Visionary Design with Comfort in Mind
Innovative features, and visionary design (with comfort in mind) by a woman, for women is what makes Lunette so unique and superior to other cup brands…
Lunette’s Stem on the cup is completely flat, flexible, and thin which makes it more comfortable to wear than other brands. Since you’ll be wearing it inside of you for hours, it needs to practically undetectable and supremely comfortable. Some brands have a hollow tab, which collects bacteria that’s virtually impossible to remove. We’ve eliminated this risk with a solid, flat, flexible tab that does not give bacteria a home to breed. While the stem is thin and flexible, it’s still durable, with comfortable and convenient extra ridges that allow for easy, painless removal.
Lunette’s Inside Surface is completely smooth without any raised printing or marks, allowing for easier cleaning, and is again, hostile to bacteria. The Lunette cup bottom is softer than other brands, making it easier for you to ‘pinch and release’ the vacuum seal when removing the cup. The bottom part also has convenient extra ridges to easy removal.
Lunette’s Rim Design makes it easier to insert, as the rim of the cup is smooth, not pronounced and smaller than other cups. A smaller rim makes the cup fold to a tighter configuration when you insert it. The soft rim ensures a comfortable cup position inside your body.
Lunette’s dimensions: Lunette’s dimensions are different. Lunette is slightly shorter in length than some other brands, yet designed to maximize capacity. A shorter length allows for more comfortable wear. If a cup is too long, it may protrude – not comfy. If a menstrual cup is not comfortable — you won’t wear it. When properly positioned, a cup shouldn't be felt.
Lunette’s Air Holes are situated ‘higher up the cup wall’ than in other cups, to ensure that the maximum fluid capacity of the cup can be used before emptying it. The air holes are larger than other cups and not angled to prevent clogging.
Lunette’s Measuring Lines help educate you about your ‘cycle and flow,’ monitor your cycle, and figure out your heavy and light days. The lines are on the outside of the cup which makes them easy to clean..
Lunette’s Composition is superior for your interior, made from medical-grade silicone instead of latex, which is known to cause allergies.
Lunette’s Consistency: Lunette offers two different types of consistency: one firm and one soft. The larger model (Lunette Cup Model 2) is firm and easily pops open during insertion. While the smaller model also (Lunette Cup Model 1) opens easily — it’s consistency is different: It was designed to be softer and squishier. This is a benefit for younger users, new to menstrual cups or tampons, to make insertion easier. It also is more comfortable for women with lower sensitive cervix’s or who have sensitive bladders. Because the smaller size holds far more than a super-plus tampon, even women with heavy flow can use the Lunette Cup Model 1 if they have low cervix’s.
Lunette’s Positioning Lunette is positioned in the lower part of the vaginal canal, unlike tampons or some cup brands. Lunette’s Report Card Lunette scored the highest when compared to other menstrual cups in an independent, international customer satisfaction survey. The users were asked which cup(s) they owned and if they were satisfied with it/them. Lunette received the highest percentage of satisfied customers – 95% – compared to other brands. In a recent user survey, 88 % of all respondents believed that their quality of life during menstruation had increased while using Lunette.
All Lunette products, including Lunette menstrual cups, Feelbetter Liquid Wash, and Moodsmooth Body Cream, have the coveted, Key Flag, an award and certification of distinction for superior products produced in Finland, issued by the Association for Finnish Work. This association has been promoting and regulating Finnish manufacturing, products and innovations for over 95 years. When issuing the Key Flag, all costs accumulated up to the shipping of a product at the factory gate are observed.
I have seen cups sold on auction sites which looks like Lunette but are packed differently. Yes, unfortunately there are illegal copies of Lunette menstrual cups. Most design innovations through history have had to fight the possibility of illegal copies made in China and other countries. You can protect yourself from imitations by shopping on our site or working directly with qualified retailers. Lunette cups are made in Finland by strict quality procedures from medical grade silicone. Menstrual cups made in illegal factories can be guilty of not adhering to child labor or anti-sweatshop laws. Team Lunette says, if they can’t respect their own people, why would they worry about respecting our stringent production codes? 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 silicone of poor quality or even from plastic. Lunette menstrual cups are trademarked and design protected. We are working with customs officials around the world to stop the shipment of counterfeits, and preventing their sale and distribution. We encourage you not to engage with these unethical companies by buying products that are cheap imitations of Lunette.
Beware of purchasing Lunette products on eBay, and other auction websites. Authorized Lunette retailers are not permitted to sell products on auction sites, which would render whatever you buy, counterfeit. Lunette only allows qualified retailers to sell our products, and only if they offer them at full price. A good rule of thumb: if the price looks too good to be true, it’s not an authentic Lunette.
