Updated: Jul 13, 2021

Kolorex® Empowers Women to Take Control of their Vaginal Health, Naturally

Did you know that 75% of women will experience thrush at least once in their life?

With a drive to reinvigorate the female intimate care space, leading natural healthcare brand, Kolorex®, are on a mission to provide consumers a natural alternative to typical female health products and give women confidence to unashamedly take control of their vaginal health.

Unlike any other vaginal health products on the market, Kolorex’s range is boosted with the functional power of the ancient native New Zealand plant, Horopito. Found only in forested parts of New Zealand, Horopito was traditionally used by New Zealand’s indigenous Maori population for various ailments, including toothache, ringworm, stomach aches, diarrhoea, headache and chest ailments.

Researcher and founder of Kolorex®, Peter Butler stumbled upon Horopito over 30 years ago, and was impressed by its powerful antifungal benefits. As a result, Butler established Kolorex in 1979, giving people around the world a natural alternative for support of Candida overgrowth.

“Kolorex® is the world’s only sustainable commercial processor of Horopito and we’re proud that we can take this ancient herb and empower women to take control of their vaginal health with a natural product. At Kolorex®, we’re on a mission to broadly celebrate the incredible ingredient of Horopito while simultaneously challenging the norm in the female health category globally.” said Peter Butler.

Recognised by industry experts including Naturopath Tia Miers, Kolorex® is known for its trusted products that work and are passionate about empowering women to seek natural alternatives. Tia added, “I’m thrilled to be working with Kolorex®, a natural product that is creating change in the women’s health and intimate care industry. With such a large percentage of women suffering from yeast infections, Kolorex® wants to end the stigma and embarrassment surrounding the topic and encourage women to take charge and open up about their intimate health needs. Together we’re excited to start the conversation and educate Australians, showing women there’s a herbal alternative they can explore, and reiterate that they’re not alone.”

Taking charge in the Australian market, Kolorex® products are 100% natural and free from synthetic preservatives and fragrances, mineral oils, parabens and animal products – just as nature intended.
