IsoFresh is Isotonic - the GOLD Standard for Matching Vaginal Tissue!
IsoFresh provides safe, gentle odor control because it is isotonic to vaginal tissues. That's great, but what does isotonic mean?
IsoFresh has a salt concentration that matches the salt concentration of vaginal cells. Other commercially available freshening gels and douches are
hypotonic or hypertonic (with too low or too high of a salt concentration relative to vaginal tissues), and cause water to be sucked out, or pushed into,
the vaginal cells. This forced movement of water changes vaginal cell shape and biology, leading to irritation, tissue damage and disruptions of the
vaginal ecosystem. Unlike these other products, IsoFresh won't pull or push water in or out of vaginal cells. Instead, IsoFresh rehydrates your vaginal
tissues to a normal, healthy level, and helps to maintain the integrity and health of your vaginal cell structure and ecosystem. IsoFresh provides safe and
A Message from Dr. Joanna Ellington, Inventor of IsoFresh:
"Most women experience unwanted, embarrassing feminine odor from time to time. For
me this happens with the stress of long distance air travel. I have tried other non-isotonic
freshening products and found them to be irritating and messy. I developed IsoFresh to
be the first isotonic freshening gel matched to the cells in a woman's body. IsoFresh stays
put and provides fresh balance for the long haul! IsoFresh doesn't mask odors, it works
from the inside out to support a healthy vaginal ecosystem. I am very excited about this
new product and look forward to hearing from other women about how using IsoFresh
helps them have a more confident day!"
Why Choose a Douche Alternative?
Although doctors advise against douching, many women still feel the urge to get that "clean" feeling. Washing out your vaginal mucus "armor", however,
results in 5-8 times higher HIV and STD infection rates. Without mucus protection, vaginal cells have been found to be more rapidly infected by the HIV virus. (Shen et al., 2011). The National Institutes of Health warns women against douching because of increased risk of cancer, infection,
and infertility in women who douche. IsoFresh is a pure, simple, and safe natural douche alternative with ingredients to support self-cleaning. Don't Wash

Can I Use IsoFresh While I am Trying to Conceive?
IsoFresh Balancing Gel can be helpful to women who are trying to conceive. The increased exposure to semen during the fertile period can tax the vagina's self-cleaning and balancing mechanisms. If your vaginal ecosystem is healthy, chances are it can regain pH balance back to a low acidic pH (~4 pH) on its own. But anything that disrupts our hormone system (PCOS, medications, stress, toxins, smoking, and weight changes) can make it harder for the vaginal ecosystem to bounce back. Constant exposure to a neutral pH (~7 pH) can eventually overwhelm the acidic environment and lead to unwanted feminine odors and vaginal infections. IsoFresh gives the vagina extra help to attain a healthy pH level between fertile periods so you can move forward on your journey to conception and a healthy pregnancy. And, remember, as you approach ovulation, the pH of your vagina naturally increases due to the production of fertile quality cervical fluid, which has a pH of close to 7. IsoFresh should not be used during your fertile window, the 4 or 5 days immediately preceding ovulation. During your fertile window, be sure to use a sperm friendly lubricant.
How Does IsoFresh Work?
A healthy vaginal ecosystem maintains a pH of 4-4.5. Throughout your monthly cycle, your vagina will come into contact with body fluids with a much higher pH. For example, semen, menstrual blood, and fertile quality cervical fluid (the mucus you produce during ovulation) all have typical pH levels around 7. If you have a healthy vaginal ecosystem, your vagina can self-clean and maintain a pH of 4-4.5, despite encountering these higher pH fluids.
But, when your typical vaginal pH is off kilter, the wrong kind of bacteria take up residence and flourish in the vagina. For some women, this imbalance can result in bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections. These bacteria can release the embarrassing fishy smell when the vagina is exposed to one of the higher pH fluids mentioned. It becomes clear that solving for odor control must not disrupt the vaginal ecosystem and its ability to self-clean or a woman will end up in a recurring cycle of problems. Unfortunately, douches and other freshening gels contain parabens and other harsh chemicals, and can end up doing more harm than good.
IsoFresh Balancing Vaginal Gel uses a natural buffering system to bring the vaginal pH back into a healthy range after exposure to higher pH fluids - without doing harm to the vaginal ecosystem in the process.
All of the Good Stuff, None of the Bad
With IsoFresh, you don't have to worry about doing more harm than good. Unlike other freshening products that contain chemicals such as parabens, glycerol
and oils that can cause tissue irritation, IsoFresh contains no oils, no glycerin, no hormones, and no parabens.
Also, Isofresh is unique for being 100% isotonic, so it keeps your vaginal cells properly hydrated and preserves cell structure and function. Other
freshening products and douches are hypertonic or hypotonic, meaning they pull water out, or push water into, vaginal cells, which results in damage to
cell structures and impacts cellular function, and causes tissue irritation.
IsoFresh, the first isotonic and paraben-free freshening gel, provides the safest, gentlest odor control available.
IsoFresh is a water-based formulation, containing:
a naturally occurring acid produced by friendly bacteria living in the vagina, helps maintain the pH of the vaginal ecosystem at around 4.
is the sodium salt of lactic acid, which helps keep the pH of the vagina in the desired range.
is salt - just like the salt you use on your food. It is included in IsoFresh to ensure that IsoFresh is 100% isotonic.
is a sugar that provides a building block for the formation of protective natural mucus and energy for healthy bacterial function. The xylose in IsoFresh is derived from raspberries.
is a pH adjusting agent, used to ensure that the pH of IsoFresh is about 4 - the same pH as a healthy vaginal ecosystem
has natural antibacterial activity - this helps to preserve the product naturally, meaning that IsoFresh does not require harsh chemical
preservatives like parabens
is a naturally occurring substance found in roses that helps preserve IsoFresh.
- Caprylyl glycol is a hydrating compound derived from caprylic acid — a natural fatty acid found in palm and coconut oils. This ingredient along with phenethyl alcohol have antimicrobial activity and are used in "self-preserving" formulas, so that harsh chemicals like parabens can be avoided.
How Often Should I Use IsoFresh?
Use IsoFresh every three days or so, or anytime you want to feel more confident about your vaginal freshness.
What to expect when using IsoFresh?
A healthy vagina "self-cleans" by exfoliating old cells and bad bacteria. Because IsoFresh supports your vagina's "self-cleaning" and rebalancing mechanisms, some women see an odorless, white discharge (looks a bit like wet toilet paper) up to 24 hours after application. This discharge is made up of exfoliated cells and is expected and normal, and the quantity of discharge you see following each application of IsoFresh will decreases with regular use of the product.
Isn't my vagina supposed to clean itself?
Yes, your vagina is designed to self-clean, but it can only do so when your vaginal ecosystem is healthy, with a pH in the correct range of 4-5. A variety of things can disrupt your vaginal pH, including your menstrual period, sweating, and sexual intercourse, and douching just makes matters worse by stripping away the protective mucus barrier and good bacteria that keep our vaginal ecosystem healthy - all of which can cause unwanted odor and a desire to feel more fresh. IsoFresh works with the vagina to support self-cleaning and eliminate the root causes of unwanted odor.
