The Woman's Company: Making Sustainable Feminine Hygiene a Reality
For Women, By Women
Can we all agree that some things are just harder for women? There is no debate about the fact that hygiene is one of them. We bet every woman reading this has been in a situation where they needed to attend nature’s call but could not because of lack of clean facilities. (Sorry nature, we can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Because we don’t have access to a clean toilet.)
Women don’t have the liberties as men do. (Cue the eye roll.) Personal hygiene is equally necessary for everyone. Why is it more expensive for us then? Women all over the world pay way more for hygiene products than men do. From sanitary pads to razors, the divide is evident. In India, the controversial and unnecessary 12% Period tax was finally done away with, in 2018, after months of campaigning.
We believe that intimate hygiene should not be seen as a privilege but a basic necessity. Where menstruation is already a taboo subject, making feminine products unaffordable simply adds insult to injury.
Best Feminine Hygiene Products
The Woman’s Company (TWC) offers products that cater to the needs of women. Their sustainable products are safer for you and also the planet.
Zero chemicals + Eco-friendly = Happier you and happier earth.
Organic Period Essentials
Single-use, non-biodegradable sanitary products are thrown in landfills, where they stay for years to come. What can we do to avoid that? Well, we can switch to its sustainable counterpart: menstrual cups. By using a menstrual cup, you don’t have to worry about changing it every few hours. Oh, and you can also wear your white clothes without worrying about ruining them. Made with silicone, TWC's menstrual cups are safe, secure, and require way less effort.
We understand that not all women can use menstrual cups for various medical reasons. This is where organic sanitary pads come in. No more using sanitary pads that are made from chemicals and can cause rashes. TWC offers organic cotton-made pads which come with biodegradable wrapping to be used at the time of disposal.
Not that we have to shave our legs/arms/underarms, but if you prefer to do it for yourself, TWC also offers eco-friendly razors. Made with bamboo, the TWC original razor provides you with a pain-free and eco-friendly hair removal alternative. Because the bamboo razor is built to last longer, it will stay away from a landfill for a long time.
What Women Want…
There is a lack of awareness and unnecessary discomfort surrounding the topic of intimate hygiene. Believe it or not but Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections that a large percentage of women experience. As women, we need affordable products that cater to our needs; and that can come from those who understand them the best- women. At the same time, we also need to be mindful of the waste we generate. The Woman’s Company offers us just that. Products made for women, by women. Their goal to create an eco-conscious consumer and to leave a better planet for our children and grandchildren sweetens the deal.
