You say you’re using a vaginal suppository for vaginal moisturizing; the product you’re using contains illipe butter, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, apricot oil, meadowfoam plant wax, and carnauba plant wax. If you’re tolerating this product well, and it’s working for you, great!
It’s hard to determine in advance which products will work for which women. For some women, oils can be somewhat occlusive and cause tissue breakdown. For others, oils increase risk of vaginal yeast infections. Other women can be sensitive to specific ingredients, like coconut and certain fragrances.
Feel comfortable with what works for you, and keep in mind that your body changes over time, too—which may mean you’ll need to rethink your routine.
