Company Description
Callaly is a new British femcare company based in London. Since the tampon became available in the 1930s, its design has remained largely unaltered - despite most women needing to use a separate liner 'just in case'. We thought it was time for a change, so we've launched the Tampliner®, the first patented product to completely rethink how a tampon could work.

We are actively building a team of dynamic, hard-working and fun team players, all keen to deliver an exceptional product driven by purpose and without compromise. We are a certified B Corporation, with part of our profits helping to improve quality of life and access to healthcare for people with periods around the world.
