About the 1.6 & 2.6 Million Club
The 1.6 Million Club is a non-profit women's health organization that was founded in 1998 by Alexandra Charles, president ever since. She was inspired by the cardiologist, Karin Schenck-Gustafsson, and gynaecology professor, Britt-Marie Landgren, who could both tell of just how male-dominated the field of research was, and how women were discriminated within the health care sector. With the purpose of improving and creating equal research and healthcare, and in order to spread objective information, the 1.6 Million Club was established. The name came about because at the time, there were 1.6 million women over 45 years of age in Sweden.
Ten years later, the 2.6 Million Club was established for younger women, from 25 years and upwards. The 1.6 and 2.6 Million Clubs share the same objective, and anybody over the age of 18 is welcome as a member in the association (including men).

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.
