A menstrual cup, also known as a period cup, is an easy-to-use, safe, clean alternative to conventional pads and tampons. Made of medical-grade silicone - which is a safe and hypoallergenic material - menstrual cups are simply washed and reused. Using a menstrual cup is similar to using a tampon but requires less changing. Not to mention, using a period cup creates zero waste for the environment, and saves a lot of money over the years of having a period.
At Biome, choose from Lunette, JuJu and Organicup menstrual cups.

From 1 January 2019, GST has been removed from menstrual products including menstrual cups and reusable cloth pads! Biome supported the campaign to remove GST on sanitary items because they are a necessity item purchased for health and hygiene reasons. For a zero waste period, a period cup works well together with Modibodi period undies to catch any overflow (which only happens if left in for too long).
Menstrual cups can also be worn while doing sport, running, and swimming. And period cups can be worn by a person of any age, who has started to menstruate.
