Collection rather than absorption

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.

Why menstrual cups?

Menstrual cups were developed in response to the rising awareness of women who are seeking healthier options for feminine hygiene. They are a more natural way of maintaining high standards of cleanliness without a lot of hassle. In addition, menstrual cups decrease the tremendous amount of waste products, which are generated throughout the lifetime of menstruating women. They eliminate the need for sanitary napkins and tampons. In kind, women may enjoy greater comfort without worry about the development of feminine odor or the discomfort of pads, which can cause irritation.

Benefits of The Green Cup of Maine

Green Cup menstrual cups are made from medical grade silicone and are registered with the FDA. They do not interfere with the natural cleansing process of the vagina, like tampons can. They may be worn for up to 12 hours or overnight before they need to be emptied. This natural method of feminine hygiene is a healthier alternative that is eco-friendly and uses fewer natural resources. The Green Cup of Maine is also recyclable.

Your Green Cup is worn internally and you won’t feel that it’s there. No more chafing or irritation as some women experience with menstrual pads. You can go about your active lifestyle with total confidence.

You’ll enjoy the itch and odor free protection that you experience with the use of The Green Cup of Maine.
