How did Sophy come about?
I have been working as a gynecologist for more than 30 years and during this time I have conducted more than 150.000 examinations. By listening to the patients' problems and looking at the skin of the intimate region every day, I realized that this region has not been nourished and no care product has ever been used on this part of the skin since the diapers were left behind.
All the same, this particular region has exactly the same sensitivity as the facial skin. First, the skin acidity of this region is very specific. The ideal pH of this region is 4.2 as it has much more acidity than other parts of the skin in order to prevent vaginal infection. This pH is very difficult to sustain. This region is also exposed to everyday irritation, from going to the toilet, sexual intercourse to major stress of childbirth. All this leads to the skin of this part getting older faster, losing elasticity earlier, getting dry and darkening over time.
I wanted to create a daily care solution that would just provide better moisture, constant pH and better energy supply and extend the life span of these cells. It took more than 4 years of examining patients, reading published papers and conducting experiments to come up with the right formula. I made a decision to use exclusively the natural ingredients that can be found in food and which have proven beneficial effects on the skin. We selected arginine, turmeric, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid and lactic acid. These ingredients have different structure and it is very difficult for some of them, such as hyaluronic acid, to penetrate the skin due to the size of the molecules. The answer to this problem was found in a laboratory in the Netherlands that specializes in the production of liposomal products. Liposomes are special spheres whose outer appearance is identical to the membranes of the human cells, and the interior of these small balls is filled with aqueous solutions. Using special nanotechnology, our active ingredients are inserted into the liposomes which ensure their easy penetration into skin, retainment and activation of their functions.
We tested Sophy on a large number of women and the results were outstanding. The ideal pH of the skin was achieved, the feeling of hydration and elasticity retrieved, and the sexual intercourses were significantly facilitated with remarkably improved experience.
So, this is the story of Sophy, truly inspired by the need of making life easier and more enjoyable for women, and the desire to contribute to their better intimate health and delayed aging. Sophy is made for everlasting youth.
