Dehydration of genital areas, known as vaginal dryness, frequently affects woman’s life, from fertile to postmenopausal period, and must be treated with specific products, including proper intimate cleansing. Based on that, two new cleanser formulations, characterized by Hyaluronic Acid 0.2% as main ingredient, have been developed (Hyalo Gyn® Intimo Active and Hyalo Gyn® Intimo Advance), with the aim to provide an effective hydration of the vaginal, vulvar, perianal and anal areas beyond guaranteeing daily intimate hygiene. The two intimate cleansing mousses have been formulated in mousse and differentiated, in terms of ingredients, accordingly to the different physiological conditions and female needs of fertile age and menopause respectively. Clinical trials conducted on women of childbearing age and menopause showed that daily cleansing with these intimate washes promotes hydration of vaginal tissues thanks to the presence of hyaluronic acid. In particular, the cleansing mousse for fertile women gives also a soothing effect, offers antimicrobial protection and a long lasting feeling of freshness. The cleansing mousse for menopausal women provides a freshness sensation, improves elasticity and tonicity and exerts an anti-smell and anti-oxidative effect.
