JUVIA – Vaginal moisturizing gel

JUVIA – Vaginal moisturizing gel
Product Description

Problem
Vaginal dryness (or atrophy) is a condition caused by a decreased level of the oestrogen hormone. It is characterized by a thinning, dehydrated and possibly inflamed vaginal wall. A dry vagina means uncomfortable or painful sex. In more severe cases it may cause a dry, itchy or even burning feeling even without physical impact.

Solution
JUVIA GEL has a dual mode of action: (1) Hydration on the surface of the vaginal mucosa. (2) Oestrogen deficiency leads to a decrease in the amount of elastin and collagen that provide elasticity in the vaginal connective tissue. Zinc contributes to halting and reversing these changes in the connective tissue.

Target Group    
Most women start experiencing vaginal dryness around the menopausal transition when oestrogen levels naturally drop. Other triggers include gynaecological surgeries, oral contraceptives, giving birth and breastfeeding, etc.

Existing Alternatives
Lubricants, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and recently laser treatment are aimed at treating vaginal dryness. All of them have pros and cons. There are also several other moisturizers available on the market.
