WHY USE AN MCUP?

  • It is a sustainable solution in a culture that associates disposability with convenience
  • It is an environmentally responsible choice.
  • Cost Effective – your Mcup only needs to be replaced once every 5 years.
  • Mcups are locally manufactured in Cape Town, under FDA conditions 
  • It is made from medically approved, 100% pure silicone (which means no impurities like colour) in an FDA certified factory.
  • Each Mcup comes in a storage bag which is made by a local community project – Mpower purchased machines, cutting tables and equipment for The Sewing Project and supplies the material, cotton and ribbon needed for production.
  • One Mcup is the equivalent of 1 200 pads (when used for 5 years)
    • Available in 2 sizes
    • Antibacterial, entirely non-absorbent and is not associated with TSS (toxic shock syndrome) or with other infections like cystitis or candida (thrush)
    • Environmentally friendly solution to pads and tampons
    • Menstrual cups can be used by all women, even before first sexual intercourse and in conjunction with an IUD or contraceptive diaphragm
    • It holds up to three times more fluid than the average tampon or pad
    • It is reusable so no need for regularly purchasing, using and disposing of traditional sanitary ware.  
    • Easy to clean as the lining is totally smooth and the tab is flat.  
    • Can be worn during sports and at night
    • Needs to be changed less frequently than even the highest absorbency tampons and can be worn overnight
    • Odourless and entirely invisible with no strings
    • Comfortable as it is made from soft flexible silicone rubber
    • Convenient to carry in your bag, nothing to throw away or to run out of
    • Safe to use before the onset of menstruation so ensures maximum preparation
    • Ideal for an active lifestyle and for active sports such as running, gym, yoga and swimming
    • Provides more reliable protection as it opens to form a suction seal that resists leakage. 4 seal release holes placed below the rim (The Mcup has a small rim and the holes are a decent distance away from the rim so the vaginal walls conform and close off the holes. only 2 holes which make it more difficult to remove as one needs to fold in the correct place so that one of the holes is revealed. The Mcup has 4 holes which makes it easier as 2 will always be revealed and releases the vacuum.)
