Vagisil launches new feminine hygiene product
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. As a brand leader in the feminine hygiene product market, Combe on Monday announced the introduction of Vagisil Satin — a fast-absorbing creme that provides quick and long-lasting relief from itch and irritation as it soothes and helps heal the skin.
“Whether at work, home or on the go, external vaginal discomfort not only causes physical stress, but also puts a damper on a woman’s mood and confidence level,” stated Adelaide Nardone, board certified OB/GYN.
According to the Journal of Urgent Care, vulvovaginitis is the cause of approximately 10 million office visits in the United States annually. Vulvovaginitis can be characterized by symptoms of itching, irritation, burning, redness, discharge and discomfort.
“These uncomfortable and sometimes painful symptoms affect women of all ages and are common gynecological concerns,” commented Jeanne Collins, Combe senior brand manager of marketing, feminine hygiene. “We are thrilled about the launch of Vagisil Satin as we continually strive to meet the needs of women by offering them a solution that immediately helps them feel more comfortable.”
Vagisil Satin contains 1% hydrocortisone acetate and provides 12 hours of relief from itch, discomfort and distraction.
FDA, FTC take action against fradulent ads of products for swine flu
ROCKVILLE, Md. The Food and Drug Administration and Federal Trade Commission have taken action against Web sites that advertise fraudulent products for the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus, popularly known as swine flu.
The two agencies urged the public Friday to be wary of Web sites and other promotions for products that claim to diagnose, prevent, mitigate, treat or cure the virus and advising companies that operate the Web sites that they must take prompt action to correct or remove promotions of the products lest they face enforcement action.
“Consumers who purchase products to treat the novel 2009 H1N1 virus that are not approved, cleared or authorized by the FDA for the treatment or prevention of influenza risk their health and the health of their families,” FDA acting associate commissioner for regulatory affairs Michael Chappell said in a statement. “In conjunction with the Federal Trade Commission, the FDA has developed an aggressive strategy to identify, investigate and take regulatory or criminal action against individuals and businesses that wrongfully promote purported 2009 H1N1 influenza products in an attempt to take advantage of the current flu public health emergency.”
