Gengigel doesn’t sound that familiar, does it? It is not widely advertised on the media that’s why. I, myself, haven’t heard of Gengigel Hyaluronic Acid until my dentist introduced it to me. This product is something I personally like to keep in my medical cabinet at home.
I’ve had a ton (if not a hundred) cases of mouth ulcers (singaw in Tagalog) in the past and I’ve never really found something that works wonders for them. Powdered tawas works but it comes with agonizing pain. Gengigel doesn’t hurt when applied to any wounds in the mouth. That factor is what I like the most about it, of course on top of the fact that it does what its label says.

The Science Behind Gengigel
Gengigel contains 0.2% Hyaluronic Acid (HA). What HA does is it regulates cell turnover and optimizes tissue regeneration in the mouth. HA also functions as a barrier to inflamed and wounded oral tissues.
On top of HA and Xylitol (two of its key medicinal ingredients). Gengigel also contains Water, cellulose gum, PEG40 hydrogenated castor oil, alcohol, polyvinyl alcohol, polycarbophil, 2,4 dichlorobenzyl alcohol, sodium hydroxyde, CI 42090.
How I Discovered this Product
As I mentioned earlier, I get a lot of mouth ulcers. I’ve had braces for years and that was a factor as to why I’ve had a ton of wounds in the mouth. One time when I went to my dentist for my regular braces adjustment. He saw a huge cluster of mouth ulcers on my lips. He immediately applied Gengigel on the sores and recommended me to use the gel 3-4 times a day. He made me buy the thing but it was pricey. It costed 250.00 PHP for a 1ml pack.
I bought the product and was glad that it actually worked. The only downside is that it costs a lot. I went to the drugstores to ask if they have Gengigel stocks but to my disappointment, they don’t. Thankfully, I found that you can buy Gengigel online at a much lower price (in comparison to my dental clinic). You have two options, 1ml pack and 20ml tube. I used to buy the 1ml packs but they’re for single usage. Now, I’ve been stocking on the 20ml tube since I’ve realized it saves me a lot of money.
Where to buy Gengigel in the Philippines?

Does Gengigel actually work?
Absolutely YES. I highly recommend this product as I’ve personally tested it. I wouldn’t recommend you anything that doesn’t work for me. Like Daktarin Oral Gel which didn’t work for me. You can read my experience with Daktarin on this article.
