A slew of sustainable period products has showcased great potential to change the conversation and attitude around menstruation in Malaysia.

Better for your body as well as the environment, Bloody Good Shop is perfect for those who’d like to switch out their pads and tampon. The brand highlights their notable menstrual cup that’s made from 100 per cent medical-grade silicone, an alternative to period care that’s comfortable and easy to use. The cup collects blood rather than absorbs it, allowing your vagina to stay naturally moist and at a healthy pH level.

For beginners, we’d recommend opting for the Ruby Cup because of its small and soft standard-size cups. They also offer other alternatives such as period underwear, which also helps to break stigmas that surround reproductive health in Malaysia.

The Hive

As the pioneer zero waste store in Malaysia, The Hive Bulk Foods is determined to encourage sustainable living for the betterment of our planet. With that in mind, they started offering The Hivette, Malaysia’s first local menstrual cup and period underwear. Without a doubt, these period care options are an environmentally-friendly alternative to pads and tampons, and also a solution to plastic problems on Earth.

Reliable and comfortable, Refined’s period care options let you stay comfortable and confident throughout the time of your month. We personally love their period underwear, which has a built-in, leak-proof lining to absorb period, light leaks, discharge and colour. But, they also have breathable, absorbent and naturally anti-bacterial pads and liners that are soft and comfortable.
