Update – The website now shows a new design cup, which looks very similar in design to the Lena.   It also (incorrectly) says the cup is FDA approved – note no cups are FDA approved)

Jasmine Cup

jasmine

Official website (jasminecup.com) has been unavailable for several years.  Seems to have only been available on places like ebay.

Country of origin: China?
Composition: Silicone
Sizes:  “1” (small), “2” (large)
Dimensions:  Some debate on the sizing, since the official measurements the company gave were not what users measured it at.
Capacity: unknown
Stem: Flat Tab
Measuring Lines: 7.5 and 15ml on the inside.
Been around since: 2012?
Unique Design?: No (There are other cups with similar designs available)
Other Details: According to the Live Journal post, ‘Jasmine Cup’ and ‘Made in Canada’ are written in small, raised letters on the inside rim.  This cup was reportedly like a cross between a Diva and a Lunette.  http://menstrual-cups.livejournal.com/3015476.html

Currently (Jan 2015) there is a listing on http://www.weiku.com for a cup they call a “W menstrual Cup” which shows the Jasmine Cup box with “Rockbrook” watermark – though says it comes in pink and shows one of the current generation pink generic boxed (iCare) menstrual cups.  That listing is by the Rockbrook company (who also produces the iCare cups as well as other cups and a softcup ripoff).  So I wonder if the old Jasmine Cups are being sold now as “iCare”?

The page often has trouble loading for me, so here’s a screenshot
