Innovative Feminine Hygiene

Our Mission

  • HER

  • The stigma surrounding periods has been shown to directly affect a girls potential to succeed. Nine million girls in South Africa alone missed school last year due to their period.
  • HEALTH

  • Hemp is antimicrobial meaning it is both antibacterial and antifungal. These factors mean there is no use of pesticides or any harsh chemicals in the growing or production process of our products.
  • HEMP

  • Compared to cotton, hemp uses 5X less water, 2-3X less land, matures 2X fast, is 4X more durable, 2-3X more absorbent, requires no pesticides or herbicides and is 100% biodegradable.
