Origins of Nona
In its Latin origin, it means Nine. Nona represents the Roman goddess of pregnancy and fertility. In ancient folklore, Nona was called on by pregnant women in their ninth month of pregnancy before childbirth.
Nona was founded by two women and best friends (and also certified holistic health and nutrition coaches!) who are passionate about uplifting women in society. We believe that being in tune with our bodies can make us women more empowered and confident in our daily lives.
Our goal is to make better period products and education about Women's reproductive health easily accessible for all women in Indonesia. We wanted to make sure that the products we use for our intimate areas are always comfortable, non-toxic, and impactful to our community.
Fighting Period Poverty
In Indonesia, period products and education are not readily available or easily accessible to everyone. Many girls here don't have the privilege to learn about menstrual health because of the social stigma surrounding it. Nona was made to break the taboo and normalize period talk.
At Nona, we advocate for nationwide menstrual equality through education and better access to feminine hygiene products. With each purchase, we distribute a portion of our profits to help underprivileged Nonas of Indonesia with menstrual hygiene kits, educational workshops, and support systems through our community partners.
Period care should not be a luxury. It's a basic human right.
