The monthly menstrual cycle is a challenge for many people. On top of the cramps, many have to worry about leakage and changing their protection frequently. Not only is this budget-heavy, disposable menstrual products are also uneasy for the environment. Successful entrepreneur, best-selling author and host of the Freedom Slay Podcast, Gaynete Jones, is here to tell you some good news as she launches her new menstrual cup brand, Best Periodt, that would help ease your monthly concerns.
To begin with, Jones has done thorough research on menstrual cups and was determined to fix what other products lacked. She worked with the best in the industry to create her U.S.A. made, OBGyn approved, FDA registered, Best Periodt cup, which was created in an ISO 13485 certified environment. One of the biggest highlights for users outside of the quality of the cup, may just be the capacity. “Regular tampons and pads hold 5ml of blood, super tampons around 12ml and most menstrual cups on the market today have a maximum capacity of 25-30ml for their largest size. Best Periodt offers two sizes. Our Size 1 cup holds up to 29ml and our Size 2, 40ml, which means less changes as menstrual cups can be worn up to 12 hours at a time,” Jones explained.
She divulged that her inspiration came after several unsuccessful experiences with menstrual cups and an interview with a successful product creator on her podcast. She got to thinking of a product she could create that solves a real problem for people. “I’ve known for a while now that menstrual cups are better for our bodies, the environment and our pockets, saving us money as they’re reusable, but I just couldn’t find one I was satisfied with – and I tried so many. So I decided to create my own solution to all the problems that I found others had. Outside of holding more, the Best Periodt cup has a 1-of-a-kind base and stem for easy insertion and removal, a hygienic counter-cute case instead of the cheap lint-producing baggies others come with. And is an education-focused brand so I wanted to ensure it came with a thorough booklet user guide that truly assisted cup purchasers. I also wanted a strong giveback component from the start — $1 from each cup sale goes towards ending child trafficking, donating to an anti-child trafficking charity annually that users help decide on. There is also an option on our site to donate a cup to a menstruator in need as period poverty is a very real issue everywhere.” Jones said.
For only $34.95, the one-of-a-kind, high-quality Best Periodt cup offers a real alternative to tampons and pads that is not only environmentally friendly but also financially friendly, time-saving and healthier for the vagina. “Our Best Periodt cups are made of 100% biocompatible medical grade silicone and collect the blood in a sanitary, safe way. This is compared to alternative period solutions that absorb it with cotton that is often chemically treated, which has been known to cause issues like dryness, disrupt PH balance, and in some cases, even create micro-tears in the vaginal wall” Jones shared, “Menstrual cups are healthier for your body, the environment and save you more money in the long run. And while it can be a bit of a learning curve – I like to keep it real, taking a few cycles to figure it out is totally worth it. Those that do, promise never to go back to pads and tampons and wish they made the switch sooner,” the Founder shares.
“Many people are curious about menstrual cups and feel hesitant to try them out due to the lack of information,” Jones shared, “Best Periodt makes it a point to be very active in answering customers’ queries through our website chat support, Instagram direct messages and emails. We also provide tutorials and information on our site and YouTube channel.” The Best Periodt YouTube channel doesn’t only equip prospective and current customers with education regarding their menstrual cups but also overall vaginal health. Also important to note is that a menstrual cup is also a safe option for menstruators who are active as it is great to use for any kind of activities including swimming, sleeping and hiking.
