MildCares

Why is it so important to understand female hygiene? You might be surprised to know that around 300 million women in India are denied using sanitary napkins. There is a huge need for female hygiene products that are yet to be fulfilled, the most common being sanitary products. This has a lot to do with the price of wide branded sanitary products, which are just too expensive for low-income households. As a result, millions of women in India go without appropriate supplies and rely on cloth, newspaper, or other unhygienic alternatives, resulting in various health problems like vaginal irritations to severe problems like Cancer at times. 

A solution to this was realised by GynoCup menstrual Cup. The idea was to establish a social enterprise that could reach out to as many people as possible and aware people in society about the harmful effects of the menstrual unhygienic practices that people have adopted since while and also educate them about women hygiene and how important it is to use the right menstrual product to avoid diseases.

GynoCup, an Indian firm owned by Rachna (Mild Cares), headquartered in New Delhi, Delhi, India. The company has been recognised as the world's greatest online menstrual cup selling company and personal care organisation.

There have been several companies working on sanitary products.

Positive feedback by our content customer Surbhi Goel- “This surely is a great product if awareness is made among the feminine society to use it. I too was apprehensive about using it as we live on other products during this time cycle. But when I read how to use it and the benefits it has, I thought of trying it and believe me it is a really helpful thing. It saved me from the usual looking back and uncomfortable feeling that I liked very much. The packaging too was great as the product came in a paper bag, with hand sanitizer to maintain hygiene issues. Overall a great product

To eliminate stigma and create menstrual equality as a societal norm, menstrual health education and resources are required.
