Country of origin: Brazil/USA
Composition:Hypoallergenic Silicone” (From Dow Corning, but doesn’t mention medical grade)
Sizes:  Small & Large
Dimensions:  Small = 40mm diameter. Large = 46mm diameter
Capacity: Small = 25ml.  Large = 28ml.
Stem: Long Flat Tab with hole
Measuring Lines: Unknown
Cost (RRP): R 97.90 (for 2) [Currency Converter]
Been around since: 2015 (The Brazillian FB page started 25th October 2015.  The .com website was registered July 2015)
Unique design?:Sort of (There are other cups with similar design available, although this design is different to the others)
Other Details:  The hole in the stem could perhaps be to thread a string through, for those who have a high cervix?   Some cups appear to be pale, some are vibrant.  It appears you get 1 pink and 1 purple in each pack.

These screenshots from Youtube Videos uploaded in November and December 2015 shows the cups as pale and as vibrant/dark colours.   The more recent video shows the darker colours, so they might have changed the silicone formulation between when they made the cups shown in the centre video (filmed sometime around Christmas, given the tree), and when they filmed the video that shows the cup mold?  Unfortunately I can’t translate what is being said in the videos, so the change in colour might be referenced in there.  The change in colour might be why they filmed that video.

The darker cup colour video also shows the mold and silicone they use!

Older photos show older designs of the tab stem without hole, and a different shape stem.

The US version of the website has (as of Jan 2016) a message saying they are closed and will reopen with new marketing…..

Other Details: The old “Miss Cup” (which you can see in the pic above had inciclo branding) is now being sold as an “InCiclo” brand cup and the old website/domain (http://www.misscup.com.br) is no longer there, but a subdomain (http://loja.misscup.com.br) of it is still active.  Their website says: “Carbon emissions as a result of the packaging printing process, are compensated by planting native trees of the Atlantic Forest.” which is great!
