Innovative Feminine Hygiene

Our Mission

  • HER

  • The stigma surrounding periods has been shown to directly affect a girls potential to succeed. If a girl misses school every time she gets her period she is set 145 days behind her fellow male classmates.
  • HEALTH

  • Hemp is antimicrobial meaning it is both antibacterial and antifungal. Hemp is also naturally pest resistant. These factors mean there is no need for pesticides or any harsh chemicals in the 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.
