Expanded pharmacy distribution of Peptonic’s VagiVital[®]
Stockholm, December 19th, 2019 - Peptonic Medical AB (‘Peptonic’ or ‘Company’) today announces that Kronans Apotek and Apoteksgruppen have decided to carry Peptonic’s self-care product VagiVital® in 170 and 37 of their pharmacy retail shops, respectively, from w/c February 10th, 2020. Until now, VagiVital® has been available for purchase on the webshop of Kronans Apotek and on order in Apoteksgruppen’s pharmacies. However, from mid February the availability of VagiVital® will be considerably improved in these pharmacies.
In addition to now being for sale in Kronans Apotek and Apoteksgruppen, VagiVital® can be purchased in 280 of Apoteket AB’s pharmacy retail shops and in its webshop, and from the webshops of Apoteket Hjärtat (www.apotekhjartat.se) and Kronans Apotek (www.kronansapotek.se) , and on www.apotea.se, www.meds.se, www.apotek365.se and www.apohem.se.
Efforts to further expand the distribution of VagiVital® to even more pharmacy retail shops are ongoing. In Norway and Denmark, VagiVital® is sold on-line through its own webshops. In April this year, Orion Pharma Oy launched VagiVital® in Finland under its own trade mark, Femisan Vital.

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 (see www.vagivital.com).
