Tabu, a sexual wellness company made primarily for women in peri-to post-menopause, just announced that The Kit will be sold on goop, the modern lifestyle brand founded by Gwyneth Paltrow.

Tabu are ​committed to helping women embrace sexual wellness routines as a natural way to address common menopausal symptoms including vaginal atrophy, dryness, low libido, incontinence, stress, and more.

Designed in partnership with clinicians, therapists, and a cohort of women (ages 41 – 71), The Kit includes a personal massager that simulates the function of a dilator, lubricant made of organic ingredients, and educational content – everything you need so confidently kick-off and maintain a sexual wellness routine.

Key Features of The Kit

Why providers choose The Kit over other sexual wellness products for peri- to post-menopausal women.

The Personal Massager

  • Shape: The shape of the massager simulates the function of a dilator. Dilators help to maintain vaginal width, length, and tone, but many providers expressed difficulty getting women to commit to regular use.
  • Warming: The benefits of regular stimulation involving the vulva and vagina is to promote blood flow to the genitals and natural secretions that maintain vaginal health. During Tabu’s research and product development, one gynecologist and menopause care specialist they spoke to early on, Dr. Barb DePree, shared that a warming feature would not only increase comfort, but also further stimulate blood flow (which gets harder as our hormone levels change). Tabu pitched this idea of Dr. DePree’s to dozens of providers during their product research and found nearly unanimous support. Today, Dr. DePree is on Tabu’s advisory board.
  • Intensity: One key complaint among providers was finding personal massagers with strong enough settings for women who may have lost sensation over time. Powerful settings would help women enjoy and find pleasure in the experience (which has physical and emotional benefits of its own).

The Personal Lubricant

  • Water-based: This makes the lubricant safe to use with tools as well as with a partner.
  • Organic ingredients: Made from organic aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and natural plant extracts. Soft and smooth, the formula is rich in omega-6 essential fatty acids to protect from dryness, and plant-based antioxidants to soothe and calm sensitive areas.
