For most of our lives, we don’t give much thought to our intimate skin. Then menopause comes along and everything changes. Our estrogen levels drop, and the moisture in our skin disappears right alongside it. Vulvar skin is left feeling intensely dry, itchy, and incredibly uncomfortable. But we’re here to tell you, you don’t have to just live with it!
For intimate skin that’s thinning, dry, itchy or otherwise irritated, there’s nothing better than Rescue Balm. Our best-selling cream for external vaginal dryness is the solution you’ve been looking for. Here’s what you need to know.
Are there any natural cures for female dryness?
Often, intimate dryness is a result of hormonal changes, like the low estrogen levels that come with menopause, breastfeeding, pregnancy, postpartum, or certain medical treatments. There are many options to combat vulvar and vaginal dryness, and if you’re looking to go the all-natural route, coconut oil may be the first thing that comes to mind. While this natural oil may work wonders for some, for others it simply isn’t enough. And, if you’re someone who shaves or waxes, the comedogenic properties of coconut oil can lead to ingrown hairs or even folliculitis. That’s why we created Rescue Balm - it’s 92% naturally-derived and concentrated with ultra-rich moisturizing ingredients that soothe and protect even the driest intimate skin and without coconut oil.
What makes Rescue Balm so great?
If you’ve ever experienced intense intimate dryness like the kind that comes along before, during and after menopause, you may have found topical gel and lotion formulas just don’t seem to get the job done. Many creams for vaginal dryness are mostly made of water, which means your skin isn’t getting much out of them. Rescue Balm is water-free and ultra-concentrated with skincare superstars like colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, allantoin and sweet almond oil to deliver maximum skin benefits.
But you don’t have to take our word for it! The 5-star reviews from our customers speak for themselves.
“I have tried many products including RX meds and this is the only product that works for my extreme post menopausal itch and burning. Only need a little bit and after 1st use was noticeably better and after 2nd use complete relief! After about a week, I noticed a slight itch and applied again for 1 day and itch gone. If I have to use this product occasionally the rest of my life, it is certainly worth not suffering any longer. A little goes a long way and what a joy to finally find something that works as I have been suffering for over 12 years!!!”

Does Rescue Balm help with vaginal dryness?
Vaginal dryness is not to be confused with external vulvar dryness. Remember, the vagina is on the inside and the vulva is on the outside. Vaginal dryness is common during perimenopause, menopause and postmenopause and can cause pain or discomfort, especially during sex. If you’re experiencing vaginal dryness, consult with your medical provider for treatment options.
Can I use Rescue Balm with other treatments?
We are sticklers for clean, vulva-safe ingredients. Because Rescue Balm is made with gentle, non-irritating ingredients and without estrogen or other hormones, it can safely be used as a complement to prescription-based treatments like topical steroids and hormone replacement therapy. Plus, it’s safety tested and approved by both gynecologists and dermatologists.
