Mooncup - better than tampons

One woman can use more than 11,000 disposable sanitary products in a lifetime. The Mooncup is reusable: you only need one

Comfortable

Made from soft, medical-grade silicone, it’s so comfortable you can’t feel it’s there. While tampons absorb 35% vaginal moisture, the Mooncup won’t dry you out or leave fibres behind.

Convenient

Your Mooncup’s always there, ready. No last minute dash to the shops, no stockpiling different absorbency pads or tampons. The Mooncup frees you from having to throw away used products or carry bulky spares (whether smuggled up your sleeve as you head to the toilet or taking up backpack space on your travels) .

Reliable

Holding 3 x more than a regular tampon, the Mooncup gives you longer lasting protection on heavier days. And because it’s non-absorbent, it won’t cause dryness when your period’s light.

Money-saving

You only need one Mooncup that pays for itself after 6-8 months – you’re then saving that monthly spend on sanitary protection.

Gentle

Latex-free, hypoallergenic and containing no dyes, perfumes, BPA, phthalates, plastic, bleaches or toxins, the Mooncup menstrual cup is ideal if you have sensitive skin or allergies.

More than just a product

Once you’ve bought your Mooncup, we’re here for you if you need support. We offer a unique telephone and email Advice Service run by nurses. You can be assured that the Mooncup® is manufactured in the UK to the highest quality standards – Mooncup Ltd is ISO 13485 certified and is registered with the FDA. why-mooncup-mooncup_opt
