8 menstrual cup MYTHS to look out for

Massive myth!

Be careful where you choose to buy your menstrual cup and check it adheres to high quality standards. Unless you buy a reputable brand from an authorised retailer there’s a chance that you (and your vagina) might not be as satisfied with your purchase as you expected.

At Mooncup, we’re often contacted by customers who realise they’ve been fooled into buying a fake or cheaply manufactured cup, so we want to help you make an informed decision.

A few things to look out for when choosing a menstrual cup:

  • Some cups are being made from food-grade silicone which cannot be considered a safe material for a menstrual cup. Look out for the materials listed and trust your instincts. Misinformation is rife when it comes to the cheap menstrual cups on the market.
  • Some cups may claim to have a “CE mark” – commonly known as a certification mark to indicate health, safety and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area. Thing is, menstrual cups aren’t actually regulated in this way. If there IS a CE mark on your cup it could be the China Export symbol – which looks almost identical!
  • Another point to consider is where your menstrual cup is manufactured. Unfortunately, not all countries will have high standards of quality within their manufacturing industries, nor will they be conducting ethical trade practices in all instances. The Mooncup is, and has always been made in the UK minimising the emissions and cutting out airmiles from our manufacturing process.
