In 2018 the team was redesigning a sanitary napkin incinerator for a college project. While conducting surveys, the team realized that most menstruators felt restricted and uncomfortable during their period. During this course, the team got exposed to the concept of menstrual cups. Research stated that a menstrual cup is a sustainable, hygienic & economical option. However, many menstruators, particularly South Asians, found it confusing and intimidating to use. The team took this as a challenge and redesigned the menstrual cup. The Onpery® Menstrual Cup launched on International Women's Day, 8 March 2021.

Our vision is to make Onpery® a global sustainable menstrual health. We want to solve problems related to discomfort, finance, and accessibility faced by menstruators. Sanitary waste management has been an ongoing issue for decades. There is limited knowledge about it amongst the masses. Due to this reason, Care Form Labs Private Limited decided to launch the Onpery® Menstrual Cup as the first product. The company will be expanding its product portfolio in the coming months. The company has concluded the product development stage and is exploring ways to spread awareness about the innovative design amongst potential users.
