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 saw a post on the testimonals, saying that the testimonials must be fake because they are all so positive. The reality I think is that lots of women (perhaps not all) have had really good experiences using a mooncup. I can probably only speak for myself, but I have never felt so confident and comfortable on my period. I must admit it was a bit tricky at first… I had a number of times when I felt frustrated.. I couldn’t get it to work.. I went back to towels.. but then I tried a different fold method (the second one on the leaflet) and success! I ended up cutting off the whole of the stem, as for me it seemed to.. uh rub in all the wrong places.. but now a few years on. I’m really happy with it. I recently got back from travelling, and it was super easy to take it with me and not worry about buying pad’s or tampons. I guess women will make up their own minds, but I really think it’s worth a try, and then perhaps another try a few months later (that’s how it happened for me) and now I love my mooncup.
