Mooncup: ecological option to the tampon for women

The appearance of disposable wipes and tampons, due to the evolution they presented in the daily life of women, caused a feminine revolution. Currently there is a new product that will change the lives of those who use it and that will mark a before and after in the treatment of menstruation.

The Mooncup comes to banish the classic tampon because it is a product that fulfills the same function but has more advantages than the cotton friend. The most important is that it is an ecological and sustainable product that lasts up to 10 years, which prevents the generation of waste during that entire period and, at the same time, spending money. On the continent it is still a mystery and, little by little, more women are getting excited. But in Europe and the United States it has been installed for a long time. Only a century ago they took care not to stain themselves with reusable cotton rags and, later, with cotton. That is why when disposable wipes and tampons arrived, they automatically began to be used. Today to this list we must add the menstrual cup.

The product was invented many years ago, at the same time as the tampon, because both products have the same essence and the same function. Back in the 1930s, industrialists found themselves facing a problem: were they launching something on the world market en masse that had to be bought once a month or another that was bought every 10 years? The balance of profit tipped towards the first option.

The mechanism of operation is as follows: it is folded, the whole of it is inserted into the vagina and after several hours (between 4 and 8) it is removed, washed with water and reintroduced.

The benefits of the Ecological Cup Mooncup are many compared to any other method used today. Being made of silicone, the cup is malleable, hypoallergenic and resists wear and tear over time. The production company, based in England, manufactures all its products with reusable and ecological materials, complying with the international regulations of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The cup has a storage capacity 3 times greater than that of the tampon and has a scale that allows you to quantify the amount of blood that is lost each time. But the benefits do not end here, since from the aesthetic side, it also has advantages because no one can find out that a woman is menstruating since there are no signs on the outside. Finally, it can be used to sleep, go swimming, run and do all the activities with complete peace of mind.

The product is very accessible, it is an investment that has to be made once every ten years and helps not to pollute the environment.
