EpiGyn Intimate Calming Cream
A gentle formula for restoring skin integrity and improving tissue health
The atrophy that occurs through menopause can lead to discomfort in the vulva and other genital tissues. Decreased hydration and reduced collagen can both play a part, with sensitivity, itching, or burning as a result.
EpiGyn Intimate Calming Cream is formulated with a proprietary complex of fatty acids and lipids that help to activate peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) in the epidermis. The result is minimized inflammation in sensitive and stressed genital skin.
EpiGyn forms a non-greasy film on the skin's surface to help reduce friction; it also minimizes trans-epidermal water loss to improve moisturization. Calming emollients comfort stressed skin.
Who Should Consider This Product
Consider this product if you have discomfort during perimenopause or after menopause; if you're undergoing treatment for breast cancer, Vulvodynia, Lichen Sclerosis, Lichen Planus, or other vulvar disorders; while taking oral contraceptives; or after vulvovaginal procedures including laser therapy or surgery. Note that if your discomfort is caused by an infection (which may be indicated by vaginal odor or discharge or painful urination), this product will not address the infection itself; see your health care provider for diagnosis and treatment.
