Bio-Match® Patented Technology
In 2012, an NIH-funded study reported that Good Clean Love’s Almost Naked® Organic Lubricant was one of the safest products in the study. Later, additional independent studies also showed Almost Naked® to be safer than other products both for the vaginal lining and for the vaginal microbiome. Research over the past decade has taught scientists that osmolality and pH are key characteristics of a good vaginal product.
For years, Good Clean Love had been forging a path of creating vaginal care products that do no harm, using bio-mimicry to nudge women’s bodies back to their natural, healthy state. They were awarded a patent on the idea of Bio-Matched vaginal gels. This commonsense approach of matching product formulations to natural body secretions is the foundation of their line of vaginal gels.
Today, Good Clean Love® is proud to offer a line of Bio-Match® products. Each is scientifically formulated to maintain an optimal acidic pH and support a healthy vaginal ecosystem while avoiding ingredients that irritate sensitive tissue or disrupt the vagina’s delicate balance.
Powerful Solutions for Vaginal Health
The keys to maintaining a healthy vaginal ecosystem is promoting conditions that match optimal vaginal pH, osmotic balance, and support the normal flora of the vagina. Bio-Match® products are based on the scientific model of biomimicry, which studies nature's models and uses these processes to solve human problems.
