We empower people to care for their periods in a healthy and sustainable way.
We do this in three boss steps
We create high-performance products with no compromises that simplify period care to support healthy and sustainable living.
We foster a global community of people who make deliberate and clear choices in their lives—people who do more with less, and have honest and inspiring conversations that bring awareness and help end menstrual shame.
With our partners, we empower women and girls in need by providing education and life skills training. We understand that investing in women is the fastest and most effective way of changing a community. When you help a woman, you create change for generations.
"My family had gone months without period care... No one should have to experience that."

We are Cherie and Amber, founders of Saalt.
Cherie was talking with family in Venezuela who had gone for months without staple hygiene items. Cherie has an insatiable penchant for the practical, and felt strongly about empowering people to take care of themselves. Three months later, Cherie was sourcing reusable menstrual products for hundreds of friends, just to be nice. She would catch Amber before leaving on road trips to neighboring states and send garbage bags full of supplies to deliver. (These kinds of things are Cherie’s idea of a hobby. Not joking).
Cherie started asking for custom changes to her orders, and naturally wanted to create the perfect menstrual cup. Amber encouraged Cherie to combine her two passions—better period-care and empowerment for people who are marginalized because of their periods and circumstances. Amber, who had sold her own business (a chocolate shop) a couple years earlier, figured it was pretty much the most natural progression possible to go from selling chocolate to period care. So she and Cherie joined to start Saalt.
We called it Saalt because it is symbolic of a basic, essential element. Periods too are a basic and essential part of human life. We believed the best approach to period care should be just as distinct, simple, and elemental.
We created Saalt with the simple goal to give people an option to care for themselves and others in a better way.
