Our menstrual cup is made of medical-grade silicone. Medical grade silicone is widely used in the healthcare industry for more than 60 years. It is used as material for contact lenses, breast implants or as cardiac valve replacement. It is material proven to be safe for the human body.
The medical-grade silicone is:
- Hypoallergenic: there are not any reactions whatsoever,
- Antibacterial: unlike the tampons or napkins the cup does not allow microorganisms to multiply
- flexible, soft and durable
- does not affect the pH of the vagina
LUNACUP brand menstrual cup is made of platinum quality medical grade silicone and complies with both ISO 10993 and USP class IV. Therefore it is suitable as a short term bodily implant. Such high-quality material is not a matter of course for all manufacturers.
No chemicals are used during the production. And that is why it is perfectly safe to insert the cup into your body. Hardly would you use cellulose as an implant or contact lens. And yet you use tampons or napkins with the most intimate part of your body every single month! Well, until now you could say: “I have never heard of a menstrual cup.” But that is not the case anymore! So it is time for a change!
