The products include Roll-On Cooling Gel and Body Cooling Towelettes for hot flashes; Personal Lubricant for, you know; Panty Fresheners; and Feminine Wash."Fifty million women across North America are approaching or experiencing menopause, but until now there has been no suite of consumer products that helps them cope on a daily basis," said Rebecca Dunphey, Poise brand director at Kimberly-Clark, in a statement. "The Poise Feminine Wellness line is specifically designed to help women approach this life stage with confidence. These products are a natural extension for the Poise brand, which millions of women already rely on for discrete protection from light bladder leakage."
