Relief from Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis
Relief from Symptoms of Bacterial Vaginosis
Restore® Moisturizing Vaginal Gel relieves dryness, eases related discomfort, and reduces abnormal odor. Vaginal dryness and irritation can be a problem for women at all stages of life and may result from many factors including health conditions, medications, hormonal changes, and stress. These symptoms are often your body's way of communicating a pH imbalance.
pH Rating: 3.6 - 4.1 | Osmolality Rating: 250 - 400 mOsmol/kg
Balance Moisturizing Wash cleans and moisturizes with a combination of aloe vera, soothing botanicals, and lactic acid. Balance has no harsh soaps, no parabens, and is an effective vaginal health alternative to products made with concentrated petrochemicals, parabens, and toxic fragrances. Balance is a pH-balanced vulva wash that provides relief from itching and irritation.
pH Rating: 4.0 - 4.5
BiopHresh® Vaginal Homeopathic Suppository delivers effective relief right to the source of the problems by balancing your vaginal ecosystem back to normal levels and introducing beneficial probiotics that support vaginal health. The buildup of unwanted bacteria can lead to itching, irritation, unusual odor, and abnormal discharge - often related to bacterial vaginosis (BV). BiopHresh uses a formula set in a base of the most prevalent strains of vaginal lactobacilli, helping to create an environment where those beneficial bacteria can thrive.

Vaginal Microbiome Q&A
What is vaginal pH and why does it matter?
A healthy vaginal ecosystem is naturally self-cleaning and has one of the lowest pH ranges in the body (3.5-4.5). Discomfort, abnormal odor, or irregular discharge are often associated with a pH imbalance. An elevated pH can leave the vaginal microbiome susceptible to bacterial or other infections.
Can pH imbalance lead to vaginal issues?
Harmful bacteria thrive when vaginal pH is elevated. Those are often the cause of itch, irritation, abnormal odor, and other health concerns. BiopHresh® Homeopathic Vaginal Suppository and Flourish Vaginal Care System® help address bacterial issues by supporting a healthy pH level and delivering billions of beneficial bacteria called lactobacilli, including L. crispatus which are commonly associated with vaginal health.
How does increased vaginal pH occur?
Many common situations can disrupt an optimal vaginal ecosystem - including intimacy, menstruation, exercise, exposure to harsh chemicals, medications, medical treatments, low estrogen levels, and more. Bacterial Vaginosis or other vaginal microbiome changes can occur when that sensitive pH balance is disrupted, often resulting in dryness, discomfort, and abnormal odor that can impact a woman's overall health, self-confidence, and intimate relationships.
What is a microbiome?
The microbiome is the combination of all the microorganisms that live in or on the body, along with the “host” - the body itself. More casually, all the bacteria and yeasts that live on our skin, in our mouth, in our gut, in the vagina, in the nasal cavity, and other places are thought of as our microbiota, or “flora”. In most healthy women, the vaginal microbiome is dominated by one of a few species of Lactobacillus: L. crispatus, L. jensenii, L. gasseri, and L. iners. A woman’s vaginal microbiome interacts with her body’s immune system in ways we are just beginning to understand.
What are lactobacilli?
Lactobacilli are a variety of beneficial bacteria which occur naturally in a healthy vagina. They produce lactic acid and other compounds that suppress competitive pathogens that lead to vaginal symptoms. BiopHresh® introduces more than 5 billion cells of beneficial lactobacilli, which support the vaginal environment as the active homeopathic ingredients trigger healing of vaginal tissues irritated by infection. The entire process is what allows BiopHresh to effectively relieve recurring symptoms of BV. BiopHresh supports the vaginal microbiome with bacteria most closely associated with good health.
What is Bacterial Vaginosis? How is it treated?
Bacterial vaginosis – or BV for short – is a condition in which the healthiest bacterial species are no longer the dominant species in the vagina, and other bacteria grow in greater numbers. Symptoms of BV include having more vaginal discharge than usual, with a color that may vary from white to gray to light yellow. The discharge may have an unpleasant odor. Women may experience vaginal irritation/burning or itching. Some women have no noticeable symptoms. Current medical guidelines call for treating symptomatic BV with metronidazole or other antibiotics. These treatments are usually successful, but unfortunately, BV recurs within 3 months to a year most of the time. Many women experience recurrent BV throughout their lives. Diagnosis should be confirmed by a healthcare provider prior to any treatment.
What does Bio-Match® mean?
The principle of Bio-Match® is the concept of matching a product as closely as possible to the body’s natural, healthy condition. For Good Clean Love®, this means making products with the right pH, osmolality, and lactic acid levels to match healthy vaginal fluid. We believe that by creating healthy conditions, the body is better able to do what they need to do to be healthy.
