A Healthy Intimate Area

Vaginal dryness not uncommon - almost every second woman over 45 is affected by it.*

A feeling of dryness, burning, itching or even pain: the symptoms of vaginal dryness are unpleasant and can be a physical and an emotional burden for those who are affected.

Nevertheless, it is rarely talked about.

Looking at a healthy vulva, the skin of the vulva is also colonised by natural microbial flora including lactobacilli.

In addition, the skin produces a protective hydrolipidic film from its own lipids (fats) and moisture binding substances.

The hydrolipidic film has an acidic pH of about 5.0–5.5 and is also known as the protective acid mantle of the skin.

By this means a natural defence against pathogens (disease-causing micro-organisms) is also given in the vulvar area.

A Healthy Intimate Area

An Intimate Area
That's Out of Balance

A healthy system can compensate for external influences and, for example after washing, restore the hydrolipidic film and the skin’s protective mechanisms and defence against infection.

In case of sustained or long-lasting disruption of the hydrolipidic film, the skin cannot regenerate itself quickly enough, which can result in skin irritation and damage.

Skin damaged in this way can be more susceptible to pathogens, which can spread and also enter the vagina.

The Solution

If you are among the women who often suffer from skin irritation in the external genital area or if you simply want to feel cared for, Vagisan Intimate Wash Lotion is recommended for mild daily cleansing and Vagisan Protective Ointment as an additional product to protect and care for the sensitive skin in this area.
