RepaGyn® is a natural health product, and is formulated with hyaluronic acid (known for its ability to retain moisture in the skin/tissue and its reparative properties). RepaGyn® is a hormone free option that helps to relieve dryness and helps promote healing of vaginal tissue.
Hyaluronic acid significantly hydrates the tissue by drawing and retaining moisture in the vaginal environment. It has also been shown to accelerate the healing process mainly by facilitating cell transportation of essential nutrients. Because of this, hyaluronic acid helps to combat vaginal dryness, along with associated symptoms of itching and irritation and/or pain during sexual intercourse.
No, RepaGyn® does not contain any hormones or parabens. RepaGyn® is a natural health product and is formulated using a combination of hyaluronic acid with:
- Aloe vera (natural anti-inflammatory properties)
- Calendula officinalis (adjuvant wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties)
- Centella asiatica (promotes healing)
- Tea tree essential oil (natural topical antiseptic)
- Semi-synthetic glycerides
- Butylated hydroxytoluene
The recommended use for RepaGyn® is to place one ovule into the vagina daily (preferably at bedtime) for at least two or three weeks.
