Healthfab was founded with the mission of 'Providing affordable solutions for a healthy and sustainable human life'. As our first project, we have chosen to provide women with a comfortable and eco-friendly alternative to Sanitary pads.
According National Family Health Survey 2015-16, it is approximated that there are 336 million menstruating women in India and 36 percent of them use disposable sanitary pads. This totals to 121 million women. A single woman can generate up to 125 kg of non-biodegradable Sanitary waste through her menstruating years alone! Studies have shown that one sanitary pad could take from 500 to 800 years to decompose. Hence it was clear that this critical issue needs immediate attention.
We did a lot of study to find out the perfect period product for Indian women, followed by a global market research of the sanitary hygiene industry. We could clearly feel the need of a period panty that works for Indian women. We conceptualized the product and after some iterations, a comfortable and eco-friendly period underwear was developed. We got it tested by many Indian women and their feedback was amazing! Thus the GoPadFree was born.
At Healthfab, our research is on and will be!
