Christina Enzmann
MD, PhD, NMCP, FACOG

Dr. Christina C. Enzmann, is a board-certified OB/GYN, originally trained and employed in Germany at the well-known University-Clinic-Hamburg-Eppendorf. During her first years as a young physician, she had the rare opportunity to be trained in gyneco pathology and cytology, serving as a liaison between the department of OB/Gyn and Pathology, taking part in the cervical dysplasia clinic. Observing things closely, and often under a microscope, has long since been her passion. Her interest in surface cells and their function was further realized through her doctoral thesis in pediatric dermatology, in which she examined measurable skin parameters in newborns throughout their first three months of life, and their correlation with environmental factors and intrauterine exposures. It was during this time that she was able to examine the disruptive effects of bar soaps and detergents on the skin and mucosal membranes.

    Elizabeth O'Hanlon
    Sr. R&D Scientist - Advanced Bioprocessing

    Elizabeth O'Hanlon's interest in the role of the vaginal microbiota in women’s sexual and reproductive health began as a graduate student in the lab of Dr. Richard Cone (Johns Hopkins University), a pioneer researcher in the field. Her graduate and post-graduate research focused on how the best kind of vaginal microbiota gives a woman better protection against reproductive tract infections, and how carelessly formulated vaginal products can make it harder for a woman to keep the best kind of vaginal microbiota. Findings from these studies contributed to the decision to formulate some Good Clean Love products with lactic acid at low pH and with bio-matched osmolality (water content). As a faculty researcher (University of Maryland School of Medicine) she continued to study protective vaginal microbiotas and expanded her research to look at how an unbalanced vaginal microbiota (bacterial vaginosis, BV) affects a woman’s resistance to other reproductive tract infections, including sexually transmitted infections and perinatal infections. In her current role as a senior R&D scientist (Advanced Bioprocessing Division, ThermoFisher Scientific), Elizabeth's work includes developing better materials and methods for the production and testing of probiotics and prebiotics to treat imbalances of the vaginal and intestinal microbiotas.
