Is the Cup Material Safe?
The silicone used in Lunette is not the same type of liquid silicone that is used in breast implants. Lunette silicone is soft and silky, yet solid and poses no risk of leaking. It's toxin-free, durable, and in no way harmful to human tissue.
Does Lunette Contain Phthalates, Bisphenol A or Heavy Metals?
No, Lunette (clear and colored versions) is manufactured from highest quality medical grade silicone and it does not contain any phthalates, bisphenol A, or heavy metals.
Are There Illegal Copies of Lunette Circulating? I have seen cups sold on auction sites which looks like Lunette but are packed differently.
Yes, unfortunately there are illegal copies of Lunette menstrual cups. Most design innovations through history have had to fight the possibility of illegal copies made in China and other countries. You can protect yourself from imitations by shopping on our site or working directly with qualified retailers. Lunette cups are made in Finland with strict quality control from medical grade silicone. Menstrual cups made in illegal factories can be guilty of not adhering to child labor or anti-sweatshop laws. Team Lunette says: if they can't respect their own people, why would they respect our stringent production ethics?
Also products may claim to be made from medical grade silicone when they actually aren't. Medical grade silicone is more expensive, so many of these cheap copies are made from silicone of poor quality or even from plastic. Lunette menstrual cups are trademarked and design protected. We are working with customs officials around the world to stop the shipment of counterfeits, and preventing their sale and distribution. We encourage you not to engage with these unethical companies by buying products that are cheap imitations of Lunette.
Auction Sites — How to Be Sure it's a Lunette
Beware of purchasing Lunette products on eBay, and other auction websites. Authorized Lunette retailers are not permitted to sell products on auction sites, which would render whatever you buy, counterfeit. Lunette only allows qualified retailers to sell our products, and only if they offer them at full price. A good rule of thumb: if the price looks too good to be true, it's not an authentic Lunette.
Why is There no Mention of the Finnish Health Authorities on your Website? Is Lunette Safe?
When choosing a feminine protection device that lives with you, and in you every month, you need to make sure it's 100% safe and compatible with your body and lifestyle. Relax: the Lunette menstrual cup is safe, and made of silky-soft medical-grade silicone that's FDA approved. Our Finnish factory closely monitors the production of each and every cup to guarantee safety and performance. From raw materials to the finished product, Lunette wants to make sure that you're sure about what you put inside your body. But Team Lunette holds themselves to a superior level of standards beyond the letter of the law: Lunette products have been awarded the coveted the Key Flag Emblem, a prestigious certification lauding first-class products designed and manufactured in Finland. The 'Design by Finland' certification proves that our products are created here by Finnish designers. We're proud of our products, and we work hard to make sure we're offering our very best to the world of women (and our government agrees!)
At Work, I Can't Wash my Lunette with the Washing Liquid. Should I Wash the Cup with Perfumed Soap or Tap Water?
No. Perfumed soaps with unknown pH values might coat the cup with a layer of irritants that could damage the precious mucous membrane of the vagina. Some of these soaps may also contain agents that might damage the silicone. It's better to wash Lunette with tap water than use the wrong kind of soap. Lunette is smooth on the inside, making it easy to clean with water alone. When you and Lunette return home, consider our Feelbetter Liquid Wash — it's specially created to clean the cup gently and thoroughly without damaging the cup or irritating your body (plus it smells divine!).
Another Cup Manufacturer States that their Silicone Cup Needs to be Replaced Once a Year. Is this True for Lunette?
We're aware of competitors one-year-policy, but we don't think it's necessary to replace a Lunette that often. Lunette exceeds all expectations: it's made of the best quality of medical-grade silicone. You can safely use your Lunette for several years — there's no need to replace it annually, however the FDA recommends replacing the cup every two to three years. Some women choose to replace their cup over time due to aesthetic reasons, as cups have a tendency to discolor with age. You can prevent discoloring by always rinsing your cup with cold water before cleaning it using the Lunette Feelbetter Liquid Wash.
How Can I be Sure that Your Products are Manufactured in Finland?
All Lunette products, including Lunette menstrual cups, Feelbetter Liquid Wash, and Moodsmooth Body Cream, have the coveted Key Flag, an award and certification of distinction for superior products produced in Finland, issued by the Association for Finnish Work. This association has been promoting and regulating Finnish manufacturing, products and innovations for over 95 years. When issuing the Key Flag, all costs accumulated up to the shipping of a product at the factory gate are observed.
