Founded in Nov 2019 following the loss of a friend to uterine cancer, LiZZOM was established to educate women about the negative side-effects of chemical-rich period products and to give them a healthy alternative.
"We developed LiZZOM after extensively researching and studying menstrual hygiene and the impact of sanitary products on women and the environment. Data showed us that the majority of common period care products like traditional sanitary napkins, tampons, and devices like menstrual cups, are normally made of plastic and other harmful substances that may cause health issues to women in the long run.
"Some period products cause rashes and irritation to sensitive, intimate areas from the first use, while others are responsible for infertility and hormonal issues.
"Moreover, these products take over 500 years to decompose, posing a serious threat to the world we live in. With billions of women menstruating every year, finding a new, sustainable period product has become a pressing need. This is how LiZZOM was born."
