The AngelCup menstrual cup seems like one of the best Hispanic backed personal hygiene products made in Mexico, but it’s still not very popular in the USA. Let’s see why, how does it rate and if you should try it or not.
About the AngelCup
AngelCup menstrual cups are made of 100% medical grade-silicone. The brand entered the market only 2 years ago, in 2013, but it already benefits from FDA approval and various suppliers around the world sell it. Like most similar products, the cup is available in 2 different sizes:
- Small (Chica): it holds up to 15 ml and it has 40 mm diameter. At 60 mm length (10 mm the stem and 50 mm the cup), it was designed for the young women. If you’re under 30 or you have never had a natural birth, it might be for you.
- Large (Grande): it holds up to 25 ml and it has 45 mm diameter. At 70 mm length (14 mm the stem and 56 mm the cup), it was designed for women over 30 or for those who went through at least one natural birth.
One thing AngelCup menstrual cups are popular for is their hypo-allergenic and certified bio-compatible gel silicone. The product is shaped similar to one of its main competitors – NaturCup – but with an allegedly smoother contour. The innovation resides, however, in the special egg-shape of the stem, said to make the extraction much easier.
The brand puts effort not just in the manufacturing of the product, but also in the design of the package. When you order an AngelCup you will get a joyful package together with a special cloth bag for easy and subtle storage.
Their website – despite it’s in Spanish – is full of details and they seem to have a rather strong online community. Their very active Facebook page is where you want to go to hear straight from those who use it.
Finally yet importantly, the product comes with a 6-month warranty that covers ship-delivery damages, accidentally ordering a wrong size (provided you haven’t used the cup yet) or manufacturing damages. The manufacturer claims a 5-year durability and guarantee, which is a rare thing on the market.
A first but not major flaw is the price – at $40 a package, the cup has a rather average price and you can definitely find cheaper models.
