Selecting a feminine hygiene product shouldn't be a hassle. Pick one that's safe, gentle on your body, and convenient. It's as easy as that.
A menstrual cup is a great alternative to traditional tampons and pads. In addition to being eco-friendly, more cost effective, and practical, Zero Cup offers you unbridled convenience during your period.
Quality & Standards
Shockingly, the law dictates that companies selling tampons and sanitary pads are not required to disclose the ingredients used. The industry is unregulated, allowing companies to sneak toxic chemicals in the manufacturing of tampons and pads.
Zero Cup is proudly made from 100% medical-grade silicone (the same stuff used to make medical equipment). It is safe to reuse for up to ten years and can be sanitised easily by boiling.
Our manufacturer is registered with the FDA and complies with standards set by the ISO. The silicone used to make Zero Cup is soft, gentle, and of the highest quality.
Zero Cup works by collecting your menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it. Its unique bell-shape offers you a guaranteed leak-free period experience without any compromise on comfort.
It is smooth, silky, and soft; contouring to your body and fitting to your unique shape.
Tampons and pads, on the other hand, contain a whole host of additives to the cotton: bleach, fragrances, acetone, and a number of other unwanted chemicals that are harmful to you.
Heck, we could go on explaining why you don't want to be exposed to the dangerous chemicals traditionally found in feminine hygiene products, but you get the gist.
Eliminate any worries you may have about what's lurking in your period protection and try Zero Cup.
Fed up of feeling that hideously bulky sanitary pad or the pinching sensation of an excessively dry tampon? So were we - until we switched to Zero Cup, that is!
Once correctly inserted, you will not feel the menstrual cup inside you at all. Fold and insert like you would a tampon and enjoy the comfort of silky soft silicone.
Unlike wet pads, Zero Cup does not cause any irritation to the delicate skin of your vulva. You can keep your cup in for up to 12 hours at a time, depending on your flow. Rest assured you can go for a swim, a sweaty run, a night of uninterrupted sleep with full period protection!
Plus, you'll never pee on a tampon string again. Three cheers to living life untethered!
Better For Your Body
Tampons work by absorbing your menstrual flow. Unfortunately, tampons are unable to distinguish which fluids they're absorbing, so they also soak up the natural moisture in your vagina. This can cause imbalances such as thrush or vaginal dryness.
It's possible that using tampons contribute to yeast infections. Vaginas have an very specific pH balance - a healthy vagina will have a pH ranging between 3.8 and 4.5 - that ensures healthy vaginal flora.
A menstrual cup works by collecting your menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it, allowing your body to thrive the way it should!
Tampons routinely leave behind cotton fibres and trace chemicals in your vagina as well as causing vaginal irritation. Switching to a menstrual cup is undeniably better for your body!
More seriously, there has only been one reported case of TSS associated with using a menstrual cup, compared to thousands of cases linked to tampon usage. In the UK, about 20 cases of TSS a year are directly correlated to using tampons.
Make sure to empty your cup every 8-12 hours and rinse thoroughly. Take care to follow all cleaning instructions, and remember to sterilise your cup at the start and end of each period.
