Study Shows IsoFresh Balancing Vaginal Gel Decreases Odor and Helps Women Feel More Clean
March 21, 2019
Preliminary clinical trial data from ObGyn practice settings found that over 95% of women using the IsoLove IsoFresh Balancing Vaginal Gel from Fairhaven Health every three days for a month reported a decrease in vaginal odor concerns and a “more fresh and clean” feeling. The study includes an ethnically diverse group of women, some of who are of reproductive age and some of who have reached menopause. A decrease in concern about feminine odor was seen among the study participants after just one application of IsoFresh, with a further increase following multiple uses. The women also reported that they like that IsoFresh is an easy to use, clear, and clean vaginal gel.
IsoFresh Balancing Vaginal Gel is a patented, vaginal gel containing lactic acid that is applied inside the vagina every three days, or less frequently as needed. Once it has been inserted, it adheres to the lining of the vagina to support normal vaginal self-cleaning and to stop odors produced by unhealthy bacteria. The formula contains no ingredients reported to harm vaginal cells or friendly bacteria. In fact, laboratory tests on IsoFresh show that it has no irritation potential. In contrast, other commercially available balancing gels include ingredients that have been shown to interfere with vaginal cells and healthy vaginal bacteria, and these products have moderate to severe irritation potential. Vaginal irritation was evaluated in the IsoFresh study using World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. Vaginal examination by physicians using the WHO criteria revealed no irritation following consistent use of IsoFresh over one month.
Before beginning the research protocol, study participants filled out a questionnaire that asked them to describe what, if any, concerns they have about feminine odor. The study participants reported an increase in concern about embarrassing vaginal odors following their menstrual period, after sexual intimacy, and when changing clothes. The women also reported that concern about odor causes them to change social plans and/or avoid wearing certain types of clothing. Sexual Medicine Specialist, Dr. Joanna Ellington, is not at all shocked by these concerns. Dr. Ellington formulated IsoFresh Vaginal Gel to be a helpful solution for women of all ages that are regularly concerned about unwanted feminine odors. “Most women know that douching is dangerous to vaginal health,” says Ellington “But until IsoFresh there hasn’t been a product that decreased odor concerns, without using ingredients that can harm the vaginal ecosystem.”
Physiologic or “natural” pH in the vagina is low to protect the healthy bacteria that fight off infections, including sexually transmitted diseases. As a result, maintaining a physiologic pH is critical for vaginal health. The IsoFresh study also evaluated links between vaginal pH and odor concerns. Women who used IsoFresh were found to have significantly lower vaginal pH after just one dose and one month of using IsoFresh per the recommended use of the product. “I was not surprised to see that IsoFresh helped maintain a physiologic vaginal pH, or that it decreased odor concerns for so many women,” states Ellington. “I use this product regularly and I recommend it to all of my friends and relatives that are concerned about their vaginal health.”
