The proprietary blend of nutrients are a group of nutrients like vitamins and minerals in trace amounts to promote the rejuvenation of the atrophied vaginal lining skin. It is like nutrient serum used to put on the face to smooth wrinkles (skin atrophy). All ingredients are natural, organic and non-GMO.
These products are oil-based. Bacteria and mold cannot grow even with loaded nutrients because the products are water-free. Therefore, we can avoid using preservatives. This is better than water-based products. Because water naturally supports mold and bacteria, water-based products must add toxic preservatives, like parabens, to prevent mold or bacterial growth. Parabens have some serious side effects (https://www.100percentpure.com/blogs/feed/5-common-side-effects-of-parabens). Therefore, preservatives-free means safer products.
Women with severe vaginal atrophy are sensitive to some of these ingredients. We have designed several levels of products with different ingredient concentrations to help women with different severities of vaginal atrophy.
