On Women’s Day, IIT students launch roll-on that promises to relieve period pain

IIT-Delhi incubated startup Sanfe on Friday launched an offering that promises to make women’s lives easier every month: a roll-on to relieve period pain. Launched on International Women’s Day, the Sanfe Period Pain Roll-on will allieviate menstrual cramps and ease mood swings.

The essential oil-based roll-on is naturally formulated and has been medically tested and FDA approved. Sanfe Period Pain Relief Roll-On, available in 10 ml bottles, costs Rs 10 for a single use.

Sanfe was co-founded by Archit Agarwal and Harry Sehrawat, third year BTech students at IIT-Delhi. The roll-on was developed by them with the help of their professor, Dr Srinivasan Venkataraman.

“Women comprise 50 percent of our population and a significant portion of this population experiences pain and cramps during menstrual period. Therefore, this becomes an important problem to solve,” said Srinivasan, a Professor of the Department of Design.

Archit and Harry previously launched Sanfe Stand & Pee on World Toilet Day, last year. The device enables women to stand and urinate, preventing Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) infections from unhygienic public washrooms.

Menstrual cramps often come in the way of women’s daily routine and companies have been developing feminine products to fight this. Brands, including Peesafe and Sensur, have also launched roll-ons to ease menstrual cramps.

Archit and Harry’s eureka moment was when one of their friends complained of not performing well in the semester exam, due to period pain.

“We realised that period pain forces over 40 percent of women to miss their daily routine. Motivated by this, we started working on a solution to relieve women from menstrual cramps,” the duo said.

They spent seven months on Research & Development. “We don’t want women to suffer because of a natural body function. We figured this problem and designed the roll-on,” said Archit, a BTech Textile Technology student.

Women's Day: T-Hub, Anthill Launch Smart Women Angels Network in India

T-Hub on Tuesday said it along with Anthill, a speed scaling platform for early-growth stage startups, has launched a international startup initiative in India – the Smart Women Angels Network (SWAN).

T-Hub is a startup incubator set up by the Telangana Government to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit in women and create awareness about investing and recognising the need for women investors, T-Hub and Anthill have launched SWAN, a release said.

SWAN, which has its roots in Barcelona has now spread its wings to reach India to create a network of women angel investors who will then collaborate with their counterparts from across the world to interact with and invest in startups, it said.

Jay Krishnan, CEO, T-Hub said, “To encourage women to be active members of the ecosystem, T-Hub in collaboration with Anthill, has launched SWAN in India. We truly believe this reputed programme will not only suffuse the culture in the country, but change the dynamics of the community to make it more inclusive.”

Prasad Vanga, founder and CEO, Anthill said, “With the launch of SWAN, we want to boost the presence of more women investors in India.”

Cristina Ventura, president of SWAN and an Angel and Fund-of-Funds Investor, said, “The percentage of women investors around the world is very less. For example, in the US just 20 percent of the investors are women, in Europe it is 5 pe cent, in the UK it is 14 percent while in Spain it is just 8 percent. In India, the numbers are very low.”

“SWAN believes in creating an inclusive network that can make a positive difference,” added Ventura.

'I Feel Safe' Women's Safety App Launched
A mobile application “I Feel Safe” aimed at helping women ensure their safety in the national capital was launched at Delhi University on Tuesday.

“For centuries, women in India have suffered social strictures and abuse. It is important to change societal mindsets so that every girl of our country receives the respect which is her due and shines in life in her chosen field be it science, engineering, medicine, sports, dance, music or any other field of human endeavour,” Union Minister Harsh Vardhan said.

The app works across India on all mobile networks and sends near real-time updates about the location of the mobile user.
“I appreciate the support and motivation that the youth of this country and the government have given to Nirbhaya Jyoti Trust and the cause of Indian women in the last four years.

It is my fervent wish that every girl should be able to live a wholesome life and step out of home without the fear of molestation and violence,” Nirbhaya’s mother Asha Devi said.

In an emergency, the app notifies the user’s emergency contacts with the longitude and latitude of their current location.

It places an automatic call to the national emergency number 100 and the location of the potential victim is tracked every 30 seconds and made available to their emergency contacts, emergency call centre team, who then reach out to provide support, to overcome the emergency situation.
