Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer - 6 Pre-Filled Applicators (5g per Applicator)
Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer is vital to women prone to vaginal problems due to dryness or vaginal fluid change. These changes are gradual and often go unnoticed until they lead to vaginosis, yeast infection, odor and painful intercourse. Any change can alter the correct pH and disrupt the vagina's natural protective enzymatic action!
Causes of Vaginal Dryness/Changes:
- Antibiotics and Medications
- Autoimmune Disorders
Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer contains the key ingredients to keep a healthy and balanced flora of "good" bacteria, mainly lactobacilli (similar to those in yogurt). These "good" bacteria keep the vagina at a suitable acidic pH. Healthy pH can help reduce risk of vaginosis and yeast infection.
Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer contains:
- Glycogen - a prebiotic clinically proven to promote and cultivate beneficial bacteria and restore vital acidic pH.
- LPG Bio-Enzyme System (Lactoferrin, Lysozyme, Lactoperoxidase) - to maintain the balance of the natural flora by inhibiting harmful bacteria.
- Mannose - a collector of harmful microorganisms to prevent them from binding to the vaginal wall and creating a harmful biofilm.
All women can benefit from Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer. Its advanced technology is carefully balanced with unique moisturizers that soothe and protect for several days.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why is Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer unique?
A: Most leading vaginal moisturizers contain parabens and glycerin. Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer is the first paraben and glycerin-free product. Like your stomach and mouth, your vagina is complex containing a multitude of microorganisms. This well balanced flora can be disturbed by many products including preservatives. Luvena is the first product to use naturally occurring proteins and Bio-active enzymes naturally found in vaginal fluid.
Q: What causes vaginal dryness?
A: Dryness may be caused by many reasons including hormonal changes, over 400 Rx and OTC Drugs(including antihistamines and antidepressants), stress, heat, breast feeding, compromised immune systems, soaps, douches and many other things. Vaginal fluid contains certain key enzymes and proteins that help fight irritations, infection, itching and odor.
Q: Why is pH important?
A: pH is important because it keeps the flora in the vagina in a balanced state. When the pH is disrupted, opportunistic microorganisms may cause irritation, infection, itching and odor.
Q: What are parabens?
A: Methylparaben and Ethylparabens are preservatives(antibacterial agents) that may disrupt the flora of the vagina. Also, the long term effects of parabens are in question. Luvena Prebiotic Vaginal Moisturizer is the first preservative free moisturizer and lubricant of its type.
Q: Why is glycerin free important?
A: Glycerin is in a family known as sugar alcohols and is slippery to the touch and sweet to the taste. Using Glycerin based products may lead to an increase in harmful yeast in the vagina, because Glycerin can be a food source for these single celled organisms.

The same natural protective system found in the mouth is also found in the vagina. Luvena contains this exact same protective system successfully used in biotene and Oral Balance.
