Ellen’s history

Ellen AB is a Swedish biotech company that was founded in 2000. Many years of research in microbiology and partnerships with several universities are the bedrock of Ellen’s proprietary products. During the 1990s, scientists identified various strains of lactic acid bacteria that are naturally found in the vagina of healthy women.

In 2003, Ellen was the first company in the world to offer women a tampon treated with lactic acid bacteria. Our probiotic tampon releases lactic acid bacteria (lactobacillus bacteria) into the vagina to maintain a healthy vaginal flora.

Lacto Naturel (LN®) – a vagina’s best friend

A healthy vaginal flora of lactic acid bacteria is key to good vaginal health. Ellen’s proprietary products contain Lacto Naturel (LN),  a combination of lactic acid bacteria from three strains: L. fermentum LN99, L. rhamnosus LN113 and L. gasseri LN40. These strains are naturally found inside the vaginas of healthy women.
