Unique Design?: No (There are other cups with similar designs available)
Other Details: Available in colors.  They were running a giveaway where they were selling the cup for $1 each to people (US only) in return for an “honest review” on Amazon.  Originally these cups had a smooth stem, but now they appear to have grip lines on the stem.

 

The shape/design of the cup looks very similar to cups being sold as the Aneer, Cup’ax and Dutchess cups.  See Similar/rebranded cups.  Promotional images looks very similar to these cups being sold in bulk.

Their website claims the cup is FDA approved (which is false).

Their Amazon listing used to say the cup was made from Food-Grade silicone, but has been changed to say medical grade:

A Chinese cup manufacturer shows an image of the Blossom Cup pouch and instruction booklet on one of their listings, making it appear that this company is the supplier for the Blossom Cup.

  1. Both their site and Amazon both say (as of 12-8-15) that they are made out of medical grade silicone. Hopefully they did actually change them, and didn’t just change the info because of concern, as I recently bought one for myself and my daughter. A recent review on Amazon (Nov 22, I think) stated the food-grade info, as well.

  2. If you check the FDA website you can see that the have been clear to be sold in USA as mentrual
    Cup with medical grade silicone. I check November 2016 and they were listed there.

  3. Yes, they are in my list of FDA registered cups. However they are not “approved” by the FDA (see my linked article on FDA registration/approval), and when they launched their website with that claim, they were not even FDA registered.
