Now there is an alternative that is healthier for our bodies, our environment and our pocketbook — the Lunette menstrual cup.
Made in Finland, the Lunette menstrual cup is an easy-to-use, safe, and clean alternative to pads and tampons. Using a Lunette is similar to using a tampon but requires less changing. Made of medical-grade silicone, a non-friendly environment for bacteria, menstrual cups are simply washed and reused. Not to mention, menstrual cups create zero waste.
What is the Lunette cup?
And how can a cup make your periods nicer?
Lunette is healthy. It doesn’t absorb moisture like tampons or cause sweating like pads. Lunette is made of soft medical grade silicone, not of rubber latex. The silicone design is naturally hygienic, easy to insert and reusable for years to come.
Lunette is also an “eco-thing.” Save pulp, cotton, plastic, wrappers, applicators ... and your cash too.
Lunette means security, less change hassle. A cup, by its liquid holding nature, is more secure than tampons or pads. You can wear your cup continuously for up to 12 hours. It can also be used while sleeping at night. Lead your normal life all month with Lunette. It comes with a small, cute pouch that fits discreetly into your handbag. You’ll never have to worry about where to buy tampons. You can do all your usual physical activities, like sports.

Available in clear and four colors:
The coral color Lunette menstrual cup is called Áine - the Goddess of moon, love, fertility and Midsummer in Irish mythology. She was later known as an Irish Fairy Queen.
Symbolizing femininity, this lunar deity was depicted as a goddess because the moon appeared to become pregnant and give girth to a new moon each month. Legends portray her as goddess with the power to ease childbirth and inspire love. Because of her highly developed sense of intuition, she was also known as the patron of solutions.
Lunette Cynthia is our newest product -- a beautiful violet colored menstrual cup.
Cynthia is an important symbol for young, independent and unmarried woman. In mythology, she is worshipped as a Maiden Goddess. This purple color reminds us of the beautiful northern lights that grace the skies above Finland during Winter months.
The Lunette Diana has an opaque light spring green color. In Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the moon, the hunt, nature, childbirth and protector of the weak. Doesn't this description sound like the modern woman? Besides her role as a heavenly super-hero, Diana was also a goddess of the woodlands. NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
A lightly frosted clear silicone.
