The Tampliner, developed by U.K.-based Callaly, was presented at Hygienix. The patented feminine hygiene device combines a tampon and a built-in mini-liner between a labia, which gives the wearer extra protection from leaks without the bulk and bunching of a bigger liner. The mini-liner is held in place by a patented virtual applicator for clean insertion and removal.
The patented Tampliner was invented by a U.K.-based gynecologist after 30 years of listening to patients and their concerns with managing their periods. He found that seven out of 10 women did not trust their tampon not to leak. After teaming up with a fashion technologist, who knew how products can work with a women's skin, and going through hundreds of prototypes, the company developed a product that features a three part system—a tampon, a pad portion that fits to the labia and a pull string. The product is medical quality, hypoallergenic and biodegradable. It is made from organic cotton.
Tampliner is currently available in the U.K.
