About CYCLO

Our history

CYCLO is the first sustainable menstruation brand. And it emerged in 2016 from the hand of Paloma Alma with the aim of educating on how to live menstruation in a sustainable and healthy way, as well as facilitating access to ecological menstrual hygiene products.

Since Paloma had her first menstruation at the age of 12, she did not stop suffering from discomfort, infections, itching, menstrual pain, general malaise ... this not only made her suffer, but also made him hate her menstruation. Her until 2012 when she discovered the menstrual cup and cloth pads and this changed her life forever. She began a path of self-learning in which she discovered all the power that was in her menstrual cycle, she understood that the products that she used for menstruation were largely the cause of her discomfort and that there were many ways to manage menstrual pain.

The concept of "sustainable menstruation" had not yet taken root in Spain and the principle was complex. Later she, she together with Elise, her partner, she created CYCLO Sustainable Menstruation. Now CYCLO is much more than a brand of menstrual products. It is a reference site to help other women and menstruating people live their menstrual cycle and move through all stages of their lives in a more positive and sustainable way.

Our goal is that future generations receive quality Menstrual Education from school and can begin to live their menstruation without prejudice or taboos. Therefore, we do not stick only to the medical or biological aspect of menstruation, but we address it in a comprehensive way. For this, we created CYCLO School, the place where you will finally learn a menstrual education that you deserve.
