A menstrual cup is a small, foldable, reusable device that collects, rather than absorbs, the menstrual blood when inserted into the vagina. Mooncup® is the brand name of a menstrual cup: the first medical grade silicone menstrual cup in the world.
The Mooncup® is a soft, silicone menstrual cup that you can reuse every time you get your period.
Tried and trusted since 2002 by users around the world, the Mooncup menstrual cup offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.
It was designed by women as a convenient, safe and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and pads. The Mooncup was the first ever menstrual cup to be made from medical grade silicone; a hypoallergenic alternative to rubber which had previously been linked to latex allergies.
The Mooncup is 5cm long and has a ‘stem’ to help with removal. As vaginal length varies, the stem of the Mooncup is designed to be trimmed if needed.
The Mooncup is a healthy and convenient alternative to tampons and pads which saves you money too. It’s great for swimming, sports and overnight use and because it’s designed to last for years, it’s an easy way to dramatically reduce the waste you produce.
Some of the benefits that make the Mooncup menstrual cup so unique include:
- A pioneering period brand, smashing the menstrual taboo since 2002.
- The highest quality standards: ISO 13485 certified and registered with the FDA.
- Made in the UK by the first sanitary product manufacturer in the world to be certified as an ethical business.
- Unique telephone and email Advice Service run by medical health professionals.
