The new era of women's wellness & health
TULIPON BY GALS BIO
Using 21st Century Technology to Handle the Eons Old Eve Curse
The new way to handle menstruation | Once a month for about 40 years the woman's body experiences bleeding: "Mother nature's gift". There are only three available means in the market to handle menses: Tampons, Menstrual cups, and external absorbents. Gals Bio developed a new way of handling the monthly bleeding that combines the best attributes of tampons with the best attributes of menstrual cups.
We call it: Tulipon
"Turning Lemons to Lemonade" | Tulipon collects the monthly secretions like a Menstrual Cup but it is used just like a tampon with an applicator. Moreover, Tulipon's proprietary novel technology will be able to monitor and screen women's health based on biomarkers found within the collected secretions.
