New Menstrual Cup Brand-- "Copita"!

Here is a link to a website from Chile, where another new brand called Copita has popped up:

http://www.copitamenstrual.cl/ 

I think they are just getting started, I’m not even sure if they are completely launched yet.  There weren’t any purchase buttons on the website, they probably prefer orders based on email, at least for now.  Not sure of what payment methods would be. 

The website is in Spanish, but it says the cup can be worn up to 12 hours (but naturally, that depends on your flow).  With good care, it lasts up to 10 years.  They say DO NOT use with an IUD, and to sterilize by boiling for 3 minutes.  I didn’t see any sizing information, looks like it will just be one size, but no measurements, I mean.  It does say the capacity is about 35ml though. 

I also didn’t see any info on what its made of.  It just says 100% hypoallergenic.  I’ll email them and see if I can get more info.

As for the shape, it is rather “cone-like”, seems like it might be hard to pop open…  But its hard to tell.  I don’t see any grip texture, and by the look of things, the suction release holes are probably up pretty high. 
Interesting…
