The TWC urination stand and pee stick is made up of recyclable kraft Paper without any use of plastic or lamination. The stick is ergonomically designed, comfortable, convenient, biodegradable and environment friendly. Absolutely mess-free, the product’s perforated sides are customized to fit around a woman’s parts, leaving aside any fear of backsplashes and spillage and thereby reducing infections contracted by using public toilets.
The traditional sanitary napkins have been replaced with a customized to fit all shapes and curves – which educates women to accept the different phases that a woman’s body goes through during their menstrual cycle. The specialized Teenage Pad has been customized keeping in mind the body shape and size of a young girl starting her menstruation journey.
Speaking on the launch, Director, Founder & CEO, Anika Parashar,’ said “After having spent nearly two decades in the Women’s health and wellness space, I have been a witness to the gap in good quality intimate products for women which are environmentally friendly and less damaging to the complex world that we are living in. It’s scary to know that a single woman can generate up to 125 kg of non-biodegradable waste through her menstruating years alone and she is actually using those chemical rich products for one of the most intimate parts of her body. It was then that we decided to create and curate a set of products which we would be proud to use for ourselves and our daughters.
The Woman's Company aims to reach out to every woman out there and build spaces to cater to her wellness and hygiene while being mindful of the depleting environment”.
COO Roopam Gupta, said “We are super thrilled to announce “The Woman’s Company” on the very significant date of International Women’s Day to finally offer the best available products for women’s intimate hygiene. Also on this day we break the #ShareYourstory campaign to celebrate the journey of every woman who goes through various stages of change, growth and evolution in her life.”
As a young start up built by experienced management, we have a vision to create awareness about the harmful effects of the chemical ingredients that women tend to use on themselves by offering an array of biodegradable and safe on skin products!”
