Search this forum with each of those names - we've had long discussions on each one and the benefits/drawbacks of each.

i searched here too before buying mine. I havent tried them all so I can't offer any comparison. Probably they are all good and any differences would just be person-to-person.
Do post back if you come up with anything definitive.

hmm...i did some seraching and found a few short threads. this seemed to be the longest. http://www.mothering.com/discussions...iva+cup&page=2

in summary, the moon cup and keeper are both made in the USA, same design, only the moon cup is medical grade silicone and the keeper is latex, so the moon cup can be boiled to clean and the keeper requires vinager soaking. also, latex sensitivities. the diva cup is also medical grade silicone and is a little different shape than the keeper/moon cup. i believe the moon cup is a little shorter.

i am off to order a diva and can't wait to try it. this is the best price online i have found: http://www.southcoastshopping.com/?p...48f9653b1a8ec2

HTH!!

Well, you are sort of correct.

There are two moon cups.
One is made in the UK and is the original Moon Cup.

One is made in the US and is made by the Keeper company, and is just a silicone Keeper. Some have questioned the ethical issues surrounding the Keeper company's decision to name their silicone version the same name as an already existing product. They also bought up the mooncup website name. If you want the UK mooncup, you have to go to http://www.mooncup.co.uk

Be aware: some people have bought a "mooncup" advertised as the Mooncup UK version from ebay and actually got a Keeper Mooncup.

I ordered a Diva cup too. I have a keeper, but I'm tired of doing the vinegar soak thing to clean, and the funky gum rubber smell. I want to see how the Diva does.

ah...that makes a lot more sense. Thanks! i couldn't figure out why the moon cup has its own website with all UK info and then there is a mooncup on the keeper website and it says both are made in the USA.

so can anyone comment on the mooncup USA vs the mooncup UK?
