Mooncup, the original silicone menstrual cup
The first silicone Mooncup® (reusable menstrual cup) was launched in the spring of 2002. This pioneer of cups is a real success for all those who want an alternative to sanitary napkins and tampons. Supple, smooth and easy to position, the Mooncup has been designed for all women. Created in two sizes, this historic cup will suit all those who want to be totally free at every need!
Mooncup’s story dates back to 1999 when a cyclist told her secret about a reusable rubber menstrual cup. At the time, only adventurers bothered to use them. Rigid and sometimes far too uncomfortable, they had to evolve.
Eileen (the cyclist) meets Su in Australia and over the course of a conversation tells her about her secret of a reusable menstrual cup. Touched by the ecological, practical and health benefits, this secret will not fall on deaf ears. A strong friendship that day was created and will be the basis of the Mooncup birth.
On her return to the UK, Su sells the rubber cup to her close friends and she quickly realizes that many want to free themselves from tampons and pads and obtain better hygienic protection.
Discomfort and latex allergies are her friends' first quick returns. Her inventiveness and entrepreneurial agility put her on the path of the alternative of medical grade silicone. This hypoallergenic solution will give birth to the first Mooncup which has since become a worldwide success to the delight of millions of women around the globe!
