Our leaders combine over 85 years of experience in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry.
Together our team launched the first vaginal pH modulator, a unique mechanism of action, to bring much-needed non-hormonal innovation to the contraceptive space with Phexxi® (lactic acid, citric acid and potassium bitartrate) vaginal gel.
In less than one year, and during a global pandemic, our leadership achieved dramatic growth in prescriptions, dispensed units and our prescriber base in a new contraception category that will disrupt and change the contraceptive space forever. This is only the beginning of the Evofem revolution.
