Safe – Made from excellent non-toxic materials. 100% medical grade silicone, no colour additives.
Responsible – Mahina Cup’s social responsibility starts with their packaging, which is 100% recyclable and ethically sourced down to the soy ink that is printed on their cardboard tubing. Inside the Mahina Cup packaging, you’ll find paper educational inserts and a 100% organic cotton pouch, sourced from a certified fair trade factory.
One Mahina Cup is equivalent to about 20,000 tampons. Tampons are not biodegradable and take approx. 300 years for just one to break down, whereas the Mahina Cup is 100% recyclable.
The brand has partnered with PERIOD. The Menstrual Movement, Days for Girls, and The Waterbearers. It offers access to hygienic menstrual solutions for all women, and every purchase of a Mahina Cup donates a cup to a woman or girl in need and provides free period education.
The cup is a great size and shape, with a grippy base and soft stem for easy and comfortable removal. The silicone rim is thick to ensure there are no leaks. The storage bag is sturdy and plastic-free, as is all the packaging, and the product is designed to last 10 years – that’s a lot of disposable products, as well as money, to save!
I loved the ease of use of the Mahina Cup and packaging plus we have values in terms of environmental protection.
I like the hemp zip pouch it comes in and the fact that it’s a clear menstrual cup (better than a dyed colour). I appreciate that it comes with a coupon code for future purchases.
With super soft silicone, this cup is easy to fold and insert making it much less intimidating for a first-timer. It was comfortable and I couldn’t feel it in. I can’t believe it took me this long to try a menstrual cup – and why we all aren’t wearing them! Totally converted!
I love the range of sizes available for this one – having had two babies by natural birth, I am a “super moon”. The silicone is of high quality and I find the cup easy to insert and position correctly. Holds blood for up to 12 hours and best of all – lasts for up to 10 years! I love the extra social responsibility efforts made by the brand to bring period education to the low-income world.
