LOLA turns two!

LOLA turns two!

This month, LOLA turned two!

The first time we met, before deciding to go into business together, we bonded over a simple question — “What’s in a tampon?” At the time, we talked about starting a tampon delivery service, and as we researched the industry, we realized that, after many dead ends, we couldn’t quite figure out the full ingredients list of the mainstream brands’ products.

When, after even more digging, we still couldn’t figure out what was in those innocent pink boxes at our corner drugstore, we decided it was time to create a new kind of feminine care brand. The kind that we would want to buy from as consumers. One that was totally upfront with consumers about ingredients, created products that were 100% natural, and was created by women, for women. After all, if we care about the ingredients in everything from our food to our face cream, why should tampons be any different?

And so, LOLA was born.

We spent our first year in business asking every woman we met if they knew what was in their tampons. But as the word about LOLA spread and we shared our mission with more and more women, something pretty amazing happened… YOU started asking US questions. What?! Suddenly, we weren’t just shouting about tampons from the rooftop (or the bathroom stall, as the case may be), but we were creating an actual conversation.

Suddenly, we weren’t just shouting about tampons from the rooftop (or the bathroom stall, as the case may be).

Some of these questions were about our plans to launch more products. So, to address these needs, in year two we launched four new products — non-applicator tampons, pads, liners, and, most recently, our First Period Kit.

Other questions were about reproductive health more broadly: How do I know if I’m fertile? Is my discharge normal? Am I experiencing perimenopause? These questions made us realize there was a white space that LOLA could address beyond just high-quality, natural period products. Going into year three, we’re aiming to create the first lifelong brand for your body.

What does that mean, exactly? Well, we want to address the complexities of every life stage of a woman’s reproductive health with a commitment to product transparency and a community built on candid dialogue about all of the things we don’t talk openly about.

It’s going to be an exciting year! Thank you so much for being a part of our early community — we truly wouldn’t be here without you. Have ideas about how we can better meet your needs? We’re always here — email us at help@mylola.com.

  • Congratulations and thank you for starting this product. For the first time in 30 years I’m able to wear a tampon and not worry about getting sick. Finally the peace of mind of knowing I’m using a healthy product on my body.
    All the best to you both in the future!
    P.S. could you make a panty liner a bit larger & wider than the one currently available? Us woman who have had multiple children’s need a bit more protection but don’t want a full pad.
    Thank you!
    All the best

  • Ladies, congratulations on 2 years of success! I am a happy subscriber to your products and thank all things Holy every time I reach under my sink that there is product there (and I don’t have to make a desperate run to the drug store). Question: I am a Social Worker at a Domestic Violence Shelter in the Dallas area. We thrive on donations for everything from clothes to soap to diapers to bras and YES tampons and pads. Recently we got a donation of those DREADFUL pads given to moms after the birth of a child. It is painful to me to apologetically hand a lady (who has most often fled their home as if it were on fire – with her children and the clothes on their backs) a giant diaper sized pad because it was all we have :-(…. and don’t let me get started on the tampon donations….. either very large and uncomfortable or too small to bother. I have an IUD so I don’t use my product fast enough before the next delivery is made so I take the unopened boxes to the shelter and hand out as many as I can…. now here is the question… do y’all (yes I’m from Texas :-)) make donations of products to non-profits? I would love to get y’all’s products into as many purses as we have (over 100 RIGHT NOW – with new ones every 30-45 days on average)!
    Thank you for considering my safety in providing me with these amazing products and for reading my very long comment! Again, CONGRATULATIONS, and may you both enjoy many more years of success!
