What is Hyalofemme?

Hyalofemme is a hormone-free, paraben-free vaginal moisturiser.

Hyalofemme provides relief from the symptoms of vaginal dryness of various origin – itching, irritation and sexual discomfort.

It can also help to prevent infections that commonly arise from vaginal dryness

What is the difference between moisturisers and lubricants?

A vaginal moisturiser provides and maintains moisture inside the vagina, helping the vaginal tissue to stay hydrated.

A vaginal lubricant provides short-term lubrication, sometimes necessary during sex.

Hyalofemme is not a lubricant, but a moisturiser, which means it helps maintain vaginal health and comfort. However regular use of Hyalofemme can regenerate the vaginal tissue enough to make spontaneous sexual intercourse possible without the use of a lubricant.

How does Hyalofemme work?

The active ingredient in Hyalofemme is Hydeal-D®, a unique optimised version of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural lubricating and moisturising substance found in the skin and around the joints, and is widely used in skin care and medical products due to its excellent biocompatibility and hydrating properties. Hyaluronic acid can absorb many times its own weight in water. This is slowly released to give a long-lasting moisturising effect. Hydeal-D® promotes cellular hydration, leaving a natural non-messy feeling.

Clinical trials have shown that Hyalofemme is as effective as 0.1% oestriol cream. There is pre-clinical data to suggest that it can reverse vaginal atrophy, and it supports self-defence mechanisms in the vaginal epithelium.

Hyalofemme looks different. What has changed?

Hyalofemme is now packaged with a bright new look. Some people have concerns about the safety of parabens in cosmetic products so it has been removed from the formula. The new version is still made with the unique, patented Hydeal-D which makes it work so well, so you will still enjoy the benefits as before.

What are the ingredients?

Principal Component: Hydeal-D® (unique, patented Low Molecular Weight version of hyaluronic acid)

Other Components: Propylene glycol, Methylpropanediol, Carbomer, 1,2-hexanediol, Caprylyl glycol, Sodium hydroxide, Purified water.

How do I use Hyalofemme?

By applying Hyalofemme directly into the vagina using the supplied applicator, the gel will be placed exactly where it needs to be. Hyalofemme is mucoadhesive, so it has to be used only once every three days.  One tube of 30g Hyalofemme will last you a month when used as directed.

For more detailed directions, please click here, or consult the information leaflet within the box.

How often should I use Hyalofemme?

Due to its ideal mucoadhesive properties, Hyalofemme should be applied only once every three days, but depending on the severity of the condition, it can be used more often if relief is required.

How will Hyalofemme affect my sex life?

As the condition of you vagina improves you may return to being able to enjoy spontaneous intercourse. It is not necessary to use Hyalofemme immediately before intercourse. Hyalofemme will not affect your partner during sex. It is not poisonous and has no taste or smell. If, in the early stages of treatment, extra lubrication is required for intercourse, Hyalofemme is safe to use with any over-the-counter, water-based lubricant and as Hyalofemme is not oil based, it is safe to use with with lubricated/non-lubricated latex and polyisoprene condoms, but not polyurethane condoms.. Hyalofemme is not a contraceptive.

Can I use Hyalofemme with contraception?

Hyalofemme does not contain oils and it is safe to use with with lubricated/non-lubricated latex and polyisoprene condoms, but not polyurethane condoms.

Can I use Hyalofemme when trying to conceive?

Hyalofemme does not interfere with normal reproductive function.

Can I use Hyalofemme during my period?

Yes, although the gel may make your menstrual flow thicker and the blood flow may make it more difficult for the gel to deliver moisture to the cells than at other times.

Why have I experienced discharge?

Due to its mucoadhesive properties, Hyalofemme has been reported to cause much less discharge than other vaginal moisturisers.

A small number of women after using Hyalofemme have reported discharge. This is perfectly normal and is just a combination of Hyalofemme and dead cells. Usually the greater the initial dryness, the more dead cells and debris will come away in the initial stages of use. This will improve and eventually disappear as moisture is regained. If the discharge has an unpleasant odour or colour this may be evidence of a pre-existing vaginal infection so you should consult your doctor.

Can Hyalofemme cause vaginal infections?

No. None of the ingredients in Hyalofemme can cause vaginal infections. In fact, it has even be shown that Hyalofemme favours the activation of the body’s natural antimicrobial response, helping it to fight possible infections.

However a sudden change in the vaginal environment may reveal an underlying condition which has not yet produced clinical signs.

I’m a cancer survivor and can’t use HRT or oestrogen creams. Can I still use Hyalofemme?

Yes. Hyalofemme is a non-hormonal, paraben-free vaginal moisturiser, as effective as 0.1% oestriol cream. It can be used alongside other medication.

Can I use Hyalofemme after having a baby?

After pregnancy, the body needs time to get back to normal. Many lactating mothers will experience vaginal dryness and may wish to use Hyalofemme. We do suggest waiting 6 weeks after a natural birth (after your 6 week or postnatal check) before using Hyalofemme and always under the guidance of your health professional.

Can I use Hyalofemme after a hysterectomy?

Yes, but we do recommend that you seek advice from your gynaecologist or health professional as to when you can begin using Hyalofemme.

Can I use Hyalofemme during pregnancy?

Every pregnancy is different. We recommend that you consult your midwife or GP if you would like to start using Hyalofemme during pregnancy.

What else can I do to prevent dryness?

Dryness and infections can be aggravated by soaps, perfumes and other chemical such as bath oils and shower gels. Disinfectants and antiseptics could also cause discomfort so it is best to avoid using anything other than lukewarm water or a soap-free intimate wash.

Where can I get Hyalofemme?

Hyalofemme is available to purchase over the counter at most local and independent pharmacies. It can also be purchased online from our webshop. If your pharmacy does not have Hyalofemme on the shelf please speak to your pharmacist or pharmacy assistant who will be able to have the product delivered to your local store.
