About Green Rays Menstrual cup
Green Rays Cup was born from a desire to empower women and give them better, healthier and eco-friendlier alternatives to period hygiene. Because with suitable and comfortable solutions, we gain better control over our body, our choices and our life. We want to keep on with our lifestyle, either while on our period or not.
What is GreenRays Menstrual Cup?
Green Rays Cup is a menstrual cup, a reusable hygiene product, used as an alternative to disposable tampons and sanitary pads.
The anatomical malleable supple cup is meant to be placed internally, in the vaginal canal and is aiming to collect the menstrual flow (as opposed to absorbing it, as tampons do), allowing to keep the vaginal PH at regular natural levels.
Depending on your menstrual flow, you can wear your menstrual cup for up to 12 consecutive hours Day & Night, no leaking, no shame, no worries.
You could potentially go on from the morning until the evening, on a full working day, without bothering yourself to empty your cup.
Green Rays Menstrual Cup can be Reused Month after Month for up to 10 Years.
No more uncomfortable pad changes in shady toilets, taking breaks in the middle of your activities or worrying about leaking!
Think your period is about to come, but you’re unsure of when? Green Rays Cup can be even used preventively, so your period will never catch you unprepared – whether you are at work, school, gym, beach or travelling.
What is Green Rays Cup Made of?
Green Rays Cup is made of 100% Class VI medical grade silicone. This is FDA registered silicone tested for biocompatibility and is suitable for medical applications. The same material is used to manufacture baby pacifiers and bottle nipples, making it one of the safest material to have around your vagina. Our period cup doesn’t contain any colours or dyes. The cotton pouch used for storage is made of organic cotton GOTs certified.
Green Rays Cup is made in the USA, in an ISO 9001:2015 certified facility. The cup is registered by the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration – Federal Agency of USA).
Healthy & Safe
With Green Rays Cup, what you see is what you get.
Legislation in the disposable period hygiene industry does not require manufacturers to disclose the entire list from which products are made.
Unfortunately, most of them include rayon, dioxin, BPA, un-organic cotton, chlorine or fragrances so the risk of irritation, rashes, allergies, or even TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) is high.
In Europe, the menstrual cups are regarded as hygiene products, so there is no strict regulation to enforce safety.
Many menstrual cups that are being sold on the market are manufactured in improper conditions using unknown materials and dyes.
Green Rays Cup is made of 100% traceable 50 durometer medical grade silicone, class VI, by our manufacturing partner based in the USA, in an ISO 9001:2015 registered facility. Our cup does not include any dyes.
The USA regards menstrual cups as a medical application, requiring FDA registration; therefore, the regulation around it is strict, ensuring that the end product is safe and suitable to being used internally.
Eco-friendly & Low-Waste
Statistics estimate that a woman uses about 13,000 tampons or pads in a lifetime. Sadly, all these disposable products get in a landfill, taking long years to disappear completely. While it’s enough shame around menstruation and we don’t want to add guilt on top of it, Green Rays Cup encourages and supports you to be eco-aware and eco-friendly.
Using Green Rays Cup is one easy way to reduce all that waste produced by disposable period hygiene products and get your period zero-waste.
