The Lunette Legacy
In 2004, a girl named Heli ordered a menstrual cup from an online shop. She encountered some problems using it, but was thrilled about the freedom, flexibility, and product possibilities. Heli had big ideas.
We’ve all heard the saying necessity is the mother of invention, and in this case, Heli Kurjanen, became the mother of Lunette, and now serves as the companies’ founder and owner. With laser vision and improved design, rooted in safety, ease, and comfort, (and compatible for women of every age, shape, size and childbearing stage) — Heli led the charge to create the world’s top menstrual cup.
In 2005, Lunette was brought to market in Finland, where it achieved strong sales, and by the end of that year, Lunette went online and international. In record time, Heli’s life was transformed: from housewife to successful, international femme-trepreneur, and market disruptor, bringing education, sunlight, and intelligent feminine protection solutions where few existed before. Heli changed everything about feminine protection — one cup at a time.
Today Lunette is sold in over 40 countries, and there are plans to expand further. One thing Heli (and Team Lunette) is sure of:
…as long as there are women, Lunette will offer safe, and efficient and eco-logical feminine protection — no strings attached.
"...I've got a secret that I want to share..."
was the title of an email that Elizabeth received from a girlfriend in 2007. Intrigued, she opened the email and found that her friend was using a "menstrual cup". She had only heard of a menstrual cup once before, but had never met anyone who used one, and didn't really know much about them. Her friend found these cups so wonderful, convenient and comfortable that she felt inspired to share this phenomenal product with her friends. The email had a link to Lunette...
Elizabeth, a qualified nurse and midwife, and her business partner Carol, a physiotherapist, set up EcoHealth in 2007. Based in Sydney NSW, the team at Lunette Australia has a passion not only for womens health, but also to help and inspire other women to be the best that they can be. The Lunette menstrual cup fits perfectly into this vision.
Europe and the States have known about menstrual cups for years. At Ecohealth we pride ourselves on bringing Lunette to Australia, and finally being able to offer you freedom from strings and wings like our overseas sisters!
