The reusable pad is developed by Archit Agarwal and Harry Sehrawat based on inputs from several IIT Delhi professors. "The reusable pads are ultra-thin and are highly absorbent with Quadrant True Lock Technology which makes the pad leak-proof and avoids creating any rashes," Archit told media while launching the pads.

A patent has also been filed for the design.

These reusable sanitary pads can be used up to 120 times after washing them in cold water with detergent after every use.

A Reusable Sanitary Pad is made up of four layers of different fabrics. A pack of two pads is priced at Rs 199.

The start-up is already exporting its products to Nepal and is in talks with some Arab and African nations.

"We have provided samples to authorities in African nations who are currently conducting the test on them. We hope for a positive result very soon," Archit added.
