Carmesi, feminine hygiene brand founded by Tanvi Johri
In 2017, with a mission to make periods safer for women, has launched its first-ever cramp relief air-activated heat patches that are made of 100% natural ingredients.
As a re-enforcement of its commitment towards ending period pain, the brand has introduced yet another pioneering innovation that will significantly help ease the lives of women who suffer from mild to moderate period cramps.
Debate on whether there should be menstrual leaves to ease the issue of women
According to the Maya Health Survey 2017, it was reported that India ranks distressingly low when it comes to unhealthy menstrual cycles. The report also indicated that 68% of women have severe period-related symptoms such as cramps and bloating. This sparked a nationwide debate on whether there should be menstrual leaves to ease the issue of women. A couple of companies actually went ahead with sanctioning period leaves. A recent study by British Medical Journal in 2019 reported that menstrual symptoms like period pain may be linked to approximately 9 days of lost productivity per woman every year.

Many girls have reportedly missed classes in schools and universities due to period pain. Period pain directly impacts their concentration levels as well as performance in class. Similarly, working women who have to travel for work-related meetings find it extremely inconvenient. These insights led to the genesis of Carmesi’s cramp relief air-activated heat patches, an effective solution to help women combat period pain without compromising on their productivity.
Carmesi’s air-activated, cramp-relief heat patches are made with 100% natural ingredients such as Iron, Salt, Water, Activated Carbon, Moisture Absorber, Vermiculite that help in providing instant pain relief. Carmesi heat patches are designed to emit heat as soon as they come in contact with the atmosphere and provide pain relief for up to 8 hours.
