Please note that Lunette menstrual cup is not worn higher than any other brand of menstrual cups. All cups generally sit in the same part of vagina (despite claims of some other cup manufacturers). All reusable menstrual cups are positioned in the lower part of the vaginal canal.
The features of the Lunette cup make it superior to other brands.
The stem of the cup is completely flat, which makes it more comfortable than other variations. Since a hollow tab collects bacteria that is impossible to remove without specific tools, we have eliminated this risk with a solid, flat, flexible tab that has extra ridges to facilitate easy removal.
The inside surface of Lunette is completely smooth without any writing or marks, allowing for easier cleaning.
The bottom part of the cup is softer than other brands, making it easier for you to pinch and break the vacuum seal when removing the cup. The bottom part also has extra ridges to facilitate removal.
To make it easier to insert, the rim of the Lunette cup is smaller than other cups. A smaller rim makes the cup fold to a tighter form when you insert it. The soft rim enables a comfortable position of the cup inside your body.
The air holes in the Lunette cup are situated higher than in other cups to ensure that the maximum capacity of the cup can be used before emptying it. The air holes are bigger than other cups to make sure they won't clog easily.
The cups have measuring lines for those who want to monitor their flow. Lastly, Lunette is made from medical-grade silicone instead of latex, which is known to cause allergies.
Lunette scored the highest compared to other menstrual cups in an independent customer satisfaction survey. The users were asked which cup(s) they owned and if they were satisfied with it (/them). Lunette cups received the highest percentage of satisfied customers – 95% – compared to other brands.
In a recent Lunette User Survey, 88 % of all respondents believed that their quality of life during menstruation had increased while using the menstrual cup.
All Lunette products, including Lunette menstrual cups, Feelbetter Liquid Wash, cloth pads and Moodsmooth Body Cream, have the Key Flag. The right to use the Key Flag symbol is issued upon application to the origin mark committee of the Association for Finnish Work. Key Flag products and services must be produced in Finland. When issuing the Key Flag, all costs accumulated up to the shipping of a product at the factory gate are observed. The use of the Key Flag is regulated by the Association for Finnish Work, that has been promoting Finnish know-how already for over 95 years.
Yes, unfortunately there are illegal copies of Lunette menstrual cups. The design of Lunette cups is innovative and new so we have been the first menstrual cup to have copies made in China. All original Lunette cups are made in Finland by strict quality procedures from medical grade silicone. On other hand, menstrual cups made in China are many times made in factories that don't adhere to child labor laws or anti-sweatshop laws. Also products may claim to be made from medical grade silicone when they actually aren't. Medical grade silicone is more expensive so many of these cheap copies are made from cheap silicone of poor quality or even from plastic.
Lunette menstrual cups are trademarked and design protected. We are working with customs around the world to stop the shipment of counterfeits and preventing their sale and distribution. We are asking you not to encourage these companies and their unethical work by buying products that are cheap illegal copies of Lunette.
Be also cautious of purchasing Lunette products on eBay, and other auction websites. Authorized Lunette retailers are not permitted to sell products on auction sites, therefore Lunette products on auction sites are often counterfeit.
