Let’s be honest, as much as we try to go with the flow, life often has a way of adding things like period cramps and PMS into the mix to get in the way of your daily routine.
UK-based feminine care brand BeYou was founded with one driving purpose: to support menstruators through everything that comes their way throughout their cycle. They have compiled an award-winning all-natural range of game-changing products to fit into your daily routine including heat-free period pain relief patches and super-soft menstrual cups which are perfect for beginners.
Thoughtful Feminine Care
BeYou is all about being comfortable in your own skin and Celebrating Individuality Together™. It’s about finding common ground and unity, helping to understand each other rather than vilifying others based on innate differences. It’s about the right to not be judged and the willingness to celebrate what makes each of us so unique.
Through their collection of science-backed, natural products, BeYou seeks to close the gender gap in the medical system by empowering through education and normalising conversations about menstruation.
The BeYou Story
BeYou first began to take shape when their co-founder, Kru Patel, was period-shamed by a former male colleague for carrying around a hot water bottle. She took this moment of ‘shame’ and channelled it into a range of ground-breaking, taboo-busting products that support the everyday needs of women and menstruators.
Their hero product, the Monthly Patch, was created after Kru set out to develop a discreet and natural alternative to both hot water bottles and heat patches that lasts all day and fits perfectly into everyday routines which include sport, work, travel and education.
The Science of Nature
With a transparent approach to all of their products and ingredients, BeYou is determined to highlight that there are science-backed solutions out there that include natural, safe and toxin-free ingredients.
Meticulous in their choice of ingredients, you can feel rest assured that each and every BeYou product is formulated with only the best, sustainably sourced ingredients provided by Mother Nature herself and formulated by experts according to the strictest standards.

Heat Therapy vs BeYou patches
While hot water bottles or heat pads are a popular choice for soothing period cramps, did you know that heat should only be applied to the skin for a maximum of 30 minutes? This is because prolonged use can actually result in permanent tissue damage in some cases.
