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 women 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 women an option to care for themselves and others in a better way.
