Why is a MyCup Menstrual cup made out of medical-grade silicone?

In the world of menstrual care, innovation and safety go hand in hand. MyCup menstrual cups have captured attention as a game-changing solution, and at the heart of their design lies a key ingredient: medical-grade silicone. Designed, and produced in the Garden City of New Zealand (Christchurch). MyCup menstrual cups are fast becoming the number one choice for period care among women in many countries. And using medical-grade silicone as our only material, is a big part of the reason why.  

Medical-grade silicone is a biocompatible material that has been approved by health regulatory agencies for use in medical and healthcare applications. Its unique properties make it a sought-after choice for a wide range of products, including MyCup menstrual cups.  One of the paramount reasons MyCup menstrual cups are made from medical grade silicone is safety. This silicone variant is free from harmful chemicals, toxins, and allergens, ensuring that it is safe for contact with the sensitive and delicate vaginal environment. 

Menstruating women have diverse sensitivities, and MyCup recognises the importance of catering to all. Medical-grade silicone's hypoallergenic nature minimises the risk of allergic reactions, making it a gentle and welcoming choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies. The softness and flexibility of medical-grade silicone allows any women a comfortable and user-friendly experience. MyCup menstrual cups come in different sizes, and once the correct size has been established are designed to fit snugly yet comfortably inside the vaginal canal, ensuring ease of insertion, removal, and wear throughout your period. 

MyCup's commitment to sustainability is reflected in our choice of materials. Medical-grade silicone is reusable and helps reduce the environmental impact of disposable menstrual products. By opting for a MyCup menstrual cup, you contribute to minimising waste and embracing a greener period care routine. 

The choice of medical-grade silicone as the foundation of MyCup menstrual cups reflects our dedication to safety, comfort, and sustainability. This exceptional material embodies the science of well-being, offering a hypoallergenic, durable, and flexible solution for those seeking a positive period experience. With MyCup, you're not just embracing a menstrual cup and reusable products – you're embracing a choice that aligns with your health, values, and the future of our planet.
