Born from a mission to find the perfect fit

To explain where we are today, we have to rewind a little, back to the 1950s, in fact.

In 1954 gynaecologist Dr. Judith Esser-Mittag was the first woman to design a tampon. Her careful research and innovative thinking created a tampon designed to fit the female anatomy perfectly. Her revolutionary widthways expanding design remains the hallmark of Lil-Lets tampons.

Since then, we've been passionate about understanding women's* bodies better and have listened and learnt from you. We go through so many changes in our lives, from first periods through to menopause.

Every body is unique

It's amazing what our bodies can do. We know that one size doesn't fit all, which is why our wide range of product are designed to fit your individual intimate care needs, life choices and life stages.

We've put 60 years of knowledge into our product designs, but that means nothing unless we help you understand your body needs better. That's why we education and expert advice is fundamental in helping you navigate evey one of life's periods, comfortably and confidently, so you can choose what works for you.
