Floating florals, lush gardens, the panoramic sky and cotton candy clouds on a bed of soft pastels… Enthusiastic butterflies, and even more enthusiastic female gymnasts… just what one usually encounters on packaging created for period and female hygiene products.
The approach to periods, or ‘that time of the month’ has somehow been less about conversation, and more about painting an almost fake positive narrative. Ask any woman (or yourself if you are one) about the period experience. It’s annoying, tiring, full of uncertain emotions and plagued by social stigma.
Our largely female team had the opportunity to change this state of affairs, back in 2016. We are so glad our labour of love has finally been launched in 2021.
There is a lot of conversation about breaking the stigma around periods and period talk online. We wanted to bring this discussion to the front of our pack, and own our period experience.
