Menstrual cups collect menstrual fluids for disposal instead of absorbing them like uncomfortable pads and tampons. The Green Cup is made from 100% US Health Grade silicone so your body is not at risk of being exposed to toxins, chemicals or fragrances that may be used in some other feminine sanitary products. Tampons are often treated with odor resisting chemicals and fragrances, which can be unhealthy and cause irritation or infection in women who are sensitive.
The absorption of fluids by tampons has been known to cause Toxic Shock Syndrome. There has never been a reported case of TSS by women who use menstrual cups. There is no BPA, plastics, or toxic chemicals that can enter your body through the use of The Green Cup.
