About Us

Mooncup Ltd. was established in 2002, with a mission to make women’s experience of menstruation more positive, healthy and eco-friendly. The Mooncup menstrual cup was designed from medical grade silicone to enable women with sensitive skin and particularly latex allergies to use it (earlier models were made from rubber). Mooncup Ltd., and particularly the Advice Centre nurses, are committed to researching menstrual health and to the advancement of education about this under-discussed subject that affects half the world’s population!

Based in the beautiful seaside city of Brighton, Mooncup Ltd today is a multi-award winning small business run by a team of eight women, and collaborating with distributors all around the world. Whenever possible, the Mooncup team gets out of the office to talk directly with women at festivals, health shows and conferences. We also work closely with medical professionals with the same goal: to offer women a greater choice for their bodies each month.

In 2004, Mooncup Ltd. was awarded Ethical Company status for its commitment to people and animal friendly practices, making it the first sanitary protection manufacturer in the world to be a certified ethical business.

Ethical Policy

Su Hardy, the Company Director, and her employees believe that the Mooncup has the potential to greatly improve women’s experience of their periods, as well as reducing the environmental damage caused by the manufacture and disposal of throwaway sanitary protection.

With these goals in mind the team at Mooncup is working to ensure that the Mooncup is the menstrual product of the future, guided by environmentally and people friendly business practices.

The mooncup has been completely amazing and changed my life for the better. I am 16 years old and having started my period at 14 my mum was skeptical about whether I would be able to use it. I was desperately looking for solutions for periods on Duke of Edinburgh so I bought the size B and despite initial problems with insertion and removal, I have proved my mum wrong. I recently used it on a watersports holiday, saving me from the problems of soggy tampons that need to be changed regularly. I also no longer have to use sanitary towels at night we keeps everything cleaner. My advice to anyone my age considering buying the moon cup is to do so. However you will need to be comfortable with your body and willing to persist through some pain at the start (at least this is what I found). The best tips I picked up where keeping your jaw slack when inserting as this relaxes the vaginal muscles, starting off by squatting in the shower and ultimately just being confident and determined about it. It's ecological, cheaper, cleaner, lasts longer and has no bad odour! It's been great for me as I have irregular periods and don't know when they are coming. Using the Mooncup has been such a freeing experience and I hope to never go back to tampons. Thank you Mooncup
