Saalt started with a phone call its founder, Cherie, made to an aunt in Venezuela, where pads and tampons had not been available in stores for years. She immediately thought of her daughters and what she would do if she found herself in the same situation. The dependence she and others had on disposables kept her up at night. When she went to source a bulk order of menstrual cups, she couldn’t find one that met her ideal criteria. So she started custom designing her idea of the perfect cup. Hand sketched drawings turned into fourteen design iterations, and in February of 2018, Saalt launched with the Saalt Cup.
The name Saalt represents something that is natural and essential for our bodies. They, like us, believe the best approach to period care should be just as natural, distinct, simple, and elemental.
The Saalt menstrual disc is designed to be the most comfortable and easiest reusable disc to insert and remove. Because is does not rely on suction to seal and rather, positions behind your pubic bone, it’s ideal for those with bladder sensitivities, a weak pelvic floor or a low or high cervix, or if you are finding it difficult to hold in a menstrual cup. It sports a custom finger-notch that is designed to make removal a breeze. The disc can be worn with an IUD, when used as instructed.
Go ahead—swim, hike, bike, run, sleep or enjoy no-mess period sex. Because hey! Periods happen, sex happens, and period sex happens. If uncertain that this product is for you, take the Saalt test to see which cup (or disc) would fit your body and lifestyle best. Also, the Saalt YouTube channel is a great resource if you need to troubleshoot or learn more about your Saalt product. Have a Happy Period!
