about saral

Saral Designs, is a Mumbai based start-up, working on increasing access to high quality affordable sanitary napkins using a smart distributed manufacturing technology developed in-house.

Founded in 2015, Saral aims to create a better future in menstrual hygiene and sanitation using product design, machine technology and innovative delivery mechanisms.

In developing countries, due to poor infrastructure, either distribution costs make the products 60% more expensive in voluminous products like pads and diapers, or the existing brands not catering to remote locations.

We are able to reach the 80% of the women who do not use hygienic menstrual products by solving the problem of access and affordability.
