We Are Living In a New Era:
WHY SHOULD WE STILL CONTINUE TO PURCHASE
CHEMICAL BASED PERIOD PRODUCTS?
YOUR VAGINAL AREA IS THE MOST ABSORBENT
PART OF YOUR BODY.
Using organic cotton based period products is safer to use on/within your skin and reduces the risk of rashes, allergies, bacteria growth & Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).
Using generic brands not only are harmful to your body, but also to the environment.
A total of 2.4 billion period products are disposed each year in Malaysia alone - filling up our landfills.

MEET THE FOUNDER
In 2017, Malisse Tan was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer when her daughter Aleya was just 4 weeks old. After completing chemotherapy, Malisse had become more conscious of the products she was using, and set about understanding what they were made of.
Being a tampon & pantyliner user herself and knowing that the vaginal area is the most sensitive part of the body, she realised that she either didn’t understand the ingredients listed on the packaging, or couldn’t find the ingredients listed at all!
As a fierce advocate for women empowerment, Malisse believed life had given her a second chance and she wanted it to be purposeful - to be a catalyst for change and do her part in creating something impactful for women’s menstrual health.
