This award winning menstrual cup is a great sustainable alternative to using disposable tampons or pads. It is free from any toxic chemicals which can often be found in menstrual products which can have an adverse affect on your health. It is made from soft, medical grade silicone, and while tampons can absorb 35% of vaginal moisture, the Mooncup wont dry you out or leave fibres behind. We can spend around £1200 on average on tampons so this will also help you save a lot of money in the long run.
What is a Menstrual Cup?
A menstrual cup is a small, foldable, reusable device made from silicone, rubber or plastic that collects, rather than absorbs, the menstrual blood when inserted into the vagina. Mooncup is the first medical grade silicone menstrual cup in the world.

About The Brand
Mooncup has a great story, it started in 1999 when Eileen heard about a reusable menstrual cup from a friend. Back then cups were made of tougher rubber, were hard to come by and often had latex in them.
In 2000 Eileen met Su and shared the secret about menstrual cups. he environmental & practical advantages of a reusable menstrual cup struck a perfect chord with Su. The secret had landed in the right hands. Su and Eileen found themselves in a lifelong friendship and with a purpose that they’d eventually work together for.
On her return to the UK, Su started selling an imported rubber cup to friends and friends-of-friends and soon realised that she wasn’t the only one ready for a better menstrual product. When friends reported some discomfort and the symptoms of latex allergy, Su realised that the rubber cup wasn’t quite the perfect solution. Her childhood with an entrepreneurial Dad got her inventive spark firing. After extensive research, she came up with a hypoallergenic alternative; medical grade silicone; and, in the Spring of 2002, Mooncup®, the world’s first reusable silicone menstrual cup was born.
Why Lucy Loves
I still see myself as a new user of the mooncup having only had it for a couple of months. To begin with I had many questions and doubts that it wouldn't be comfortable, easy to use and affective but making this switch is one of the best things I've done since becoming more sustainable and I wonder why I didn't do it sooner. When nearly 30,000 used tampons & applicators get washed up onto the world's beaches on a single day I knew I wanted to offer a great product which would help women have a sustainable period.
