Ever wonder if there was an alternative to using tampons and pads? JuJu is a reusable menstrual cup made from medical-grade silicone and is an environmentally friendly, cost-saving and healthier alternative made right here in Australia.
Consider this, if during your period, you use five disposable products a day for five days, this equates to 300 disposable pads or tampons a year and over 10,000 in your lifetime alone. These waste products go into our landfills and pollute our waterways. Now imagine a world with no disposable tampons or pads… it may sound like a small contribution, but by purchasing and using your own JuJu, you make a difference to the world we live in today and the world our children will inherit tomorrow.
JuJu is Australia’s first menstrual cup. Entirely made in Australia and owned by women. Brenda and her business partner established our company, Freedom Products, in 2009. We are a privately owned and operated eco-friendly company. Our goal is to minimize environmental waste and empower women by giving them healthier choices and inspiration. We want to raise awareness of a better alternative to disposable tampons and pads. We have designed and manufactured JuJu to be a liberating, innovative product that reduces environmental waste, costs you less and gives you more freedom than disposable feminine hygiene products currently on the market. We took great care and consideration when creating JuJu so that you get the very best product for your body and planet.
Menstrual cups are a gentle, reliable way to keep your body clean and comfortable. Used as a barrier, like a tampon, JuJu sits inside your vagina, but unlike a tampon, there are no external parts, no disruption to your body’s natural lubrication and no fibers left in or near the body that are breeding grounds for bacteria. JuJu is hypoallergenic, latex-free, odorless and free from harmful chemicals such as bleaches and absorption agents used in disposable tampons and pads. Made of soft, 100% medical-grade silicone, JuJu is reusable for up to 10 years.
Another great benefit of JuJu is that it can be worn at any point in your cycle, during heavy and light flows, and overnight. Because your menstrual cup will not lead to vaginal dryness, you can even insert JuJu before your period begins, so there is no chance of being caught off-guard. JuJu is available in two sizes depending on age, childbearing history, and pelvic floor-tone. JuJu can be worn by women of all ages.
JuJu is available for sale online with a RRP of $62. While this may seem expensive, it is a one-off investment that will last you for up to ten years. On average, Australian women spend more than $90 on disposable products each year, that’s more than $3,300 in a lifetime.
Many women haven’t heard of menstrual cups before and it takes a little getting used to the idea.
