How RepHresh Gel Maintains Healthy pH
RepHresh Gel is applied with a pre-filled applicator directly to the source of the problem inside the vagina. RepHresh Gel is not a messy cream like other vaginal products, instead it is a clear gel that clings to the vaginal wall and stays in place for up to 5 days. No pantyliner required!
RepHresh Gel creates a buffer that maintains a healthy 3.5-4.5 vaginal pH – even when higher pH fluids come in contact with the vagina, such as menstrual fluids, semen and some feminine hygiene products. One application of RepHresh Gel provides long-lasting benefits, lasting up to 5 days.

Importance of Vaginal pH
Your vaginal pH plays a very important role in keeping your body healthy and balanced. A vaginal pH of 3.5 to 4.5 is ideal for beneficial bacteria and creates a hostile environment for pathogenic bacteria. Healthy pH helps beneficial bacteria to thrive and inhibits overgrowths of yeast and pathogenic bacteria.
When pH becomes elevated, the environment shifts in favor of the pathogenic bacteria. This can allow pathogenic bacteria to cause odor, irritation and infection. Elevated pH is one of the key factors doctors look for when diagnosing vaginal infections. Maintaining vaginal pH within the healthy range can help reduce risk of vaginal issues.
