About Us - The CleanCup Story
Welcome to CleanCup! We're a dedicated Norwegian team on a mission to redefine menstrual experiences for the better. How, you ask? By engineering what we believe to be the most comfortable menstrual cup on the market—CleanCup.
Why We Exist
We're not just about making a product; we're about driving a movement. Our core aim is to ensure that all menstruators—yes, we mean everyone—have access to menstrual health products that are not just safe and affordable, but also sustainable.
Why We Took Our Time
In an age where quick fixes are all the rage, we could have easily rushed a one-size-fits-all solution to market. But we didn't. Instead, we headed back to the drawing board and brought together hundreds of women in the design process. Why? To create a menstrual cup that isn't just "good enough," but truly the most comfortable option available.
Setting the Gold Standard for Quality
We've seen an influx of menstrual cups of questionable origin flood the market. That's not us. Your health is non-negotiable. That's why we've gone to great lengths to create menstrual cups that are free of harmful chemicals. We took our sweet time meticulously perfecting our manufacturing process to ensure that each CleanCup meets rigorous safety and quality standards. In a world of shortcuts, we chose the path of commitment to your health. When you choose CleanCup, you're choosing quality.
Knowledge is Power
... and we want menstruators to be powerful! Making informed decisions about your menstrual health is crucial. That's why we're deeply committed to educational outreach. From understanding cervical height to deciphering flow levels and getting to know your hormonal cycle, we provide you with the resources to know your body better.
Meet the Founder
Ever had one of those, 'Why hasn't anyone told me about this before?!' moments? Yeah, me too!
Hi there! I'm the founder & CEO of CleanCup. Rewind to 2016, I embarked on this journey because I felt every girl deserved to know about the menstrual cup, an absolute game-changer. Back then, in our beautiful Norway, menstrual cups were almost like urban legends; only a handful knew about them, and most pictured them as a 'hippie thing'. Not really the mainstream alternative to pads and tampons, right?
I remember being gobsmacked when I first tried a menstrual cup in 2015. It was nothing short of an epiphany. I couldn't help but think, why aren't these gems talked about in schools, just like other disposable products?
And so, CleanCup was born. Our aim? To not just introduce you to a fab product but also give you the info you need about it. Since 2016, it's been a whirlwind of raising awareness and refining our product to give you the unique CleanCup experience.
Our Donation Program
We're passionate about menstrual health. From the very beginning, for every cup sold, we gifted another. Our inaugural collaboration was with Save the Children Norway, providing CleanCups to hundreds of school-going girls in need. Even though our partnership with Save the Children had to end due to COVID-19, we're incredibly proud of the positive impact we made. And now? We're gearing up for our next big donation initiative. We remain unwavering in our commitment to menstruators worldwide.
We're in this for the long haul, aiming to make waves not just in your bathroom cabinets but also in our global community. Advocacy for menstrual health and sustainability is at the heart of what we do. We're here to start conversations, break taboos, and contribute meaningfully to societal wellbeing.
So there you have it. CleanCup isn't just a product; it's a promise—a promise of quality, education, and sustainable living. Join us on this journey to make menstruation a more comfortable and eco-conscious experience. 🌱
