Promensil are experts in menopause support, providing a range of natural red clover supplements for long term management, and a cooling spray for instant relief from hot flushes and night sweats.

Promensil Red Clover Isoflavones help balance female hormones by mimicking the action of oestrogen in the body, which in turn help support women during the menopause. Unlike other red clover supplements, Promensil is backed by over 15 years of scientific research and uses only a standardised patented extraction process to guarantee purity and quantity of Red Clover isoflavones at the optimal levels (40-80mg). Promensil Cooling Spray is the most versatile product in the range and can be used alongside any menopause treatment including HRT. The spray works using rapid evaporation technology which draws heat away from the skin, offering instant relief for hot flushes and night sweats.

*9/10 women agree Promensil works for them!

Sylk Intimate

Vaginal dryness is a common condition that will affect many women at some point in their lives. Many women experience vaginal dryness during the menopause. However, women may also suffer from the condition when starting a hormone based contraception, using tampons for the first time, and during pregnancy and breast feeding due to reduced oestrogen levels. Additionally, health conditions such as diabetes, bladder and incontinence problems or reactions to drug therapies like Tamoxifen and Anastrozole used in cancer treatment can contribute to vaginal dryness.

Sylk Intimate lubricant is highly effective at relieving vaginal dryness. Made with natural, plant based ingredients, Sylks’ unique female friendly formula is free from nasty chemicals, parabens and hormones. As such, it is kind and gentle to sensitive tissues.

Natural, plant based, intimate lubricant Sylk has launched a new single use Applicator Product. The much anticipated Sylk Applicator provides an instant boost of hydration and lubrication. Designed with women in mind, the pack of six single use applicators each pre filled with a generous 3ml of Sylk is convenient, easy to use.

Sylk 40g bottle is available in larger Boots stores from February 2019.
