New Launch of Feminesse Moisturiser!
We are very excited to announce the new launch of Feminesse Moisturiser!
Feminesse Moisturiser is a brand new moisturiser that has been formulated to soothe the symptoms of vaginal dryness as well as provide longer lasting moisture to help maintain vaginal health. It has been specifically formulated with you in mind, including everything from the formula to the easy-to-use applicators.
We can understand that vaginal dryness can be painful and distressing, both on a daily basis as well as during sex. With 50%* of post-menopausal women having the symptoms of vaginal atrophy why are so many of us suffering in silence?
What’s more, vaginal dryness is not just a symptom of the menopause, with a variety of factors causing dryness, for example after childbirth or post-cancer treatments too. With Feminesse Moisturiser you can relieve vaginal dryness, whatever the cause.
Feminesse Moisturiser is:
- Paraben free
- Easy to apply
- Non-hormonal and oestrogen free
- Lasts for 3 days at a time
- Fragrance free
Feminesse can be used alongside HRT, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other treatments.
What is vaginal dryness and what are the causes?
There are many causes of vaginal dryness and it can affect women of any age at any time. Vaginal dryness is normally caused by a fall in hormone (oestrogen) levels. The most common reason for these changing hormone levels is the menopause. Breast feeding mothers and those who have had a hysterectomy can also be affected by changing hormone levels leading to vaginal dryness.
Some treatments and medications such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, antidepressants and allergy medications can also cause dryness as a side effect. What’s more, some hygiene products such as feminine sprays, harsh soaps, and some washing powders have been known to make symptoms worse.
How does Feminesse Moisturiser work?
Feminesse Moisturiser is intended for symptomatic relief from vaginal atrophy, dryness, itching, irritation and discomfort.
Unlike washes or lubricants which are used externally, Feminesse Moisturiser works from within to soothe vaginal dryness and provide longer lasting moisture. By delivering continuous moisture to the skin cells Feminesse Moisturiser encourages increased blood flow from the vagina leading to increased moisture, relief from symptoms and even a return of some natural secretions (discharge).
What’s the difference between lubricants and moisturisers?
Lubricants are more well-known and are commonly used just before sexual intercourse to make sex more comfortable and enjoyable. Vaginal moisturisers on the other hand are a less temporary solution. For example, Feminesse Moisturiser is made from a bio-adhesive formula, meaning that moisture can cling to the cell walls for up to 3 days a time. Lubricants do not adhere to the cell walls and will eventually slide away. As a result lubricants will need to be reapplied more frequently.
Feminesse Moisturiser has been formulated and designed specifically with you in mind. Due to growing concerns about parabens in healthcare and beauty products, we decided to avoid them altogether! Feminesse Moisturiser contains no parabens and it is also free from fragrance and hormones too.
We have enough little worries from day-to-day so with Feminesse you have one less thing on your mind!
Lasts for up to 3 days at a time
Feminesse Moisturiser is a longer lasting feminine moisturiser, providing comfort and relief for up to 3 days at a time with each application, leaving you with more time to focus on what’s important to you.
Some women find that applying Feminesse Moisturiser slightly less frequently still provides relief from symptoms. After all, everyone is different. You’ll soon find out what suits you best.
The different formats
The new launch of Feminesse Moisturiser also includes two different formats. You can choose from the option of Feminesse Moisturiser 33g which includes a re-usable applicator and 33g tube of moisturiser or Feminesse Moisturiser 5.5g which includes 6 pre-filled tubes. With Feminesse Moisturiser 5.5g you can discreetly pop 1 of the pre-filled tubes in your bag to use whenever is convenient for you! The great thing about both of the Feminesse Moisturiser formats is that they relieve dryness for up to 3 days at a time, meaning one less daily task!
Easy to apply
Whichever format you decide is right for you, Feminesse Moisturiser is easy to apply. We recommend applying once every 3 days and using it in the morning, after your bath or shower. The natural movement of you walking around will help the moisturiser get evenly distributed.
The applicator in Feminesse Moisturiser 33g’s is reusable. It has a stopper so that you only use the necessary amount of moisturiser required. Simply squeeze the moisturiser into the applicator, insert internally then remove and clean. Remember to wash the applicator in warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly before drying.
With the pre-filled applicators in Feminesse Moisturiser 5.5g you simply squeeze the applicator firmly to deposit the moisturiser into the vagina. Remove the applicator and discard.
