Vaginal dryness is a problem that many perimenopausal and menopausal women encounter as mucous membranes begin to shrink and lose some of their elasticity. When cleansed with conventional alkaline shower soaps, the delicate membranes may take up to 24 hours to regain their normal pH. Removal of the skin’s natural acid mantle makes it vulnerable to irritation and infection.
Other products typically contain hydrocarbons such as mineral oil, petrolatum and liquid paraffin, prompting many women to avoid them. The difficulty can be particularly problematic for women undergoing radiation therapy for cancer, because petroleum-based products can build up on the skin and deflect the radiation.
Lubrigyn’s line of pH-balanced cleansing, moisturizing and lubricating products, formulated with natural active ingredients and free of hydrocarbons and hormones, can help. They contain hyaluronic acid, an intensive moisturizer that draws out moisture, enables the skin to be hydrated and even helps to rebuild skin cells. Other ingredients include calendula (marigold) to soothe skin and lubricating elastin, plus jojoba and sweet almond oils, which add tone, elasticity and skin protection.
Lubrigyn products may be used with or without water, and won’t disappear down the shower drain like some other plant-extract moisturizing products.
