Period Panties | Menstrual Cups | Tampons | Pads + Panty Liners | Reusable Pads + Panty Liners | Recommendations

Every woman I’ve ever met remembers her first period, and usually has a story to boot. For me, I’ll never forget seeking the counsel of the school nurse on that day way-back-when. She handed over a pad essentially the size of a diaper. Oh, how times have changed! These days, pads have gotten thinner, tampons are now much more common, and new solutions like menstrual cups and period panties are taking the femcare market by storm. It’s a good time to be alive with a period!
Branch Basics’ three founders, Allison Evans, Kelly Love and Marilee Nelson, started the company to help others experience the power of the body’s innate ability to heal, which is something each of them experienced.

This led them to create a safe and effective nontoxic alternative for cleaning.
