About Us

We're determined that no one should be limited by their body

When our founder, Alison Wood, was conducting research in the Homa Bay area of Kenya, she realised that many school girls were engaging in transactional sex just so they could get sanitary pads and continue to go to school while on their period.

Determined to find a sustainable solution she teamed up with Enactus Edinburgh and began working with a team to research different options. We launched a product trial in Kenya in February 2018. Feedback from schoolgirls was hugely positive, both about its comfort and on the way it benefited their education. Today we have grown across three communities, working with 32 local Lily Ladies, educating girls on menstrual health and selling pads.

Our Company

reusable pad on underwear

When we were asking friends to trial the pads in the UK, everyone said the same thing – our pads were more comfortable than what they currently used. We realised that for too long pads on the British market had stayed their same, people worry they show through clothing, find they rub their legs or itch and are concerned about the waste they generate. 
So two years on, a lot of research and textile experts and we’ve made our reusable pads. They feel like underwear, are super thin and absorb twice the amount of a disposable pad. After wearing they can be popped in the washing machine, dried on the line / radiator and are good to go! 

For every pad sold in the UK, 10% of the sale is donated to our charitable arm to ensure no one is disadvantaged by their body
