Swedish start-up Comfydence sets out to revolutionize feminine care in Europe
- premium absorbing panties for periods, incontinence, discharge and sweat available to consumers in EU countries
Comfydence was the first Swedish brand to launch absorbing panties (or period panties) in the Scandinavian market in 2020. Less than a year later they now expand their e-commerce with a site in English offering shipping all over EU and a generous 60 - Day Money Back Guarantee.
Founders, Linda Stoltzhammar & Anna Hellström, describe themselves as two ordinary middle-aged women with too much experience of leaks, stains, and normal body functions. They first discovered period panties by accident in 2019 and were both intrigued by the concept.
- We loved the idea of absorbing panties! Periods, bladder leaks, discharge and postpartum bleeding are natural parts of women’s life yet the choice in protection is very limited. Washable panties that replace disposables and keep you fresh, safe, and comfortable through this - is just brilliant, says Linda.
Linda & Anna first tried a wide variety the period panties available online but found that many were either unreliable, uncomfortable, or not sustainable enough. So, the two Swedish women contacted suppliers, developed new styles, and learned how to start and manage an e-commerce. Their brand, Comfydence and the e-commerce went live in December 2020.
Comfydence today has a range of panties in 12 styles, with different levels of absorption and in sizes ranging from XXS to 3XL. All the styles have an inside of certified organic cotton and as opposed to many international brands, the panties have no antibacterial treatment (silver or other biocides). On all styles the protective layers are covering all the way to back waist band to provide extra safety. The panties have a long lifetime and are packed in a smart and reusable textile bag.
- We have selected the materials very carefully and we have given extra attention to sustainability. There is a strict code of conduct for our partners, and we donate part of the sales to the fight on period poverty. But the most important aspect is that our panties are functional and comfortable. Otherwise, they will just not be worn says Anna.
- We have been completely overwhelmed by the positive the response in Sweden and know our panties can have a positive impact on behaviors and planet. We now look forward to reaching more women and making their life a bit easier and a bit more sustainable say the two entrepreneurs.
