Period Cups Malaysia was founded in 2020 with the goal of ushering in a new period for women all over Malaysia.
Like most women, we used to dread each and every period, hating that it would always make our lives difficult. The constant change of pads, sneaking off to the bathroom, not being able to sit and sleep in the positions we want, and not even being able to sneeze without there being a waterfall (if you know what we mean). What we didn't love about pads was the smell, the sounds they make when we walk and of course, the fact that they are ridiculously itchy.
We also thought about how many pads and tampons are used and discarded after only a few hours. The impact that these products have on the environment (and on our wallets) is devastating to say the least.
Then we found the OrganiCup and it changed everything. Imagine not being able to feel anything when you sneeze. Imagine being able to sleep in any position you want, swim, do sports and just forget about your period. No more smelly, itchy, loud pads. The best part is, a single OrganiCup can last for up to 10 years. It doesn't just help reduce waste and pollution, but it also helps all of us save money.
So, we decided we wanted to bring the OrganiCup to every woman in Malaysia. Liaising with the brand owner, Period Cups Malaysia has become an official reseller of the award-winning menstrual cup in Malaysia.
We believe that no one should be held back by their body. We believe period products should not contain harmful chemicals nor absorb natural bodily secretions, resulting in infections. Periods should not be the cause of major pollution. And they should never, ever be a source of shame.
Malaysia is more conservative culturally and periods are considered a taboo. However, we hope to break the silence and pave the way for something new.
To a better world and a better period.
