Stockholm 3rd October 2018 – Peptonic Medical AB (publ) (’Peptonic’) or (’Company’) today announced that it has received a launch order for the Finnish version of VagiVital® from Orion Pharma. The value of the order is in excess of one million SEK, and it shall be delivered by the end of this year.
This is another historical event in Peptonic. That Orion Pharma has decided to launch Peptonic’s non-prescription product for the treatment of vaginal dryness is an accolade to the clinical documentation and quality of the product, says Johan Inborr, CEO of Peptonic Medical. Soon women in Finland will have access to a new, hormone-free, safe and effective treatment for vaginal dryness.
Orion Pharma will market VagiVital® under its own brand in Finland. Pharmacies and pharmacy webshops will serve as the main distribution channels.

VagiVital® is a hormone free self-care product for the treatment of vaginal atrophy and vaginal dryness. The product has been tested in randomised clinical studies (vaginal atrophy) with very positive results both for objective (vaginal pH and proportion of superficial cells in the vaginal mucosa) and subjective (most bothersome symptoms, such as vaginal dryness, vaginal irritation/itching, dyspareunia and dysuria) parameters. The magnitude of symptom relief is on par with that demonstrated with e.g. estrogen based products on the market today. It was very well tolerated and caused no serious adverse effects.
Peptonic Medical is launching VagiVital® as a non-prescription self-care product in 2018.
