The MCUK - known in the UK as Mooncup - 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, MCUK offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.


Made from soft medical grade silicone, MCUK 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. MCUK 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 MCUK, and it lasts for years and years, making it the most economical sanitary product you can buy.

How to use the Mooncup


I LOVE the Mooncup. Seriously, you won't go back. I bought mine 5 years ago, so the amount I've saved is...wow. The first day or so you need to get used to it, but after that, I can honestly say I can't feel it. It stays in place, I can go swimming and at the end I forget I have my period. It's so much less "icky" than tampons.. There's nothing disgusting about emptying the mooncup, but a tampon or sanitary towel full of old blood starts to smell. That's not a problem for me. And no more towels going to landfill. How gross is that? I'm never going back!:)
