“One year ago we were at a road’s crossing. The in-house developed vaginal gel without oxytocin showed remarkably good treatment effects in the clinical study, which made us decide to launch a non-prescription (OTC) product under the trademark VagiVital®. During the past year we have worked hard to prepare for the launch and we have gained useful insights of the market. The CE mark for VagiVital® is expected in the near future and then the road to the market is open. We expect to have established the brand on the home market within a year. Discussions regarding distribution outside Sweden are underway. Hence, we are facing exciting times as we are now launching the first commercial product in the history of Peptonic.”

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 plans to launch VagiVital®as a non-prescription self-care product in 2018.
