Merula Cup, the only real one size menstrual cup on the market.
More ecological, economical, comfortable and healthier than tampons and pads. Also more adaptable than other menstrual cups.
The Merula menstrual cup was invented in 2016 and first sold at the beginning of 2017.
Merle-Marie Forstmann, the inventor of the Merula Cup, provided advice to women on the selection of menstrual cups and how to use them for several years. The quintessence of all the wishes and ideas that these women expressed during this time gave her inspiration for the Merula Cup A cup that would fit as many women as possible, eliminating the need for lengthy measuring (during the period) and advice and also one that was attractive to look at.
Almost a year passed from the first sketch to the completed product. Close contact to Merula Cup users and their feedback during the development phase was especially important and remains a constant core component of our company philosophy.
The first Merula Cups went onto the market at the beginning of 2017.
