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 have just used the mooncup for the second month in a row. It is a revelation. When I first heard about the mooncup a few years ago I thought it sounded a bit icky. Now I could kick myself for not buying one earlier. It is so simple to use, I never get the pain I used sometimes when I inserted tampons. For 2 months in a row I have had no leakages. Because I have quite a heavy flow I used to use large tampons, but they often hurt and made my periods more miserable. Now I have no insertion or removal pain. It has saved me money already and no more tampons going into landfill. Tampon manufacturers should by rights, be quaking in their boots at this little invention. I have already got my best friend Grace using one, and I am working on my sister now. Every female should have a mooncup, I cannot get over how good it is. Many thanks.
