If you’re anything like I was initially, you might be a bit skeptical in regards to a menstrual cup.
But the more research I did, the more convinced I became that a menstrual cup has the capacity to optimize our period and how we care for our bodies (and the environment).
Conventional period products (tampons, pads, etc.) are often expensive and contain known toxins, including aluminum, alcohol and fragrance additives. But perhaps worst of all, they’re bleached in the production process, leaving behind traces of dioxins in our bodies that can lead to cramping, painful periods and hormone imbalances like endometriosis.
Using a menstrual cup like Saalt, which is made with a non-toxic, ultra-soft silicone formula, eliminates the need for toxic period products and saves you money (1 cup can last up to 10 years) and cuts down on environmental waste in the process.
I also like this cup because it’s super flexible and discreet. I forget about it once it’s in there and only have to switch it out every 12 hours (following proper cleaning instructions and care of course). It’s gently designed for people who might have had discomfort with firmer cups or any bladder/vaginal sensitivity, but still super effective (especially if you’re active, like me).
Last, but certainly not least, Saalt dedicates a portion of every menstrual cup purchase back to providing period care for many women who can’t afford it or get access to it. It feels really awesome to purchase a product that supports our bodies, better periods, the environment and other women in the process.
