The Lunette menstrual cup is safe. It is made of medical-grade silicone which is FDA approved for medical use. The cup is manufactured in a Finnish factory that closely monitors the production of each product to guarantee the safety of the materials used. The production of every Lunette menstrual cup can be tracked from the raw material to the finished product.
According to EU legislation, the menstrual cup isn’t a product that is to be controlled by The National Agency for Medicines; however, regular consumer protection laws do apply. This is why the Lunette menstrual cup isn’t able to include any label indicating the approval of the national health authority in Finland.
Lunette products have received the Key Flag emblem, a certification by The Association for Finnish Work for first-class Finnish quality products.
The type of silicone used in the Lunette menstrual cup is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This silicone is not the same type that is used in breast implants. The Lunette cup is made of a solid form of silicone like that used in heart valve devices, unlike breast implants which is made of liquid silicone. It is hypoallergenic, toxic-free, durable, and in no way harmful to human tissue. The Lunette cup is made of the best possible quality of medical-grade silicone. You can safely use the Lunette menstrual cup for several years – there is no need to replace it every year. FDA recommends replacing your cup every two or three years.
All Lunette menstrual cups, including our colored cups, are approved by the FDA.
Lunette is approved by the TGA, the Therapeutic Goods Administration, an Australian regulatory agency for medical drugs and devices. TGA’s rigorous standards are the reason the selection of menstrual cups available in Australia is very limited. The fact that the Lunette cup was able to obtain TGA approval is proof of its safety and quality.
The colored Lunette cups are not TGA approved. TGA listing is a very long and costly process, and all of our colored cups are limited edition products.
Our brand names and slogans such as Lunette®, Feelbetter®, Moodsmooth®, "For nicer periods" and "Have the time of your month" are registered trademarks of Lune Group Oy Ltd.
In an independent customer satisfaction survey, Lunette scored inarguably the highest compared to other menstrual cups. 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 Lunette User Survey from 2008, 165 respondents – the largest group ever studied - provided the Lune Group with important feedback on the cup. 88 % of all respondents believed that their quality of life during menstruation had increased while using the menstrual cup. 97% of respondents would recommend the cup to family and friends.
The respondents were between 17 and 49 years of age and of 19 different nationalities, and the user survey covered their experiences through a total of 1857 menstrual cycles.
