Reinventing the Menstrual Cup: Lily Cup Compact on Kickstarter

Oct 142014

Intimina is super excited to present its revolution in menstrual protection: Lily Cup Compact, the first ever reusable menstrual cup that collapses flat into a tiny compact, allowing it to be carried everywhere with you. We have launched a project on crowd funding website Kickstarter in order to raise funding for Lily Cup Compact and to create awareness that there is a more sustainable and comfortable option in period protection.

Check out our video:


If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, here’s how it works: If you like Lily Cup Compact and you want to help us make it available to women everywhere, you can make a pledge on Kickstarter. In return for your support you’ll be among the first to receive a Lily Cup Compact and other great rewards, but only if we reach our funding target! So please spread the word and help make our project happen.

More about Lily Cup Compact

Portable: Lily Cup Compact has an all new, patented design with unique ribbing that allows it to stay rigid when it’s in use, then collapse flat when you’re finished using it. In its lip-balm-tin sized case, that keeps it clean and discreet, it can be carried everywhere, in the smallest of bags or even in your pocket. The days of stuffing your bag with tampons or having to ask a friend for one when your period sneaks up on you are over. With Lily Cup Compact, your period starting never has to be an emergency again!

Convenient: When inserted, Lily Cup Compact stays in place to keep you protected all day, and gives you up to 10 hours of non-stop protection. There are no more frequent tampon changes and you can have a full night’s sleep without worrying about it.

All you need to do is:
1. Fold and insert
2. Wear for up to 10 hours
3. Remove and empty
4. Wash and reinsert

Healthy: Like all menstrual cups, Lily Cup Compact collects flow rather than absorbing it. So there is no dryness, irritation or odors often experienced with tampons. And because it is non-porous, there is no place for bacteria to grow, so it respects the pH and flora balance of the vagina.

Eco-friendly: Reduces waste – no more tampons or pads to throw into the waste basket. Can you believe that US women create 270,000 tons of menstrual product waste in one year? That’s 6 times the weight of the Titanic!

Comfortable: Lily Cup Compact is made of ultra-soft, flexible silicone; so you can’t feel it at all while wearing it. Also there is no string or padding so you can wear whatever you like. It lets you literally forget you are even on your period.

Safe: Lily Cup Compact is made from 100% medical-grade silicone with FDA approved color pigment. It’s hypoallergenic, latex-free, phthalate-free, and contains zero toxins.

Economical: One Lily Cup Compact can last for years, so you’ll save more than 85% of your menstrual care expenses and never have to run to the drug store again.
