Most of us have a period horror story. Whether it’s tampons falling out of our bags, a desperate late-night trip to the pharmacy, or the most feared: a period stain you’ve been blissfully unaware of all day (hello yes this is me!) - we’ve all been there.

First born in Melbourne, Australia, waaay back in 2005 as a result of my own frustrations with tampons always rolling around loosely in my handbag, Moxie now exists to make these kinds of days a little easier. Think quality tampons in refillable tins, reusable menstrual cups (that will last years and years if properly cared for - a serious eco period game-changer) and pads and liners made with biodegradable, plant-based fibres and a touch of silk (cos our vaginas deserve nothing by the finest!) - and you’ve got Moxie.

We don't mess around when it comes to our intimate care and are always upfront about what we deliver - we've worked hard to provide you with the best products we can, made from the best materials we can find. The balance between sustainability and product performance (without inflating prices - it's important we can be accessible to as many people as possible whilst being sympathetic to our planet) can be a challenging one; which is why we're constantly evolving to be better than we were yesterday. We're proud to say that we have never used any un-necessary plastic wraps outside (or inside) of our boxes and our packaging has always either been reusable or refillable. Our products are made using biodegradable materials where possible, or are made as sustainably as we can make them. It's not perfect (yet!) but it's progress - and there's way more to come.

A few things are for sure, though: we will never over-promise and under-deliver; we test all our products against the highest, strictest standards and don't launch anything that we don't stand behind 110%; we don't participate in 'green-washing' either. We recognise that no two periods are the same and that people prefer to period differently, so we do our best to provide choice. We hope you love our products as much as we’ve loved creating them for you.

But we're about more than just tamps in cute tins; we stand for women, fem-identifiers, the boys who bleed and anyone in between. We're fortunate to have a platform where we can openly discuss the issues that affect and are important to us and so we're going to use it. I invite you to join us in the convo and in the charge against dismantling the stigmas and taboos associated with our intimate health, whilst championing change and celebrating what it really means to have 'Moxie': guts, determination, grit, courage, spunk - and whatever else you want it to mean, or whatever it means to YOU. Together our voices, actions and choices are so, so powerful.

Welcome to the fam, Moxette (and to period peace-of-mind).
