/PRNewswire/ -- Good Clean Love, the renowned natural personal care products company, has launched a first-of-its-kind resource for Women's Health. The Sexual Health and Wellness Institute (SHWI)
is a non-profit organization providing a platform for ongoing research and to give context to truth in advertising as it relates to patient safety.
The Sexual Health and Wellness Institute (SHWI)
is an unprecedented resource for medical providers with the latest independent research and product safety information to better serve their patients, as well as scientifically-backed information to increase awareness about women's sexual health issues.
"There is a gap in vaginal health education access to research and resources compared to other reproductive specific health research. As a result, physicians are often not armed with the latest research about women's sexual health which impacts our methods for treatment," said Dr. Sonia Bahlani
, "and there is the additional challenge of continuing education for physicians once new research is developed."
Despite the historical gap in research and education, it is starting to shift with acknowledgment of market size and importance, highlighted by recent news that the global sexual wellness market is expected to reach values of around $39 billion
The Sexual Health and Wellness Institute will serve as a place for practitioners to order samples of products to help with various conditions, to provide resources, education, and evidence-based information regarding women's sexual health. It will also bring awareness to misleading advertising practices in the personal care space, particularly in the sexual health market.
There is a lot of misinformation and many false claims of products being "natural" and curative. "It is challenging for both Medical professionals and consumers alike to know what is actually safe," explained Wendy Strgar
, founder of Good Clean Love. "My goal with the institute is to help educate health care practitioners who make recommendations to women about what to put in or on their bodies. We are driven by scientific research and I am proud to be a leader when it comes to both scientific innovation and transparency about our ingredients."
Good Clean Love has donated more than one million sample products through partnerships with thousands of medical practitioners. These products help people suffering from symptoms related to a variety of conditions including vaginal dryness, irritation, atrophy, and dyspareunia. The Sexual Health and Wellness Institute will serve the broader mission to increase the quantity and quality of loving relationships on the planet by providing educational resources and products with healthy ingredients.
