The story of Yoni is a personal one. But one I am happy to share. It changed my life, and it might change yours.

When I turned 30, a doctor told me I was developing cervical cancer. Don’t worry, I am fine now. But she also told me to switch to organic cotton tampons and pads, to avoid further irritation.

I had never really given much thought to what my tampons were made of. And when I tried to find out, I couldn’t. Most companies didn’t list the ingredients of their products on their pack.

As it turns out, there are no regulations on what materials can be used to make tampons or pads. I also discovered that not every product is made from healthy materials. Think plastics, chemicals, pesticides.

So we started Yoni. We make organic cotton tampons, pads and liners free from plastic, chemicals and shame. It’s our mission to bring women – and other people – in the know about all things vulva. Organic cotton is the vulva friendly choice.

What we do

  • We share knowledge about all things vulva.

    Do you know the difference between the vulva and the vagina? For many, reproductive anatomy is quite the mystery. We want to lift the veil and have honest conversations about menstruation, vulvas and vaginas, as well as sexual and reproductive health. Removing the taboo is a step towards equality.

  • We don't beat around the bush. We say it like it is.

    Periods are a reality for half of the world’s population. But somehow they still make for an uncomfortable chat. We want to start a proper conversation about menstruation so that women and people everywhere feel just fine when it comes to talking periods.

  • We make organic cotton tampons, pads and liners.

    Our products are free from plastic, chemicals and shame. We believe all women and people should know what their most intimate products are made from. That's why we list our ingredients on the pack. This sounds normal, but unfortunately it's not the standard. By leading the way at Yoni, we hope other companies will follow suit.

There's no I in Yoni,
oh wait...

Our small (but growing) team has a lot of big ideas. Ideas about empowering women, how to make the world more sustainable and how to do business ethically.
