Zestica Moisture

How It Works
Return to the top

Zestica Moisture® replenishes the Hyaluronic Acid balance and much needed water to provide immediate relief and comfort.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring key component of vaginal fluid the body uses as a natural carrier of water to retain moisture.

5 consecutive days of use results in an accumulative affect that can last for days beyond last use.

Zestica Moisture® is specially formulated utilizing two different lengths of HA molecules:
  • Shorter molecules of HA release water immediately for instant relief
  • Longer HA molecules gradually break down to deliver a second wave of moisture

It is a very light formulation designed to make you feel "natural" and comfortable again.

Zestica Moisture is clear, odourless, non-sticky and easy to use. Designed to work in harmony with your body.

The Science of HA

Zestica Moisture® contains the natural ingredient Hyaluronic Acid (HA) with a combination of different molecular weights to sustain its stability in the vaginal environment.

HA is a super-water absorbent with natural moisturisation functionality which makes it a fantastic lubricant with a well proven safety profile.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a Natural Substance

HA is a natural, high molecular weight polysaccharide (Figure). Its chemical structure is uniform throughout nature, across vertebrates and invertebrates, making it highly biocompatible and non-immunogenic. Ubiquitous HA is present in many tissues (epithelial, connective, neural) and fluids (vaginal, cervical, synovial, aqueous humour), and exhibits unusual physico-chemical characteristics because of its random coil structure, large size, and strong affinity for water. HA's hydrophilic nature and unique rheological properties allow it to form solutions of high viscosity and elasticity that provide protective, space-filling, shock-absorbing, lubricating and moisturizing functions (maintenance of water balance). The macromolecule serves as a substrate for assembly and stabilization of proteoglycans; promotes cell movement; regulates cell function, differentiation, and development; scavenges free radicals; and participates in wound healing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Return to the top

What is the Osmolality and pH of Zestica Moisture®?
Zestica Moisture is iso-osmotic with the normal physiologic range (280-290 mOsm/kg) for fluids of the female reproductive tract, and the product is formulated to pH5 for optimal vaginal health in menopausal and post-menopausal women.
How should I store Zestica Moisture®?
Zestica Moisture® should be kept at room temperature, 5-30°C. Do not place in extreme temperatures such as in a fridge or directly exposed to sunlight.
What are the ingredients in Zestica Moisture®?
The ingredients in Zestica Moisture™ are:
Sodium Hyaluronate (HA)
Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS)

PBS balances the pH of Zestica Moisture® with that of the body. The normal vaginal pH is acidic. Phenoxyethanol and Methylparaben are commonly used preservatives, present at very low levels.
Is the applicator recyclable?
The recyclable symbol (with a "4" in the middle) on the applicator shows that the applicator is made of a Low density polyethylene (LDPE). LDPE is a soft, flexible plastic. It is typically found in a variety of plastic bags including: bread bags, frozen food bags and plastic shopping bags. Though LDPE can be recycled, traditionally it has not been included in municipal recycling programs. However, more and more it is being added as an accepted plastic to Canada's municipal recycling programs. There are no health concerns connected to LDPE.
Is Zestica Moisture® made with any animal products?
Zestica Moisture® is not made with any animal product.

When and How To Use
