Merula is a German brand for menstrual cups and accessories. Menstrual cups are an environmentally friendly alternative to disposable products such as tampons and sanitary towels. Many women also opt for a menstrual cup because it is an economic choice, as you can do years with a Cup.
The founder of the Merula Cup - Merle-Marie Forstmann - heard about the existence of a promising alternative to tampons and sanitary towels: the menstrual cup. She then delved deeper into the subject and from 2014 to 1016 she advised women on the choice and use of menstrual cups. The wishes and ideas they received from these women were the sources of inspiration for the founding of Merula. In Latin, Merula stands for a blackbird, which is "Merle" in French. The first Merula Cups came on the market in early 2017.
The idea behind the Merula Cup is that the menstrual cup suits as many women as possible so that long-term measurements and advice are no longer necessary. In addition, the Cups are meant to be attractive to see. The Merula Cup was created with close contact with Merula Cup users and their feedback during the development phase was very important and remains a constant core part of their business philosophy.
The Merula menstrual cup is produced in Germany and is made of 100% medically certified silicone without chemical additives such as plasticizers and free from ingredients.
