The Mooncup - known in the USA as MCUK - is the original silicone menstrual cup designed by women to be a convenient, safe and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and sanitary pads. Loved by women all around the world, and made in the UK by a multi-award winning ethical business, the Mooncup menstrual cup offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.


Made from soft medical grade silicone, the Mooncup is latex-free and contains no dyes, BPA, toxins or bleaches. It’s also great for women with sensitive skin.

Tampons can cause dryness and leave fibres behind. The Mooncup is designed to respect your natural balance.


On average, one woman will use over 11,000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, which will end up in landfill or in the sea.


One woman uses up to 22 items of sanitary protection every period. Regardless of your flow, you only need one Mooncup, and it lasts for years and years, making it the most economical sanitary product you can buy.

I found out about Mooncup a few years ago from my mum but initially dismissed it as being weird and difficult. But when I spent a year studying abroad in a country where tampons aren't widely available I decided to give it a try. The first few times using the cup were a bit difficult but I soon got used to it and I began to like it much more than tampons which were drying, expensive and had to be changed often. I only have to change my mooncup twice a day and I am never 'caught short' at the start of my period when before I might not have had any tampons in the house. I am so glad I switched to the mooncup, I have saved myself so much money and hassle and I hardly even notice I'm on my period anymore. It's an added bonus that it's good for the planet too!
