A recent clinical study, titled Biocompatibility and Efficacy of an Isotonic Buffered Gel for Vaginal pH Balancing, evaluated the impact of IsoFresh Balancing Vaginal Gel on women’s concerns about, and frequency of, unwanted vaginal odor. In this study, 30 women with self-declared concerns about vaginal odor and a stated desire to feel “more fresh” used IsoFresh according to package directions for 30 days. The study included an ethnically diverse group of women, some of whom are of reproductive age and some of whom have reached menopause.
Results from this clinical trial reveal that IsoFresh:
- Lowers vaginal pH, after just one use and after 30 days of use
- Decreases frequency of unwanted vaginal odor
- Decreases women’s concerns about unwanted vaginal odor
Balancing the vaginal ecosystem and maintaining vaginal pH in a healthy range are essential to preventing unwanted odors. By decreasing vaginal pH, IsoFresh supports vaginal self-cleaning and vaginal freshness, which may explain why IsoFresh works for preventing unwanted feminine odors.
Along with lowering pH, this study showed that IsoFresh improves quality of life. As part of this study, participants filled out a questionnaire at enrollment that asked them to describe what, if any, concerns they have about feminine odor. 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. After 30 days of using IsoFresh, women reported a decrease in concerns about unwanted vaginal odor, which means they weren’t altering their plans or lifestyle because of vaginal odor.
