Breaking disinformation and silence
In an effort to ensure that women and girls can properly manage menstruation, access to education and information becomes critical. This is the reason why our products are always accompanied by cultural and age-appropriate informative and educational materials. These materials aim to contribute to break persistent gender and social norms, stigma, misconceptions and taboos around menstruation, which in many cases lead to exclusion and discrimination of women and girls.
