statement

 

And I know what it's like to experience discrimination and feel shame for simply having a menstrual cycle.

 

founder

Menärchē connects consumers to the best clean, sustainable, and inclusive vagina-friendly brands. 

Through community and a curated marketplace using a rent-share model, we're centering menstruation as a natural process that deserves more than an aisle. 

 
The Problem""

 

Globally, 3.5 billion humans have monthly periods, and about 800 million of us menstruate daily. 

Stigma, taboos, and myths prevent people from opportunities to learn about menstruation and develop healthy habits. A lack of information about menstruation leads to damaging misconceptions and discrimination.

Causes

 

Solution

 

My goal is to improve the quality of life of menstruating women, girls, femmes, and gender expansive humans.

By creating a shame-free space for learning, with a carefully curated marketplace I want to empower menstruating humans to have a better period.

 

Community

 

After working in the non-profit sector, focusing on period poverty I discovered the exclusion of periods in wellness and lifestyle conversations.

It's my experiences from directing the #HappyPeriod organization and collaborating on policy and advocacy programs centered on menstrual equity, that inspired me to create Menärchē.

Goal

 

Think of it as a Sephora for periods!

Using a rent-share (vendor) model, our marketplace showcases a line-up of high quality essentials like menstrual cups, reusable tampon applicators, vulva balms, teas, hemp liners, cloth pads, period panties, supplements, pain-relief wearables, and much more.

Our unique solution uplifts companies driving the femtech revolution by promoting our community to discover wellness products for their vaginal health.

Cycle care brands have the chance to rent space in Menärchē, from a shelf or a section, with rates ranging from $300-$500/monthly. Brands keep 70%, while Menärchē keeps 30%, and 10% of that will be donated back to charity.
