Hi all :D

Another French cup, Claricup!
http://www.claripharm.com/fr/produit/claricuptm-taille-s

There are 2 sizes, and the cup has 4 holes. It looks close to the Si-Bell..
And it claims to be the only cup made of "anti-microbial" medical silicone, hem?
Cheers x

ooooh! I wish they'd give measurements somewhere (I can sort of read French but didn't see stats anywhere on the page)

Yes, the cup is truly identical to the Si Bell. They took Yuuki's concept of selling the cup with the infusion box. They say it is antimicrobial medical silicone, but from the looks of it, unlike Yuuki's the infusion box has no vent holes. Every cup company discourages storing the cup in a seales container. Interesting. Also there is no life span for this antimicrobial cup. I love the color though. Reminds me of my purple fleurcup. I may just get one to see.

Oh at the end of the "Comment nettoyer et entretenir Claricup™ ?" part, it's written the cup can last for 5 years.^

If the stem length is the same, and someone buys one then decides it's not for them and sells on mc_sales...I may have to bite. Particularly if it's slightly firmer than the Si-Bell and we won't have a repeat of my stem-snapping-off situation. While I prefer pink over purple, I'm also a fan of any cup I can actually reach to remove :)

Utterly true, about the Si Bell likeness. But the Si Bell company did sell their cup mold to other companies, such as the ones that hold Natu, the Lithuanian Amulette, (and maybe the Farmacup, too ??), maybe even others?
Thus maybe ClariPharm is one of them ?

Also, they point out the Claricup is not for off menstrual period use. While some women precisely wear their cup during ovulation time, for instance..

If someone buys this cup, please post about the dimensions and softness/stiffness! + pictures, love pictures! I'm considering investing in a Si-Bell, but if they're the exact same, I like this color better :)

Kind of annoying that they don't give more details on the home page though, like the dimensions and what they actually mean with anti-microbial. And that there's no info in English for us non-french-speakers - google translate can only get one so far: "The toilets do not necessarily sink to rinse his Claricup ™ and recover" :D

To be honest there is nothing really unusual in the description compared to other cups?
Size-wize they recommend small for women under 30 or women over 30 who have given birth by C-section and large for women over 30 or women under 30 who have given birth vaginally.

In terms of sterilization they give 2 methods:

- place cup stem down in the box. cover with water to the line, leave the lid open and microwave for 5 min / 750 Watt.
- immerse cup in boiling water for 7 minutes

They say the claribox is dishwashersafe

They do advise however to sterilise the cup morning and evening during your period, using one of the 2 methods as above

They also sell a gel which can be used for cleaning the cup.

HTH

Hi! :o)
You can find more info on this French page : http://www.easycup.fr/description_ClariCup-33.php
Except there's a mistake for the stem length, on the large cup (it is 23mm and not 30).

Thus the small cup truly has a small diameter, too!

It does seem to be firmer than the Si-Bell. (I have to compare my large Claricup with my large SB, but indeed, squishing it, in particular the base of the Clari feels sort of stiff.)

The anti-microbial agent is silver. :D

The instructions say the cup must be emptied every 4 to 8 jours.

*every 4 to 8 hours.
