LAIQA: Creating A Period Of Change

Published

on

Red is the color of strength.

Sanitary napkins have been in demand for all of time. Now, with the rising awareness on menstruation and feminine health, people even in the remote areas of India know about sanitary napkins.

Earlier, women did not know about it and had to find other cheaper and more viable options. Today the scenario is different. There are organizations working to make eco-friendly sanitary napkins that reach the vast majority of the country.

One such brand that is doing some lovely work is LAIQA; a homegrown line of sanitary napkins founded by Monica Bindra, Nazish Mir and Ali Mir.

LAIQA breaks many a barrier by introducing BODO i.e. buy one donate one. For every pack of pads sold, LAIQA donates one pad to a lesser-privileged menstruating girl or woman. To make their brand more accessible, LAIQA has paired up with 3 NGOs on a voluntary basis.

‘Good For Her, Good For Earth’. Earlier, pads were mostly plastic and harmful to the female genitalia. LAIQA offers an effective solution to this by lessening the use of plastic in the napkins to just 7% – making them biodegradable.

Menstruation is not easy for everyone as the flow varies from woman to woman. However, LAIQA has taken into consideration all these factors and created 4 types of individual or combo packs.

1. a pack of 10 Ultra-thin day pads, designed for moderate flow
2. a pack of 10 Cosy-fluff night pads, designed for heavy flow 
3. a pack of 20 Panty-liners, designed for everyday discharges and spotting
4. a Combo box of 10 day + 5 night pads, designed for the duration of your period, also customizable according to personal preference.

The pads have a top layer of high quality feather-soft top sheet and a breathable bottom sheet. LAIQA swears by feminine hygiene and believes in utmost comfort, making their products rash-free, chlorine-free and fragrance-free. This prevents UTIs and yeast infections.

LAIQA is here to offer a hassle-free service for your period. Their subscription model is available on their website, and can also be accessed via their hotline number+919891310451 where in the pad is delivered to you within an hour in Delhi NCR and you can place orders for Pan India.

Subscription offers for you:
1. 10% off on 3 months subscription,
2.15% off on 6 months subscription and,
3. 20% off if you subscribe for 12 months.

Rest assured, the pack/packs will be delivered to you every month in advance or in bulk, whichever you prefer – and always just in time for your period.

LAIQA is breaking the stigma around menstruation, offering eco-friendly pads, and making them available to marginalized sections of society while also offering an option to customize the pads according to one’s flow. So here’s hoping you’re ready for your period of change!
