” Heroes continue to rise. @suhani is an IIT Bombay graduate who moved from banking to entrepreneurship & started making sanitary pads. She wanted to convert her machines to making masks & reached out to my Executive Assistant Shruti, her junior at IIT. A sequel to the movie ‘Padman!’ Young, idealistic entrepreneurs, who wanted to speedily convert their sanitary pad machine to surgical mask production ally with an auto company & succeed just 100 hours after the 1st correspondence. The future of business might be paved with such win-win alliances… “

Saral Approach

Technology is at the heart of our solution. We believe that local production and distribution can disrupt the largely under served hygiene products market. We have developed the first indigenously designed and patented automatic ultra-thin Sanitary Pad making machine, called “Swachh” in India at a decentralized scale. While decentralization cuts down the distribution costs, the automated production ensures economies of scale and product quality. Responding to the COVID crisis, we modified our sanitary pad making machines to produce 3-ply surgical masks to meet the increase in demand for high fileteration efficiency and reliable masks to protect against the spread of the Coronavirus.

These high-quality sanitary pads and masks are distributed online, through various retail channels and in partnerships with health care workers, schools and nonprofits to increase awareness and accessibility at the last mile.
