A Silky Cup is a type of feminine hygiene product which is made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), shaped like a bell and is flexible. It is worn inside the vagina during menstruation to catch menstrual fluid (blood). About every 4–12 hours (depending on the amount of flow), the menstruating woman removes the Silky cup from her vagina, empties the collected menstrual blood into a toilet or sink, washes the cup under running water and inserts it again. At the end of the monthly period, the cup can be sterilized, usually by boiling in water. Unlike tampons and pads, the cup collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it.

Silky Cup is the Indian market leader in the reusable menstrual cup market and largest menstrual cup manufacturer in India. Silky Cup has biggest manufacturing production line of the menstrual cup in India.[1]

In many countries across the world, menstruation can be a problem, as women and girls may have no access to hygiene products, or simply cannot afford them. These women often experience exclusion from society, and school, college or work can be disrupted or restricted due to lack of available solutions. Investigative studies identify one of the main causes of early school leaving as the lack of hygiene products available for menstruating women and girls. As a result, menstruation has a direct economic and educational impact. Silky cups are a solution that can help girls and women to be integrated back into their social lives. Silky Cup is a product and a social strategy that offers women in developing countries a lifelong solution and support.
