 “For so many women, their intimate skin is an afterthought, only prioritised when there is a ‘problem’ and they’re forced to use outdated feminine hygiene products which have ‘what’s wrong with her?’ associations. My vision is to get rid of this ‘feminine hygiene’ category altogether. I created Luna Daily to give women a choice about how they care for their bodies – as we say, from head, vulva, knees and toes.” Katy Cottam, Founder and CEO of Luna Daily. Image: Luna Daily
