Are menstrual cups, pads, or underwear better than tampons and sanitary pads?
The most important question is what is better, more comfortable or safer for you personally. We can tell you that studies have shown that 70% of women who use cups or reusable pads and menstrual panties experience less cramping during their periods.
In addition, the use of the menstrual cup has no adverse effects on the vaginal flora, as shown here in a summary of the results of 43 studies and 3319 participants.
When using our cups, pads and underwear, no chemicals enter the body through sweat or directly into the vagina. Keep in mind that tampons absorb natural secretions and can lead to dryness and infection. This is one reason to use reusable products that are safer for your body month after month and for years to come.
Who should use menstrual cups? What about pads and period underwear?
Cups are ideal for women with heavy menstruation, but can also be used by virgins. For added protection, you can use a washable pad or menstrual underwear.
All of these products are good to use if you are concerned about the waste that intimate products create, but also if you are concerned about having fewer chemicals absorbed by your body.
Cups, reusable pads and period underwear are cheaper than monthly products because you can use them for at least 2 years after you buy them.
How much money will I save using reusable period products?
35 years x 12 periods x 5 days average = 2100 days of period/ 5 years and 8 months of continuous period days – Crazy right?
4 period underwear/ day x 2100 days= 8400 period underwear
0.6 EUR/ pad x 8400 period underwear = 5040 EUR / IN A LIFETIME
FEMI.EKO® ’S PERIOD UNDERWEAR
In 35 YEARS you should change the period of Femi.eko sustainable products by about 7 times.
Let’s say you buy 6 period products during this time.
7 x 6 = 42 period underwear in a lifetime
25 EUR x 42 period underwear = 1050 EUR/ IN A LIFETIME
Are there any smells that I should be concerned about?
Cups prevent menstrual blood from coming into contact with the air so that bacteria do not form and thus odor does not develop.
Pads and menstrual underwear are made of safe materials that keep odors out, even though blood will always have a certain odor. We would say that odors are normal and okay, and encourage you to accept your body as it is – with its conditions.
Very importantly, our products should not be perfumed and you should not spray your intimate products or genital parts because perfume is not safe for the intimate area.
How fast does Femi.Eko® deliver?

Is Femi.Eko® also socially engaged?
First of all, we all contribute positively to the protection of our planet by buying appropriate products that are plastic-free, thus ensuring less waste in hygiene products.
Care for the Planet is not just a statement, but we have partnered with Trees For the Future to plant trees and create local farms that have a better impact on the air, soil and families at the same time.
We are also partnered with Better Vision to Africa in the fight against menstrual poverty in Africa by sponsoring cups, pads and menstrual underwear in an educational program for these women.

What packaging Femieko is using?
All our products come with the PLASTIC FREE promise. We do not coat our cardboard with plastic and use packaging made from FSC certified, 100% recyclable materials. Some of the cartons we use are also made of 100% recycled paper.
Do you want to take an extra step? To avoid unnecessary packaging waste, we have come up with an innovative method to deliver orders with more than 3 period underwear. If you choose our beautiful Naked box, we will deliver your period underwear in bulk without you having to get unnecessary packaging that would have ended up in the trash anyway, and as a reward you will also receive a -20% discount code for future orders.
For shipping, we use specially made biodegradable bags that are made from cornstarch or FSC cardbox.
Better for you, better for the planet!
