Is The DivaCup sanitary?

Yes. The DivaCup is made from top quality, healthcare grade silicone, which is 100% plastic-free, BPA-free and odorless. It is non-absorbent and does not disrupt one’s natural vaginal environment. The vagina is self-cleansing and continually producing fluid that “flushes” the vagina. Tampons (rayon and cotton) absorb this protective fluid and can disrupt the normal acidic vaginal environment.

Remember to wash and rinse your hands before inserting and removing your DivaCup. Wash your DivaCup well with The DivaWash or a low or balanced pH, unscented soap and warm water at least twice a day. The best cleaning agent to use is The DivaWash. We have formulated it to be pH balanced at 5.5, which is best for the cup and you, as it does not leave residue. Also, it should be boiled for five to ten (5 -10) minutes at the end of each cycle.
