Lemme gummy.
Chelsea and her fellow female comics took several jabs at the controversial chew.
But Kourtney seems to have taken it all in stride.
In fact, she even re-shared a clip from the show to her personal Instagram stories, adding some smiley face and pineapple emojis.
And then she capitalized on the free publicity by providing a link to her treats.
A number of Kourtney’s followers also commented about the new product on her Instagram posts both on her personal account and her Lemme page.
One critic wrote: “Ladies, please consult your doctor before buying vagina vitamins from the Kardashians.”
Another wrote: “Let’s be honest, she’s in it for the ads and not the products.”
