PMS is real. PMS (= Premenstrual Syndromes) affects more than 75% of all menstruating women. It usually occurs in the luteal phase of the menstruation cycle - hormones are being released from the ovaries to signal that the body is not expecting a pregnancy. Unfortunately, this can cause over 300 symptoms, that vary from women to women. Therefore, it was not possible yet to find one suitable remedy for everyone.
We are presenting you La Box, the first PMS Subscription Box that contains a set of products to target individual PMS symptoms. Women (or their partners/friends) go on our website, where they create a profile and give information about their appearance (hair color/ skin color), some of their preferences and they select their most pressing PMS symptoms. According to that, we create a personalized box that is to be delivered at the start of the luteal phase.
For example, if a woman is claiming she suffers from mood swing - we provide her with vitamins that are known to be mood booster, if it is skin blemishes - we have the right skin care products and for body irritations - a handmade organic body soap will help.
In addition, we want to build a community that talks more openly about PMS, inspires females and eventually makes them feel empowered. We want to go on a self-love journey with our customers to reduce PMS on a long-term and prevent mental health issues such as PMDD.
An inspiration we are offering are the success stories of the founders of the products in our box, as we are making sure that La Box mainly contains products from female-led companies. By doing this, we want to highlight the gap of females in entrepreneurship and motivate girls and women to do whatever they want.
