AUSTIN — To help women suffering with genital herpes, the FemiClear brand has released new FemiClear for Genital Herpes Symptoms to relieve the symptoms of genital herpes outbreaks. This innovative new product is backed by both an in vitro (laboratory) and in vivo (human) study and is now available at CVS stores nationwide.
New FemiClear for Genital Herpes Symptoms was tested by an independent accredited U.S.-based laboratory using ASTM standards. These studies demonstrated that FemiClear for Genital Herpes Symptoms kills 99.9% of both the herpes simplex I & II viruses. Next, in an IRB-approved study of over 50 women who were diagnosed and actively experiencing a genital herpes outbreak, over 90% of the participants reported less severe symptoms: less itching, pain and burning – compared to their typical outbreak.
This pioneering new product is made from a proprietary process that uses oxygenated olive oil and other natural and organic ingredients to create a highly antiviral substrate. FemiClear is the first widely-available over-the-counter option for genital herpes symptoms.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that HSV-2 (Herpes Simplex Virus II) infects 1 in 6 U.S. women aged 14 to 49. In addition, more and more cases of genital herpes are being caused by HSV-1, the virus that commonly causes cold sores. This is likely due to oral sex. Despite advances in prescription antiviral medications, many women continue to experience outbreaks with symptoms that can make them miserable, including tingling, itching, pain and burning.
Caroline Goodner, CEO of OrganiCare says, “We’ve innovated to help reduce the uncomfortable symptoms many women experience with an outbreak. Our new FemiClear for Genital Herpes Symptoms is a breakthrough, over-the-counter product to help relieve outbreak symptoms – itching, burning and pain. It doesn’t cure herpes of course (since there is no cure), nor should it replace antiviral prescription medication, but it can help make outbreak symptoms more tolerable. Most of the women who used it in a recent study reported quick relief and less severe symptoms. Many were delighted to learn it was made with all-natural and organic ingredients. The results of this study exceeded our expectations.”
FemiClear is on a mission to eliminate the stigma of genital herpes and remove the psychological barriers to treatment. It is no surprise that conversations around genital herpes can be embarrassing and this societal mindset can prevent women from seeking out treatment that can help them get back to their lives. With such a large percentage of women suffering from genital herpes, FemiClear wants to start a conversation that helps women talk about their condition and make them feel empowered to seek the relief they crave.
Goodner says, “The FemiClear brand is committed to destigmatizing taboo topics in women’s health by bringing effective solutions that are backed by science and are made with all-natural and organic ingredients. Genital herpes, for example, is far more prevalent than most people realize, with 1 in 6 women having it. Let’s stop being ashamed to talk about it.”
