If you’re suffering from pain and discomfort in your most sensitive areas, you may think there are few gentle but effective remedies.
Enter: Julva. Formulated by triple-board certified OBGYN Dr. Anna Cabeca, Julva is an all-natural, anti-aging cosmetic cream for your feminine parts. Why do we love this particular cream? Let’s start with the ingredients, which include the hormone DHEA, as well as natural emollients like coconut oil, vitamin E, shea butter, and emu oil.
DHEA helps to restore vaginal health and combats dryness and discomfort, while ultra-hydrating, natural emollients deliver powerful anti-aging properties. Dr. Cabeca developed Julva over three years, ultimately coming up with a non-prescription topical solution with anti-aging benefits.
What can you use Julva for? It’s effective for:
- Vaginal dryness and discomfort
- Pain during intercourse
- Urinary leakage
- Improving skin elasticity and vaginal tightening
- Reigniting libido and passion
Sexual satisfaction is important, but so too is vaginal health outside of your love life. Take care of all of your total vaginal health with Julva.
Active Ingredient: Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
Alpine Rose Stem Cells (Rhododendron Ferrugineum Leaf Cell Culture Extract)
Vitamin E Tocopherol
Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit
Undecyl Alcohol (anti-microbial)
For best results, start by applying ⅛ teaspoon of Julva to the vulva, clitoris and surrounding skin. Use it daily — morning or evening, whatever works — for one month or until you achieve your desired results. After this, you can drop down to five applications a week.
You can apply Julva as needed prior to intercourse, about 20 minutes before. Wash hands thoroughly after applying to avoid transferring it to others. You can also use tissue paper to apply Julva.
The recommended dose is ⅛ teaspoon of Julva daily. If you don’t see results after one month of use, increase to ¼ teaspoon. We do not recommend exceeding this dose.
You’ll need to continue using this product at a maintenance dose to retain the benefits.
You may feel a warming or tingling sensation at first. If this sensation persists for more than 20 minutes, half the dose. If the sensation recurs, discontinue use.
If pregnant or breastfeeding, consult with your doctor before using this product.
If you are taking the prescription Tamoxifen, do not use this product.
If you have a vaginal infection, consult with your doctor before using this product.
If you have had or are being treated for breast cancer, consult with your doctor before using this product.
Keep out of the reach of children.
The hormone DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is the key active ingredient in Julva. Like testosterone, DHEA is an androgen. Such hormones improve many of the body’s functions, including the integrity and elasticity of skin, muscle growth and repair, and bone strength. DHEA also plays a role in maintaining libido, sexual desire, and sexual function
Over many years in her own practice, Dr. Cabeca noticed how effective topical applications of DHEA was for improving symptoms of vaginal atrophy (vaginal thinning, dryness, and inflammation). Not only did topical DHEA help with vaginal pain and dryness, but also incontinence. Physical examinations revealed notable tissue improvements, too.
Applied vaginally, DHEA has been proven to:
- Reduce vaginal dryness and irritation
- Improve skin health and appearance
- Strengthen vaginal musculature
- Increase bone mineral density
- Decrease pain during intercourse
- Increase arousal and libido, as well as sexual satisfaction
Ultimately, Dr. Cabeca developed Julva with much clinical evidence backing the use of topical DHEA for vaginal issues. And while Julva has been a great tool for improving the sex lives of many women, the health of the vagina extends beyond sex.
In fact, women suffering from vaginal atrophy are at risk for a number of things, like:
- More frequent urinary tract infections
- Discomfort during once-enjoyed activities, like bike rides, gardening, etc.
- Declining hormone levels
- Poor blood circulation
Julva is a proven, science-backed approach to improve total vaginal health.
