Lunette’s mission this year is all about #PeriodPower! For the past few weeks we’ve been talking a lot about why periods are powerful, how we can start to break the taboos and spreading the word on social media. Which is all well and good but….does anyone else feel a bit disheartened by it all? We believe it’s so important to share the realities of how people’s quality of life can be negatively affected by menstruation all over the world and, crucially, how it doesn’t have to be like that at all! But it can feel a like a big problem....

The year of #PeriodPower is here! Recently we talked about what Period Power means and why this topic is SO important...now more than ever! So, great. Let’s spread the word and get everyone talking positively about periods… :D via GIPHY ...erm, is it me or did things just get SUPER awkward? Yup we feels you. Periods are commonplace, normal and healthy but gosh darn they can still feel super weird to talk about. If you’ve been following us for a while or are a seasoned menstrual cup user then you’re probably more familiar with the topic than most (go team!)...

Raise your hand if you’re ready to talk about periods...like REALLY talk about them. You there feeling shy in the back row, we’re especially talking to YOU. At the end of last year we reflected on how periods finally got woke. Now it’s time to see how powerful they can be. You might have noticed, depending on your social media bubble, that all things period talk, menstrual cup movements and all around #PeriodPositive momentums are on the rise. From the fight against the absurd #TamponTax, bringing light to #PeriodPoverty in ALL parts of the world (including where you are) and...

The short version: Just like tampons, your menstrual cup has no increased risk of TSS (toxic shock syndrome). As with any period care product the most important thing is to keep it clean, don’t leave it in too long and use a trusted brand. The truth behind the science: Every so often a clickbait article headline graces our newsfeeds which admittedly can be difficult to ignore. Recently a French study has been quoted on menstrual cups having increased risk of TSS. A big claim right? Menstrual cups have been a trusted period care product for decades. In fact, globally only...

Tired of seeing those period commercials that show us how absorbent their tampons or pads are from a blue liquid representing our period blood? (they’re SO OFF if they think our vaginas are producing that color). Okay okay, in all seriousness, I don’t think I’ve ever been able to relate to a single one of those period commercials, have you? If I’m wearing a pad and doing yoga at the same time, there’s absolutely no way I’m going to feel fresh and comfortable, and I’m definitely not all smiles during my period week! If tampon and pad commercials were honest,...

Today we’re releasing our new video, a story we’re excited to share and the kind we would like to see more of, both on camera and in the real world. We’re really passionate about the products we make (like truly, madly, deeply kind of passionate) but products only get us so far. It’s the bigger picture stuff, the ideas behind the products, the stories we tell ourselves in our day to day that really makes the difference. Products don’t empower you. We believe you already have the power right there within but that access to informed choices, sharing big ideas...
