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.

I first tried another brand of menstrual cup when I was about 24, in the smaller size that was recommended for women under 30 who've not had children. I loved the idea and convenience of the cup, as well as the savings in money and the sheer waste that disposable products generate, but I never had much success with it as it would move and after a few minutes I'd be able to feel it. I decided to try again with Mooncup and even though I'm still under 30 and have not had children, I ordered the larger size to see if I'd have any more luck. Best decision I ever made! I'm now a Mooncup girl and I'll never go back. This cup is reliable, never leaks and doesn't move, even through a full and active work day, a day at the beach or out snorkeling. I never wake up during the night just to "check" that everything's still ok down there! It only needs emptying once in the morning and then again before bed, and it never "runs out", so it beats any other method hands down for convenience. I'm going to try to convert my friends and family - once you get used to the idea and the use of the cup, you realise it really is the best option for your sanitary needs!
