On application, patients report a out (molecular filtration) and concentrated. The compound can slight stinging or burning sensation after application which is therefore be quality controlled. 0.8mg/g ploymannose is the transient within a few minutes. This sensation has been identified as standard quality concentration used for the 2QR complex. a response to the different pH values. Multi-Gyn® Actigel has a pH of 4.1 - 4.3. Persons with bacterial vaginosis often have an abnormally high pH > 5. Also in cases of tissue damage, the mild Clinical testing acidity may cause a burning sensation. A special type of in vitro test model was developed to determine the Indications time-frame in which the blocking of the adhesive mechanism of the pathogens takes place. Samples of the microbial flora were taken Prevents and treats bacterial vaginosis from human volunteers. The samples were prepared in the lab, and Reduces unpleasant odour and discharge several dilutions of the “2QR” active component were added. The Has a direct soothing effect on itch and irritations dilutions where selected based on the percentages as used in the Provides direct relief of common vaginal discomforts Multi-Gyn® Active Gel.
