Meika Hollender has helped revolutionize the personal care industry and redefine the stigmatized nature of sexual wellness for women.


The Food and Drug Administration doesn’t require feminine care products, such as tampons, to have their ingredients disclosed, even though they spend a combined six years inside the bodies of women around the world. Overall, the feminine care industry is selling sexual wellness products that aren’t catered towards women’s health; they often contain harmful ingredients and perpetuate a destructive narrative around female sexuality. 

Enter our savior in sustainable, affordable, safe sexual health products: Meika Hollender. Meika revolutionized the personal care industry and redefined the stigmatized nature of sexual wellness for women through her company, Sustain.
