Introducing our new water-based intimate moisturizing gel with hyaluronic acid and collagen, an innovative product that can improve women’s quality of life.
For.me.sa. Intimate Gel is natural and is indicated as an adjunct to lubrication in cases of poor hydration of the intimate area and/or to facilitate insertion and removal of the Pessary.
It contains hyaluronic acid and collagen, two substances naturally found in the connective tissue of the vagina, which have moisturizing, elasticizing and healing properties. Vaginal gel forms a protective film on the vaginal wall, which reduces friction and dryness and promotes cell regeneration.
The gel is indicated for all women who use pessaries, but especially for those who have an atrophic vagina, that is, a thinned and dry vagina due to reduced estrogen during menopause as it helps restore the trophism and physiological pH of the vaginal mucosa. The solution has a soothing action and can also be used in cases of vaginitis, cystitis or other inflammation of the intimate area.
A water-based vaginal gel is recommended to facilitate insertion and removal of the Pessary, reducing friction that can cause irritation or injury to the vaginal mucosa. This type of gel also contains active ingredients that have a lubricating and moisturizing function, which are useful in combating vaginal dryness that may result from hormonal, environmental or psychological factors. Prominent among these active ingredients are hyaluronic acid, collagen, and glycerin.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the connective tissue of our bodies. It has the ability to bind many water molecules, creating a viscous gel that lubricates moving surfaces, such as joints or vaginal walls.
Hyaluronic acid also has benefits for vaginal mucosal health, such as:
- Antioxidant effect: counteracts free radicals that can damage cells and cause premature aging.
- Anti-inflammatory effect: reduces swelling and pain due to inflammatory processes or trauma.
- Immunomodulating effect: regulates immune response and prevents infection by pathogenic bacteria.
- Regenerating effect: stimulates collagen production by fibroblasts, the cells that form connective tissue. Collagen is essential for repairing micro-lesions in the vaginal mucosa and maintaining its elasticity.
Collagen is a key connective tissue protein that imparts strength and elasticity to skin, tendons, ligaments, and mucous membranes. In the vagina, the most abundant collagen is type I (90 percent of the total), which forms interwoven fibers, creating a network that supports the epithelial cells. Collagen type I also plays an important role in wound healing, as it participates in the formation of granulation tissue, which fills the space left by the wound and promotes healing. Collagen thus reduces dehydration and prevents inflammation of the vaginal mucosa.
Glycerin is an organic compound that has emollient and soothing properties, that is, it softens and soothes irritated skin. In the vaginal mucosa, glycerin forms a protective layer that retains moisture and prevents dehydration. It also has an antibacterial and antifungal effect, which helps prevent infections.
MODES OF USE WITH THE PESSARY
To facilitate insertion of the pessary, a small amount of gel should be applied to the entrance faces of the device and the outer wall of the vagina. This will not only help in sliding, but also provide a beauty treatment for the vagina.
It is recommended to repeat the application each time the cleaning pessary is removed.
The gel does not interfere with the efficacy of the pessary or the vaginal flora.
Our vaginal gel is a safe and gentle product that restores intimate moisture and contains high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which nourishes the mucous membrane. This thins and dries up during menopause, making the Pessary less comfortable and more irritating. For this reason, it is important to use the gel with the Pessary in order to promote the absorption of hyaluronic acid and prevent inflammation. The gel is water-based, so it does not damage medical devices. Try the gel and discover the benefits of increased intimate hydration!
