Tulipon by Gals Bio:

The monthly bleeding is not perceived or celebrated as the source of life, fertility, or health, but rather it is associated negatively with pain, stress, uneasiness, queasiness, disgust, burden, fear and alike.

In Gals Bio we are changing this reality, by changing the perspective from natural affliction to natural biopsy. 

Gals Bio is developing Tulipon: the "Holy Grail" of vaginal hygiene devices that solves two eons old problems:

A new branch in women wellness and health

Tulipon is an innovative, disposable, biodegradable, vaginal platform used like a regular tampon with an applicator that:

Collects: Tulipon collects the vaginal effluents better/safer/longer than any other tampon. 

Protects: Tulipon Pro will monitor and screen women wellness & health based on biomarkers found in this "Mother's Nature Monthly Gift"
