Mooncup is the world’s first hypoallergenic silicone menstrual cup, originally founded by a pair of British ladies fed up with mainstream menstrual products, and who saw the health and environmental potential of earlier versions of menstrual cups made of rubber.
The average woman has around 400 menstrual periods in her lifetime, and as such, female sanitary products are big business – and might place a huge burden on the environment.
The cost to a woman’s health can also be high, with many mainstream tampons containing traces of dioxin, bleaches and other toxins that may leach into the body. Mooncup menstrual cups help solve all of these issues – they are reusable, can last around a decade, are made of non-leaching surgical grade silicone, and minimize the cost to the environment. Worn similarly to a tampon, they work by catching menstrual flow rather than absorbing it, meaning the vaginal environment is kept healthy and not dried out.
Mooncup can be used in any place and situation, are hygienic and simple to use, and come in two different sizes to suit all bodies.
