Peptonic Medical AB (publ) (’Peptonic’ or ’Company’) today announced that it has filed a patent application for and intimate wash based on the Company’s vaginal gel VagiVital® and a specifically selected oil.

The market as well as the number of applications of products for intimate health are growing. And fastest of these the intimate washes, that can generally be divided into soaps and oils.

This combination will give the product a unique position on the market, which is why the patent application has been filed.

– To be able to stabilise a water-based gel like VagiVital® including an oil is unique and gives us the opportunity to introduce a new type of gentle and soothing gel wash on the market, says Johan Inborr, CEO of Peptonic Medical. This is a welcome addition to the VagiVital® brand. 

VagiVital® is a CE marked product for treating symptoms associated with vaginal atrophy.

About  VagiVital®

VagiVital® is a patent pending 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. prescription estrogen based products on the market today. It was very well tolerated and caused no serious adverse effects.

VagiVital® was launched in Sweden as a non-prescription self-care product in July 2018 (
