“Period care as a category in India lacks research and open conversation and has been unable to create a habit shift for users to sustainable options,” said Devidutta Dash, CEO and Founder of Lemme Be.
“The period space has for a long time ignored sustainability. Companies have marketed disposable period products for decades but haven’t always been transparent about the ingredients used to make them. Period care has to be sustainable,” said Sanjay Ramakrishnan, Partner at Multiply Ventures.
Its turnover is about Rs 10 crore. It is currently procuring products from India and China. It now has 70 people working for it. Lemme Be products are available on its website and popular e-commerce sites.
