Ruby Cup: Because all women deserve the best
Ruby Cup is a healthy, high quality and eco-friendly menstrual cup made from Medical Grade Silicone. Ruby Cup is reusable for up to 10 years and you can go up to 12 hours without emptying it. Every Ruby Cup comes with a small, 100% cotton bag for storage.
"Buy One Give One" and keep girls in schools
Girls living in poverty can't afford menstrual hygiene products. Scared of leaking in public, they stay home from school during their period, missing about 20% of their school-time.
With every Ruby Cup purchase, a Ruby Cup is given to a schoolgirl in need. One Ruby Cup is reusable for up to 10 years, meaning that she can pursue her education freely without worrying about her period. For Kenyan school girls, 1 Ruby Cup means 10 years of worry free periods and being able to fully commit to her education.
Ruby Cup is worn internally to collect menstrual fluid during your period. Unlike a tampon, Ruby Cup does not absorb menstrual fluid. This removes some causes of dryness and reduces the risk of leftover fibers, ultimately making Ruby Cup a more healthy solution for maintaining the vaginal bacteria balance.
Each Ruby Cup is made from high quality medical-grade silicone, making it a healthy alternative suitable for all girls and women. Ruby Cup contains no harmful chemicals, absorbency gels, additives, or perfumes. There are no side effects nor Toxic Shock Syndrome associated with Ruby Cup.
During your period, Ruby Cup is inserted and emptied with a frequency that depends on the heaviness of your menstrual flow. Ruby Cup can be worn for up to 12 hours—which means that for many women and girls, the cup does not have to be emptied during an entire school or work day. This allows you to empty, clean, and re-insert the cup in the privacy of your own home. When inserted correctly, Ruby Cup creates a vacuum—or suction—so it does not leak, freeing you from worries of staining your clothes.
Buying a Ruby Cup is an affordable alternative to buying disposable menstrual hygiene products. It is a one-time investment that can last up to 10 years, if used correctly. With Ruby Cup, you will no longer have to buy pads or tampons every month.
On average, a woman uses 11,000 tampons/pads in her lifetime. When you buy a Ruby Cup, you make a positive environmental impact by completely eliminating the waste of disposable sanitary products!
