Miacup South Africa is a 100% privately-owned corporation based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Founded in 2007, our mission is to give women the freedom that they've never had with traditional feminine hygiene products. We want to show women that they can demand more from an industry that has seen little real innovation and few real improvements since the introduction of the tampon in the early 1900s.
We are dedicated to ethical business practices and to the protection of the environment. While profitability is, naturally, essential to our future, we are not a public company and are therefore not bound to uphold the interests of our shareholders above all else. We truly believe that business without profiteering or exploitation is possible; that success will naturally come with real customer satisfaction and superior products.
Convenient, reliable, safe, environmentally responsible, and cost effective: Miacup is a breakthrough in feminine hygiene and represents the first ever real alternative to traditional tampons and pads. For years, women have grown accustomed to dreading their period; to substandard, antiquated products that cost them a fortune over their lifetimes.
Miacup is a soft, highly pliable medical-grade silicone "cup" that is compactly folded and then easily inserted low in the vagina. There, it unfolds and creates a secure seal which allows it collect almost three times the amount of menstrual fluid that an average tampon or sanitary pad can absorb. The process is gentle on your body, clean, comfortable and highly reliable.
When the cup is full, it can be easily removed, emptied, wiped or washed clean and reused. Between cycles it can be sterilised by placing in boiling water or wiping with rubbing alcohol. A single cup can give years of service: paying for itself many times over and keeping hundreds or even thousands of disposable menstrual products out of landfills.
Unlike tampons, which often contain chemicals or release fibres, Miacup is made from the same silicone material used for permanent surgical heart-valve implants, is completely inert, suitable for women with latex allergies, and not associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).
Since Miacup South Africa is confident that women who try it will love it, Miacup is shipped with a 6-month satisfaction-or-money-back guarantee when purchased directly from www.miacup.co.za.
