NEW YORK Lil' Drug Store Products has launched a "brilliant" feminine protection product.
New RepHresh Brilliant tampons reduce the pH increase that occurs during a woman's period.
"In healthy women, vaginal pH is typically 3.5 to 4.5 and blood has a pH of 7.4, so during a woman's period, pH is elevated by menstrual fluids. Tampons retain the fluids that cause pH to increase. RepHresh Brilliant is the first tampon clinically shown to reduce the usual pH increase," said Lauren Streicher, assistant clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology.
