Dusk is a Copenhagen based femtech start-up founded by Christina Høgh Selmer Kirk and Sine Cecilie Laub with a mission to improve womxn’s intimate health. This might sound a bit fluffy or even self-righteous. But listen. A lot of us are already aware of the pesticides in produce, and many are also aware of the chemicals that are in many beauty products. But personally, we were surprised by how many of our intimate products (shaver, period pads, tampons etc.) that contain harmful ingredients such as perfume, plastic, endocrine disruptors like Phthalates, BPA and PFCs. Even a shaver you use in the most intimate places has hormone-disruptors. This realization initiated the journey to create a kind and sustainable service for womxn's intimate health and for our planet. Their first limited collection is out now and is a range of kind shaving products.
Christina and Sine are uniting their two different backgrounds to create change.
For more than a decade Christina has worked with Healthtech innovation, business development and sustainability. Living with the hormonal imbalance PCOS she has a passion for creating awareness about hormonal balance and breaking taboos around womxn’s intimate health.
Besides working in advertising Sine’s true passion is telling stories and creating awareness about menstrual equity and women's liberation in all its forms. She has written a book about the cultural history of menstruation which started an intense debate that is still vibrating.
