There are times in every woman's life when using a lubricant may be necessary to relieve the unwelcome symptoms of dryness which can cause irritation, pain and discomfort during sex.This unique water-based gel formula with Hyaluronic Acid is designed to complement a woman’s natural lubrication, provide moisture and protect.
Having lectured on the topic of women's sexual health at Conventions for Health Care Practitioners, the University of Waterloo and to community groups and associations, Kalaya Co-Founder and Product Formulator, Phil Hudson B.Pharm, is an expert on women's health. In his Wellness Pharmacy, and as a member of the North American Menopause Society, he has used his knowledge and experience to help counsel and treat hundreds of women. Led by Phil Hudson’s expertise, and leveraging their medical experience, the professionals at Kalaya have been able to design a safe natural lubricant formulation to relieve discomfort and help lubricate.
Statistically 1 in 3 women suffer from vaginal dryness. Our medical team believes that this statistic is highly underrated given that women often do not like to disclose personal or intimacy issues. Realistically, most women will experience some type of intimacy issue caused by vaginal dryness in their lifetime. Vaginal dryness is often associated with the menopause, but women of any age can experience it.
Menopause remains the most common cause of vaginal dryness, with reportedly half of post-menopausal women aged 51-60 suffering from vaginal dryness due to reduce estrogen production. During and after menopause, the body produces less estrogen, which leads to fewer moisturizing secretions and can make the vagina feel dry. As we age, the tissue of the vagina also thins. These changes can result in irritation, painful intercourse and consequential intimacy issues. If you're suffering with these issues, you may need more lubrication than you previously did to feel comfortable during sexual activity. Watch the short video of our Compounding Pharmacist, Phil Hudson B.Pharm and B.Pharm.Hons.,RPh, NCMP, Irene Stronczak-Hogan discussing these issues and our new solution.
Formulated by the experienced medical professionals at Kalaya, the Intimate Lubricant is made without silicone, parabens, fragrance, alcohol, colourants or propylene glycol. Other lubricating products that you may find over the counter include ingredients like glycerin, which can cause yeast infections in women, as well as parabens and propylene glycol, which are recommended for use on such a sensitive area.
Our formula uses Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance, to protect, provide moisture and help lubricate. As well as providing lubrication, this naturally occurring ingredient is extremely moisturizing. The Kalaya Intimate Lubricant is also a water-based gel, which means it rinses away easily with water and it is safe to use with condoms (oil lubricants may destroy latex condoms).
